Check Out Jayda Garrett’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jayda Garrett. Them and their team share their story with us below:

“Welcome to the party”

Plush Petals Designs launched when two cousins coordinated an event while simultaneously sharing their passion for creating ambiance and simplicity during life’s momentous events. Once the passion started, so did the business, our services started to become more and more sought after. What started as a bonding experience between cousins turned into a business surrounded by family. As business began to progress, our parents started helping out more and more, then siblings, then cousins, then aunts and so on. As our story grew so did our touch with the community and those who help us create this vision. What started as just event décor flourished to wedding coordination, event rentals, and decorating. Five years later, Plush Petal Designs still continues to grow and thrive here in Baltimore, Maryland. Striving for perfection and creating an experience for every client and guest. We strive to create elegant celebrations from our unique ability to build upon your creative vision through innovative event concepts. We listen carefully to identify your goals and craft an event that always exceeds your expectations.

“We don’t look for a beautiful space, we make a space beautiful”.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
This road has been the bumpiest but the most rewarding. As careers started to thrive amongst the family some moved forward and some stayed. This of course made the workload heavier and more complex for one individual. This business has thrived on down times when there we no booking to being triple booked on weekends. The event industry is a phase it’s all contingent upon trends, seasons, and excitement. The bumpiest part of the road so far as to have been COVID-19. In 2019 business was on an incline, events were booked every weekend and we was building a solid following for ourselves. Once the pandemic started parties was canceled, clients were not booking, and there was no congregating. Business went from being booked every weekend to maybe a booking once a month. This hindered business tremendously, but we still persevered.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
What sets us aside from other businesses in our industry is the family aspect. We don’t just decorate or coordinate events; we work side by side with clients on a day to day basis to make every event and experience. We are most known for our hospitality, all our clients are returning clients who become family. The connection between making a person feel comfortable to converse about what it is that they really want out of an event to execution is an absolute experience. Clients build an absolute trust in judgment and execution that our skills will advance their expectations. A business that started off as just a family thing to decorate for our birthday parties or family gatherings grew into building inventory to run a full-time event company. As we started networking more and more with event vendors, we started seeing the rise of African American-owned and operated companies in the event industry that no one knew of. This led us to “Oh so lovely” our first pop up shop in 2019. A networking event where all these vendors we have met could come together and display their talents.
