Introduced at an early age to sewing, textiles and gardening by both grandmothers, Courtney has a long heritage of creativity. What started as a hobby developed into a career path, as she first pursued formal artistic training, then became a professional theatrical Costume Designer, and even branched into her own line of home soft goods called Floradora, Inc. Courtney brings a wide variety of design skills and experience to Spruce & Co. and loves the thrill of transforming a space for the season or creating an atmosphere for an event. Her rich background in the arts and her passion for design drive her inspiration for each client. She loves to host her own friends for al fresco meals under the big oak tree and knows that every successful event is filled with laughter and joy.
Jennifer is a physician assistant by trade and has been practicing for over 15 years. This has taught her to manage very complex situations efficiently and with precision. However, she longed to use the other side of her brain and sought a creative outlet. This was found through her love of plants and flowers that was handed down to her from her grandparents. This passion, combined with a knack for hospitality, led her to hosting events personally and eventually designing them for others. Jennifer loves creating inviting spaces where all can feel welcomed in and wowed at the same time. Her eye for detail, exquisite taste, and ability to transform a space make her an excellent addition to the design team of Spruce & Co.
