Hi there! I'm Laura Swayne, creator of Beautiful Edge Designs. I am so glad you stopped by!
I specialize in designing floral arrangements for all occasions that are lush, organic, and romantic, with a bit of whimsy. As often as possible, my arrangements are created with the bounty of our incredible local flower farmers. I am equally as enthusiastic about helping you plan and execute your celebrations, big and small. Lets start planning, and flowering!
A beautifully unique component of BE is our annual Spring pop up bakery. For several weeks each April/May, the studio is opened as a morning pastry and coffee cafe, truly like none other. Hugs and donations are accepted as payment to cover cost, but certainly not necessary. Enjoy discovering a little more about Beautiful Edge in the pages to come! I look forward to our paths crossing soon. Feel free to contact me by clicking here.
Beautiful Edge began when I was a little girl. Early on I appreciated baking, good food and the beauty of the world around me. Later, these leanings merged with an innate desire to love people well, and to serve people with a bit of Southern charm and Northwestern authenticity. The combination led me to work in the hospitality industry for many years. First, I worked in management in the restaurant world, playing in the kitchen when I had the time; and later, in many facets of camping ministry. Along the way, dreams of creating a bed and breakfast, an art studio, a coffee shop, or counseling center have ebbed and flowed.
Fast forward some years. Through a beautifully imperfect marriage with lots of twists and turns; the gift of four wonderfully imperfect children; a once-in-a-lifetime English garden tour trip; an opportunity to create floral designs for our Church table; volunteering at our local rose garden; opening our home as a pop up bakery, Beautiful Edge has emerged.
Beautiful Edge is the space where I’ve forged a deep connection between my passions for floral design, event planning and baking with loving and serving those of you who are friends, and those of you who soon will become friends. It is my desire to listen intently to you, my clients, and to curate thoughtful and original designs specific to your needs and dreams.
Each of us stands on the edge of what has been and what is to come. These moments, big or small, joyful or sorrowful, deserve to be recognized. Whether designing a bouquet “just because", helping you create the wedding of your dreams, or anything in between, I look forward to helping you celebrate the beautiful edges in your life!
