Hidden Gems: Meet Malana Olson of Malana Sophia Floral

Today we’d like to introduce you to Malana Olson.

Hi Malana, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I’ve always had a passion for being artistic and creating, my dream of being a florist started for me at a very young age actually.

My first job was working for a florist in my hometown, I was 15 at the time. She would have weddings on the weekends and a retail storefront during the week, she always brought me along to help with the weddings, and I absolutely adored it. It’s what excited me and gave me such fulfillment, and was definitely the avenue I wanted to pursue!

From then on, I knew that I wanted a career in the wedding floral industry, so I started up my business soon after my time at the local floral shop.

Something about handing the bride-to-be her lush bouquet on her big day and seeing the pure joy and happiness makes my heart smile each and every time.

I’ve been operating my own wedding floral business for three years and am approaching my most abundant season yet, and am feeling so very blessed!

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Something that was a bit of a struggle in the beginning stages was setting up my brand and really leaning into it and finding out what type of approach I wanted to take, some things I asked myself when considering my business:

How do I want my clients to feel?

What are the things that come to mind when thinking about my brand and business?

What are the types of emotions, colors, and style that are thought of?

This was one of my struggles in the earlier stages and definitely came together and unfolded in time.

We’ve been impressed with Malana Sophia Floral, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I am a Wedding Florist creating lush, romantic, and heavenly floral design throughout Minnesota and beyond

Communication and being in sync with my clients and their vision is so important to me, I want to be able to make your floral dreams come true!
