Kelle Hardy and Company
Starting from an early age (17!), I have been working in the floral world in one way or another. Like a bunch of us out here, I never really thought I would make a career of “playing” with flowers. My first job in the industry was a with a well-established, retail florist where I was provided a solid foundation of basics and business training.
So off to college I went, earning a degree in Business and International Studies and the corporate world was my oyster. I learned a ton, traveled some, and decided the office life was not for me.
Back to the wedding world I went, and started my own business creating for brides in the 1990’s. Three kids later, I sold the business and got down to the hard work of full time mothering.
Now I am back, with the same small people now grown and helping me run my creative business. But so much has changed! So many suppliers and products to choose from, and so many of my friends in the industry trying to make heads or tails of social media, Pinterest dreams (it used to be Martha Stewart Wedding dreams!) and DIY.
Too many flowers.
Said no one ever.
