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. Soon after I became owner of my first retail flower shop in San Francisco. After a great run of 4 years, our family relocated to the Sacramento area and sold the shop.
Fast forward...the floral journey continues with a new store in Downtown Sac. Several years later, I made the decision to focus on what was very exciting to me - floral design for Events & Weddings...and here we are now. I really enjoy collaborating with clients about all things floral and planning what we can create for their special event. As principal designer, I am grateful to have the best team by my side. We love when clients tell us how happy they were with their florals - it's an amazing feeling!
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.
