About Erin Loganbill, Owner/Designer

I have always felt most energized and at peace outdoors. Growing up, my sister and I learned about flowers from parents and grandparents in town and on the farm. The seasons brought a succession of native and cultivated flowers and fruits, and our mother introduced us to them all. A visit to our great-grandmother, past 90, at her home in a small Kansas town, helped me recognize the lifelong gift of the gardener. When we arrived, she was tending her seedlings. At the end of our stay, as we drove away, I saw her return to her plot of earth.  

My creative space, our 1910 bungalow, is situated within the original boundaries of historic Old Town, Lenexa, Kansas.

About Erin 

From earliest childhood, my sister and I spent every possible moment outdoors. Each season brought a fresh succession of native and cultivated flowers and fruits, and our mother introduced us to them all.  We brought outdoor treasures inside: flowers, cones, berries, evergreens. I grew up believing everyone roamed meadows and forests, and worked in the garden. 

My floral work is self-taught, the creative outcome of a lifetime of learning in the garden, a love of art, and an intuitive sense of form, color and pattern. So many people live apart from nature, and it has always brought me joy to share arrangements from my gardens. Recipients have been curious about the local materials, so different from what they find at a conventional florist shop or supermarket. In time, I became known in many circles for my work and was first asked to do the florals for a wedding in 2011.

Travels in Europe and to the east and west coasts of the U.S. have influenced my plantings - I grow flowers that I love, some specifically for arrangements. I work very closely with my sister, Kirsten, who raises a great variety of plants in her gardens in Lawrence, Kansas. Read more on her website: bluemorningglory.com. We work together on many events, and would love to bring a bit of wonder to yours.
