Like her sister, Kit had a love of flowers from an early age thanks to the lovely flowers her mother grew every summer in the backyard. During college, Kit worked as a perennial plant specialist at a local nusery and after graduating from James Madison University with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism, Kit had the opportunity to work in The Netherlands. Kit became passionate about floral design after living among the flower-loving Dutch and after she created her own wedding flowers (with Casey’s help) for her wedding in 1997. Kit fell in love with the Los Angeles Floral District and wanted to share that passion for flowers with her friends.
After taking friends down to the mart and showing them how to create flower designs, the concept of Flower Duet took shape. By teaching people how to design flowers in their own homes in a flower party atmosphere, Flower Duet was able to grow through referrals for weddings and special event flowers.
Kit’s background is in photo journalism, so her creative eye is a plus when trying a new floral design idea. While working as an Internet marketing expert for companies like Office Depot and Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Kit honed her floral design skills taking classes and workshops around Southern California.
Lots of fun and instructors are great. They do warn the room is cold, but it’s pretty cold.
