FROM KATE: It all started with my father’s nursery and flower shop. All of my earliest and fondest memories revolve around the nursery and playing in the dirt by the potted plants, climbing the big hill out back, riding on the tractor and the flower shop no doubt sparked my early love and passion for flowers and plants.
As time passed and as I got older, I graduated from being the nuisance that I surely was and started pitching in, helping with planting and maintaining cultivars, pruning and propagating trees, and designing flowers for weddings and parties. What started out as being daddy’s little girl became a passion and love for floral design.
While completing both my degrees from UIUC in Horticulture, I grew restless and turned to floral design with a further desire to learn, which soon became an obsession. It has been common practice to attend conference after conference for new and fresh ideas, a number of competitions, and trying new combinations of flowers just for the fun of it.
After countless requests from friends and family to do their wedding flowers I decided starting my own business, doing something I love, might not be such a bad idea. Following my dream has led me to where I am today, now designing and servicing events and weddings up and down the west coast. I believe it has been my attention to detail, ability to relate and interpret, my passion for flowers and design, my talented staff, and hard work that has made Bold Blossoms what it is today. I love what I do and delight in meeting new clients for a new challenge.
