I love everything about my “job”. Creating floral arrangements for weddings, parties, and home decor is what I do all day, every day and I’m always thinking about new projects and fun ways to use flowers.


With all of the beautiful greenery, florals, berries, fillers, etc., no two projects are ever the same. Each arrangement has it’s own characteristics and personality.


I enjoy getting to know each of my customers, and making items that work with their color schemes, styles, and ideas.


Silk flowers are such a great option for brides – who wouldn’t want to keep their bouquet forever? I try to make sure the flower part of the wedding planning is as fun, exciting, and stress free as possible!


I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to do my dream job every day.
