Sarah MunfordBorn and raised in Richmond, Virginia, Sarah grew up in a family where flowers and parties were cherished and enjoyed. Sarah moved to Norfolk in 1987 and literally turned over a new leaf, thus the name of the flower shop. Together with her love of flowers and people she creates unique designs that capture the special moments in her customer’s lives. Sarah creates and oversees the beautiful floral designs that are our signature and have been for 29 years! In her free time Sarah loves to read, travel, and play golf.
Laurel QuarbergA native of Norfolk, Laurel graduated from Granby High School then received a Bachelor of Arts degree from VCU in Richmond and a Masters of Fine Arts from Old Dominion University. She joined with The New Leaf to bring the art of museum archival framing to The New Leaf. The two owners merged and created The New Leaf & Quarberg Gallery. After five years Laurel was more enthused about the floral side of the business, thus she closed the gallery to focus on the The New Leaf - the unusual in floral design. Today Laurel runs the administrative and marketing side of the flower shop. In her free time Laurel enjoys fishing, boating, and travel.

You just can’t ask for better service and customer care than at New Leaf. Every member of the staff has taken great care of my orders. The designs are beautiful, fresh, modern – yet gorgeously simple and familiar at the same time. Highly recommend!Sarah S.
The florists at New Leaf Florist in Norfolk, VA made lovely bouquets for my daughter’s wedding. They paid special attention to colors and types of lowers I requested while being very respectful of the budget. I can not thank them enough for their attentive service and their flexibility!Liz
