Vu & Daughters
"Maison de fleur," French for "house of flowers."
Established in the Minneapolis- St. Paul region, Maison de Fleur is a floral design company in Minnesota that takes its inspiration from the opulent gardens and maisons of France - where Dou grew up in. We started MDFD in the winter of 2017 after Dou’s many years as a freelance florist. What began as an Instagram page is now part of a full-time floral service! We love what we do and continue to feel blessed every day with the support of family and friends.
Our team is simple: Mom and daughters. We are a full-service company that strives to create beautiful and fresh floral arrangements for our clients. Each vision is uniquely brought to life because they are from you- the people who make this possible.
At the height of its essence, MDFD aspires to re-create the nostalgic gesture of affectionately giving and receiving flowers.
Floral Designer | Mother
"I was born in Laos and lived there for the first 11 years of my life. As a child, my grandfather always grew flowers around the house and therefore I’ve always had a love for flowers. When I was 12 years-old my family moved to France and there I met my husband. I started floral designing for family events as a hobby. When my daughters grew up sharing the same interests and dreams we decided to open our very own flower shop. February 14th, 2018 was the first day of Maison de Fleur."
A wonderful mother of eight kids, Dou is the backbone of MDFD. Specializing in funeral arrangements and large installations, her creativity and floral knowledge is boundless. Her passion and years of experience is shaping the company into what it is today and what it will become in the future.
Co-Founder | Floral Designer | Operations Director
"As a lover of fairy tales and a hopeless romantic, my style stems from the whimsical and magical characteristics of nature. I have always found the delicate and earthly looks of flowers to be so enchanting. I truly believe that fresh flowers bring an air of uniqueness and sincerity to every event.
Besides being a florist, I am an aspiring MLS, mother of a mini aussie (Luna), environmentalist, mermaid at heart, and a traveler. "
At MDFD Darly manages communications, leads the wedding floral design process, and works with clients to bring their visions to life. She has a knack for details and loves building relationships with our clients to ensure their personality shines in the floral arrangements.
Co-Founder | Floral Designer | Social Media Director
"Certain aesthetics go hand-in-hand and naturally flowers and fashion are two accompanying elements. I grew up loving clothes and styling, another interest attributed from my mom since she was also a part-time tailor. MDFD is a brand that is close to my heart. To be driven by a creative process that is so beautiful in itself is my dream fulfilled and floral artistry is a unique and exciting venture that will always help me grow."
Known for her exquisite aesthetics and eye for design, Cindy maintains MDFD's editorial and floral content across all social platforms. Her experience in fine arts and writing is also the focus of our clientele letters, blog, and artistic direction.
Our biggest supporter, Luna, loves coming along on deliveries and being there for everyone on stressful and long nights. MDFD can always count on her to enthusiastically cheer the team on all day.
