The start came one dreary Saturday morning in November when I was at a loose end. My husband was at work and my girls were busy with one thing or another. I took a trip to the local floristry cash and carry and came out with loads of Christmas goodies…various felt bags, floristry boxes, ribbons and foam! My husband came home from work to boxes of bits and pieces and wondered what on earth I was doing – I’m sure he thought I had gone mad!
I initially called myself Sweet Treatz after a brain storming session at work and started making chocolate bouquets and small chocolate gifts for friends. Meal times were fun in our house as I hijacked the dining room table, especially as I was getting more requests. Luckily we were having an extension built and the ‘Study’ soon became full of Santa Trains, Rudolph, Father Christmas and Snowmen! I had not been well and decided to invest in me and my hobby, as it was then. I completed a training course to enable me to enhance the look and feel of my bouquets. After finishing this I decided a rename was in order, as Sweet Treatz just didn’t feel right…and Candy Blossoms was born! In July 2018, I took the brave decision to make this my main commitment, and I left my full-time job in Pensions and Employee Benefits, to put my heart and soul into making Candy Blossoms the amazing business I know it can and will be.
