A visual storyteller with a passion for genuine connection, Kelsea Olivia, is a NYC-based, California-born, wild-hearted entrepreneur. Motivated by her lifelong dream to create beauty in the world, Kelsea and her women-led boutique creative agency, East Olivia, harness their talents to conceive, design and build sustainable one-of-a-kind floral works.
Through ephemeral beauty in blooms, East Olivia fosters an intimate bond between the viewer and their work, creating tangible experiences for their clients. From large-scale installations at the Flatiron Building to defining event aesthetics at Create & Cultivate summits across the country, East Olivia executes impactful works of art and advertising that once viewed are not easily forgotten.
East Olivia has been at the forefront of designing with dried and preserved flowers for over 6 years! Before the pandemic, East Olivia was a successful, women led creative agency that previously created immaculate floral event designs for major companies like Netflix, Spotify, Create & Cultivate, Google, MasterCard, La Croix, Amazon, Teen Vogue, Anthropologie, and many more. Forced to shift her events-based company amidst the pandemic, Founder Kelsea Olivia brilliantly transitioned East Olivia into an extremely popular E-Commerce Floral Boutique. This allowed Kelsea to keep her entire team employed, which was extremely important to her, and allowed her to expand East Olivia’s beautiful designs to be available for everyone! Additionally, East Olivia is eco-friendly, striving to source sustainable preserved ingredients whenever possible and treat all flowers with a 100% plant-based, biodegradable preservation formula.
Kelsea’s foundation of empowerment, self-connection and collaborative growth defines the atmosphere of ease and beauty that is evident in all East Olivia creates. You can often find her before sunrise, in the local flower market with her beloved French Bulldog, Henri. There, she will select fresh blooms for a bespoke floral arrangement inspired by someone that has positively influenced her or perhaps for a backyard tablescape enjoyed by friends and family come sunset.
Their upcoming Spring Flower Therapy Box is the perfect interactive gift for any flower lover, whether gifting for Earth Day, Mother’s Day, or just in celebration of Spring – the Spring collection will be available on 3/26!
“Every day I am driven by the fact that any success I achieve, any milestone East Olivia reaches, is only accomplishable because of the women that came before me and the women that work alongside me. And that makes us all a part of something much greater, a lineage that will hopefully embolden the next generation of groundbreaking women.” – Kelsea Olivia.
