Sunshine & Poppies

A customer-based, bespoke floral designer

Welcome!  My name is Kris Mitchke, and I am so excited to be your personal floral designer.  My joy comes not only from celebrating nature’s beauty but also from being an attentive listener, as I strive to understand the preferences of my clients to craft artistic arrangements that are truly custom and one-of-a-kind.  By immersing myself in your ideas, favorite color palettes, and any special affection for certain flowers, I meticulously bring your vision to life and create bespoke displays that become a distinct, heartfelt representation of your emotions and sentiments.  My goal is to make your experience exceptional.

I am committed to sustainability in my effort to be a good steward of Mother Earth by sourcing seasonal blooms and local flowers when available.  By thrifting and reusing unique vessels and containers, I reduce waste and create a tailor-made design for each client.

I guarantee the freshness of my floral designs and want you to be proud to share my work with your loved ones.  Thank you for supporting my small business!

What customers are saying

Bursting with life and vitality

“I received 8 dozen beautiful roses and hadn’t a clue what to do with them.  Enter Kris Mitchke of Sunshine & Poppies.  WOW!  Kris did it all!  She created the vision, chose the vases, prepped the roses, selected the greenery, and created not one, but four amazing arrangements.  Through her flower art she transformed me and the flowers into something bursting with life and vitality.  Thank you for making me feel like the roses look.”


Stunning floral arrangements

“I trust Kris’s skill, imagination, and artistry to pull together stunning floral arrangements.  My recipients have been overjoyed after receiving their bouquets and I have finally found my ‘go-to’ florist.  I never hesitate to recommend Sunshine & Poppies!”

This is a million-dollar event

“I think of these flowers weekly!  I will always remember walking into the American Cancer Society Hope Gala’s reception room and being awed by the Sunshine & Poppies floral designs on each table.  My first thought was that ‘this is a million-dollar event’ – and that night, we raised $1M for the first time in our 15-year history.  Kris and Sunshine & Poppies generously donated their services to the American Cancer Society Hope Gala in September 2023.  I could not recommend her enough!”

– Amanda Torfi, Senior Director, American Cancer Society
