Please join the Seabrook Island Garden Club and welcome guest speaker Susanne Strehle on Seabrook Island at the Oyster Catcher Community Center on Friday, January 10, 2020 at 9:30 am.

Originally from Augusta, Georgia, Susanne is now a member of the Seabrook Island Community. She fell in love with flowers when her first born was just a toddler and worked one day a week in a local flower shop to pursue her passion. She took orders over the phone but loved watching the designers and their creations.

SusanneSuzanne is a graduate of the American College of Allied Arts in Atlanta. She also studied with a Japanese Ikebana teacher for five years and traveled to Japan to earn her degree in Sogetsu Ikebana. She has enjoyed a lengthy career, and has worked every facet of the industry. In 1986 she was inducted into the very selective and prestigious American Institute of Floral Designers.

As a florist and event coordinator in Augusta she acquired some very important accounts including: Mercedes Benz, IBM, Golf Digest and Rolex among many others. This earned her a sweet ride down Magnolia Lane every year. When she decided to move to Seabrook she sold her shop in Augusta and continues to build her business here in Seabrook, Kiawah and Charleston. She works with many local country clubs doing their holiday decor and members social events.
