Owner & Lead Floral Designer
My favorite thing growing up was helping my beautiful Grandmother Margaret set a party table. (Even at 90, she teased that I would blow in like a hurricane and rearrange everything she had just done.) "Company" meant line-dried linens, well-worn silver, and, of course, Grandpa Bud's prize-winning flowers, orchids being his favorite. That passion is what helped me turn a love into a profession. I love my job. My blood pressure goes down and I get a sense of peace the minute I step into my studio. Even in the crazy times, phone ringing, deadlines creeping, late flowers, dead flowers…. I have never regretted my decision to jump into the "floral world."
Co-Owner of Bud Floral + Home
I've always strived to make others feel special. One way I love to do that is through thoughtful and unique gifts. When I heard that Jamie was looking to expand the Home and gift side of Bud Floral, it seemed the perfect opportunity to blend my love of specialty items, including art, home decor and artisan jewelry with Jamie's beautiful floral designs to create a customized shopping experience that is special and distinctive to the Chattanooga area. Come visit Bud Floral + Home, where we not only strive to make you feel special, but help you, in turn, find the perfect gift for a special person in your life or a unique item for your own home.
