Create beautiful boutonnieres with Erin Bauer of Fern Croft Floral, specializing in unique, earthy designs!

“Erin Bauer spent her childhood summers cultivating her mother’s wild and unkempt garden. These years, spent planting and learning about flowers, she developed a deep respect and passion towards nature. Erin had aspired to become a fine artist and after graduating from the Art Institute of Boston, she moved back to her hometown of Buffalo, New York. Within a few years, she bought a small home in the agricultural area of Eden and began constructing her own garden. She spent hours planning and working to help balance the disconnection she was feeling from her time spent working as a graphic designer. In a moment of reflection and self-discovery, she took a leap of faith and decided her time would be better spent working in the botanic arts.”
