My love for flower arranging was sparked at the age of 10 when I entered a dried flower and pheasant wreath into the Wasatch County Fair. Every year thereafter I entered the contest, and at 14 I took home my first blue ribbon. A florist in Park City, Utah took notice of my affinity for arrangements and offered me my first job.
Five Penny Floral is a labor of love, named for the woman who’s love and devotion I will forever cherish. My mother’s maiden name was Nichols, from which she received the childhood nickname of “Five Penny.”
I had always wanted to open my own flower shop and had even done a few weddings for family and friends, but it wasn’t until after my mother passed suddenly in 2008 did I decide it was time to bring my dreams to fruition.
I’m so in love with what I do. My personal driving force is joy – it’s the reason I sculpt living works of art and it inspires every design I create. Getting to know my clients, hearing their stories and learning what brings them joy allows me to build personal arrangements that reach out and touch a piece of their hearts.
