This week I met some incredible floral designers!
First I met with Bloomster’s in San Jose. So many people had been telling me about them that I just knew I had to swing by their shop. I had met Kren (the owner) and Elizabeth previously at a venue I visited the week before. They were setting up for a wedding with an English garden theme. It was divine and I could see why they were so highly recommended.
When I stopped into the shop, Kren had already left to set up for an event but Elizabeth was kind enough to meet with me and was an absolute wealth of knowledge. She made a list of some venues she recommended I go see – many of which I had not yet heard of which was great! They do a lot of events around town and even looking around their store you can tell why.
Another great meeting was with Kellye Clifford from Precious and Blooming. Kellye has a background in retail but decided to pursue her passion in floral design. Even they way she talks about the business, you can feel her passion.
We met up at a coffee shop in Los Gatos where we discussed flowers, event planning and starting a business. She had so many nuggets of wisdom and was a great cheerleader for me doling out helpful hints and tips.
Meeting all of these creative people is really starting to feed my fire to jump back in there and plan some spectacular events!
And the highlight of this week (other than my birthday of course!) is that I have had a few inquiry calls from clients who have been referred to me by some of the venues I’ve visited. It is really starting to happen.
What a great birthday gift!
