-Lewis Caroll

"Do you suppose she's a wildflower?"

As a young child, like many children, I picked dandelion and other "weed" bouquets for my mom. Making wishes and blowing the dandelion seeds was also a favorite pastime. I drew flowers all over everything, and since I was a kid with little talent in drawing, I became quite proud of my flowers.
I first happened on the beauty of the language of flowers in elementary school, though I didn't realize it at the time. I encountered it again in high school and I filed it away as interesting information, but as I got older, I became more and more enthralled with this romantic form of communication. When I fully delved into the language of flowers and all the beauty it conveys, I knew I had to become fluent in floriography and share it with the world.

it all began with a dandelion...

I took a class at the Floral Design Institute in Portland several years ago and I fell in love. I spent the next several years traveling with my husband, Scott, and living in several places across the country. I learned much of what I know about floral design from one of the DC Metro area's best floral designers. 
When we moved back to Oregon to start our family, I knew I wanted to own my own floral company and work with flowers for people's most special events. I went back to the Floral Design Institute and in March 2019, I became a Certified Wedding Floral Specialist! I've been working with flowers since 2012 and have over spent over 15,000 hours studying floral design, the language of flowers, and working with these gorgeous blooms. 

certification & floral background...

My progenitors came to America from Scandinavia and I feel so connected with that heritage. Even my company name is influenced by these roots: "Blomstra" means "flourish" or "bloom" in Swedish. To me, this translation not only refers to flowers, but to people as well. I believe we as humans flourish and bloom when we love and are loved in return.
My maiden name is Westerberg, which means "west of the mountain" in Swedish, and although I live east of the Cascades, my design style is heavily influenced by the Nordic countries. I'm inspired by literature and music consistently, and if you look closely you can often see elements of the last book I read or the music I'm currently listening to displayed in my designs in one way or another. I'm always inspired also by my fellow humans, nature, and love. 

my method...

One of the most important things to me as a designer is to enrich the world with my craft, not damage it. For this reason, I've adopted an eco-friendly approach to floral design. I abstain from using floral foam, opting instead for reusable materials in my mechanics. I also minimize my use of plastics and use left over flowers as compost, chicken entertainment (they love scratching around in fresh floral matter), or dry them to use at a later time. I use locally sourced flowers when possible, even growing some of my own material in my greenhouse. You can read more about why I choose to operate this way

This desire to enhance the beauty already all around us is a driving force for me. I believe all living things have a spirit, and I want to do my best to make sure that spirit gets to live up to its full potential. I reuse flowers as many times as possible before discarding them for this reason. Floral waste breaks my heart!
