DELEGATE: Tell us more about yourself !
Hello I’m Michelle, Lady Bloom behind The Bloomish Eden (TBE). The Bloomish Eden was actually birthed just shy of a year ago – completely out of love for flowers & wanting to do something meaningful in my contributions to society that’s beyond that usual paper chase. Be it for an everyday surprise, special occasions, events or weddings, The Bloomish Eden will always be ready to get your dose of eden going!
D: What is your vision/mission for your company?
“Soulful & Creative: Your Symbol of Love”
The Bloomish Eden is always more than just the flowers. It is our mission to use flowers as a medium to share the ultimate beauty of gifting – heartfelt thoughts put into the crafting process that touches hearts. Here, we actively invite our clients in on the process to customise edens for their loved ones. We want our edens to be something uniquely yours; something reflective of your love.
D: How did you start your business? What were some adversities you faced when you first started out?
Well, my dabbling with flowers started out from pure enthusiasm in gifting florals unique to the personality of loved ones. And as I got through university, I knew I just wanted to pursue something meaningful with what I could do. But, my initial journey into full-time floristry was not rosy as people mainly thought of it as a ‘hobby’ or ‘a phase’ I would get out of. Long story short, what really convinced me to dive right into it was what someone told me: “if you have a vision, why not pursue it with all you’ve got while you’re still young”. And that really struck a chord deep within me, so tada here I am! So you know, to those who are reading this, that’s the exact same advice I have: if you’re passionate about something & you can excel at it, then go get it tiger!
D: Most memorable experience since starting your business?
The fact that I generally have been so blessed with the many sweet clients who’ve been so kind and trusting! :’-) But if I really have to pick, it would definitely be the biggest wedding I have done so far. TBE was only a few months young but they placed complete trust in us to make their dream wedding a reality – it just meant the world! The next best part was that we actually got to interact with the family and it warmed our hearts to feel so welcomed and be part of the celebrations. And the icing on the cake was really seeing how much our work really meant to them at the end of the day! It was just such a beautiful experience I wouldn’t trade anything for.
D: What is one thing you would like your customers to know about your company?
That we may be small and young, but our passion and dedication to crafting your love with flowers is big and heartfelt. Getting flowers with The Bloomish Eden is really about moving away from that one-formula-for-all kind of floral service for your special milestones. For us, it really is about staying humble, maintaining that sincere, friendly and honest service for all every time. And so far, this has been our biggest takeaway with our clients – beautiful floral arrangements with lots of love from us. Some have even coined us as their “aunt agony” or “best friend” for flowers!
D: What aspects of your personality can we see in your work?
I personally have a strong preference for textured, rustic & wild floral arrangements as I feel it reflects nature more accurately and it is just way more beautiful that way! Hmm but translating those into ‘me’ traits would be my knack for attention to details, bringing authenticity and finding beauty in the wilderness.
D: What is one thing people don’t know about you?
I hoard more than I should…a habit I should kick really. But, doesn’t anyone else relate to those moments where you go: “oh it would have been great if I didn’t throw THAT away earlier”? Show of hands?? Because come on, how do you know when stuff comes in handy and useful? ?
D: Which habits of yours have gotten you to where you are today?
Being determined to make visualisations and dreams into reality. Also, trying to not shy away from a challenge because that’s how we grow the best. Life motto: “Nevertheless, she persisted”.
D: How do you spend your weekends/ free time?
Outside of flowers, I mainly hop around between chilling with friends, catching up on shows and cooking up something in the kitchen.D: In your own words, starting your own business is…
All-consuming but oh so fulfilling and rewarding.
D: One quote that you live by?
“Every flower blooms in its own time.” – Ken Petti
Since we are constantly under pressure when we compare ourselves to those around us, this is really just a reminder to breathe in times of hectic madness, and that although it doesn’t seem like it, everything will still turn out fine in the end. 🙂
