Two South Jersey business owners bond over flowers to help each other survive during COVID-19.

Two South Jersey business owners are bonding over floral arrangements to help each other survive during COVID-19.

Floral Designer Jennifer Reed of Jennifer Designs specializes in weddings and events and is an avid Pennsylvania Horticulture Society volunteer.

With the event industry hit hard by COVID-19, Reed went back to her motto "always play with your flowers."

Now, she teaches flower workshops bringing her love of flowers to everyone else. She hosts classes in-person or virtually and gave Karen Rogers an online workshop with the "Flower Sunglasses" craft a try.

Reed is all about building her business while lifting up other female entrepreneurs.

She hosts her classes at Thomas & Main in Mullica Hill.

Owner Colleen Keaveney pitches in with Reed's parties and uses her flowers for her own business.

Her boutique gift shop has a beach house vibe, with six different rooms, each with a different theme.

It is all inspired by her father, who passed away last year. Colleen is now shipping items across the country, partly thanks to her Instagram-Live parties she calls happy hour.
