Hi. My name is Ann MacMullan. I am a freelance floral designer and gardener currently getting my certificate in Floral Design at Longwood Gardens. I create custom floral designs for the home and for special events, using eco-friendly materials and methods when possible, and am in the stages of planning my home garden. Check out my Floral Portfolio to see more of my designs. I can create everything from centerpieces to bouquets and floral head wreaths!
I studied ornamental horticulture and worked as a TV Garden Producer for Martha Stewart for a decade or so; then I continued my journey in TV production, producing various shows including Animal Planet’s Dogs 101. Now I’m back in the world of horticulture and learning as much floral design (and photography) as I possibly can. This blog is my virtual notebook to help me remember what I’m learning as I go, and document special moments. I care about the planet, so I would like to find ways to be as “green” as possible for floral design. See my page explaining Eco-Friendly floral design.
Working with plants fulfills me in a balanced way: by using my head, heart and hands. And taking pictures is a natural extension of my storytelling habit, giving me a chance -To see a World in a Grain of Sand, And a Heaven in a Wild Flower…
Someday I will win the lottery and go to the Dutch Floral school – Boerma Instituut!!
