Yellow Orchid Co. is an event planning and floral design company. We pride ourselves in being a small business with a big heart. For us, it’s the quiet details that make a loud impact. We’ll go the extra mile to make sure that all aspects of your event are covered. We hope to meet you soon! #wellhelloyellow


Meet the owner

Ruth Chodniewicz founded Yellow Orchid Co. after more than 20 years planning conferences, events, and concerts in the corporate and nonprofit sectors. She also has experience organizing weddings and parties as a private consultant. After graduating from Rutgers University (Go Scarlet Knights!), she continued her studies in Austin, Texas, where she became a certified floral designer. She has designed flowers for weddings, funerals, corporate events, and personal celebrations. 

Ruth resides in beautiful Chester, New Jersey, the same town where she was born and raised. She's often seen walking around town with Togo, our CPO (Chief Puppy Officer)! She is most fulfilled being Mom to two incredible children, adopted with love from South America.

Passion for our craft

At Yellow Orchid Co., we love dreaming up an experience and bringing every detail to life! We think outside the box to add elements of surprise and wonder to events. Big fans of checklists and spreadsheets, we keep projects on time, on task, and on budget. (Yes, the boring stuff matters!)

We have a unique style, both in events and floral design. We value earning the trust of our clients and the freedom to create and inspire.

Ruth and her team enjoy meeting new people and hearing their stories. After all, we tell their stories by creating memorable experiences that reflect them. We strive to serve our community with warmth, professionalism, and kindness.
