I'm ALICIA

hello there!

I'm happiest strolling the charming streets of Old Town Alexandria or snuggled up at home with a cup of tea, bringing creative ideas to life!

Years ago, right out of high school, I began formal schooling in Floral Design. While I wasn't sure that I wanted to own my own flower shop, I learned so much about the principles and elements of design and, of course, flowers! It took dabbling in other professions and creative avenues before I would figure out how I could bless others with my love of painting, heart for hospitality, and eye for good (floral) design. 

Most days you can find me painting pretty watercolor details and helping couples plan their wedding welcome experiences. I create art and products for those who wish to gift something special and meaningful that they'll cherish for years to come! If you're looking for ways to make your wedding day extra special with art that will become an heirloom, you're in the right place!

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'.

I love arranging them to make a space look fresh and welcoming! Stock and lilacs are my favorite for their lovely scent, but fluffy peonies, hydrangeas, and garden roses always make my heart skip a beat!

 If I can surround myself with Ivy covered brick and boxwood topiaries, I'm in a happy place. Old Town Alexandria is heaven on earth for this girl!

 While FAR FROM being A MINIMALIST, I really enjoy GETTING RID OF CLUTTER AND FINDING WAYS TO SIMPLIFY LIFE. It has truly helped me focus on what matters most.

 Majoring in horticulture and working AT A greenhouse & GARDEN CENTER throughout college allowed me to appreciate how special TIME SPENT IN these structures can be.
