Local Flower Shop Announces Partnership and Expansion of Services


Waterbury, VT (March 8, 2019) – Waterbury flower shop, Proud Flower, is excited to announce the launch of Proud Flower Studio – a branch of the business that will focus on weddings.

Nina Towne, founder and owner of Proud Flower, has partnered with Jasmine Bigelow, who will be the owner-manager of Proud Flower Studio.  Jasmine will provide all wedding flower services on behalf of Proud Flower, and also offer event design and specialty rentals, as Proud Flower Studio.

“I am so excited to have Jasmine join the Proud Flower family,” says Towne, “She is a creative soul, talented designer, and a resourceful, caring individual.  Jasmine’s talents are a fabulous fit for the floral business, and she’s the perfect person to be working with our customers and friends on their special celebrations.  After 10 years in business, as primarily a one-woman show,  I’m welcoming a savvy, smart, creative partner, and we will grow Proud Flower together.”

“This is a dream for me,” says Bigelow, “Both to make celebrations come to life for people, and to collaborate with Nina.  I’ve known Nina for a long time, and I’ve always been impressed, not just with her incredible floral artistry, but also with her beloved reputation and positive relationships within the community.  That is really important to me in finding a business partner.”  

Proud Flower Studio will officially open on June 1st, at 80 South Main Street, in the space next to Proud Flower.  Jasmine is currently meeting with clients and booking dates.  Information can be found at

Nina will continue to make fabulous floral arrangements for shop walk-ins, deliveries, corporate weeklies, and events other than weddings.  Proud Flower also sells plants, gifts, cards, local art, and Nina's husband Zebulon's 'SugarTowne' maple syrup.   Information can be found at
