jessica christoferson | proprietor
Jessica first became interested in floral design while studying abroad and interning with one of London’s leading florists. After graduating from Cornell University with a degree in design, she worked for several major retail and event florists in the Chicago area. When she and her husband Mike decided to move to New England, they fell in love with the historic town of Exeter; Jessica opened cymbidium floral there in April 2005. Known for her striking color combinations & love of texture, Jessica’s signature arrangements have a distinctive quality that make them uniquely beautiful. When not in the shop, Jessica can be found spending time with her husband and their kids, Cooper and Ella.
theresa frampton | floral designer
Theresa has been in the floral industry since 1985, and can figure out a solution to just about any floral dilemma. Working alongside Jessica since 2005, Theresa’s love for her job can be seen in countless creations, including, but not limited to, the perfect wrist corsage (too many to count), beautiful bridal bouquets and everyday arrangements. Theresa’s creative spirit doesn’t end with flowers; her other ventures include painting & jewelry design. She also keeps her co-workers fueled with mouthwatering sandwiches at lunchtime that are just as “pretty” as they are tasty. Away from the shop, you might find her coaching or on the sidelines supporting one of her four daughters’ sports teams, or biking with her husband.
stacey grady | floral designer
Stacey relishes the idea that her job is essentially to make people smile. Part of the team since 2009, Stacey has embraced cymbidium’s low & lush style working side by side with Jessica and co-designer Theresa. With a degree in Interior Design from Endicott College in Beverly, Massachusetts, Stacey spent several years in the healthcare design field followed by several years in the residential design world, creating nurseries and children’s rooms. Her eye for color and attention to detail allows for thoughtful & expressive floral designs. When not in the shop she can be found basking in the sun or working in the garden with her husband… whom she happened to meet in the shop and who ultimately proposed there a year later.
