If flower magicians do exsist, they work here...
And I got the job! I shortly quit my corporate grind for a life of freelance flowering. And in November 2018 officially launched Wander + Whimsy Floral and Event Styling. Since then I have created a team of artists who are just as passionate and enthralled by floral design as the day I left that NYC conference.
so after months of obsessing I finally applied to my first floral internship...
Hi, I am Haylie Ahart, Owner + Creative Director, and when I say my "dizziest dream" that's no exaggeration, Wander + Whimsy is my dream. I first fell in love with florals while working in NYC as an event rentals rep. I was introduced to the world of floral design through a conference put on by my top client at the time, you guessed it, a floral designer. That conference changed everything... I was in awe of the designers there; the artistry these designers possessed, the intention behind their work, the connection to their clients, it was something I had never seen in my other hospitality jobs...I was HOOKED. After that conference, I obsessively soaked up every bit of free content pertaining to flowers the internet had to offer. I made a secret promise to myself that one day, ONE DAY, I would learn how to do that too.
hate in any form,
decaf coffee, a life without flowers.
Love above all, community, creativity, balance, service, iced dirty chais.
