What Makes Us Unique? 

There are dozens upon dozens of great flower arranging classes out there. They are indistinguishable from one another, 

except for one, Build-a-Bloom. We help you to live a blooming life. Our classes are continuously, while often offering a different 

flower recipe. We offer unique flower recipes using fresh-cut flowers that would be extremely difficult for other workshops to duplicate.


Our fun-filled workshops teach DIY flower arranging, as well as, DIY flower crowns, wreaths, boutonnieres, flower bouquets, 

and corsages. We provide you with some valuable flower tips and techniques, too.


We charge affordable pricing for our unique services without compromising quality. We simply take something that is 

already beautifully made by the Creator and arrange them in a way that best highlights its beauty. This beauty draws 

others in to stop and admire the creation. This is where the art of floral designing begins.


About the Founder

Kim Bacon, Floral Designer 


“As a child, I spent a lot of time around flowers. I particularly loved the flowers in my grandmother’s garden. Throughout my childhood, 

it would be easy  tfind me near a garden or a park taking time out to pick a bloom and smell a flower or two. 

I always believed that flowers communicated happiness, love, hope, and peace without saying a word.


I grew up in Kansas City, Missouri and moved to Athens, Georgia in 2009. I can remember back in college while studying accounting, 

between my class breaks, I enjoyed sitting and studying my school notes in the well manicured garden of the school campus. I loved the 

sight and smell of the elegant blooms. They just seemed to bring the peace that I needed in my hectic work and school schedule. 

Although I was studying accounting and preparing for a very numbers-oriented job, I was always intrigued by flowers. 


Craving for creativity and beauty, I finally made the decision to leave the world of corporate america and branch out on my own to pursue a 

life with flowers. It is now a dream come true to take all that I have learned and experienced about flowers throughout 

my life and use it in my floral work. Here I am today doing what I love most, and that is arranging beautiful blooms 

and teaching other flower lovers to do the same.”
