Blooms by May

What's your company story?

Blooms by May has been around since December of 2017, and was started by myself, May. I have been working in the floral industry since 2014. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and making a genuine connection with our customers. We love to get to know you and find out what occasion the flowers are for to ensure you are getting exactly what you want. Custom work is something we specialize in! If you want certain flowers paired together in a specific vase, we can do that for you. Recipes (pre-determined arrangements) are something we try to avoid because one size doesn’t fit all!

What do you enjoy most about being a Quikcard member?

We really like not having to worry about if certain claims will be covered or not, and the flexibility to deposit different amounts!

What is one thing people are surprised to learn about your business?

People are always surprised when they come in and think I am an employee! They are always shocked to learn I am the owner, I started this business when I was 20 years old.

Who is your ideal client/customer?

I love creating floral arrangements for weddings and celebrations. To be a part of someone’s special day makes me so happy! I get feedback from brides and typically end up with customers and relationships for life!

What has been your biggest challenge since COVID-19 and how did you/your business overcome it?

Since COVID, border closures have been one of the biggest challenges my business had to face. Only essential items were allowed to cross international borders, so we only received a few of the flowers we normally would. We worked hard to find out which flowers we could source locally, and our many wonderful customers have been quite understanding with new limitations on flower types available.

What is your favourite thing to do in Edmonton (or Canadian city you're from)?

I love going for walks in Edmonton’s river valley, especially in the evening!
