My heart is so full. Over the weekend, we hosted our very first pop up at 2 popular San Jose locations - TeaLyfe and the San Pedro Square Market. We created dozens of bouquets, boxed arrangements and even had a stem bar for guests to make their own bouquets. It was such a great experience, and we got great feedback from everyone.
I'm not sure whether we will do this again, even though we got such positive and affirming feedback. We got really good exposure and helped get the brand out there. And I totally appreciated having the opportunity to talk to each and every single person who stopped by the stand. However, this experience was a ton of work - there is a thick layer of dirt under my nails from stripping leaves and pulling stems for all the customers; my feet still ache; and I probably had 8 hours of sleep all weekend as I was planning and prepping for the popup. But at the end of the day, my heart is so full. It was such a great learning experience - and for that, I do not regret a single moment of it.
Here are some mockups we made for the popup! Aren't these just gorgeous and SO perfect for Valentine's Day? We're super in love and can't wait for more subscriptions to come in so we can deliver these gorgeous arrangements and bouquets!
