ABOUT

Chastain’s Floral

A little information about Sandra Chastain..

After I graduated from East Meadow High School in Long Island, New York, a friend asked me what I was going to do with my life. I told him I was going to be a florist and someday I would have my own floral shop. When I moved back home to Columbia, S.C. in 1996, I went to work with a local Florist and won the “Designer of the Year” award for the Midlands. Soon after, I was offered a position with Rosewood Florist where I worked with some of the most talented designers I could have ever met. Since my amibition was to become one of the best, I worked hard and welcomed the opportunity to learn from the best.

Chastain’s Floral

Throughout the years, I entered numerous flower shows and design competitions and never gave up on my dream to have my own floral shop. While working at Rosewood I met my future husband, a local floral importer. After we were married, I decided to branch out and start my own business. The door started to open for me when I was selected to design and furnish the flowers for the Grand Gala for the opening of the new Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center. This successful project led to me being selected to direct and design floral arrangements for some high profile weddings and parties. I was on my way.

I have been privileged to have the opportunity to work with Professor Annette Hoover, instructing the Wedding and Management Consultancy Base Course as well as the Festival and Weddings Management Course at the University of South Carolina, during which I worked on the “Love Story” weddings.

This was a wonderful opportunity to assist the students with their career goals. For the last three years, my floral shop has furnished the flowers for the Kappa Delta Sorority at USC for “Rush”, the “Sorority Recruitment” event. In 2009, Chastain’s Floral was selected by the USC football coaches’ wives to design and furnish monthly flower arrangements for Mrs. Steve Spurrier’s home.

I am proud to say I have fulfilled my life’s ambition. We like to say at my shop “we don’t just talk about wedding dreams; we truly make them happen”. With the love and support of my family and friends, I am now the florist that I wanted to become and have my own floral shop. I design and furnish flower arrangements for weddings, parties and special events. I also direct and provide professional consultation for weddings and special events. No job is too small or too large for me and my professional experienced staff to handle. Our friendly and personal service will help us to reach our goal to create a memory that will last you a lifetime.
