“Be true to yourself and your work will be a daily source of joy!” Kim of August Floral & Event Design is letting us in on a few tips for aspiring small business owners, and we think no truer words have been spoken. From the way she runs her company to her incredibly beautiful work, we think Kim has this whole small business thing totally figured out. We were lucky enough to see what Kim can bring to the table (no pun intended) at The Big Fake Wedding Savannah, and are thrilled to share more about her in today’s Vendor Highlight.
“Kim was amazing to work with. She was SO enthusiastic about the event and her work was so beautiful. She takes her job seriously and you can tell how much she loves what she does by the quality of her work. She’s also got a killer personality.”

Describe August Floral & Event Design in five words or less.
Exceptional design, rich in detail.
What is the best part of your job?
Working with clients to develop a grain of an idea into something spectacular.
Who or what inspires you?
That’s a hard one… I suppose if I had to pick two, history and nature inspire me. Being a lover of European history and all its accouterments, I find that my designs reflect the rich colors, textures and depth of eras gone by. My surroundings also inspire me. I could easily pull over and pick up a fallen branch and create a party design around it. The colors and form and shadow and imperfections of nature inspire me.
What advice would you give to aspiring small business owners?
Make a plan and go for it! I have been in business for a very short time, but am so thrilled that I went for it. You just have to make a focused plan and ask lots of questions from people who have been there and succeeded. Be true to yourself and your work will be a daily source of joy!
What is your favorite part of The Big Fake Wedding experience?
Meeting everyone! As a recent arrival to Savannah, I need to network. I met so many talented people who want to work with me now. Oh, and I acquired a client who has her wedding in two weeks! My first client came from The Big Fake Wedding!
