Starkey and Co
Hi, I'm Valerie Starkey, sole owner of Starkey and Co. Well, kinda sole owner. I definitely couldn't do all this without the support and some help from my husband, Jason. I'm also a mom of 2 boys, Hank is 9 and Hunter is 6. Typical boys…climbing trees, getting dirty and a whole lot of running in the house.
After having our first son, we realized how quickly things move at the speed of life and how valuable our time really is. So I decided to step out of the 9-5 “suit and jacket” and turn my hobbies into a home business. And that's just what I did. I have been in the floral industry for 20+ years and absolutely loved every minute of it, but the demanding hours and working holidays did not fit in my ideal family vision. So my alternative was to find a way to combine my passion and family. From that, Starkey and Co was born.
How I cater to offbeat weddings
StarkeyandCo offers a wide selection of Paper Flowers, Custom Paper Wedding Bouquets, Boutonnieres, Corsages, and much more. We can make a single bloom or Paper Flowers for an entire Wedding party. All of our Book Page Creations are handmade from recycled books that may have ended up tossed in the garbage and forgot about. We take pride in giving these pages a new life. Please feel free to message us via Etsy with any special requests or questions.
