For me, flowers have always
been a way of life.

My childhood memories are filled with days spent digging up my parents’ garden to make room for more hydrangeas and peonies. I’d save my money all summer long to buy a special rose bush, only to be disappointed when I failed to make it bloom (to be fair, my mother warned me). As I grew older, I learned to nourish and care for my flowers and began to reap the beautiful rewards of my hard work. 


 My love for flower arranging was sparked at the age of 10 when I entered a dried flower and pheasant wreath into the Wasatch County Fair. Every year thereafter I entered the contest, and at 14 I took home my first blue ribbon. A florist in Park City, Utah took notice of my affinity for arrangements and offered me my first job.

I may have been young, but I was hooked. I had found my passion; I found my joy.

Five Penny Floral is a labor of love, named for the woman who’s love and devotion I will forever cherish. My mother’s maiden name was Nichols, from which she received the childhood nickname of “Five Penny.” 

I had always wanted to open my own flower shop and had even done a few weddings for family and friends, but it wasn’t until after my mother passed suddenly in 2008 did I decide it was time to bring my dreams to fruition. 

I’m so in love with what I do. My personal driving force is joy – it’s the reason I sculpt living works of art and it inspires every design I create. Getting to know my clients, hearing their stories and learning what brings them joy allows me to build personal arrangements that reach out and touch a piece of their hearts. 

As for my Five Penny, she is always with me. She is my greatest muse and biggest cheerleader, and she is right there next to me in spirit as I try to make the world a little more beautiful, one flower at a time.

“Josh is incredible!! He was so excited to do my bouquet, did it better than I could have imagined, and quoted us LESS than the budget that we had given him. He was such an important part of our wedding day and everyone should work with him!”
