“Just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower” – Hans Christian Andersen
For me, flowers are the most simple but expressive things in life. They share in your happiness during festive times and console you in moments of sorrow. Some of my most special memories are punctuated with flowers: memories of my grandmother and I picking flowers from her garden to use on the dinner table and the frilly and fragrant lily of the valley from my bridal bouquet when I married the man of my dreams.
Flowers have always had a special place in my heart. Growing up in coastal Fairfield County, the summer was always filled with bushes and bushes of electric blue hydrangea and the kaleidoscope of colors brought to life by the tea roses in my mother’s garden. I’ve been designing and decorating with flowers from an early age, when I joined my mother and sister working at a local flower shop. Now, I share my love of flowers by including them in all kinds of life events with my own 14 year old daughter. I also enjoy sharing my knowledge of the floral industry, including decorating with and arranging flowers through teaching and speaking engagements all over New England.
