Cynthia Klebonis, of CPK Floral Designs in Leesburg, has partnered with the Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter to provide Valentine’s Day rose bud vases and heart box chocolate candy to the women and children residing at the shelter.
She designed the bud vases to be personalized with “Angel” keychains and an encouraging message of “Faith Love Hope.”
Klebonis started her home-based floral studio in 2016 with a focus on fresh and faux floral, plants and trees. Working toward a Certified Floral Designer certification and a coveted invitation to join the American Institute of Floral Designers, Klebonis is hoping to gain experience and expertise coordinating floral projects through community service.
“While I was working on my Valentine’s Day dozen rose bouquet offer to my local community, I thought about how I could best ‘pay it forward’ to those who would really appreciate receiving floral love,” Klebonis said.
That’s when she saw the shelter’s promotion for Dance-A-Palooza III, a charity dance partythat takes place on April 6 at theTally Ho Theater.“I immediately knew I needed to make bud vases for the residents at the LAWS shelter,” she said.
Next, Klebonis is heading north to serve as a floral assistant volunteer at the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Philadelphia Flower Show in March.
