"My goal with MILA is to glorify nature when bringing her into our homes. Each stem that goes into an arrangement or bouquet is devotedly appreciated. Creating the floral pieces is a way for me to express myself and medicine for the spirit of those who receive it. The most important ingredient in my arrangements is love and passion." - Camilla Vergani
