My name is Mary Furby and I am the owner and lead designer here at Thistle & Moon. I am so grateful that you stopped by to learn a little more about me, my team and our love of flowers! Chances are, you’re a flower lover too — and if you aren’t one yet, stick around a little longer, we might be able to change your mind.
Our focus is in bringing beauty to every day -- whether that be through an arrangement, plants, intentional home decor OR the biggest day, your wedding!
Since our beginning in January 2020, we have seen so much love and support that has encouraged us to continue growing, including opening our retail location in Southern Pines, NC. We can’t wait to take you on our flower journey that has grown from our small town NC to all across the world! I look forward to connecting with you

The floral industry is one that celebrates natural life while simultaneously adds to its destruction. Each stem is created and dyed with harmful chemicals, wrapped in single use plastic, put on a truck or plane to travel across the country, where it is usually designed in environmentally detrimental ways. As consumers, this should worry us. As florist, this should be a sign to start making a change.
While there is no way to be 100% sustainable in the floral industry and still provide the services & florals clients as of us, there are several steps we take at Thistle & Moon to lower our contribution to these issues.
We recycle all cardboard boxes that our florals come in and any other products we can
We use rentals so that we are eliminating the eventuality of decor being thrown out
We do not use Floral Foam anytime we can. Some situations require it, but those are becoming less and less and we are constantly educating ourselves on other methods and products
We do not use chemicals or other additives to make our flowers live longer. We let them live their life the way it was intended to.
We purchase from local NC farms whenever possible, specifically with Piedmont Farms in Durham
Any brands we carry share the same values as we do on sustainability
We are dedicated to giving a percentage to sales to local, national and global environmental causes
We are in the process of researching composting options
