About The New Leaf

For over 30 years The New Leaf has proudly served Hampton Roads in delivering the finest fresh cut flowers. We are steeped in rich tradition and also enjoy the challenge of stepping into the unknown. Our knowledge of protocol for religious traditions and non-sectarian occasions gives our customers confidence in knowing that we will do it right! Through our use of sustainable flowers, plants, mosses, twigs, branches rocks and shells, we design custom arrangements with gratitude and joy.

We take pride in our friendships and contacts with local vendors and professional services such as caterers, wedding & event planners, custom bakers, jewelers, faux florals, event rentals, DJ’s and bands. We delight in sharing these valuable references with our customers.

The New Leaf imports flowers from around the world and is happy to support local growers from Ivor, the Eastern Shore, the Peninsula, Virginia Beach… and our own garden.

Our Driver

Anthony

After years of government service, in the Navy and The Post Office we are lucky to have Anthony as our driver. No one knows the roads of Virginia quite like he does.  During this time of Covid, we are doing our best to have contactless deliveries.  Anthony goes the extra mile to call ahead before delivering to make sure a recipient is at home or in the office, so that flowers are delivered at their freshest and that everyone remains safe during this time.

 

The Founders

Sarah Munford

Sarah Munford

Born 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.  In her free time Sarah loves to read, travel, and play golf.

Laurel Quarberg

Laurel Quarberg

A 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 New Leaf - the unusual in floral design. In her free time Laurel enjoys fishing, boating, and travel.
