Bio
Hello! My name is Nancy Ludlum, I have been in the floral business for over 20 years. I started out learning about flowers when I took a part-time position doing sales in a friend's flower shop.

It wasn't long before I was asked to do merchandising and window displays for the store. The on-staff floral designer began to show me some of the tricks of the trade. So, my first Valentine's Day, I was thrown into the "fire" and got pretty good at making arrangements by the end of the day! By this time I was hooked!

Eventually I opened my own flower shop. Then I went on to do freelance design. I became a Research & Development Manager/Head Designer for Celebrity, Inc. in TX and worked as a Fresh Floral Designer/Sales Support for Dole Fresh Flowers in FL.
