Trapp and company the original home of Trapp CandlesMr Trapp, a native of Russell, Kansas, is a small town boy with high class flair. The only son of a Kansas oil driller, Trapp landed his first job at the ripe age of eleven, sweeping floors at a local flower shop. He carefully studied his co-workers, and before long worked himself into a designer role, quite possibly becoming the youngest designer in sunflower state history.

Bob studied Classic Voice at Wichita State University, but upon realizing that the life of an opera star was one filled with countless late nights and endless hotel rooms, he changed directions and headed to the big city. After arriving in Kansas City, he soon began work at the historic Liesveld’s flower shop, where he worked alongside many of the cities floral greats.

Upon opening his own shop in Westport in the fall of 1969, Bob Trapp soon began attracting a clientele composed of some of the area’s most notable figures, and before long went international. From Ambassadors, to Presidents, to Princesses, he has orchestrated illustrious events for some of the world’s most distinguished individuals of the 20th century.
