More About  Me 

Hello I'm Katherine

I have been in the floral industry for almost 15 years. I continue to sharpen my technique and style, to push against normality and achieve something one of a kind .

I try to use as much local floral and funa as I can.    

I’m a PNW girl to the core,

Which means I love nature my list of places to hike is as long as my arm. There is a feeling here that Julie Andrews put best by singing out " the hills are alive" in sound of music ( really great wedding dress in that movie.)  I love rainy days with a warm drink and a over sized sweater. I am 30 the oldest of 5 and enjoy living in a close knit family. I have a great appreciation for tea and coffee like any other Washingtonian and am a self described food snob.

 

Having grown up

between Ballard and Camano Island. While our near-constant rain isn’t always great for my hair, it makes everything else come to life. From a young age, I developed a deep love for the gorgeous plants and flowers that flourish over the Washington landscape. There being an abundance of natural flora and fauna right in your backyard.

 

When I was 16,

my Aunt Anna gave me an outlet for my fascination with flowers by hiring me to help with her floral business. Though I started out cleaning and preparing for the weddings and corporate events, I soon began designing the arrangements for events.I loved playing with the complexities of color and texture to create a unique look for each client.

 

The anticipation

of everyone prepping for these events was exciting to me, and with every new floral arrangement, I honed my design skills and style. My passion and eye for high-quality workmanship blossomed (pun intended!) every day that I worked for Annas Flowers.

 

In 2011,

I continued on my own to create custom designs for family and friends as word of mouth gained me more and more work. In the spring of 2017, I put a name to the dream and the business I’d built and started 

The Little Things.


 

I’m thrilled to welcome you to my site, and hope I can share my love for the little, beautiful things of life with you.
