MY STORY IN FLOWERS...
My first job in a flower shop was in 1999. I learned so much about basic design and found it came naturally to me. Two years later I went to work at a more eclectic and high end florist. That is where I really excelled. I was given the opportunity to learn the art of design with fresh and silk flowers with amazing support!
I value those years every time I design for a customer.
I took a small hiatus from floral design and became a display merchandiser for a well-known furniture store, but I did continue to do custom silk florals. I couldn’t break my need for floral design and went back!
I worked at 3 small community-town florists in the area before deciding I wanted to specialize in wedding flowers.
In 2012 I started Corey Allen Designs. I found great success in my venture and when the opportunity came up for me to buy Posy, I thought, “This is my next step!” I have been very blessed with supportive family and friends, and I am lucky enough to get to meet new people every day!

It took me 40 years, and I finally grew up! I have wonderfully supportive parents, who raised my 4 siblings and I in Burnsville, MN.
In 2005, I met my better half and he brought myself and my two children back to his hometown of New Prague. In 2008 we built our home on the farm he grew up on, and currently runs. As I am not a very good farmer (oh the stories I could tell), I needed to go back to what I’m good at…Floral Design!
