📣 SMALL BUSINESS SHOUTOUT 📣: Eternal Blooms
If you're looking for a unique way to remember your special day or looking for a memorable wedding gift, check out Eternal Blooms Flower Preservation!
Q: What's the story behind why you started your business?
I started my journey with flower preservation five years ago while recovering from surgery for my chronic illness, endometriosis. What started as a form of therapy has since bloomed into a thriving business where I get to help people preserve their most precious moments and beloved memories.
Q: What can customers expect?
I pour my heart and soul into every single piece of art I create. Whether it be a wedding bouquet, flowers from a baby shower, memorial flowers, or homegrown from your garden- I take great pride in preserving the beauty of nature. Its truly an honor to be trusted with something so special, to be cherished by my clients for a lifetime.
I have spent years learning all the different methods and perfecting my craft. Whether it be pressed or dried full shape, framed or cast in resin and made into functional keepsakes and home décor, you’re sure to find something that caters to your style, while still feeling like a unique, one-of-a-kind piece of art.
I would like to point out that this is a specialty service that should be booked well in advance, like other wedding vendors. As hard as it is, sometimes I have to turn away brides because they waited until after their wedding and I was fully booked, or their flowers are too far gone. I send out care tips to the clients that book ahead for their fresh florals, ensuring they arrive to me in the best condition possible!
Q: Can you share an insider tip about your neighbourhood?
A new Rec Center is coming to Lakeside!!!
Q: What are some other local businesses people should check out if they’re in the area?
I absolutely love D & Jo’s Country Farm Market! Not only do they have fresh, local produce and baked goods, they have hard serve ice cream! What better way to end a nice stroll on the BLT Trail than a scoop of Moon Mist ice cream?!
Q: Are you working on any new projects?
Eternal Blooms Flower Preservation is a one woman show, so right now I’m trying to figure out which aspects of my business I can potentially hire help for, and hopefully get myself into some much needed studio space. I am also a new mom, so trying to find a good work/family balance is something I’m working hard on. I’m looking forward to the upcoming wedding season, and all the bouquets coming my way!
Follow my journey as I pursue my passion. A local small business that is just starting to bloom!
