Shore is known for her lush, garden-style designs that feature high stem counts and tons of texture. Her clients appreciate her use of unique flower and foliage varieties, always paired with creative color play.

Shore’s connections to the Field to Vase Dinner Tour and Certified American Grown run deep. She’s long committed to designing with homegrown flowers 365 days a year and helping other designers do the same.

And she was the featured floral designer for the Field to Vase Dinner at Scenic Place Peonies in Homer, Alaska in 2017.

“It’s an incredible honor to be chosen to design for this dinner. The Certified American Grown family is a huge part of my life and designing with American Grown Flowers 365 days a year is a staple in my business,” Shore says.

At Bloomia USA, Shore is planning high-style, out-of-the box designs that incorporate peonies, tulips and greenery for lots of softness and movement. The greenhouse location allows her to push the limits on scale and form, creating arrangements that are both event decor and art installations.

Shore’s work has been featured in national and local magazines and blogs such as Martha Stewart Weddings, Florists’ Review, Washingtonian Bride and Groom, Style Me Pretty, Weddings Unveiled, Cottage Hill, Ruffled, Once Wed and United with Love among many others.
