Kate Tierney, the proprietor of Twigs since 1990, has created a haven of inspiration and design excellence. Her distinctive floral designs, artistic-inspired workshops and demonstrations and exquisitely charming shops are an upstate favorite. Whether you are looking for a perfect party venue, a custom silk arrangement, a special lunch experience or a stunning wedding bouquet, Twigs has the answer. Kate’s roots are in the South; having grown up in Charleston and then graduated from both Converse College and the University of Georgia. Her early career took her to NYC, Atlanta and Miami working for JP Stevens, Ralph Lauren and Hearst Magazines.
Kate and Jay moved to Greenville in 1985 right after they were married. Currently, Jay teaches middle –school Literature at St. Joseph’s Catholic School in Greenville. On the weekends, one might catch a glimpse of him carving steaks at a wedding reception or making a local floral delivery to help keep a smooth flow at Twigs.
Any spare time Kate and Jay might have is filled to overflowing with their six, very active, very funny children.
