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 every day. I would scramble to find flowers and make flower crowns for her and me. My silly self would set up a "floral shop" using the couch's cushions to sell "flowers" that I picked from the garden to all 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 work, can feel that I personally created the arrangement with nothing but love and care. I want to bring excitement and joy to as many people as I can and hope to spread the positivity and kindness in this world.

Behind the business:

Lavender&willow was named after one of the best days of my life and the start of my floral journey. In spring of 2016, my then fiance, proposed to me under a willow tree covered with 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!
