Where in the world did The Floaty Coconut come from?

~Welcome to The Floaty Coconut~

I'm Brandy, a child of God, wife, and mother to 3.

I was born and raised in South Florida and even though I don't reside there anymore I am still a Floridian. My family is an odd bunch! We are all Floridians: myself, my husband, and our 3 children. You don't find many of us anymore.

Being born and raised in South Florida you sometimes see a coconut float by in the ocean while either swimming or on a boat. My father was known to crack a few open from time to time.
Awww... nothing like fresh coconut!
Now you have an idea of where I got the name, The Floaty Coconut.

What makes The Floaty Coconut unique and legit? I've been a Floral Designer since the late 90's. I have many years of actual experience and I only offer custom, one-of-a-kind designs and decor. I don't mass produce any of the pieces I make. I make them myself and by hand. No two are alike unless designed to be that way. Most importantly, my designs are affordable. This is what makes the work of The Floaty Coconut stand out among the box store designs. I use quality products and skilled craftsmanship. Your home, office, or anywhere else you decide to adorn with these pieces with will be unique and not look like all the rest.

When I was much younger I wanted to be a teacher and taught at a private preschool. Whereas I loved my job, it was time for a change. I stumbled across a Floral Designer position and thought "this might be fun!" I had a Grandmother and an Aunt who both worked for Florists at one time in their lives. I can remember visiting the flower shop my Grandmother worked at (and eventually retired from) and loving the smell that hit my nose when I walked in. I walked into a Flower Shop in West Palm Beach, Fl. for my interview and that same smell hit my nose. I knew that's what I wanted to do! I have been a Floral Designer since the late 90's.

I landed that job, gained a boat load {pun intended} of knowledge and God eventually moved me to a different part of Florida. After my move I won a Floral Scholarship that gifted me a trip to Oklahoma for a few design classes. What a wonderful time!

Additionally, I had a fresh flower design that was featured at the Appleton Museum of Art during an Art Exhibit.

I eventually met my husband (oddly enough at a flower shop) and we started a family of our own little blooming babes. I am now a stay at home mom who's also their teacher. Because we are a homeschool family I was able to fulfill my passion for designing, repurposing, and floral arranging and open this online custom home decor site.

There you have it, the story behind The Floaty Coconut, in a nut shell. {yep, another pun}

Thanks for floating in and getting your feet wet. I look forward to doing business with you.
