My journey into the world of floral design began some 30 years ago when I became an Army Spouse.  I started hosting baby showers for spouses in my husband's cavalry troop while stationed in Texas.

     As we transferred from one duty station to another I became more involved in the decorating side of things - not to mention creating a new home at each destination.

     My interest in wedding florals really sparked when I hosted a bridal shower in 1997, while we were stationed in California.  I built on that experience when we were later posted to the beautiful northern Bavaria region of Germany for several years.  It was there that I learned the fine art of bouquet making and centerpiece design in the European tradition.

     Now I am excited to assist couples with the planning of their special wedding day - affordably, yet beautifully. I enjoy guiding a bride through the process after "I do." 

     My goal is to create as elegant and memorable a wedding experience as possible on any budget.  I thoroughly enjoy seeing the joy in a bride's eyes as her day begins to materialize.

I do what I do - like no one else does!
