Ruth Haskins, Chief Creative Officer & Co-Owner

Hello, I co-own Elizabethtown Florist and Events and Posh Posy Event Design Studio. There you will not find me in the creative aspects. You will find me in the business side of things. When Ruth and I met I was an educator at the local high school in Elizabethtown. A Mutual Friend introduced us. My first impression of Ruth was cute, cute, cute! Ruth has a quirky style all of her own and so do I. We work well together and are a perfect fit.

I am an Ohio Native, (Ruth has made me a bit of a Southern Yankee.) I was an educator for 38 years before retiring the day before Ruth and I married. So, together with our marriage celebration I had a heck of a retirement party. I have 3 adult children Heather, Ian and Hayley, 4 step-children and 4 grandchildren Devin, Conner, Shawn and Gavin. Together Ruth and I have our fur baby Raylee.

I enjoy our home at Ocean Isle Beach. When I am not working I get enjoyment watching Browns Football, being a part of  the Browns Backer Club, working out, playing Apba Football, watching Sienfield reruns, Bible study, spending time with Ruth and Raylee, visiting my children and being by the sea every chance I get.

I never dreamed that I would be a business owner. It has always been my dream to retire by the ocean and that's what brought me to North Carolina. Tragic life events brought Ruth and I together and God has blessed us with each other. We get to do this thing called life together and we both are living our dreams.




 Hi there, I am the creator, co-owner, and Lead Designer-Stylist of Posh Posy. I am a wife of the perfect man for me, (Dale), the mother of four adult children (Derrick, Lindsey, Westlee and Kevin), 3 step-children and 4 step- grandchildren all of whom I am very proud of.

I have been in the floral and event industry for 14 year.. Most of those years I have co-owned and operated Elizabethtown Florist of which Posh Posy is an expansion of.

Flowers have been a part of my life since I was a little girl picking them in grandmothers flower garden to make pretend wedding bouquets for my wedding parties of ears of corn. Flowers have always been a hobby for me. It wasn't until later in my life that I discovered the entrepreneur in myself.  

I enjoy meeting people and learning their story, reading, entertaining, being with my  husband and family, decorating, fashion and music especially Elvis Presley but don’t let that date me. My desire is to live out my God given purpose and serve others well.
