We had the good fortune of connecting with Fernanda Canamar and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Fernanda, how did you come up with the idea for your business?
Growing up my mom was so creative and seeing that I had that same gift of creating something out of nothing inspired me so much. What ended up being the cherry on top was floral class in high school it made me realize that I enjoyed creating arrangements and learning how to properly care for flowers. Something about making people happy with an arrangement made me realize that it was something I wanted to pursue.

What should our readers know about your business?
I would like them to know that at Fers Flower Arrangements we strive to make the customer happy and meet their needs the best we can. I allow my creativity to set in and try to create arrangements that not many have or have thought about. I want them to know I’m just like them starting up was not the easiest thing I had my self doubt my “what if’s” and being a mom of two and my husband having his own small business I felt like I encountered a lot more setbacks than usual. I would like the world to know if you set your mind to something you can do it weather it feels impossible or it takes longer than you expected.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my friend was visiting I would take them to Sweet Paris for breakfast, I love their waffles. There’s a spot in alief where I get all my snacks from named tropimix that I could not let my friend miss out on. La cruderia for some Micheladas. Momma’s tamales for some delicious tamales. The seismique for some cute pictures.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would love to thank my mom for being so creative and putting that seed of creativity in me since I was young. I would also like to thank my Husband for teaching me to go outside of my comfort zone and allowing me to understand I can achieve anything.
