We were so happy to have a visit and surprise flower gifts from Flower Studio Co. yesterday. We can’t thank Lauren enough for choosing the Matt Urban Center as one of the local non-profit organizations to receive a percentage of profits from flower subscription sales. Having the support of local businesses means the world to us, and to make giving back part of her mission from the first year in business makes Flower Studio Co. truly unique.
