In short, we have a love for flowers and a fancy for the perfect decor. We hold dear the amazing life moment of I DO, the miracle of an upcoming birth, the sweet brilliance of anniversary’s, the glimmering time of prom and the celebration of life. It is our honor to become part of the family during your special occasions and to awaken your emotions with flowers that will help make that very special moment in time an ever lasting memory.
Meet The Team
Owner/Lead Creative Designer
I am the owner and lead creative designer of Southern Florals and Drapes. I hold a special place in my heart for flowers as they are my happy place. I truly LOVE what I do and feel it is my purpose in life.
I had the honor to work for Flowers by Lynn with my dear friend and mentor Mr. Nelson Lynn Teate in 2014 and was even more flattered to partner with him and become Flowers by Lynn and Julie in 2015. As we welcomed in 2016 it was a difficult decision for Lynn to retire and me to move on into my own business. We got to be a part of some beautiful weddings with amazing families and I cherish every one of them.
As I start my new venture with Southern Florals and Drapes, I am committed to bringing a unique style and design that caters seamlessly to each person and event. As a company we strive to be on top of and ahead of the latest trends and will forever continue our education to learn our craft. I am conscious of the environment and am always working for a better process to long term sustainability.
