Hello! I'm Kelly and you can call me a flower addict, nature lover, and travel bug. I am married to my high school sweetheart, who is also my biggest supporter. You can find us sipping away our coffee at any little shop in DC on the weekend or maybe a new city across the globe. My love for florals started when I was a little girl helping my grandma tend to her small garden in our backyard. I would scramble to find flowers and make flower crowns for her and myself. Silly little me would set up a "floral shop" using the couch's cushions to sell "flowers" that I picked from the garden to all of my aunts and uncles. It wasn't until I was older that I realized flowers have always  been my passion. Every arrangement that I make, I strive for it to be different and unique. My goal is to make sure whomever is receiving my creative piece, can feel the love, care and excitement that went into it. I want to be able to turn every client's inspirations and dreams into a beautiful reality. 

Behind the creative design

Lavender&willow was named after my favorite color and favorite memory. It stems from one of the best days of my life and the start of my floral journey. In spring of 2016, my then boyfriend, proposed to me under a willow tree covered with hanging lavender lanterns. 'Til this day, I can still feel my heart skip a beat thinking about the moment that he got down on one knee. After the proposal, I started looking into floral arrangements in preparation for our engagement photo session. The more I looked, the more I wanted to get my hands on them as soon as possible. Once I got my hands on those beautiful blooms, I have not stopped dreaming about them since! 

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart
