Growing up in the Netherlands, Bianca started to work with flowers at a young age. Her mother had a garden where they grew a wide variety of flowers, and both her and her mother would create arrangements with them. Some of the arrangements graced their home, while others were given to family members and friends.

At the age of 12, Bianca went to a vocational school that specialized in floral design. Around the same time, she also started to work in a local flower shop on the weekends. She had an innate ability to understand what the customers wanted and infused that into each arrangement.

After vocational school, Bianca went onto Florens College in Aalsmeer. Here she honed her skills in a wide variety of floral design styles. Her intuitive understanding of floral design coupled with her understanding of her customers earned her the highest degrees in college.

In 1988, Bianca decided to come to America to work and teach the principles of European floral design. Her work garnered her a position with the Society of American Florists as well as a coveted position of making floral arrangements for Mrs. Barbara Bush at the White House. She has a sense of communicating what the new trends are emerging and often times is the one starting them. She holds the title of FTD Master Designer and received the prestigious Designer of the Year award for the State of Maryland in 1992.

Bianca and Ann have worked together for 15 years.

She worked for Ann in her floral shop in Baltimore,

then in 2004, she and Ann decided to close the retail

shop and focus their energies on their clientele.

They felt that they could better serve their clients

with more personalized attention. Weddings, floral

arrangements for special events, and also funeral

design is the main focus of Fantastic Flowers.

After 8 years of working very hard with Bianca to

make Fantastic Flowers one of the top wedding

florist in the Annapolis area, Ann decided to retire.

Ann will still be somewhat involved with

consultations and some deliveries, but she is looking

forward to spending more of her time on her other

passion, Ballroom Dancing.

Bianca has a group of experienced and talented

designers assisting her on large weddings and

parties. Together with her team, Bianca will uphold

the superior quality of design and service so many

brides have been raving about!
