Meet the Founder 

and Our Passion

Flora, Event and Wedding Designer

Are you searching for a dedicated and passionate flower designer, event decorator, or unique and exclusive wedding planner, ready to bring your vision to life in New York? If so, your search is finally over. You are in the right place!

My name is Martha Powers, founder of Belle Petal Events.  I am an event flower designer, born in Colombia and currently based in Long Island, NY.  From my early elementary school days, I have always had a passion for art, design, and flowers.  Although I was not able to pursue this as a career initially, I found ways to express my creativity in every way possible - from designing my children's birthday parties to redecorating rooms in our home.  As my children grew older, I happily passed on my passion to them, and they now enjoy bringing their own creativity and vision to projects they work on.


Upon my eldest daughter's request, I took on the responsibility of tending to her exquisite indoor plants during her absence. The sheer beauty of her plants sparked a newfound inspiration within me, compelling me to sow flower seeds of my own. Ever since that moment, I have been diligently planting hundreds of flowers and nurturing my garden.  Every spring, I eagerly nurture my garden, finding joy in the awe-inspiring blossoms it produces.


I earned my flower designer certificate and graduated from FlowerSchool in New York.  Attending FlowerSchool NY opened the doors to the flower industry for me and gave me the confidence to continue learning and growing to pursue my dreams.  Participating in their many workshops and brushing shoulders with renowned designers in the floral industry made me feel right at home and eager to master the trade myself.
