Hello! I am Lauren and I operate HONOR. My whole world has been all things plants and flowers for the past 14 years. My love and extensive knowledge of the floral industry has given me a reputation amongst clients and peers for making truly beautiful arrangements. For that, I am so grateful. I was fortunate to have had an insanely talented mentor who taught me that properly washing out display buckets, how to design a Valentine's Day arrangement inside a pair of $900 Roberto Botticelli designer boots and authentically engaging with clients are all equally important. I am inspired by what I enjoy and makes me happy: travel, good friends, architecture, textiles, fashion, original artwork, food....it tremendously shapes my approach and philosophy towards flowers and floral design. Which is this: always handpick the healthiest stems, keep the selection and color palette simple and be deliberate and purposeful in your placement. And if you need to be bold, do it. A true visionary does not follow trends.....they start their own.
After starting my career at renowned Camelback Flowershop in Phoenix and continuing my journey with beloved Sammy's Flowers here in Portland, it was time for me to forge a new path of my own. I know designing flowers is what I was meant to do. No matter how early I have to go to the flower market in the morning or how long I stand on my feet designing or how many times I get floral glue caked on my fingers....it simply doesn't matter. I love it.
