Mood Board for 2022 Bloom Trust Co. Circle sessions









In this episode, we’re chatting with Jen and Kori about their experiences as part of CIRCLE 2021 and we’re sharing some new opportunities for 2022. We’re especially excited to introduce you to a new member of the CIRCLE team, as well.

Twyla Reimer, owner of Remi + Gold, recently made two appearances on the Botanical Brouhaha Podcast (Ep. 88 & Ep. 89) sharing parts of her business journey and letting us in on some of the nitty gritty details of managing a team and working on destination weddings. Twyla is joining us to facilitate the new CIRCLE Weddings session starting March 8, 2022.



CIRCLE is a place to lay down the day-to-day pressures of running, building, or anticipating a flower business. For 8 weeks, you’ll be surrounded by encouraging peers as you relax into the transparency facilitated and modeled by your hosts, Amy McGee (Botanical Brouhaha + Bloom Trust Co.), Natalie Gill (Native Poppy), and Twyla Reimer (Remi + Gold).

Because we want to dive in deep and meet you exactly where you are, we’ll have two sessions to choose from this year: CIRCLE Weddings and CIRCLE Retail. Bring your challenges, dreams, and questions. We’ll tackle them one-by-one.

Feeling lost and unsure what to even ask? No worries. Listening to your thoughts, understanding where you’re coming from, and helping you formulate a plan that’s true to who you are is our strength. We can’t wait to chat flowers with you!

  • CIRCLE meets 2 hours per week for 8 weeks
  • CIRCLE is intentionally small with just 7 members in each session to ensure each CIRCLE member feels supported
  • One full scholarship will be awarded to each CIRCLE session

BONUS: Each CIRCLE member will receive a ONE YEAR membership to Bloom Trust Co. — a curated collection of floral resources you can trust. Current Bloom Trust Co. members get an additional 12 months added to their current membership.
