owner | creative director | floral + event designer

Hello, I’m Emily Dawson, the floral + event designer, and owner behind this East Lansing-based company. I’ve always been someone with big dreams who has the loving support of family and friends to make these dreams come true. Owning a business that showcases and designs beautiful things truly defines who I am as both a leader and a professional creative. I believe organization is the key to success, and you will always get the best results by treating an event as if it were your own, and showing the appreciation for your team they deserve.

I love a flawlessly designed event. I love when the gratitude from a client is so overwhelming it’s hard to contain. Most of all, I love flowers. As much as I love sitting and designing linen and chair combinations and digging through rental options, nothing will ever compare to the natural beauty of a fresh cut bloom. I consider myself one of the luckiest people in the world to be able to work with such stunning creations and be able to turn them into something even more remarkable.

What makes me who I am are the people and things I love. First, and foremost, my amazingly supportive husband, Tyler, without whom this business and my life would not be what it is today. Thank you and I love you. We live in East Lansing with the sweetest and sassiest daughter in the world, Caroline (7), and our three adorable kitties, Dexter, Zumaya, and Clementine.  We enjoy spending time at home and traveling as a family, spending time and being active with friends, being a dance mom, eating (not cooking), playing volleyball, reading, watching too much TV, and supporting our Spartans! Go Green! I have an incredibly close family, and my mom, especially, does so much for our family and business that I will never be able to properly show my gratitude. 

I cannot wait to work alongside you to aesthetically create whatever your heart and my brain can dream up. Cheers!
