I am so excited to begin working to make my dream a reality! I can’t believe this webpage has come to life. I’ve been dreaming of this day for over a year. If you don’t know me, let me give you the details. I am Revyn Ivory, a 17-year old Texas gal, and am starting my own floral business. I LOVE flowers, and I LOVE vintage items. So I decided to combine the two and work toward my dream. It has been my dream to become a florist.
My love for flowers started my freshman year when I joined the floriculture team in my FFA Chapter. I enjoyed learning about them, entering competitions, and just playing around with all the different types of flowers. I also took floral design at school and had fun making arrangements for the holidays and school events. FFA gave me my ah-ha moment! You know that moment when you realize the gifts and passion that God gave you. I found mine in flowers!
I’ll be attending Texas A&M University in the Fall of 2016 to pursue a degree in Floral Design and Event Planning. I am so happy that I got into my dream college! It’s a good thing because I put all my eggs into one basket, being an Aggie.
This past summer I took the 2-week comprehensive floral design class at the Benz School of Floral Design. My mom and I took the class and had a blast! My mom and dad gave me the class as a gift for Christmas and my birthday. Yea, it’s kind of expensive so it was a gift that counted twice. But it was totally worth it! It was so fun, and even more special since I got to share it with my mom. Here is our selfie after doing our basic halo’s.
Since I’m in high school and really involved in FFA, it’s hard for me to do a part-time job. So instead of getting hired on, I approached it as an intern. I offered them free labor to get to know the industry. So since my freshman year I’ve interned at three different florists. Here was the first halo I ever made for a wedding.
I am so excited to be chasing my dream, and making it come to life. None of it would be possible though if I didn’t have my family who is my support system. Here we are playing in the country, enjoying the simple pleasures of life.
I thought I’d start off by giving you a little insight into my journey to discovering my love for floral design. Keep coming back, leave me your email, and make sure you follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Persicope so you can keep up with me. (Cynthia, can you add my actual links here so they can click on them and follow them.) I’ll be sharing ideas on how to use flowers, vase ideas, and some behind the scenes action. I’m so glad you stopped by.
