Movin’ On Up - The Story of Everyday Rosé Headquarters

I started Everyday Rosé Events when I was living in an apartment building. That meant my “flower studio” was on the third floor at the very end of a long hallway. Whenever I bought flowers for a client, I would unpack my car, put as many buckets as possible on a luggage cart, ride the elevator to the third floor, then cart everything down to the end of the hallway. I’d repeat that process usually three or four times to get everything up. And then once things were arranged, they went back down the same way. None of it made sense, and it was never convenient or easy.

From there I moved in with a friend who so graciously allowed me the use of his basement. I’d unpack my car one bucket at a time, taking them through the living room and kitchen to the basement stairs, up and down and up and down.

After that, I moved to my own apartment - a second floor unit because I am a glutton for punishment. Again, the flowers and boxes go up and down and up and down, around a narrow corridor and into my kitchen. There were always flower petals and leaves lying around in every room of the apartment. One time I found a boutonniere pin in my bed. Another floral designer once told me that whenever she starts to think her space is bad, she thinks about mine….

Why am I telling you all this? After four years of stairways and luggage carts and rounding corners and not being able to cook because flowers have taken over the kitchen, I FINALLY have my VERY OWN STUDIO SPACE.  I will be able to host workshops and have clients come to the space. I did as much as I could, with as little as I had, for as long as possible. And now it’s finally time to move on up!
