Meet Local Nicole Hodson of Boho Garden Crowns And Events

Hi! I’m so excited to be bringing you the first, “Awesome Local” feature for Fall 2016! Today’s blog interview is with the very talented Nicole Hodson of Boho Garden Crowns And Events! I’ve been following Nicole online for quite sometime and I’m in awe of all her amazingly beautiful floral creations! Warning: This post is going to make you want to dance in a flower crown and have pineapple floral arrangements in every room!

Tell us a little about yourself.

Hi! My name is Nicole Hodson! Born & raised in Syracuse NY, and transplanted here in Jupiter Florida my freshman year of high school! I met my husband (Bob) here while finishing up college (he went to FSU & I went to the art institute of Fort Lauderdale ) and the rest is history! We have one human baby named Bobby (he’s 4 years old) & hoping for another baby nugget this year!

 When did you start the Boho Garden Crowns brand and who/what was the inspiration behind starting your business?

I started Boho Garden Crowns when I graduated college. My husband and I moved to Asheville, NC (my favorite place on the planet) and I was tottally inspired by all the amazing wild flowers scattered all over town! I started making fresh crowns for locals and people visiting the city! I started selling them out of a boutique in downtown Asheville & it was a hit! We moved back to south FL, where I still continued to grow and nurture my business. I started branching out doing floral installations working close with local photographers and the bridal community! My degree is in fashion merchandising and design so I have always tied in the element of wardrobe styling into my business, which is a fun twist that my clients love!

What are the services you offer?

Fresh flower crowns, floral crown bars (think of a DIY taco station except it’s with fresh flowers to make a floral crown), floral installations for stores, events and parties, workshops, bridal/wedding packages, wreaths, and wardrobe styling!

Who makes up the Boho Garden Crowns crew?

Myself and an amazing co-worker Sara, who always comes with me to large events!

ebohocrowns_dbl2

What do you find most challenging about running your own business?

The work-life balance. I’m a business owner but I’m a mom & wife first. Making sure I set aside time for myself and my family is still challenging but I’m learning to find the balance!

What is the most rewarding thing about running your company?

The look on my clients face when they see the finished product. It’s so self fulfilling. Especially with my brides, a lot of them sit down at our initial meeting stressed, confused and not sure how all these elements will come together. The biggest compliment is when a bride/client leaves feeling relieved and excited knowing all their floral Pinterest wishes will be granted! 🌸

ebohocrowns_dbl3

What do you do on your days off?

My days off consist of waking up slow with my husband & son, cooking a great yummy breakfast or grabbing an Acai bowl and head to the beach!

How do you juggle work & family?

I make sure I set aside time for both. I try and set my phone down at a certain time everyday to be MOM & wife! Owning your own business makes you very accessible at all times. You don’t really ever “clock out” so making sure I’m honoring myself, my business, and my family is crucial!

ebohocrowns_dbl4

Where can we find Boho Garden Crowns online?

I have a Facebook: Boho Garden Crowns & Events. I also have a Instagram: bohogardencrowns  I am in the process of putting together a website in the coming year! You can find all my upcoming workshops and events on all my social media accounts!

Is there anything else you would like is to know?

I love doing workshops, I’m always trying to be very active in the community with local shops and artisans! I have tons of awesome floral workshops coming up in the next few months for the holiday season! I’m also opening a little floral cart in October outside of a boutique called Marston in Abacoa. I’ll be selling fresh floral arrangements and potted succulents!

e14467089_274247429640659_1863142398_o

As always, thanks for reading the blog, friends! I have several talented makers to feature over the next few months, so stay tuned!

Don’t forget,

if you or someone you know thinking of buying or selling a home in the Jupiter area? I’d LOVE for you to Contact Me! Let me help you have an enjoyable real estate experience! ❤️ Nicole

First Day Of Summer 2016

 

Hi y’all! I know it’s been at least 90 degrees every day for several weeks now, but actually, today is the official First Day Of Summer.

 

Hello Sumer Jupiter LocalSummer.

Hair Gets Lighter. Skin Gets Darker.

Water Gets Warmer. Drinks Get Colder.

Music Gets Louder. Nights Get Longer.

Life Gets Better.

 

Here are a few handy tips for the summer, from a local:

  1. Always check the webcam before heading to the beach. This is Florida, sometimes it’s sunny at your house and raining at the beach! Jupiter Inlet Webcam
  2. Just assume it’s going to rain EVERY afternoon. Seriously! Plan accordingly and always have an umbrella handy. Local Radar
  3. The sand at the beach is LAVA. Do NOT attempt walking on it without shoes!
  4. Sunscreen. Sunscreen. Sunscreen.
  5. Stay hydrated. This one will sneak up on you! Helpful tips on how to stay hydrated.
  6. Now that the Snow Birds are gone, enjoy eating at all you favorite restaurants, without the 2 hour wait! A few of my local favorites are: Leftover’s Cafe, The Square Grouper, Hog Snappers and Guanabanas.
  7. Home Owners: Get your A/C serviced. The worst thing is to have it go out in the summer! Airco in Jupiter is a great company. Ask for Shawn!
  8. Make sure you and your family have a Hurricane Plan. If you’re ready, Hurricane Season can go quite smoothly! Local Storm Info

Summer is our busy season around here when it comes to Real Estate. If you or someone you know are thinking of buying, selling or moving in the Northern Palm Beach County area, it’s a GREAT time to do so! I’m here to help, so please reach out!
