​​​golden pear floral design 

  I'm Kathleen Farmer, owner and head designer at the Golden Pear Floral, wife, and mother.  You've heard that saying, "Love what you do and do what you love" - I'm truly blessed to be able to do just that!   

I believe that floral design is simply one form of art.  After graduating from design school I worked as a retail florist for several years to gain experience.  I soon realized that my real passion was for wedding and event design and started my floral design studio in 1999.  Since then I have designed wedding flowers for hundreds of couples.  I love all aspects of the design process; getting to know the couples, walking through venues, meeting with the bride and her mother as they choose the linens, planning the designs and then, of course, the real fun - getting my hands on the flowers!

I grow many of the blooms and foliages we use in our designs.  I also try to source as many of the blooms from local growers as possible, thankful that I live and work in the Willamette Valley where that is easy to do.

Like nature itself, good design is always changing, which is why my team and I continually take classes and workshops and educate ourselves on the newest flower varieties and design trends….. and I love making new friends through flowers!
