Bobette L. Fisk's Profile

About

Hi!
I am Bobette, the creator of Wreaths by Bobette. Welcome to my world, my passion. I live and work in Malvern, PA, a borough of Chester County, which is 25 miles west of Philadelphia.

I grew up Pennsylvania, went to college in upstate NY, and then worked in NYC. I moved back to PA to marry, build a home, and to become a "step-mum" to 3 wonderful, then small, children.

My entire life has been rich with art and floral designing staring way back in my childhood. My mother was devoted to flower arranging and was a blue ribbon and silvery trophy winner in numerous national and international competitions. My father was a passionate gardener and taught me to grow flowers from tiny seedlings under grow lights in our basement. From April to November, our outside garden would be a plethora of blooms and color. As a child, I was enchanted…

Hi!
I am Bobette, the creator of Wreaths by Bobette. Welcome to my world, my passion. I live and work in Malvern, PA, a borough of Chester County, which is 25 miles west of Philadelphia.

I grew up Pennsylvania, went to college in upstate NY, and then worked in NYC. I moved back to PA to marry, build a home, and to become a "step-mum" to 3 wonderful, then small, children.

My entire life has been rich with art and floral designing staring way back in my childhood. My mother was devoted to flower arranging and was a blue ribbon and silvery trophy winner in numerous national and international competitions. My father was a passionate gardener and taught me to grow flowers from tiny seedlings under grow lights in our basement. From April to November, our outside garden would be a plethora of blooms and color. As a child, I was enchanted by the magical nature of flowers.

With this background, it is no surprise that I work with flowers. Several years ago, I started classes at the world renowned Longwood Gardens. I have taken numerous courses and seminars in horticulture and in flower arranging. Now, at Longwood Gardens, I am formally working on a multi-year program for certification in Floral Design.

In late December of 2013, I started my Etsy store as well as participatied in local festivals and craft fairs, all of which I continue to enjoy. I love the one-on-one contact with customers, both online as well as in person. Although I was approached by 2 national retailers last year, to make wreaths solely for their stores, I turned down the opportunity. I was honored to be asked but decided that the personal relationships were too important for me to give up. So, I am working longer hours to expand my product line and offer customers more variety and as well as various prices levels for my wreaths.

I am also involved with the Pennsylvania Horticulture Society and volunteer to create floral designs for our local art museums, public institutions, and private organizations. It's in my blood to arrange flowers, I love what I do!

I source product from suppliers all over the country looking for the highest quality preserved botanicals and most realistic silk botanicals. I want my arrangements to look "like-real", but last a lifetime.

Each and every piece that I make, is singular and unique. I will often spend more than 8 hours on a design. It becomes the creativity that drives the process, which results, in what I hope, is a work of art. I am simply passionate about what I do.

In all of my creations, you will see an abundance of vibrant colors, just as my father's garden used to look. I love working with my customers to create the most perfect floral design for them. Much of my work is custom work for special occasions, weddings and other milestone events.

If you have a favorite floral idea, design or color request, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would love to work with you.

Truly,

Bobette
