The Owner and Floral Designer
Melissa B. Cook showed signs of having a natural born talent at a very young age. As she became older and her talent continued to rise, her mother arranged for private art lessons with a local artist who helped her broaden her talent.
At the age of 19, she went to work in a local flower shop that was owned and operated by a Master Designer who once decorated the White House at Christmas when President Ford was in office. She worked under him for many years and learned the basics of floral design. In 1996, she took the leap and opened up her own flower shop, The Flower Gallery & Gifts in Orangeburg SC.
Melissa loves creating flowers and decorating for weddings and parties. She said she can see a bridal bouquet come together in her minds eye as the bride is describing what she wants.
Today, at the age of 50, she is still going strong and staying up to date with all the newest trends and styles. She still enjoys painting on canvas in her spare time.
