Nellie’s Corner, Independent Floral Designer
Nellie Cassagnol Goen was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and has worked as a floral designer for over 20 years. She has been able to combine her passion for flowers and her talent in floral design into creative beauty.
Every Tuesday, Nellie makes live floral arrangements for displays at the Embassy. Her arrangements enhance the building and help add the flair and personality that make the embassy a most welcoming place.
“I have always liked flowers”, Nellie says. “Floral arrangement, to me, is an art form. It gives me a sense of peace and serenity. And this is exactly what I hope to convey to the embassy’s staff and visitors.”
Explore Nellie’s Corner every Tuesday at the Embassy for a tour of beautiful and natural elegance of floral designs. Nellie’s Corner has the ability to make you slow down and truly appreciate a moment.
