My first introduction to working with flowers was at the age of 11 when I lived on the island of Kauai. I had signed up for a lei-making workshop at the local community center and over the course of that workshop I learned to make both leis and Hawaiian flower crowns, also known as ‘hakus’. I absolutely loved using flowers to make beautiful things – it was so much fun! And I was especially delighted because I was pretty darn good at it. I had drunk the floral design kool-aid and was hooked.

When one of my former Colorado brides, Stephanie, who had moved to the Seattle area shortly after her wedding, reached out and asked if I wanted to be involved in a DIY flower crown event at the downtown Seattle mall she worked at, Pacific Place, I jumped at the opportunity. My involvement would not be to make flower crowns for all the attendees, but to teach them how to make their own flower crown. I was to provide the flowers, the tools, and the flower crown instructions for their Pop-Up Spring: Fashion & Beauty Event. I was excited to switch things up and take on the role of floral teacher.

Pacific Place mall is currently going through some renovations to make the common, central areas brighter, more open, and modern. Stephanie and her marketing team have been kicking off this facelift endeavor with interactive, fun events to spread awareness of the renovation and to tap into the energy and excitement of building’s transformation. As it was Mother’s Day weekend, Stephanie thought it would be fitting to incorporate flowers and decided on DYI flower crowns, which couldn’t have been more wonderful. The Pop-Up Spring Event had than fifty lovely participants, who all took to flower crown making just splendidly. It was neat to see how every person made a totally different, unique flower crown. I was one a proud teacher!

Hello and welcome! Thanks so much for taking time to stop by my part of the internet. I have been working with flowers for a long time and I just love helping people make their celebrations absolutely stunning. It is an honor and a priviledge to be a part of weddings and other special events.

In addition to floral design my other loves are yoga, coffee, the outdoors, and my husband and all the amazing people in my life.
