After much encouragement from friends and family, In Full Bloom by MJL was started by Monica Lynn in 2010. Monica specializes in florals, decor and planning for special events and weddings in Sacramento and Northern California. The blog is about more than the business, but how she lives her life "In Full Bloom" doing the things that make her happy, trying new ones, being creative and striving to become the person she wants to be (always a work in progress).
Last week I went on a personal adventure. To give you a little background/time line, I have been putting flowers together and planning parties for a long long time (I think I threw my first big pool party in 8th grade as a joint birthday party with Jeff Thompson)! More recently, I started making the decor, planning and florals an actual business! Last week I decided to put myself out there and see what kind of response I get from people who are not close personal friends and family. I designed several floral arrangements and went to local businesses to see if I could display my flowers and some cards in each one. To say the least, I had a few butterflies in my stomach. I have never been one to self-promote, but I have to in order make people aware of what I am capable of doing. The butterflies subsided with each welcoming, encouraging and supportive response. I ended up with flower arrangements at Arden Hot Yoga, Matteo's, Luna Lounge, Bella Bru, Bella Bru Express (now in Pavillions), Madam Butterfly, and Roxy! I even received a picture text Friday night from a girlfriend who spotted one of my arrangements. Did you see one?
