Growing up in Napa Valley, floral design, gardening, creativity, lifestyle and sustainability has been an integral part of my life. Having lived in Portland since 2003 my love of horticulture and the natural world has continued to deepen and flourish along side my path as a floral designer and creative. 

I love helping people bring their visions to life - from the most simple, even facilitating DIY florals to large installations and formal arrangements - always using the best local materials available and mindfully sourcing from California and Hawaii when needed.  Excellent customer service is something I take a lot of pleasure in providing and I bring a wealth of resources and planning experience to insure your event is not only beautiful but goes off without a hitch. It is my ultimate passion to bring as many people as possible into contact with flowers, plants, the natural world and most of all each other - in gracious and intimate environments.  I believe the more we humans are held in the beauty of the natural world and each other the better life on earth will be.

Whether you are interested in full service floral and event design or custom DIY flower packages I will work with you to handle all of the details. For DIY brides and event planners I will facilitate ease and a fun filled experience for you and your flower helpers.  I can organize a bridal shower flower arranging workshop at a destination of your choice or at a local flower farm as a way for you and the people close to you to prepare for your big day and share in a memorable day. I am also available to assist with design, table scape and linens. 

I work with an unwavering commitment to local flower farmers and plants people, USA Grown Flowers, Slow Flowers and CSA Flowers. I'm big on texture, color, seasonality and a cohesive overall aesthetic based on your desire and budget. Gatherings and celebrations of all kinds are welcome.   

Kindly, 

Susan
