It’s no surprise that Mother’s Day is one of the most important days of the year for floral studios nation-wide - but, here at Bud Floral, Mother’s Day means even more to us than your average flower shop.
Why is that, you might ask?
Well, it just so happens that every member of our floral design team is a mother herself!
Between myself (a mom of two), Karen (mom of three), Ashley (mom of three) Carey (mom of one), Jenny (mom of one), and Hanlie (also a mom of one), our studio is filled with so many wonderful mothers on a daily basis.
I am so appreciative of each one of these awesome ladies and all they do to make Bud Floral + Home such a success, but, what I really admire about them the most is the love and commitment they have for their children!
With that being said, I would like to give a special shout-out to all my Bud Moms to honor them this Mother’s Day!
Karen - mother to three children and grandmother to one grandchild
Karen just glows every time she tells a story about one of her children. She has her hands in all of their lives and helps them from babysitting the grand dog to babysitting the grand baby. She also helps care for her elderly mother all while managing us (the Bud Team) and traveling the world with her sweet husband. She keeps us all in line and does it in such a loving way that only a mother can do!
Hanlie - mother to one son
Hanlie’s from South Africa and I love the way she has embraced our culture and helps her son do the same - carpooling daily to swim all over Chattanooga is just a small part of the love that this mother has for her son!
Carey - mother to one daughter
Carey is in the middle of planning her daughter’s wedding, and she just sparkles when she talks about the wedding as well as her daughter! I love the way she embraces all of us, has motherly wisdom, and cares not only for her daughter, but for all of us here at Bud!
Jenny - mother to one daughter
Jenny juggles her time between taking care of her sweet daughter, mother, aunt, and cousin - and most recently her new puppy! Jenny’s positive energy is contagious and she is one of the most thoughtful people I know. She is the mother who remembers the snacks when we’re knee-deep in flowers, remembers all of our birthdays, and gives us great pep talks when we need them the most!
Ashley - mother to three
Ashley has just had her third baby and is always giving adoring looks to her three little cuties! She has her hands full, but she does it all with grace and patience. Each day she’s with us, the example she sets as a mother reminds us all to be a little more graceful and patient with everything we do too!
Olivia , Emily and Kennedy - they’re our young ones who ARE the daughters!
I love hearing their stories about their mothers and grandmothers and I know that they are the beautiful, engaging and responsible women they are because of those wonderful influences!
From my talented fellow designers, to my sisters, my mother-in-law, and my own amazing mother, I am constantly in awe and learning from each one of them day in and day out!
To all the mothers out there, Happy Mother’s Day from myself and the rest of the Bud Team!
