Home & Soul
"My mission is to create more positive energy in our world. Through my work, I strive to make a difference by utilizing my creativity to help others. I enjoy sharing tips, ideas and resources to help build harmonious, mindful homes and environments, love creating Gifts and Floral Designs for you, and hope to be
of service to those in need, in whatever way I can assist."
"My company's name has changed several times as we evolved through stages of growth. Originally named
A Floral Fantasy, then with a decade of work under our belt and the creation of
a highly successful gourmet gift-set line,
we soon added 'Gift Basket Delights'.
Eventually growing into Designs By Dia, and then rolling into GCDesigns!
With a deep appreciation for the absolute Blessings in my life, I seek to find ways to share tranquility with those whose lives I touch. In 2020, I renamed my company one last time: Serene Home Soul & Gifts.
My wish for you is that you forever find
a sense of calm, peace, and serenity in your lives, and live a long and joyful life."

ABC show, and it was fantastic! We've been clients for many years and I am consistently impressed by the attention and professionalism of everyone I have come
in contact with. Thank you for your
dedication to perfection!
Cozy, Stylish Mediterranean Luxury
"Although I was hesitant to bring in a design team to assist me with the remodel, I can't imagine what I would have done without you! The peace of mind I felt throughout the experience was priceless! The process went from dread to excitement overnight!"

wedding day. Every detail was perfect.

I imagined they would be and reflected
our tastes perfectly. Thanks for
creating our dream wedding Dia!"
A Gourmet Chef's Dream Kitchen
“It’s hard to find a company you can trust.
A friend recommended Dia, and now I know why – the quality of service I received was outstanding. Keep up the great work. I've already told friends all about you!”
Backyard Anniversary Celebration
“Our table centerpieces were elegant and affordable! The party was a big success and
all our guests commented on the simple beauty of the white and pastel blends.
We can't wait until our next event - get ready for our call. We gave your number to a bunch of friends - I'm sure you'll be busy. We'll be in touch soon for the graduation party. "
"Thank you for helping me create the perfectly romantic start of summer party.
My guests loved the floating candles, which added such warmth and ambiance to the evening. I loved the Cymbidium Orchids - they reminded me of home on the islands, and we used all the extras you left for the food trays. It looked great! Love it!"
Baby's due any day!
"We were on a tight budget and
are so grateful you took that into consideration. My husband and I really appreciate all the extra hours and care you put into our home project. The mural your artist created is exactly
what we wanted. Baby's almost here
and I'm relaxing and enjoying our
new home, all thanks to you and
your outstanding team! ”
