Tamara Ellen Gibson M.Ed.
Floral Designer ~ Flower Farmer ~ Forager
I love flowers, plants and nature of all kind. Working in the garden, digging in the dirt, walking in the woods collecting branches, moss, and lichen is restorative. It is a delight designing with all the beautiful things I have the privilage to grow and to forage.
Whether it simplistic or artistically elevated my tendacy is to reflect the natural element in texture, movement and composition. My true passion is taking this love and bringing happiness to others; helping their vision become a reality.
Quality, Nature, and Environment. Not only is nature the inspiration behind my designs but is also the basis of the philosophy of the way I run my business. The floral industry as a whole is not easy on the environment. Growing my own flowers using sustainable methods and foraging plant materials allows me to cut the carbon footprint that commercially grown flowers do not. It gives me the opportunity to invite the client to make choices about what they want to have grown just for their event given we are collaborating far enough in advance. I can share pictures from the day their seedlings first sprout to the day the flower is cut. I am committed to fresh, high-quality flowers.
