Once Upon a Quarantine...
Thank you for visiting this magical studio! My name is Crystal, your flower fairy, artist and owner of Ever After Bouquet.
We all have an emotional tie with florals, whether it be a name, an occasion, or a memory...flowers tell a story. Here's a little bit about me, my journey, and my personal sentiment with flowers.
My story begins in Colorado before relocating to Southern California in 2017, leaving my beloved corporate sales desk behind with a business degree and great resume, though I quickly discovered that planting roots in the golden state can be challenging. I found myself working gigs until the year 2020.
While unemployed due to covid, I began this new hobby, dedicating my entire quarantine (over a year) to learning, experimenting, and perfecting this technique. I invested my unemployment paychecks into this expensive venture, with little certainty of the economic future.
When this passion began, there were hardly molds available, there was no trending Tik Tok , or tutorials on this floral science. I took notes, crafted my own molds, and forced myself to make every mistake possible before accepting a wedding bouquet.
Against the odds, I took a leap of faith this business would bloom. I am delighted to first introduce this modern twist on floral preservation to Southern California weddings.
Quarantine for me, was much a blessing as one of the many new entreprenuers who found thier creative niche during this time. I am currently working on a special project in honor of those who were less fortunate and lost a loved one.
