Spreading Sunshine in Chester County
Do you know someone who could use a little sunshine?
The Steele Orchid design process requires us to purchase a wide variety of beautiful flowers for use in our arrangements. Due to the nature of the fresh flower business and our unique design process we find left over, yet still beautiful stems that yearn to join a bouquet.
Our commitment to the West Chester community inspires us to use these stems to create floral masterpieces designed to bring joy to those in need.
The Steele Orchid team creatively uses these left over stems to build beautiful floral arrangements and bouquets designed to delight. Once completed, these floral masterworks are transported to local churches and nursing facilities to be given to those who could benefit from the warmth and delight fresh flower arrangements bring to our lives.
Steele Orchid firmly believes in personal creativity, self-empowerment and the power of flowers. We know that each floral stem is a smile sent from heaven and has healing vibes meant to be shared.
Firmly rooted in the Chester County community, Steele Orchid enjoys spreading a little sunshine to those in need. If you are aware of someone in need of a little sunshine, please contact us.

L. Sherrerd Steele – Floral Design Engineer; Sassy Creative Visionary
Steele Orchid is the creative brainchild of Sherrerd Steele and was established in 2019. By day this entrepreneurial wonder woman leads a firm that has emerged as a leader in the environmental assessment industry. Sherrerd earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology and a Master of Science in Engineering Geology (a few moons ago). In addition to her day job, Sherrerd’s connection to the earth and passion project for 20+ years has been designing unique floral arrangements that are bold, sassy and creative — we like to say she puts the “WOW” in flowers. Her unorthodox arrangements typically feature flowers with minimal greens, a stunning departure from arrangements procured from the mass-market floral shops. Sherrerd’s design approach is to mix color, texture and natural elements that allow the beauty and form of the flowers to move forward in a bold and creative ways creating the “WOW”. As much as possible, Sherrerd uses locally sourced flowers, oftentimes from her backyard garden! Sherrerd actively seeks out local farms and sources to give Steele Orchid that unique advantage. When it comes to flower arranging, her motto is “more is more” — meaning the more flowers used, the better, and the bigger the arrangement, delivering the better experience. It’s likely that Sherrerd’s talent has been deep inside her since birth as her mother, the late Lucie B. Steele, was a multi-year, top award-winning flower designer at the Philadelphia Flower Show — the largest indoor flower show in the world. We can’t wait to see what Sherrerd will create next!
