Warm weather is on the horizon! Spring is finally here, therefore grass will be greener, leaves on trees will bud and flowers will grow. During this time of the year, farmers markets will open and grocery stores will start to sell a majority of planters and flower arrangements to the people in the community.
Rosemary Nyhoff is the founder of Time 4 Flowers, it is a locally run business that focuses on floral arrangements for weddings, funerals and other special occasions. This business is located in London but can also serve anyone outside of the city. Since the Spring season is upon us, Rosemary is springing into action with her business and will soon start to receive many orders for upcoming events taking place in the Spring and Summer.
There are many factors when it comes to running a business and Nyhoff works very hard to ensure that her business thrives. Overall, her goal is to please people in and outside of the community and provide a service that helps create a relationship with her clients.
“Right now my goal is to do 50 weddings this year and I’m working on a new website so people can start ordering online; do more sympathy arrangements, do more day-to-day arrangements. So pretty much everything a shop would do, I just do it without a shop.”
Rosemary always had a passion for being creative and loves interacting with people. Having worked in the customer service and administration world for over 14 years, it was time for a creative change. She went after her dream of being creative in a world she has loved for a long time.
Time 4 Flowers started only after being in the Floral Design Program for 2 semesters and Nyhoff hasn’t regretted it for a second. Graduating only 2 years later, she has built up Time 4 Flowers and has been a part of almost 100 weddings in only 4 short years. Nyhoff loves everything that has to do with weddings, however never imagined working in the wedding industry herself.
“I was going back to school for a wedding planner and then my husband said that I should do something beside it because London is very conservative. So he said just wedding planner alone won’t cut it and then he said do something creative cause’ you’re always saying that you can be creative. So I signed up for the floral design program at Fanshawe and fell in love with it and now I’m here, I’m doing it.”
Nyhoff enjoys her work and is looking forward to what the future holds for her small business.
