Yelp Elite gathered for an intimate floral workshop with Akiko Senda, owner and founder of Bloom Maven. What better way to spend a hot summer evening? Located at the Mercado San Agustin, Bloom Maven is a full service flower and plant shop offering unique arrangements, plants, cactus, event services and so much more! Guests marveled at all of the beautiful local jewelry, pottery and plants as they arrived. After a little bit of socializing and a rosé toast, we were guided through a hands-on bouquet design class. Everyone had their own unique and whimsical arrangement to take home, thanks to the guidance by Akiko and Hannah!
Akiko spent years working for large retail corporations in window/prop styling and online merchandising, which eventually led to styling weddings and events, before opening Bloom Maven in 2015.
“What a unique event! I felt lucky to attend. It was such a cool experience to learn about something new and get to practice with such an incredible product, in a gorgeous space! I will definitely be visiting Bloom Maven again for some shopping.” Kelly R.
We all learned that floral arrangements are not as easy to put together as we thought. It takes a discerning eye, patience and allowing yourself to let go and let your creative juices flow! We also learned about the process of proper trimming, cleaning and storage for the flowers. Bloom Maven hosts a ton of creative workshops from bouquet basics to vase arrangement classes, floral crown making and can even provide these services for private events like baby showers, birthdays and so much more. Their creativity is endless!
A very special thanks to our gracious hostesses Akiko and Hannah for the loveliest time ever!
