We had the good fortune of connecting with Teri Ryan DeVore and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Teri, what do you attribute your success to?
My Dad and Mom owned an advertising agency for 30 years and my dad instilled in me that in business the number one most important thing ever is your client and what they need. So answering people right away and bending over backwards to accommodate them is what we do. Flowers are so emotional and can be very important to people as a way of expressing themselves with more than just words. There have been many times we have moved everything around to fulfill requests no mater what and this is true whether its for an A list star or a teacher or a bartender or an 17 year old getting flowers for their prom date. We make sure everyone is equally important.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I have said it many times but I think the most important things about our design is how much we truly love the flowers. We make our flower arrangements thinking about the reason the client is sending them and how it makes us feel. I think you can see the end result of that it in our work. I hope so anyway.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Well right now with Covid that is a hard question. I would take them to restaurants Mozza, Spreranza, Musso and Frank, See a concert at The Greek and The Hollywood Bowl. Watch a movie in the Cinerama Dome. Walk around Lake Hollywood. Watch a Play in the Will Geer Theater in Topanga Canyon.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Sharon Lowe my business partner. I am endlessly inspired by her. My husband who is always cheering me on. Also my Parents who have ALWAYS made sure I know that I can be anything I want by working hard.
