Meet Becky: Floral Designer/Founder
In honor of October being the 20th Anniversary of The Floral Cottage, who better to spotlight then the original founder? Becky was originally born in Garyville, Louisiana and graduated from Leon Godchaux in 1971. Shortly after graduating she began to work as a Floral Designer at a local florist. In 1995, she moved to St. Amant, LA with her family and quickly realized she wanted to start her own business. The Floral Cottage Florist officially opened on October 4, 1999 which interestingly enough is Randee’s birthday. Perhaps Becky knew when picking that date that Randee would take over the business 19 years later.
Since handing over the business to Randee, Becky has been enjoying more time with her husband of 47 years, Wayne, and her 5 rescue pups.
