My love of the floral industry began over 15 years ago while working with my friends Debra and Dejuan Stroud of Dejuan Stroud Inc, where I was involved in every aspect of event planning and floral design. Subsequently, after gaining retail experience as well as design company co-ownership, I have been, for eight years, the delighted sole proprietress of Katydid Floral Design & Signature Events. Over the past year, another childhood wish was realized when the Katydid working flower boutique opened it’s pretty doors in Spring Lake, New Jersey.
Katydid is honored to be the personal florist of New Jersey’s most beloved celebrity. We are the highest level of platinum vendor for the Bonnet Island Estate, The Mallard Island Yacht Club, The Ashford Estate, and the Stateroom, and are thrilled to be a preferred florist for Clark’s Landing, Navesink Country Club, Laurita Winery, the Bay Head Yacht Club, the Spring Lake Golf Club, the Spring Lake Bath and Tennis Club, The Mill, the Manasquan River Golf Club, Windows on the Water, and the restaurants of Tim McLoone.
We love working in Asbury Park and are excited to announce that we are a Smithmade florist (Think Porta, Brickwall, Happiness, Pascal and Sabine!), and delighted to be a florist for the trendy new Asbury Hotel opening in May 2016.
Katydid has partnered with Metrovation, developing a unique concept for holiday decor. Look for our creations at the Grove, Grove West, Brook 35, and Brook 35 West beginning November 2016.
