This was a FANTASTIC interview with the wonderfully talented Melissa White : owner, operator, designer, & lead florist at Botanika. I absolutely think the world of her – she is smart, talented, consistent, & generous. All of these things are on display during this interview.
Melissa tells us she’s known she wanted to be a florist since she was 10 years old. Her initial step into the creative world was architecture & interior design. She’s a mother of 2. She has the most unique “first client experience” that I have ever heard! She was completely open about her creative process. And gives wonderful advice to up and coming florist/entrepreneurs.
Just to show her off a bit, here are a few of the floral arrangements from Danyel’s wedding that we talked about in the interview. Photos, of course, from the talented photography team at Moments & Milestones.
For those looking for a career in design or floral, I 100% recommend watching Melissa. Reach out to her for advice. She is a giver, she’s supportive…she’d make a wonderful mentor. And she promised to come back and give color palette advise for our listeners soon! So, I hope we can make that happen in the future.
