Nicol has been in the floral arrangement business for over 30 years. Her floral arranging started in Europe working for top hotels in Switzerland and France. She moved to Philadelphia in 1994 to join her husband in opening nationally-recognized Tierra Restaurant in Gulph Mills (now Savona Restaurant). Nicol’s fresh flower arrangements and decor played a pivotal role in the restaurant's success.
In 2015 when her kids were starting to head to college and Nicol was able to devote more time to her business, she opened a full service silk floral business, Nicol Floral Design. She designs silk floral walls for weddings, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, baby showers, birthday parties, religious ceremonies, corporate events and fundraisers. Nicol also designs silk floral pieces for home and office interiors. All of her experience with floral arranging through the years, as well as her multicultural background, translates into stunning custom silk designs. With her signature obsession to detail, Nicol works closely with each client to identify their needs, minimize costs and exceed expectations.
Nicol attributes her success to the support she gets from her family, especially her three children. They have supported her every step of the way along her journey into the event decor industry.
As a way of giving back to her community, Nicol offers her showroom space to local charities for fundraisers on WEDNESDAY NIGHTS FROM 5:00 PM TO 7:00 PM. Click here for more information.
