Debi Brickell – Owner/Designer – I have always had some sort of creative outlet, from hand-thrown pottery and ceramics, to painting, to scrapbooking, and of course, arranging flowers. I have always had a need to express myself through art. Through the years, my love of working with flowers grew, until I realized that this was definitely my media of choice. There are unlimited possibilities of what you can do with flowers and foliage…so much fun and absolutely beautiful!
Ralph Waldo Emerson once said “The Earth laughs in flowers”. I love that! Think about it…don’t flowers always make people happy? They totally lighten a person’s mood, just by being there. Think about how you feel when you see flowers blooming…regardless if they have been planted neatly in a garden, flourishing wildly in an open field, or struggling on a rocky pathway…they’re always a welcome sight. In fact, the sight of FIRST BLOOM in spring can chase away the blues and energize the soul after a long winter. It’s with a nod to that rejuvenating FIRST BLOOM that I’ve named my business. Just like the FIRST BLOOM of spring, it’s the start of something new that will flourish with time. As a floral designer, I know I have the best job ever. I enjoy it; it makes me happy. How many people can genuinely say they love their job? And how’s this for an added bonus…I know that every time I design something new, it’s going to make someone else happy. It doesn’t get any better than that!!!
So for me…It’s All About the Flowers!
