“Listening to a vision and bringing it to life is my goal.”
I approach each wedding, event, or individual arrangement as a unique piece of art. Each bloom used is unique, creating stunning views from all angles. I understand the importance of textures and the finer details in my creations, when designing anything from soft classics to more organic styles.
With my masters in floral design, the classes I took through the years, and my love for gardening, it could be said that flowers have been in my blood for over 40 years.
A Little About Me
I grew up in Hudson, NH. In high school I met my future husband, Timothy, it was love at first sight and he changed my heart. I went from attending the Naval Academy to going to Rittner’s School of Floral Design in Boston, MA.
While attending classes at Rittner’s, I also worked at and learned the ropes of a flower shop and greenhouse when I came home on the weekends. Following graduation, I took a full time position and my life as a florist began. For several years I worked in a few different shops taking everything in, absorbing all I could.
I married Tim, my high school sweetheart in 1980 and in 1984 we opened our 3000 square foot family owned and operated flower shop in Hudson that we owned for 32 years. Our son, Ben, was born in 1988 and grew up working in the shop. Looking back now, it was a lot fun as well as a huge challenge balancing everything. Tim has a tree business, yes, two small seasonal businesses in one family. Yes, we are crazy but, if I need anything “wood” he can get it!
Our Dream Come True
In 2015 we made the change of our life… We sold the flower shop in Hudson, sold our house, and we started the process of our “Dream.” We started building our new home with my new state-of-the-art Studio in Greenland, NH in 2016. Tim’s grandparents left us this most beautiful piece of land on Tide Mill Road where we would go for walks when we were dating. We owned this piece of land for years, but it was now time for this change.
My studio is a state-of-the-art, modern designed workspace, with a private entrance for clients and a full walk-in cooler that holds up to three moderate sized events at once. (The house was designed with the studio in mind). The studio is a quiet and relaxing space where I invite clients to talk with me about their visions for their event. I often have flowers available to aid in decision making, as well as digital albums of the many events I have designed. My goal is for each of my clients to feel like they are my only customer and to exceed their expectations on their special day.
