The Growing Years:
Marilyn and Marie started Flowers & Sense in September, 1999 in a small space in a medical center. Over the next 8 years we became known for our creative designs and unique ideas. Quickly we realized our talents were well suited for the wedding industry. We eventually out grew this location and moved to Blake St. and a full storefront business.
For the next five years we were able to provide even more to our everyday clients as well as our brides. We attended many workshops in Ontario as well as Upper New York State. In the last couple of years we realized that we wanted to do more in our industry. Education, associations, workshops and custom design were calling Marilyn. Marie also wanted to pursue some personal projects and to only work on special floral projects. We decided that an everyday storefront was stopping us from realizing these dreams so, we moved the business to a private, by appointment only studio.
Where we're going:
Marilyn is focusing on flower designs for weddings and events, as well as creating custom designs for everyday life events. She is also pursuing classes in Being Your Own Wedding Planner – Seasonal Flower Design Workshops – DIY Workshops and is working on more projects for 2013/2014.
Marilyn is also realizing a long time dream of creating a Northern Society of Florists and Event Planners. Marie still comes in and designs on the major projects; she also works with close friends in the industry on their special projects, and is pursuing her business in real estate investments.
