Its me Vicky
Yes, I've been in the flower business for over 20 years now...
I started my floral journey while working at the San Francisco Flower Market (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 Market, it's a must - it's flower heaven. I ended up working there for more than 8 years!
After graduating from SFSU, I took the floristry program at CCSF to expand my knowledge and design skills.
A huge opportunity then presented itself - I took the plunge became the owner of my first retail flower shop in San Francisco. After a successful run of 4 years, I sold the shop after getting married, having our second child and learning that my husband's new job would take us to our new home in the Sacramento area.
Fast forward...I opened my second retail flower shop in Downtown Sac in 2006, after 6 years, I decided I really just wanted to focus on floral design for weddings & events.
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 believe my clients can tell how excited I get talking about flowers and what we can create for their wedding day. When I'm not doing floral design, you'll find me helping my husband at our wine bar (or maybe just there drinking wine).
I just created a floral workshop series "Blooms & Bubbly", where I get to share some of the knowledge and skills I've gained over the many years. Stay tuned...
