Where does time go when you're running a business? Some elusive place, never to be discovered again is my theory! 

I'd like to take a moment before more days pass in January 2020, to thank all my clients and fellow vendors that have entrusted me and this little company I call Fleurie, (fleur+Laurie) for their most special occasions.  It's a trust that is not taken lightly- flower filled events and the giving of flowers is very personal, and I treat it that way in what and how I design and create

I truly enjoy creating all things flowery, the thoughtfully crafted designs come from my heart. I feel like I’ve been given a gift for working with flowers in almost any form- a gift that I am so grateful for, and delighted to share

Growing plants and working with flowers is second nature to me, truly a lifelong passion. Talking and interacting about budgets and contracts though, is not a thing that comes naturally for an introverted flower girl, even after so many years of it!

2019 has been eventful- I had knee replacement surgery mid- summer, and took several months off to heal.  It was a time to redefine how I wanted to proceed in business and life. I scaled back on larger events and focused on more personal, intimate weddings, elopements and events using the seasonal flowers I am growing, and buying as local as possible for everything else.

I’m growing even more carefully selected flowers than ever in my tiny urban garden- ranunculus, anemones, tulips, Dutch iris, sweet peas, and other goodies to start the year off (hint: hello early spring events!)

I’m always working to become greener in my life and I’ve always taken steps to be ecologically sensitive, and that will continue on with responsibly-grown flowers, growing flowers for bees and pollinators, and providing a healthy place for birds to stop and drink and find a snack
Bachelors Buttons are a pollinator and bird favorite!

 I want to say, THANK YOU all for helping me grow this year and in past years, and for ‘growing’ along with me in the future!

April 2020 will be a milestone for me, celebrating 10 years officially in business!

Wishing you personal growth, health and happiness, and a Happy and Prosperous New Decade!
