Welcome to our blog! Today marks the start of a long-awaited dream. The launch of our new business is a journey that spans over two decades. As I mention in my intro, I've been planning parties for as long as I can remember. I remember spending countless hours drawing the perfect wedding dress. I'd spent hours dedicating time and attention to flowers in the lace. As a child, I taught myself how to bake and decorate cakes from old french cookbooks. This love of "celebratory things" led me to entrepreneurship at a very young age. My sister and I started, bloomers, a Miami- based business which started out as a gift basket delivery service and morphed into a full service party planning company. We managed, despite advise and limited experience, to successfully grow the business for almost 6 years, ending only after a mutual decision to complete our college studies. That business changed my course of study from Architecture to Hospitality. I wanted to be a part of the fun and in an industry where I was taught to "deliver happiness'.
After college, I went on to work for great companies. Loews Hotels, Johnson and Wales, and Royal Caribbean to name a few. Through dedication to serving guests/clients and great mentorship, I developed and grew into a hospitality professional with a passion for excellence and keen attention to detail. I learned to pay attention to the details and to anticipate guests needs, that others generally missed! That was the key to my personal success. And that is the impetus which drives me daily. I look forward to continue working in this great industry and in sharing my passion with those who seek it. Cheers ! xoxo Annie
