MY STORY

About Lisa

I came up with the name and idea for this company in April 2023 after getting my heart broken. After an expensive trip to Trader Joes, I surrounded myself with flower arrangements putting one in every room of my house. It helped - both the process of arranging them and the arrangements themselves. I was cheered up! I was surrounded by beauty and felt comforted and optimistic.

I thought about how many women wait for someone else to buy them flowers and then don't even get the kind of flowers or arrangement that they like. I grew up in Japan and my arrangement style is "less is more," simple and unique, as in the traditional art of ikebana.

I'm also an elementary school teacher and I started making arrangements for teachers and parents at my school this past April. I found it to be enjoyable, calming and therapeutic. I host an after school flower club where students arrange flowers, create holiday centerpieces and have the chance to unwind after a long day.

I have recently started to plant my own flowers. It's really nice having options in my front yard that I can use in arrangements. I have received so much support from family, friends, my school and the Vienna community. I'm very grateful and hopeful that this business will be a way to spread a lot of lasting joy! I'm also hoping I can teach people tips and tricks for planting their own flowers/gardens through my Flower Power podcast. My guests and I will discuss the benefits of gardening, how gardening has been therapeutic for us and of course we'll share our favorite tips/tricks (as well as our mistakes.)
