Bold Business: Violets Are Blue

I recently had a fab lunch with the Owner of Violets Are Blue and am so excited to spread the word about this creative, Indy business! We asked Courtney to share a bit with us for this Bold Business spotlight.

What sets Violets are Blue apart from other florists and event designers in the area?
There are a lot of extremely talented florists in the area, and what I would say sets me apart is my background as a counselor/therapist.  I think this helps me to really listen to each bride and what she wants for her florals at her wedding.

What is your favorite part about your job?
Without question, my favorite part of my job is when the timing works out for me to have the opportunity to deliver a bridal bouquet to a bride on her wedding day.  I genuinely love seeing a bride on her special day, giving her a piece of my art that she helped me to design, and being surrounded by such true joy and happiness.  I inevitably leave with a smile on my face!

What recent project or client have you worked on/with that screamed "unique"?
I have a wedding coming up in May that has so many unique florals in it, but I think I'm going to leave that up to your readers to check out in my blog in a few months!

Where is your favorite place to relax and be inspired?
My favorite place to relax and be inspired is walking around outside when it's warm and seeing flowers in other's yards -- and naturally in my own garden!  Of course, magazines, floral blogs, and each individual bride I meet with all inspire me to challenge myself in a different way.

What do you love when you are not creating beautiful party and wedding decor?
I'm a social butterfly, as they say, and I love being social with my family and friends.  I also adore spending time with my dogs, being outside, doing arts and crafts, cooking, taking pictures, decorating and re-decorating my house, and I absolutely love to travel!  There is a lot to enjoy in this world and I try to maximize it!

Describe your business in 2 words.
Well, since 'Boldly Chic' is already taken, I suppose my two words would have to be "artfully arranged".
