We had the good fortune of connecting with Ashley Borum and Tara Lukrofka and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ashley and Tara, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Tara and I have always shared a passion of one day designing with flowers. We have been in the interior design industry for over 15 years and wanted to enhance our ability to be creative through another outlet. What started out as small talk in the office, grew into a dream come true during the height of the Pandemic. “We figured what do we have to lose?”

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
We are a mobile flower cart who enjoys popping up all over The Valley. We love being apart of special events and creating joy for others. Petals and Pedals is not only a flower cart but can be rented as a dessert cart, beverage cart, or used in styled photoshoots. We are here to help you create that Instagram Moment!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Oh where should we start in The Valley of the Sun!!?? First, we would do a morning hike at McDowell Mountain, then for breakfast we head to O.H.S.O. brewery for their Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s. After that, we head to Scottsdale Quarter to shop until we drop! Next up, dinner at our favorite Buck & Rider. You have to go during happy hour for the specialty cocktails and then stay for a yummy dinner. Voodoo Fried Rice is a must and obviously you need to get the fresh chucked oyster on the half shell. Amazing!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
We would like to thank our family and friends for all their love and support. Also, we appreciate all of our admirers who take pictures with our cart!
