Meet Helen Olivia Flowers | Alexandria Florist

Flowers are the details that make your moments memorable

(and we just so happen to be crazy about the details)

Call it a healthy obsession

Hand-picking our favorite blooms out of hundreds of varieties is only the start of it.

We’re just as big on the finer points you don’t see, but feel—like the way we pour into our local community and take pride in cultivating relationships with our customers.

That’s what makes Helen Olivia Flowers a fan favorite.

Because when it matters to you, it matters to us.

A family-run business

Helen Olivia started out as a picturesque flower shop named after the original husband-and-wife owners’ grandmothers.

When we bought the business, we kept the family name and spirit of the Old Town Alexandria flower shop alive. 

Although we were new to the flower business, entrepreneurship and a love for flowers were in our DNA. What started as a wild idea grew into a bigger business than we could have dreamed of.

But when it comes to serving customers like you, it’s as personal as it gets.

With gratitude,

Rachel & Chuck

Rachel & Charles “Chuck” Gang, co-owners

As high school sweethearts, we grew our entrepreneurial instincts working in the events industry together. We sit on the board of Alexandria Stylebook and are members of The Scout Guide.

Meet our hardworking crew

With 7 decades of combined experience in the floral and events industries, it’s safe to say we’re wild about flowers.
