Kristen Bullard opened Full Bloom in Celina in 2018. However, she quickly outgrew that space and needed to be replanted. In 2019, instead of moving to another storefront, she opted for a warehouse in Frisco.
“Being in a warehouse, we are able to do a lot of large events,” Bullard said. The business’ website lists weddings, corporate events, product launches, and fundraising galas as some examples of events for which Full Bloom can provide services.
Bullard grew up around flowers in that her mother and grandmother had a great eye for floral design, she said, and her grandmother grew flowers on an acre of land in Iowa. However, when running her business, she does not draw on this botanical influence as much as she does in her ten years as a consultant for small and medium-sized businesses.
“My strength is not designing; it’s hiring the right people who represent the Full Bloom brand,” she said. Bullard orders flowers directly from Columbia, Ecuador, and Holland. If she could only stock five flowers, Bullard said she would put peonies as her first choice because “they’re gorgeous and have the best fragrance of any flower.” Rounding out her top picks are hydrangeas, orchids, sunflowers, and roses.
