My passion for floral design started at my very first job in high school. I was lucky enough to only have to walk across the street (which saved a lot on gas) to a local flower shop where it all began. It seems it must have been fate because in that same building I learned I had been blessed with the creativity to design, met my husband, and became the owner of my own business. Over the years my creativity has expanded to include interior design as well as floral design. After having a storefront business for several years I have decided the best way to do my type of business is by phone. Now-a-days the majority of floral sales are over the phone and internet. Doing away with the retail aspect of my floral business will allow me to spend more time on my designs and pleasing my customers. I will be running a home based business where I can be reached weekdays from 8:00 a.m.- 6:00 p.m. and weekends by appointment or for funeral orders.
I have been a floral designer for 30 years and have been doing interior design for about 15 years. I like to make my designs more unique than the average florist by using different types of flowers and textures. I love weddings! I like to think weddings are one of my specialties, they allow me to release my creativity and show off my designing skills! I love the freedom different types of venues offer for florists now. My second love is decorating houses and choosing colors for homes and businesses. I absolutely love bold colors. I also have been painting and distressing furniture for the last few years. No matter what task I'm doing each day, painting, designing, or creating something new I find passion in my work. I hope to share this passion with you! So whatever your design needs I hope you will chose Amanda Clayton Designs.
