2019 was an emotional year, to say the least. My mom lost her battle with cancer, and two months later, I gave birth to our first son. I was broken; my world was shattered. But, my mom’s strength was instilled in me and her inspiration guided my sadness into creativity. Suddenly, the rungs of the corporate ladder I was climbing seemed unimportant. Entrepreneurship and owning my own business was the way forward.
I’ve always had a love for wreaths. To me, they’re not just for the holidays, but I’ve always had a difficult time finding the right one. One that’s well made, with special touches. This inspired me to begin designing my own wreaths and launch Tina Leix Floral, Wreath and Home Co., LLC in 2020.
This journey has led to inner healing and positive mental health. The symbolism of wreaths dates back to Ancient Greece, where they represented a circle of eternal life. My mom loved crafting, not necessarily wreaths & florals, but she left a beautiful mark on everything she touched. Hopping off the corporate ladder and starting a wreath business surely had to be sign. I’m so happy I can finally build my company and bring happiness to front doors, indoors and my favorite, She Sheds!
My first wreath is called “The Tina Marie” named after the strongest woman I’ve ever known, my mom. I know my Mom is proud of me. My inspiration for this wreath comes from her impeccable style, and her love for King Proteas, Peonies succulents & lush greenery. Cheers Mama!
