Six months ago, after our plan A was pulled from under us, I initiated plan B. I went to the wholesalers, bought some supplies, made up some samples, took some photos, and started our own business.
We weren’t sure what to call it at first, but remembered my late dad saying that your work should be good enough to put your name to it. Which is why he and Mum did that very thing.
We were Flowers by Danielle Wyatt for about a week, before we decided on Danielle Wyatt Flowers (the husband liked that it sounded like I was blooming after being severely pruned).
We started off cautiously buying minimal stock, two vases at a time, and this week we have almost a hundred arriving.
I asked the universe for five orders a day to make it viable, we now regularly have more.
I am almost at capacity for Mother’s Day weekend already, and our customer base is expanding by the day.
We would once again like to thank our very dear friends and family, and the customers who have become friends, for all their love and support, which has helped us realise that our Plan B should have been our Plan A all along.
Here’s to the next busy six months.
