Whatever the occasion I strive to create stunning, bespoke floral designs using a variety of materials and accessories that are totally fitting to your requirements and your day. Throughout my career I have managed and worked at the highest level with many of New Orleans’s leading hotels, caterers and event planners. I’ve also had floral art displayed in the NOMA Museum here in New Orleans. I am cultured driven and love my city, NOLA.
I have managed an extensive and high profile contract portfolio, and I have nurtured and loved a talented team of florists. Flowers radiate positive energy.
With a strong sense of color and design, and a genuine passion for flower it has proved to be a winning combination, establishing Blucid Floral. I’ve had the opportunity to create a masterpiece for ESSENCE Music Festival at the Convention Center for the Crème of Nature booth. It melts my heart to see how much I’ve blossomed as a person through the love I have for my flowers.
The Historic Swoop-Duggins House, located in a historic three-story, three-bay, brick house with an attached two-story service wing located in New Orlean’s CBD, offers a private, second floor exclusively for events complete with private entry. For larger events, or guests wishing for a progressive event experience, you may opt to also include the courtyard as well as the entire first floor, Swoop’s dining room and bar, as part of your event.
The Historic Swoop-Duggins House’s event space can be privately accessed by both its own beautiful wooden staircase as well as the courtyard, both leading to the immaculately decorated rooms on the second floor. Rich colors and ornate fabrics complement the artwork that adorns the walls as well as the multiple fireplaces. The “gallery” (a balcony spanning the depth of an entire sidewalk and the full length of the building) allows guests to experience the sites and sounds of New Orleans during your event.
The space at The Historic Swoop-Duggins House provides your guests with a unique event experience in that not only do you have access to the second floor during your event, you have the option to utilize the courtyard as part of your event.
