MEET THE DESIGNER
MEET THE DESIGNER
My parents exuded style and love for music. My mother worked and was a full-time mom and wife by day; at night, she designed formal gowns as her creative outlet. Those talents transcended to her daughters. She was the ultimate creative. She let me dress myself and have full creative reign; except for Sundays or major gatherings. My sister designed my Cabbage Patch and Barbie clothes. Creating is nostalgic; It calms my spirit and brings me peace. It has become a way to bond with the community, tell a unique story and spread love.
Élan House's roots live in its name. "Élan" is synonymous with elegance, urbanity, and finesse that defines floral artist, Shannon Hill. "House" from the family name of her mother and inspirer-in-chief who created fearless and innovative floral, bridal and formal gowns. With a healthy dose of chutzpah in her DNA, Shannon brings fresh thinking and storytelling complemented by her love of color and texture to each one-of-a-kind design.
Shannon's ideas are sparked by the energy of a bustling city, great music, her career in the PR and digital advertising industry and traveling the world.
IN THE WORDS OF SPIKE LEE
"We Do The Right Thing"
We promise to deliver quality, one-of-a-kind designs that speak to the collaborative vision.
YOUR DAYS OF BORING
I am committed to capturing the very essence of you, your loved ones or your clients.
My fresh, seasonal designs will leave a lasting impression by creating color combinations, centerpieces and floral arrangements that ooze personality and character.
What sets my floral design apart from the rest?
I take a tremendous amount of pride in my work and go the extra mile to choose only the finest florals from local farmers, which results in elaborate compositions that are vibrant, enduring and long-lasting.
The Ladies Have Spoken!
I love Elan House! Not only does Shannon create the most beautiful, creative floral arrangement/installations, she is also professional, prompt and provides excellent customer service. I’ve recommended Elan House to numerous family and friends and they have all been equally impressed with their floral works of art.

Complete the below form to submit an inquiry. Please allow 48 hours for a response.
Where do you get your flowers?We work with a handful of local wholesalers and importers, as well as a selection of local women-owned flower farms.
How long will my flowers last? What can I do to help them last longer?The best way to care for your flowers is to keep them in fresh, cool water away from direct sunlight or heat. We've done a few experiments to see what keeps flowers fresh, and time after time, replacing vase water daily is the trick that keeps our flowers looking cute the longest. Certain varieties of flowers last longer than others, but with proper care, our cut flowers and arrangements can last 5-7 days!
Can I order a dozen roses? Or an arrangement of peonies?Élan House florists create bouquets and arrangements in our signature "bold, free-flowing style," using a fun variety of the best seasonal flowers available. Using a wide range of flowers lets our florists go wild and create fresh, one-of-a-kind arrangements.
