My mom started operating her own floral and wedding planning business out of our home when I was a little girl. She does beautiful flowers, and I always told people that she was exactly the person you wanted to plan your wedding because she seems to care about client's weddings as much (and sometimes more!) than their own mothers. I grew up helping her with flowers and all things wedding, and I was lucky enough to inherit her creative genes.
I have always had good handwriting and began doing calligraphy after taking a class at a local community center in eighth grade. I eventually took it up again when friends started getting married, and found it was a unique gift to offer them. It is somewhat of a lost art that people don't always think of, but most seem to really enjoy getting a special envelope and a beautiful invitation. These creative projects are also a nice counterbalance to my day job, and I enjoyed each project so much that it eventually occurred to me that it was something I could offer to others. Because I learned all of this from helping my mom, "The Flower Lady's Daughter" seemed like an obvious name for a little business. (Thanks Mom!)
I have two main goals with this little business. First, quality craftsmanship is really important to me. I have high standards and notice things like straight lines, clean cuts, correct spelling and grammar, and well thought arrangements and alignments. I realize that many people probably don't notice things like this, but I still think it matters. Second, when I floated the idea for this business to my mom, she told me that I had to follow her customer service philosophy. I want to care as much about your project as you do.
If you are interested in calligraphy or other creative services, or just have a question about wedding etiquette, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
