Kelly Perry of Team Flower and Philosophy Flowers will bring her creative energy and breathtaking designs to the tablescapes at the American Grown Field to Vase Dinner in Nashville, Tennessee, on Oct. 5.
Perry, who as a sixth grader convinced classmates to create silk flower corsages for a friendship banquet and then started a cake-decorating business in seventh grade, has built an incredible following of flower-lovers throughout the floral industry and beyond.
Her passion and entrepreneurial spirit are mesmerizing.
At Team Flower, a global flower community that provides professional learning about floral design and growing flowers, Perry heads up all content development and classes.
Perry also operates Philosophy Flowers in North Carolina, a boutique floral design business that specializes in weddings.
Her work has been featured with Southern Weddings, Martha Stewart Weddings and nearly 60 other publications.
Perry is a believer in the transformative power of small exquisite moments. “Once I really started noticing the beautiful little things, like poppies blooming along the side of the road, a life shift began to happen,” she told Flower magazine.
“For me, flowers are all about celebrating the present moment. That’s why I love working with American Grown Flowers, especially ones grown close to home. Seasonality is important to me. Designing with these types of ingredients connects us to the moment, something that’s easy to breeze through in our busy world. I’m looking forward to creating for the American Grown Field to Vase Dinner in partnership with American farmers and my Team Flower friends. May it be an invitation for us all to slow down, settle in and celebrate the day, ” Perry shares.
