CHERYL

Floral Designer

Cheryl has been designing for 40 years, but her love of art and flowers goes back to age three! During her career she’s had the opportunity to work with some of the best designers in the world. Each year she is invited by The North Carolina Museum of Art to participate in her favorite competition: Art in Bloom. Cheryl taught floral design at the largest community college in North Carolina and has won design competitions at the state, regional, and national level. She is often asked what her favorite flower is and has a hard time deciding because she loves them all – but Cheryl says you can never go wrong with a bubble bowl full of peonies!

SAMANTHA

Flower Designer

Sam has been working in the floral industry for 15 years. She loves exploring the endless combinations that are possible with the plethora of fresh flower varieties available each season. Like snowflakes, Sam says, no two arrangements are alike – making each of her designs a unique piece of living art. Sam’s creativity extends outside of her work, too; when she’s not doing floral design, you can find her enjoying home DIY projects and other artistic crafts. Her favorite thing in life, however, is spending quality time with her daughter and family. Sam’s favorite flowering plants are alstroemeria, solidago, and ranunculus.
