I grew up in a small town and my first job was less then a mile away from my house at the The Family Florist.They knew my family very well, and I would take the bus there after school. There I fell in love with designing and working with house plants in warm greenhouses. I learned so much from Mrs. B. She asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up and I told her I was an artist, she said you're going to be a florist, so get used to it. When I moved away after High School, searching for a job, I found a supermarket about to open and I thought I could do some cashiering. Well they saw my florist ability on my application and asked if I would work in the floral department, with much joy, I said yes. I was put into a position to soak up lots of knowledge along with the ins and out of fast floral retail. Once back home I settled into working for Roche Bros. where I spent ten years there, opening flower departments, doing about 30 plus weddings a year and more prom and cotillion corsages then I ever though was needed in this world! But I became extremely seasoned and fast! After I had my children I realized that I really wanted to focus on just weddings and not the other day to day floral industry bull%#@$. So I quit, went home and started Wedding Design. Every wedding was exciting!! So many different styles and places, it was never boring, however it grew tight within my design space and thought I needed an offsite studio. So we leased a spot and called it Sweet Peas Flower Shop. It was a bust, drained our bank account and added so much stress to my life and my family. At the time I was working part time at David's Bridal, selling wedding dresses and hoping to connect with Brides in need of a florist. However working retail...well, it's a stinker and I hated missing family fun. During my last few years at Davids, I was connected with an old family friend and neighbor of my in-laws. Christy had started an organic farm at her family property in Wrentham. She was getting married and had questions about what flowers she could grow for her bouquet…..my mind was blown!!!! You can grow flowers in New England, for a New England wedding!?!? Within a year and a half, I had quit Davids and was working at the farm full time. There I found a vocation that I never knew I could love so much. It brought me so much joy to plant seeds, watch them grow and design a beautiful bouquet. There at the farm I soaked up as much information as I could. With all that new information I was inspired to wonder about all the possibilities. The last ten years at the farm have been very enjoyable and it has inspired me to see what I can do on my own. The farm is so large that I have a desire to go small and see what I could perfect. I am also missing weddings and learning new floristry techniques. I look forward to learning more and sharing my knowledge threw workshops and more. I'm eager to look for innovative was to design with a sustainable mindset. I want to share with everyone how wonderful flowers are.
