We’ve Announced December’s Qualification Grant Finalists!

WomensNet would like to thank everyone of you ladies in our WomensNet Community for another great year. We’re so excited to see what 2016 brings us. But, before we get too carried away we still have business to take care of from 2015. So, without further a-do here are our finalists for December’s Qualification Grant!

December’s Qualification Grant Finalists

Mott & Spry
Sarah-Eva & Ellen Marchese

In 2011, shortly after Sarah became engaged, she set out to design a bouquet based on a Victorian language of flowers. She found it to be nearly impossible to do with the limited available resources available to her.

This gave Sarah the idea for Mott & Spry. Mott & Spry, Inc. is a company that believes it’s possible to apply your style to your flowers using technology and facts, and that that type of personalization makes the best type of design possible. It’s authentic to the flowers, and to your heart. Their goal is to help millions who know less about flowers than they’d like find and express their floral style.
