I worked at a florist all through high school and into college. As my siblings and friends began getting married I helped with their weddings and did their flowers. I realized, I didn’t want to stop! So I started my own floral design company; Kathryn Church Designs. (I really thought I would come up with an incredibly unique sounding name, but I was too busy designing flowers and this is what got stuck on all the official forms!)
I worked at a florist shop for five years before launching my own and have received my advanced certification from the Portland Floral Design Institute. I am a stay at home mom and, for now, my shop is located in our basement.
That’s my husband, Mike, with our darling little girl, Ida Mae. He’s the one I go to for all my business questions and the brains behind any kind of project that involves building. And that’s me with our son, Asa. If I hand him a pair of clippers, he goes to work pulling stems out of the garbage can, recutting and “arranging,” with the occasional, “you like Momma?!” Definitely my cheerful helper. My kiddos are my absolute joy and you’ll see parties and things pop up for them from time to time on the blog. I can’t help myself, they’re too cute!
Please feel free to email me with any questions you’ve got! I love to help personalize events. It makes me extremely excited when someone goes the extra mile to think about table numbers, the getaway car or even a stir stick. And if you don’t want to, I’ll focus on it for you!
I’m in the process of getting everything finished on the new website so some things might be a little wacky.
Take a look around (make sure and check out the links for great ideas), leave a comment, or shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Again, thanks for stopping by!
