Our first studio space at SAW in Carbondale! Siberian Elm and apricot blossoms at our feet.

What a year Modern West Floral Co. and Farm has had! Tara and I launched our business in January of 2016 and it has been a thrill to experience our first year of flowers. From weddings, conferences, anniversary parties, baby showers to birthday deliveries it has been a pleasure to work with the seasons to help people celebrate their special occasions. Here is our first year in photos:
