Just Beginnings Flowers – does great community work!

Flowers are such a terrific accessory to make any home more beautiful whether you are staging it for selling, or decorating for living.

I wanted to let you know about a floral store and school that I just discovered in Surrey BC. With the guidance of a community leader, June Strandberg and her daughter Casey, Just Beginnings Flowers is helping ‘women with barriers’ get back into the workplace by teaching them the craft of flower arranging. They along with Margita’s Flowers in North Vancouver they are the Official florist of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Vancouver. That’s quite an accomplishment. The students will be making the bouquets and I’m sure feel very proud.

Just Beginnings Flowers is located in Surrey behind the Surrey Memorial Hospital. Check them out at www.justbeginningsflowers.com. Phone: 604 582 8298

We held our local monthly PRES members only meeting at Just Beginnings Flowers and June taught us some simple arrangements using artificial and real flowers. Love the idea of women supporting women!

Proud owner of PRES Staging® and expert home stager. I naturally started drawing interiors when I was very young. I see finished projects completed in my minds-eye as the client explains to me how they would love to see their space created. I then can draw sketches quickly to produce this vision right then and there with the client. My creative talents led me to full time work as a career counsellor working with people, designing workshops, facilitating groups when the economy did not support the luxury of home improvements. My many talents in this field was a happy marriage to own PRES the Professional Real Estate Staging Centre. Helping others start and run their own home décor businesses for redesign and staging, learning design principals and building confidence brings me great joy and passion. Working with people and helping them make confident decisions comes easy to me.
