Petals on Purpose

The Mother-Daughter Duo Behind Delphine Floral

After working with luxury brands in New York City, Kat Romanelli moved to Central Texas in 2020. Her mother Laura Romanelli, a self-described “serial entrepreneur,” sold her businesses in New Mexico and also relocated. 

“I worked in finance in Austin, and I longed to be a creative again,” Kat shares. In 2022, Kat and Laura fulfilled their dream of owning a business together when they purchased Wild Bunches, a wedding floral business in Dripping Springs.

“We both have art degrees and became florists. We translated our experience with color palettes and composition to floral design.” The business exploded and expanded to open a storefront, Delphine Floral.

“We saw a gap in the market and brought Delphine, a community-centered, European-influenced flower shop to Dripping Springs. A floral bar where you can walk in, see the work happening, and pick loose flowers to build your own floral designs.”

“Beauty for beauty’s sake is important,” Kat remarks. “Flowers are such a simple thing that make people so happy. It’s really special to give someone joy that easily, especially in this day and age.”

Kat expresses, “It’s risky to put yourself out there creatively with a concept you love, and you hope others feel the same way. It’s fulfilling to see floral classes selling out, full of women who don’t know each other and leave exchanging phone numbers with new friends.”

“People are our ‘why,’” Laura shares. “It stems from a mindset of living in a small community where everyone knows everyone.” Kat adds, “I love having the full creative capacity to create someone’s day, thinking about how to make their life more beautiful, from best days to hard days.”

“Delphine is an artfully designed space for our community to find beauty in the everyday. We offer floral design workshops, unique gifts, arrangements, subscriptions, deliveries, private events and more.”
