Hello! I am Ashley, owner of Ivy Hutch Flowers and Gifts. Growing up I was always designing and creating. My bedroom was my “art studio” ,and my mom’s table was the perfect place for arrangements of weeds and wildflowers. I attended college at BGSU. After a few years of narrowing down my future, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Tourism/Event Planning and a minor in dance.
During my last year of college, I interned for a floral shop in Delphos. Little did I know it was the shop I would end up owning. After college I was still searching for my “career.” I loved the floral business but did not think of it as a possible job. It all came together when I landed a job in Findlay at a design and floral shop. When I started in Findlay my knowledge of flowers was basic. During the 8 months I worked there my passion, skills and personal style grew tremendously. The drive to Findlay became daunting, and there was an opening at the shop I interned for. It was perfect timing. Just 3 short years later, in October 2012, I purchased Ivy Hutch Flowers and Gifts. That same year I moved into my own house and moved the store to its current location on Elida Ave. If that was not enough, I married my high school sweetheart the following spring.
Each arrangement I make is so personal. I pour my heart into my work. Enjoy!
