Meet The Designers

Floral Designer - Owner

Cassandra Kirschbaum

Free Spirit. Young Heart. Old Soul.

Hey Friends! I'm Cassie, but you can call me Cas. I am the owner of this amazing endeavor we call Willow & Ivy Design. I am a true Midwestern girl with just enough wanderlust to crave new adventures. My dog, Bella, is my happiness, cheese is my favorite food group, and I know life is too darn short and beautiful to sweat the small stuff.

 

I grew up in a little town called New Holstein in east-central Wisconsin, which was where my love for plants sparked in my first high school botany class. I followed my passion to UW-Platteville where I earned my bachelor's degree in ornamental horticulture and business. Once I graduated, I fell into a regional manager position over multiple restaurant locations where I learned all the first-hand mechanics of running a business efficiently.

 

In my last semester of college, I met an amazing man, Sid,  whom would later become my husband. In 2015 we bought a beautiful home in Boscobel, WI and began to put down some roots. Sid and I married in October of 2016, where I did my own flowers, decor, planning, and coordination. I sang down the aisle, Sid cried, and it was the most beautiful day I could have ever imagined. We have since welcomed our first child, Roland to the crew!

 

After a few years of gaining experience in the corporate world of floral I realized that I was craving more excitement. I have always believed in doing things that scare you in life, so I jumped right in. I am so blessed to have such great clients, brides, families, and husbands. We are very much looking forward to growing, networking, and meeting new, incredible people along the way. 

I would like to thank my parents and family for raising this ambitious, hardworking girl and supporting me in everything I do. I am grateful for my husband to have a best friend to come home to that supports and believes in this venture. Oh, and a shout out to Bella & Roland...just because :)
