Hey, it's me Vicky...
Yes, I've been in the flower business for over 20 years now - and still love it!
I started my floral journey working at the San Francisco Flower Mart (my college job as I finished my undergraduate in Business at SFSU). The best college job ever!! If you haven't been to the SF Flower Mart, it's a must - it's flower heaven. I ended up working there for more than 8 years!
After graduating from SFSU, I completed the floristry program at CCSF further expanding my design skills. The journey led me to being the proud owner of my first retail flower shop in San Francisco. Our family then relocated to the Sacramento area and I sold the store after a great run of 4 years.
Fast forward...the floral journey continues and I open another shop, this time in Downtown Sac. A few years later with the climate of the traditional flower shop changing rapidly, I made the decision to focus on what was really exciting to me - floral design for EVENTS & WEDDINGS. And here we are now. I still feel as passionate about flowers as when I worked at the flower market many, many years ago. I really enjoy collaborating with clients about all things floral and planning what we can create for their special event. Of course, I couldn't do all this by myself and am so happy to have the best team by my side! We love when clients tell us how happy they were with their florals - that feeling is amazing!
Some exciting news... I started a floral workshop series "Blooms & Bubbly", where I get to share the floral design knowledge & skills I've gained over the years and pair the experience with a little bit of bubbly. Because why not? Two of my favorites combined! Please check out our Blooms & Bubbly page for more info.
