Native Flower Company Newsletter

Issue #6
Happy New Year! Like most of you, we have shelved the holidays and shaken off the glitter, ready to begin anew. January brings an array of Dutch blooms to our coolers, like sweet-scented hyacinth and fringed tulips. We'll be seeing Japanese sweet peas in saturated hues and graceful roses from South America (check out our Flower Crush below!). Most exciting is that LOCAL anemones are just a few weeks away! Our stunning Utah mountains are covered in snow as they should be, but the incoming flowers tell us Spring truly is right around the corner. Thanks for reading!
Hi Friends! Are we all asking the same question? What happened to 2021? Or 2020 for that matter (still processing)? So much has occurred in the last two years that it's hard to summarize events and emotions. As a small business owner, it's been a daily exercise in assessing risk and remaining positive, while continuing to seek and create what will bring joy to my customers and community. We had great year at the shop despite the stress. We welcomed new team members (meet one of them below!) who have helped me immensely. ALL business owners wear a lot of hats. TOO MANY HATS! But 2021 allowed me to delegate, trust the talent within the group and gave me time to find a bit of that ever-elusive work-life balance. One cool thing was that I found space to FINALLY launch some back-burner projects, such as our new Subscription service that has been my desire for a decade! Many of you have expressed interest and signed up and I'm so grateful. Next on our calendar is Valentine's Day, always a challenge and a rush! Keep an eye out for emails revealing totally new, gorgeous designs and collabs with local bakers for some sweet gift ideas. As always, please do your best to stay safe.

FLOWER CRUSH

Meet the Blooms that Make us Swoon
When Kiya, our sales rep from Esprit Wholesale, says, "Hey, wanna check out this new rose?" We say YES! Always say yes. This is "Moab" and could the name be more apt? This is sunset on sandstone, a slot canyon stroll, a botanical journey to a red rock grotto. Stop by the shop to meet her in person!
JANUARY DESIGN OF THE MONTH

At Native, we embrace all seasons and the beauty they bring, but in January we have grown a little tired of frosty whites and greens and need some COLOR! Meet "Winter in Oaxaca" (pronounced waa-haa-kuh), available for a limited time!

Derek & Jen Williamson:
Olio Skin & Beard Company

If you've received or shopped our various gift crates, you may have noticed we feature many products created by local SLC folks, Olio Skin & Beard Company. Founded in 2013, Derek and Jennifer Williamson began the company with education as motivation, then took their products to market, launching first at Wheeler Farm Market, then expanding to purvey at the Downtown SLC Farmers Market, Park Silly Market and Craft Lake City.  

At first, the Williamsons had a partnership with Bee Smooth Skin Care, who made plant-based, cold-process soap for Olio. When Bee Smooth Skin Care had to move states, they not only encouraged, but taught Jen and Derek how to make cold-process soap.

Building on the success of their line, and keeping to their roots of education, the Williamsons added hosting classes and workshops about the function of the skin, how it works, what it needs daily and how to do skin care.

Gaining many fans and partners over the years, Olio Products will soon have a new home in The Neighborhood Hive, located in the 21st and 21st business district. The Neighborhood Hive will begin with three partnership businesses: Olio, The Bean Whole Coffee and Hello!Bulk Markets. The Hive will be an open-market concept (think Pike's Place), open every day of the week, where shoppers will be able to get fresh coffee, bread, pastries and other local food items, along with many other local products. The Hive will be available to rent for events!

Olio and The Neighborhood Hive are exemplary of what we love about our community: creativity in business and the strong spirit of camaraderie and support! We are proud to carry Olio and excited for things to come!

Team Spotlight

Meet the Native Flower Team

Kaila Mleso

Floral Designer and Social Media Manager

Kaila's journey to Native started six years ago when, after high school, she began working and learning as much she could from local shops near her home. Her passion for flowers only grew while living in London, making friends with local flower shop owners. "Out of all the different roads I’ve traveled thus far," Mleso says, "one thing has always been the same and that’s my love for flowers!" That similar passion for design and art guided her to spend two years in London, where she explored graphic and interior design. Within months of joining Native as a floral designer, she expressed an interest in branding and social media and became the company's first social media manager. "I have enjoyed being able to incorporate my love for imagery, art and communication to help Native Flower Company navigate their branding image." When it comes to flowers she loves all things greenery, whimsical and neutral. "Ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arranging, is currently my favorite," while wildflowers hold a special place in her heart. Outside of floral arranging and designing, she is a mountain girl at heart! "I love the outdoors! Rock climbing, snowboarding and fishing are some of my favorite activities! Pressing flowers, dancing and traveling also bring me great joy! I have loved being apart of the Native Flower team and meeting all the amazing locals and creatives along the way!"
