Your name: Kristin Thompson
Your Business name: Don’t have an established business yet
Your Location: Washington, DC
How did you start your business?
I haven’t started a business yet but I have been trying to learn as much about flowers as I can to eventually find my way into the field.
What is your design aesthetic?
I love learning about all different styles of design, I think though the one that comes most naturally to me are simple bouquets and arrangements that let the flowers do talking!
What inspires you?
What doesn’t?? There are so many amazing sources of inspiration packed in our everyday lives and in the nature that surrounds us. In terms of a person who inspires me though – my Mom. She’s always created stunning floral arrangements and wreaths at home, she’s truly an artist at heart!
What are the trends, flowers & colors that are unique to your region?
DC brides seem to love traditional flowers, peonies, roses, Calla lilies etc. but I will let the real DC expert, Holly, speak to this question!
Are you a retail shop, studio/warehouse or home based?
Do you offer any services in addition to floral designs?
My current full time job is in Public Relations which I also really enjoy, but I have yet to find a way to combine the two interests
What does your toolbox look like?
Small, I am just learning so my toolbox really is a haphazard collection of things I’ve learned how to use. I am looking forward to shopping at Jamali Garden with the group to pick up some new essentials!
What tool in your toolbox can’t you live without?
Wire…and I can’t ever seem to stop finding vases and containers I love
What’s your favorite flower?
David Austin Garden Rose
