Floral Arrangements/Expert Profile

Ask A Question


I would like to answer floral questions since I have owned my own flower shop for many years. I write a column for our local paper and answer questions people write in and ask. I can answer questions on the following things: Balloon decorating, floral silk and fresh from centerpieces to cemetery work and wedding work, along with color schemes, traditional or contemporary. Plants are one of my favorite subjects also.

Experience in the area

Many schools and workshops on design and floral business as well as American Indian weddings and designs. We offer any tribal dress or weddings or funeral burials.

I write a question and answer column for the Grand River Chronicle on the beautiful Grand O'Lake of the Cherokees. It's a weekly column where people can call or email questions about floral or plants and I answer the questions.


I was choosen to win a Scholarship through Ozark State Floral Association and have attended schooling through Teleflora design class in Oklahoma taught by many famous designers.
