let's get to know each other
With the launch of my new website, I wanted to share a little more about myself with my clients and customers. I had a friend craft some fun interview questions for me to answer so I could add a little more dimension to myself then just a face and a name. At Paisley, I want to be a friend to each and every one of you. Whether it's a quick phone call to get an order out to a loved one or you're coming to my in-home office for a bridal consultation, I want the experience to be personal and comfortable. So here are five things you probably didn't know about myself, Marie St. Onge of Paisley Floral Design Studio -- question and answer style!
Do you have a favorite flower?
It's so hard to choose just one.....but some of my favorites are Cymbidium orchids, parrot tulips, free spirit roses, to name a few!
Did you have flowers at your wedding? What were they?
*Laughs* Yes, I did! Carnations, mini carnations, babies breath, a few roses, and some leather leaf....but to be honest, at the time I loved carnations!
If you could hop a jet anywhere in the world tomorrow, where would you go? Who would you bring?
I've been talking a lot of Iceland....even thought I really don't like the cold. But I would love to stay in one of those glass domed cabins and see the Northern lights! Of course, I would bring my husband Tim!
What’s your favorite jam to bust out arrangements to?
I guess the happy go lucky girl has a dark side sometimes because I love grunge music! Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, Metallica, Godsmack....are all my favorites to work to! But I also love disco! It just isn't on my antiquated radio system in the studio! I was lucky enough to see Pearl Jam last summer after a busy wedding delivery weekend!
Where do you see yourself in ten years?
My husband Tim and I have talked about building our "retirement home"....with my perfect, in-home-studio! Hard to believe we are in the beginning stages of planning for that season of our lives! My plan is to continue to design, maybe scale back the amount of work that I currently am doing, that way I am able to enjoy the beginning of retirement!
So now you know a little more about me! I look forward to getting to know a little more about you, the flowers you have in mind and the best arrangements to help express whatever those flowers need to say.
