About

ALYSA DEMETRE developed a passion for events from the young age of nine when she organized a neighborhood Easter egg hunt. That was followed by a Fourth of July bike parade a few months later (she even has the clip-art flyer to prove it). Her parents owned a flower shop the first 18 years of her life and assisting with evewas her favorite thing. Since then she has interned at a university and radio station doing events, worked for an event designer in Monterey, and freelanced for some of the best floral designers out there, including Kate Holt of Flowerwild. Now residing in beautiful Sacramento, Alysa decided to once again follow her heart and passion in event design through florals. When she is not busy designing your dream event, you can find her redecorating her house, going to the gym, or jotting down ideas on her iPhone.

As a college student, GREG DEMETRE managed his father's flower stand in Carmel, California before opening his own flower shop. His shop was voted the Best of and had floral design accounts with numerous agriculture companies, restaurants, and local hospitals. Greg trained countless floral designers in the trade, including his daughter Alysa. Greg operated the shop for 18 successful years before deciding to move back to his hometown of Sacramento. New friends quickly discovered Greg's talent and requested him to do flowers for their children's weddings. Seems he couldn't quite escape the industry! He recruited Alysa to help and she decided to run with it!
