Floral Play LLC

Hoba Smith (Owner)

Metro St. Louis Area


What Wedding Workshop has to say about this Partner:

Her social media images of floral creations drew us in, but the conversations we have had with her told us that we had to work together!  Hoba of Floral Play started her journey working in wedding venues where her attention to detail sparked the idea of opening her own business.  She went through an intense training program to sharpen her skills and she cares deeply about client service.  We love that we share the belief that everyone deserves beautiful things on their wedding day and we are proud to be working side-by-side with Hoba.

What makes you different?

Floral Play is owned and ran by an African American woman. Black Magic isn’t just a trending hashtag, it’s a real thing. Being a black woman in her 20’s who owns her own business in St. Louis is a unique resource that is driven by purpose and passion. Floral Play thrives on the ability to communicate effectively and listen intently to the visual desire of every client, while imagining every detailed word.
