Frequently Asked Questions

Where did you get the Stems truck?

The Stems truck is a 1980’s Utilimaster Aeromate that was originally used for package delivery.  We found the truck for sale online near the Ozark Mountains in Missouri. Traveling to purchase the truck sight unseen, we found bad brakes (yikes!) but overall it was in amazing condition.  The truck was then shipped to Indiana and Stems Flower Truck was born!

What is the idea behind Stems?

Stems is a French-inspired flower truck selling premium flowers on the streets of Indianapolis.  Just like European flower markets, we believe that flowers should be fresh, beautiful and accessible to all!  When visiting the truck, you’ll find a unique “build-your-own” bouquet experience.  All of our flowers are arranged with care, then hand-tied in kraft paper for your enjoyment!  

What will I see when visiting the truck?

When visiting the truck, you’ll find a carefully curated supply of fresh flowers to “build-your-own” bouquet.  All flowers are priced by the stem, so customers can build a bouquet to their style and budget. Not sure which flowers to pick?  No problem! We can help as little or as much as you need! We often have bouquets made up for you to grab & go too.

Where can I find Stems?

Stems Flower Truck is completely mobile, so we don’t have a brick & mortar location.  Check out our calendar page for events and parking locations. At times, weather conditions, truck issues or scheduling changes will affect our parking plans.  Follow online @Stemsflowertruck to find us in real time & stay up-to-date on the truck’s whereabouts!

Do you take delivery orders?

Yes!  Go to our shop page to order single bouquets or sign up for a subscription.  We deliver to Downtown Indianapolis and the surrounding areas. Have a special request, custom order or an event that needs fresh flowers?  Send us a message through our contact page or email us at bonjour@stemsflowertruck.com.

Do you sell vases?

Stems will sometimes have bud vases and small arrangements for sale at the truck! Have a special vase at home you’d like to fill? Bring it to the truck and we’ll add flowers while you wait!  If you’d like to order an arrangement in a vase for delivery, send us a message through our contact page or email us at bonjour@stemsflowertruck.com.

I purchased a bouquet! Now what?

Thank you for supporting Stems Flower Truck!  Make sure to get your new blooms into fresh water as soon as possible.  If the water becomes cloudy, change it out and give the stems a fresh cut. We strive to bring you the freshest flowers on the block, so these simple steps will help them last up to 1 full week or more!  Be sure to tag us online so we can see your flowers too!

Can I have Stems flowers at my wedding?

At the moment, Stems Flower Truck is only focusing on street sales, event orders and bouquet deliveries.  Although we do not provide wedding floral design, Stems Flower Truck IS available to rent for your special day.  Send us a message through our contact page or email us at bonjour@stemsflowertruck.com to get more information!
