Hey there, flower friends! I'm Lana, a former journalist turned flower fanatic. Although I spent more than 10 years working in TV as an author and editor, I discovered my true passion when I designed the flowers for my wedding with my hubby Mitëk.
Since 2017, I've been on a journey of floral discovery, taking classes at top schools like the NYC Flower School and the International Turcan Flower School, and achieving my CFD (Certified Floral Designer) certification from the American Institute of Floral Design. Along the way, I've had the pleasure of working with some of the most talented floral designers in New York and Philadelphia. While I was an artist in residence at the fantastic studio Villanueva Designs, I even snagged the “Best in Show” and “Florists’ Favorite” prizes at the Fleur de Ville mannequin competition in New York in 2022!
Now, in 2023, I'm excited to introduce my new floral brand, Flowers' Cuddles. We're all about creating unique and quirky arrangements that will bring a smile to your face and a warm embrace to your heart. And of course, I couldn't have done it without the love and support of my amazing husband, Mitëk!
Hi, I'm Mitëk! I'm a PhD in Computer Science with over 10 years of experience in delivering top-notch Artificial Intelligence solutions to production. I'm always on the lookout for the latest and greatest tech to tinker with, and I love nothing more than diving deep into a gnarly computational problem.
But let's talk about something more fun than algorithms and code - Flowers’ Cuddles! I had the amazing opportunity to help my talented and determined wife Lana bring her floral dreams to life, and it was an absolute blast. I'm so lucky to be part of this journey with her, and can't wait to see where Flowers’ Cuddles will take us next!
