My name is Andrea, but I mostly go by Andie – a name I picked out for me by my husband, Jon, when we first started dating eons ago. Our family was complete when we adopted our two kiddos in spring 2010.
I have multiple pairs of glasses and wear contacts as well, so every time you see me, I might look a little different as I like to dress up my face.
I don’t drink coffee and I always want a cold drink. I really like tattoos and think they are a beautiful art form. I speak a little bit of Spanish. I love to watch TV and movies. Comedies, Action, Drama, Thriller – I’m there. Can I tell you a secret? I enjoy screen entertainment more than reading a book (but I still do it).
I have been to 24 countries on 5 continents. I’ll get to Africa one day! No need to get to Antarctica. Huge travel bucket list goal is to stay in an over-the-water cabana.
Dandie Andie Floral Designs is my full time job. I live and breathe flowers. I really love what I do. Contact me to say hi! And check out the party over on Instagram.
The Dandie Andie Story
Dandie Andie Floral Designs was birthed out of a long time love of weddings and flowers. My love of flowers developed when planning my own wedding and everything revolved around the flowers. Seriously, a flower themed wedding. As my own creative director, I ended up doing some of the designs myself.
The business grew organically as more and more requests were coming from friends and friends of friends wanting me to do the flowers for their special events and weddings. I then received training at Mohawk College and a diploma from the Canadian Institute of Floral Design. Dandie Andie Floral Designs officially opened for business in winter 2010. I have also trained with Holly Chapple and am a member of the Chapel Designers.
The business runs out of a home based studio in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. For that reason, Dandie Andie FloralDesigns is available by appointment only. I prefer to meet with my clients in a consultation setting, getting to know you and your event.
Dandie Andie is a small company and I like it that way. There is no retail store front and that’s great too. No customers coming in and out distracting from what really matters, our full attention, concentrating on you and your event.
It all boils down to the fact that I love flowers and making them look pretty.
