Deborah Strand, CFD ICPF, is an award winning Floral Designer who has worked with clients across Illinois, but predominately in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago for over ten years.

She is a graduate of the American Floral Art School of Chicago and certified as an Illinois Certified Professional Florist (ICPF) practioner. Debbie is an active member of both the Cary Grove Chamber of Commerce and the McHenry County Bridal Referral Group.

Deborah believes that it is extremely important to work very closely with the Bride and Groom when designing the floral arrangements for their special day and just as importantly is conscience of the budget that the couple might be working to.

As well as her engagement with wedding functions, Deborah also works with a number of local flower shops to provide floral arrangements for corporate functions, special occasions and funerals.

Away from her professional life, Deborah volunteers at her local church as well as being actively involved with the Natures Creative Edge in Northern Michigan which organizes a Floral Art Benefit Show that raises funds to provide scholarship funding for the North Central Chapter of the American Institute of Floral Design (AFID).
