Dina Sanchez, the Flower Maven
My name is Dina Sanchez, and I am known to be obsessed with flowers. When I was 15 I signed up for a floral design & horticulture program through a vocational school called BOCES. Honestly, back then I did it just to get out of going to school. Little did I know that my first day of school would change my life forever! I came home from school and told my parents that I am going to own my flower shop one day.
I was a teenage florist.
When I was nineteen years old that dream came true. I opened up Birch Hill Blossoms in Locust Valley, New York. A great learning experience, but then I went on a ski trip to Colorado and realized there was life beyond New York. I sold Birch Hill Blossoms and moved out to Colorado. In 1993 I started Creative Flowers, and twenty-one years later I have worked over one thousand brides and families.
I love gardens. And my bike.
When I’m not working with flowers in the shop you can find me in my garden, biking and hiking. Even in the winter I love being outside and go skiing. When I’mm traveling, I’m always seeking out a botanical garden to explore.
