OK, admit it, you sang that in the Frozen tune? Well, I did at least. But really, do you want to be a florist? Or do you know someone who does? Well now is your chance! Blooming Envy is moving to Scandinavia and the studio in Iola is for sale. You may have already heard as it has already been a few months since my listing went live.
Why you ask? Weddings!! It's really that simple. Weddings are my passion!! So the plan is to relocate to a studio that will better fit my needs as a specialty wedding florist. Yes, you heard that right, I want to design for weddings exclusively once again. Going back to my roots you could say. I always knew deep down when I opened the studio on Main Street it was only a steppingstone. My family was moving, and I needed a place to continue my wedding work until a new studio could be built. At that time, I only added the retail florist services to help pay for the added expense of the building and utilities. I never in my wildest dreams thought it would grow to where it's at today.
So, that brings me back to do you want to be a florist? Over the last 6 years in my current studio, I have found that the town of Iola really benefits from having a retail florist. I have the pleasure of making deliverers for birthday, anniversaries, get wells and countless other occasions. I have been trusted more times than I can count to make arrangements for celebrations of life, our local funeral home is directly across the street after all. There are many churches in the area that have used my services for altar flowers or confirmations. The high school keeps me busy with homecoming, prom, parent’s night and graduation...you get the idea. I really feel strongly that Iola needs a flower shop! So, if you have experience in floristry or even a strong desire to learn I think this could be a great opportunity for you.
Now I know what your next questions is. When are you moving? That one is a bit trickery to answer. For now, my best answer is when the studio in Iola sells or the end of the year, whichever comes first. Until then I am still here. So please help spread the word and let's keep a flower shop in Iola!
