Washington, DC

Ed. Note: From the Lemon Collective’s Holley Simmons.  From Holley:

She Loves Me is a flower and gift shop that caters to those who appreciate beauty and want to learn more about the world around them. We’ll have a daily selection of fresh-cut flowers, available by the stem and in pre-made bouquets, as well as plants. Upstairs we’ll have classes of all sorts, including flower arranging, terrariums, flower crowns and more.

We have a selection of botanical-based products, including candles and skincare. We also serve as a gallery space for local artists, and with the exception of their one-of-a-kind artworks no product in the shop is over $150.

We’ll also do weddings, special events, and classes on-site.
A little bit more about my background:

I began teaching terrarium classes on my dining room table five years ago while simultaneously working as a food reporter for The Washington Post Express.

Once classes started getting larger and larger (and my roommate was growing tired of all the dirt) I left the Post and co-founded a shared makers’ space in DC called The Lemon Collective (www.wearethelemoncollective.com) where I taught plant classes and invited other area makers to share their skills.

Since teaching and selling terrariums, I’ve also began to offer floral design services. She Loves Me will serve as the base for my flower work and be a retail shop where I can share my passion with everyone else.
