Rheana Coon

Owner and Director of Design

Rheana got started in the design world at a young age...seven! She was the official "glitter girl" for her father's catering company in San Diego, Ca.  Fast forward to High School, she worked in the local flower shop after school and fell in love with the art of floral design. After years of working in florals, she moved to Las Vegas to work in the world-famous Bellagio Resort, where she honed her craft of Floral Design creating florals for the casino's events and weddings, the famous lobby conservatory display, and the private villas. 

Years later she ran her own event design and production company in San Diego where her love for events grew to her absolute passion, and her and her team travelled all throughout the west coast doing amazing events in places like San Francisco, Las Vegas, New York, Los Angeles and more!

Rheana's love for events and decorating later began to expand to home decor and she realized she was meant to do it all. Rheana runs on Coffee and Wine and is always in constant Design MODE. 

Rheana currently lives in Scottsdale, Az with her dog, Lily, but there is no place she won't go for her clients and often decorates events, weddings, and homes all over the West Coast, Hawaii, and beyond!
