There’s no better way to accentuate a home than with a handmade floral arrangement or two. Over the years, Stephanie Shabaz has done many gorgeous floral displays for charities, small events, parties, homes, etc. “It was always a passion of mine,” she says. “You’ll never come to my house and not see multiple arrangements.” After much thought and an extra push from her husband and friends, Petal Pusher Miami was born. The company offers weekly, bi-weekly and monthly subscriptions; from bud vase to grand arrangements. Her designs are stunning and eclectic, thanks to her self-trained techniques. She pushes the boundaries and creates accent pieces that come naturally to her. “I was so worried about how I could make my career work after having my first child,” she says. “But now, as a mompreneur, I was able to give birth to something that would complement my new role as a mother while allowing me to remain creative.”; PetalPusherMiami.com.
