Flowerday-ze, a florist shop in Columbus, Ohio, offers personal arrangements, seasonal banquets, and overall exceptional customer service.
Owner Annette Vasquez opened in March 2020. At the pandemic’s peak, she invested a lot of time and money in her launch and was only open for two weeks, but she did not let that stop her from blooming Flowerday-ze into the company it is today.
Annette opened her florist shop because she loves what flowers represent. She says when they bloom, it’s a lot to take care of, however, even if you cut a flower off from its primary source, it can still bloom, flourish, and grow.A.V
All of Annette’s banquets are handmade and picked tailored explicitly to the customer’s wants and needs.
Annette gets a lot of her inspiration due to the seasons. When building an arrangement for her customers, she thinks of the client while creating it, making the experience more personable.
Annette wants her customers to know that the energy put into the bouquets is with great attention to detail and good intention in every floral arrangement she creates.
“I want to be able to provide excellent customer service that sometimes words can’t say.A.V
For Annette, building each arrangement is like art. Every centerpiece or floral arrangement has a message behind it.
A lot of the work and team effort behind Flowerday-ze is Anette and her husband. She says he pushed her to open the company and has been very supportive in this endeavor.
With me being a Mexican woman, culturally, women should have a place, and my husband is very modernized and very huge on supporting my dreams. So for that, I am forever grateful.A.V
If it weren’t for my kids, I would not have as much motivation. So we left California, leaving behind cultural stereotypes, a packed bag for each of us, and a dream to give our family much better than we had.A.V
I want to create something my children can have and generational wealth. My company is going to make a difference in this world. I want to create change by helping people in need instead of pointing fingers at someone. So Flowerday-ze’s will be a place offering second chances.A.V
Annette say’s Everyone says the world is messed up but often does nothing to create change. However, helping to make change starts with the community.A.V
Flowerday-ze has pop-ups and is currently working on having a flower display in Winan’s Chocolate, Coffee& Wine in Grandview Heights, Ohio.
Annette has plans to continue expanding, helping people feel good, loved, and valued one petal at a time.
