Colorado Florist: Get Your Flower Fix

The next time you’re in our office, take note of the flower arrangements in the lobby and conference rooms. Every Monday, EdgeRock employees look forward to new chic mini vases filled with seasonal flowers. These arrangements are done by Monica Thebaeu (pronounced tee-bo), owner of Flower Fix, a floral boutique based in Parker. We were excited to get the chance to steal her away from her busy schedule in order to ask her about the business of floral arrangements and how it blossomed into what it is today.

When did you start Flower Fix?
I started Flower Fix when I moved to Colorado in 2015, but I’ve had other flower shops since I was 19, one in Nebraska (for 15 years) and another in Kansas City.

One of the many gifts available at Flower Fix—Coffee roasters that aim at building community, biodiversity, and better wages for workers for the community in Oaxaca, Mexico

What services or products do you offer?
I mostly do arrangements for corporate and business thank you gifts, bouquets for everyday events, birthdays, get-well bouquets, and sympathy work. I also carry local and woman-owned business gifts to go along with flowers, as well. Things like chocolates or bath products. The only thing I don’t do are events or weddings.

What made you choose to start a company in this industry?
In my hometown, I worked in a florist shop and fell in love with being able to connect to people by using flowers. Being able to support a special moment in somebody’s life with flowers is a pleasure and an honor. I get to help people console or celebrate. I love being a part of that for my customers.

What is unique about your company?
The most common complaint in my industry is people not knowing when their orders are going to be delivered. My company offers confirmation emails with a photo of the bouquet you ordered so you know your order is being delivered and what it looked like. We also deliver on the weekends when a lot of other companies don’t. Everybody I work with is also highly trained.  We provide stylish bouquets without using popular fill-flowers like carnations and baby breaths We prefer to use more unique flowers at an affordable price.

How much time do you spend working on your business each day?
I start my day by creating designs for about 3 hours, then another 2-3 hours of other work. I also spend some time being involved in women’s mastermind groups and women-in-business coaching classes to better improve our quality of business.

If you could speak to your younger self, just starting out, what advice would you give him/her?
I’d tell my younger self to keep better control of my cost of goods, profit margins, and paperwork. It isn’t my strong suit as a creative mind. I wish I could have done better.
