10 Questions with Monica Delgado

1. Introduction: What's your story?

Simple Florals is owned and operated by Monica Delgado.
Five years ago, I was about to tie the knot with my best friend, we had found the perfect venue, and then I came to a complete halt...
I couldn't find a florist who really captured my personality, and you know who I am....

me, as I truly am....

Anthroplogie loving, slightly eclectic, minimalist-want tobe me, to put it bluntly.

I remember sitting there and only being shown templates of things; I did not feel heard and felt that they did not capture my unique sense of style and vision. I was not satisfied with the results.

A bouquet that resembles a ball and is trimmed with glistening lace - please, no thanks.

I opened my own floral boutique, Simple Florals, and transformed myself into the florist I wished I had back in the day.
You will most likely find me riding my bike to the beach with my husband and two young children, Ayla and Juno, if I am not in the garden or flowering. Despite the fact that I do not practice Ashtanga yoga on a consistent basis, I make an effort to do so at least once a week. Either I'm on a Keto diet or I'm consuming every carbohydrate I can get my hands on. All I need is some quality time with my lifelong girlfriends, an IPA, and a dive bar, and I'm set.

When my first bride told me that I was the "Most Valuable Person" of the wedding, I knew that this was the career path for me.
