Flourish by kay floral studio

Flourish by Kay is a floral design & styling studio led by Kaylee Young. It is based in Portland, OR.

Kaylee herself is a Florist with a love of curating and styling. She first found floral design when she took an aptitude test in college that revealed that a career as a Florist might be a good fit for her. After discovering that, she got a job at a small flower shop in her hometown and the rest is history! She fell in love with the fast-paced style of work, the requirement to think on her feet, the creative element of pairing flowers together and arranging them in a beautiful way, and the way she got to connect with people.

After working at the flower shop for a couple of years, Kaylee then went on to train with 3 of Martha Stewart's top floral designers in the United States. She spent years working alongside and traveling the world with these industry leaders, and in 2015 she started her own Floral Design Business, Flourish by Kay. In 2018 she was chosen to teach a series of floral design workshops all across the United States with the Floral Wholesaler, Mayesh.
