Parie Donaldson

Teacher, Floral Designer, Dedicated Detailer




Hi, I'm Parie Donaldson. I started in this lovely, crazy industry in 1987 in Seattle, Washington. There, I was co-owner of a thriving flower shop and later worked for three years in the wholesale flower industry. I definitely cut my teeth there in Seattle, but Texas called me back home. My floral design business in Amarillo was the premiere wedding design company in the Panhandle of Texas for 30 years. I have just recently moved to a small farm in East Texas and am enjoying my greenhouse, gardens, and dogs!

I am a proud member and ambassador of Chapel Designers. I've been teaching floral design and business management to creatives for too many years to count. I love to share my knowledge and experience in this amazing industry and always look forward to meeting wonderful designers along the way in my teaching and consulting journey.
