Pictured above around age 4 or 5 admiring her mom and dad's peony garden, Emily's love and passion for flowers started at a very young age and is owed to being inspired by both of her parents. Her mother was (and still is) a very active member in the Garden Club of America, and both her mother and father are very avid gardeners and horticulturists. The fragrant smells of gardenias, lilacs and peonies are nostalgic to Emily. One of her most treasured memories growing up was planting a hillside of daffodil bulbs in the Fall and watching them grow in the Spring. Emily would often tag along as her mother went down to the hill to harvest the different varieties of this Spring beauty and watch her magically work them into simple yet beautiful arrangements.  

Today Emily's floral design studio, Mily's Lilies, is based in Cohasset Massachusetts. She studied at the Flower School New York and is now offering her design services for events and as well as reoccurring subscription based orders for clients in the Greater Boston area. Mily's Lilies will also fulfill custom non-subscription orders but requires a 48-72 hour notice (dependent on current availability) before delivery.
