Ever find yourself in need of a beautiful bouquet? I do too, and so I make the trek to the nearest grocery store to purchase the perfect bunch, only to find disappointing, simple bouquets wrapped in crinkled plastic. A couple of wilted petals are standard with these boring, albeit convenient flower arrangements.
Your quest for an exciting bunch of blooms doesn’t have to come to this tragic end though – not when there’s Flora Flower Cart. Born of her love for gardening and arranging flowers with her dad, Jaeleen Shaw’s mobile flower arranging cart was a labor of love. It was designed by her and a close friend, built by her father and husband, and skyrocketed to popularity in the Central Valley. I can confidently guess that the reason for their sudden rise in fame is the unique experience of customizing your own bouquet. Having total control of which flowers go in your arrangement is rare, and Flora Flower Cart certainly makes it special.
Jaeleen has been in the flower business for just over a year now and absolutely loves the community’s excitement to support her imaginative concept. In her experience of reaching out to other local businesses, expanding her own, and spreading happiness through her locally grown blossoms, Jaeleen has never seen a more receptive audience. Her favorite thing about Flora Flower Cart’s growth? Meeting new people every day and putting smiles on their faces.
Because really, who can resist a cart this cute, with a smile that big…it’s like it came straight off of Pinterest!
Earlier this week Flora Flower Cart made an appearance at the FresYes office, and it certainly brightened our agents’ morning to be greeted by the fun and fresh cart and its wonderfully sweet owner! Seeing all the bright (and unwilted) flowers lined up ready for my picking was the highlight of my day…and you can be sure I took advantage of THAT opportunity.
Next on Jaeleen’s agenda for Flora Flower Cart is growing the number of deliveries and subscriptions she fulfills. Yes, you read that right. She delivers these amazing bouquets right to your door. Can you imagine what it would be like to have one of these arrangements handed to you every month? I can, and it would be absolutely magical!
If you would like to see more of Jaeleen’s creations and keep up with Flora Flower Cart’s whereabouts, you can follow her on Facebook and Instagram @floraflowercart. To order a special delivery for that special someone (or yourself, I won’t judge) visit her website floraflowercart.com. Wouldn’t it be nice to decorate your home with some of these blooms? I think so.
