A New Beginning and a Bittersweet Ending

My new beginning is coupled with a bittersweet ending. I am bursting with excitement as well as a strong sense of inner contentment as I make this announcement. 

 Following my heart and honoring my creative spirit led to the creation of Amy Lynne Originals and the Winston-Salem Flower School.  It has been an amazing ride!  For thirteen years I have had the privilege to design for many events.  For the past 3 years I have enjoyed teaching floral design. 

 My heart is now pulling me in a new direction that satisfies a passion sparked when I was young.  I have always held a love and fascination with horticulture.  I followed that passion and earned a BS in Horticulture from the University of Kentucky.  While my love of floral design outweighed my love of horticulture for years…the scales have now tipped!

 My family has acquired a piece of property in Stokes County.  With that acquisition came the realization it is time to move from a floral design operation to a growing operation.  I can’t wait to share more about this new endeavor as plans unfold!

Our land is located on the Dan River and is where our family and friends have enjoyed camping for many years. It is a place that holds special memories filled with joy and love. I can’t imagine a more perfect place to live and begin my new business endeavor.

 With all this being said, Amy Lynne Originals and the Winston-Salem Flower School will close on December 15, 2018.  While some may see this as an ending, I see it as a new beginning.  I am a flower junkie…floral design will forever remain a part of my life, just in new and different ways.  Stay tuned for information about our cut flower growing business as well as a book I will soon release regarding my floral design journey.

Please rest assured that if you have an event booked with us between now and 12/15/18, we are prepared to fill the order with the same beautiful designs and amazing service.  If you have any concerns, do not hesitate to call our studio 336-997-9443.  

  On another note, if there is someone out there that has imagined owning a floral design business, please reach out (336-997-9443).  While I am not sure the fate of my building or inventory, I would be delighted if it remained a floral design studio owned by a flower lover that also chases dreams.  Or, if you have a different dream that fits with an adorable little building in the heart of West End -  give a call too!

I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to so many colleagues, clients and friends that have supported my business for so many years.  I am so grateful. 

 Thank you and warm wishes,

Amy Lynne
