A Little History
With entrepreneurial spirit and a lot of sweat equity, Erik Duran founded Duran Floral Design in 2014. After more than a decade of event experience, Erik seized the opportunity to start his own shop. To some, it may have been a crazy dream, but to Erik, it's a beautiful reality.
The Duran Floral Design team is an extended family of flower enthusiasts. They aim to make your event not only memorable but exceptional.
Erik emigrated from El Salvador to the United States in 2003. Little did he know the vegetation and flowers that surrounded him growing up would become so interwoven with who he is today. Visits home are chances to reexamine the beauty of his tropical heritage. Personal favorites are crisp white orchids, complex proteas, and a simply perfect monstera leaf.
When not at the shop, Erik can be found jogging or at the gym in part to balance out his sweet tooth! If it is summer he is beach-bound to relax in the sun.
In 2020 the world changed forever with the pandemic. It was a year for reflection and perseverance. Feeling fortunate for the strong unity among the event business friends and colleagues, Erik has faith that together we will grow stronger than ever.
Meet the team
With more than 25 years of experience in the event industry, Sallyanne feels fortunate to be surrounded by flowers and creating every day. Outside of the shop, she's likely growing flowers in her garden, crafting with her daughter, or exploring one of the local bike trails on her pretty pink bike.
Jeovanny is the ultimate organizer and motivator. When in need, he is your person to get it done. If there is a roar of laughter, chances are Jeovanny is behind it. In contrast, he is an avid reader and likes to relax with a good book. A perfect day would be reading at the beach.
A chance meeting brought Anna Ruth to Duran Floral Design. Her former life was in business. Luckily she traded the suits for a florist knife. Her keen sense of design and her desire to learn has made her a valuable part of the team. Salsa dancing is one of her favorite activities. Dare you to keep up!
Dhina knows how to make a party sparkle. Attention to detail and quality control is her specialty. Her singing and fun stories shine just as brightly. She loves vibrant red roses almost as much as she loves baseball. Go Nats!
From day one, Raul has been multi-tasking with endless energy. Handling the varied needs of a small business makes for interesting days. With a busy work schedule, Raul takes time for the fun things in life. He makes time to cook delicious Guatemalan recipes and is always ready for a road trip adventure.
Christina is another super multi-tasker. Her bright spirit and helpful nature are a highlight in the busy shop. Christina places great care in maintaining the fresh flowers and vast inventory. Amazingly she can maintain her perfectly manicured nails which can only be described as works of art.
