Flowering with Friends

Filed Under:

Katie and I have been kindred spirits and floral friends ever since we worked together at a charming little flower shop in Mill Valley. Our conversations were easy and I really admired her wild unexpected style. She is a self taught floral designer and has a style like no other I’ve ever worked with. I learned a lot watching Katie and when I began working with my own clients I hired her as my lead designer. I will never forget the time she asked me “What do you think you would be doing if you weren’t working on events every day of the week?” I just giggled and replied that I would probably be tucked into a warm almond latte pouring over a book on floral design.

Or better yet, I wanted to actually attend one of those fabulous flower workshops I see floating around my instagram feed. The idea of just playing with flowers inspires me and reminds me that I love, love, love what I do and I need to make time to create for no other reason but to play.

Whenever a juicy workshop pops up… I immediately check my calendar and nope! I’m booked. So when I discovered the Studio Mondine ladies were hosting a small workshop at their studio in San Francisco (and I had a little down time) I quickly reserved a spot on their list. I’m so glad I did, it was such a wonderful experience! They were meticulously organized and the flower selection was pristine. I loved their creative process and design ideology and I honestly learned a lot during the workshop.

Connecting with other creatives and flower enthusiasts was such a joy and I loved their curiosity about working in the industry. But most of all I loved being a wallflower quietly observing them carefully working through their new techniques immersed in the playful flowering world of Studio Mondine.
