Owner, Julie Brugioni

The Silk Thumb prides itself on our well-established tradition of professional, customized service as well as our beautiful quality stems, trees and plant selection. Whether your needs are completing an office suite or reception lobby, restaurant or hotel décor, business gifts to a client or employee, or for your home or celebration needs, let The Silk Thumb complete the perfect natural environment without maintenance or replacement costs.

The Silk Thumb opened its doors in January of 1980. For the past 3 decades we have specialized in creating unique interior design utilizing the world’s finest artificial flowers, plants and trees for our business and residential clients.

Our flowers cannot be found at Target, Hobby Lobby or Michael’s Craft stores.  Our stems are quality and more realistic than any silk flowers you have seen at big brand retail stores.   I have been in the silk floral industry since the age of 16.  I travel to trade shows to hand select the finest and most realistic silk flowers in the world. We carry a premium product that is beautiful and does not die.  I am very proud of our established name, our clientele and continuing to offer the finest in silk floral design.
