From Blossoms was founded by Kat Claar, a flower farmer, floral designer and student of natural history.
At a young age I was enchanted with the world of salamanders and crayfish in our creek. As an adult I was fascinated by birds, moths, and caterpillars. My introduction to flowers came later without fanfare, intuitively down the line of nature’s most beloved forms of color and texture. Floral design allows me to continue my study of the natural world, while creating artful work to experience and share with others.
During a summer in college, she orchestrated a summer-long project of gardening, homesteading, and community involvement at her parent’s farmhouse in Blair County accompanied by 9 of her friends. This dreamy summer introduced her to the possibility of sustainable, creative living and of setting big goals and achieving them. Upon graduating she spent a season managing an organic vegetable farm & 100-member CSA in Glen Rock, Pennsylvania and familiarizing herself with the CSA model of farming.
In 2010, Kat moved to Philadelphia and eventually discovered her passion for growing and designing. For three years, she grew cut flowers and eventually managed Laughing Lady Flower Farm in Doylestown, PA. She has freelanced for various floral design studios in and around Philadelphia including Falls Flowers, Terrain, Chicory, and Wild Stems. Kat strives to transform her love of flowers, nature, and design into a life-long pursuit of learning, sharing and creating.
