My Story

"Where flowers blooms, so does hope" - Lady Bird Johnson

I started Looking Glass Flowers because I believe in sustainability; about making sure the product you receive is not only beautiful, but environmentally & socially responsible as well.

All my life I've been drawn to flowers and nature.  I remember as a child playing hide and seek in the fragrant orange groves near my home & laying under shady canopies of jasmine vines in our backyard to escape the sweltering Summer heat.  My mother, with her artistic eye, had created the most wonderful rose garden which was a rainbow of colors that produced the most heavenly scent.  I credit her with passing that passion for flowers onto me as she had such an incredibly creative spirit and always made sure to encourage that part in me as well.  

My appreciation of nature comes from my father, who would always take my sister, brother and I out on camping trips and nature hikes, explaining about the trees, plants and birds in the forests.  He was able to tell it like a story that made it fun for a child to learn and many of those stories I still remember to this day. 

Being able to create beautiful, nature inspired arrangements that bring such joy and happiness to people, being even a small part of the special moments in their lives is a rare honor and the most rewarding part for me.   

I started Looking Glass Flowers because of my lifetime love of flowers, and I have chosen to be a sustainable florist because of my appreciation and respect for nature & its need for preservation.
