About Us

Hello, thanks for visiting!

I am Barbara Samaniego, lover of all things beautiful. At the top of the list, well... flowers, naturally! To me flowers are art, a gift, and a pleasure to work with.

I started my career in the jewelry industry, working in wholesale manufacturing, retail, design and repairs. I honed a skill set for attention to detail.

One day I walked into a fabulous flower shop in Chicago, A New Leaf, and decided to apply for a side gig. In short time, I knew that working with flowers was my passion.  But, after years of working in retail environments churning out arrangements, I decided the customer deserved more specialized attention.

Focus Floral was created for just that reason, working exclusively on Event Flowers. Here you will be heard. With your dreams and my expertise, I will be your floral fairy godmother! :)

Reach out! email: barbara@focusfloral.com or call us: 239-248-0409

Other loves: art, boots, cooking, chocolate, dancing, family, friends, gems, jewelry, and travel.
