She specializes in fresh floral for all occasions including weddings, corporate events, baby showers, private gatherings, and more. Total innovation is the name of the game for Brandi and the Blucid brand as she is committed to providing every client with the most exquisite experience of their dreams!
Incorporated in 2012, Blucid started out as an event planning business and has grown by leaps and bounds recently adding a mobile florist service catering to the New Orleans areas residents. In 2017, Brandi designed a stunning and alluring floral piece for Creme of Nature at the Essence Music Festival that turned heads. This lead to a design opportunity for major companies such as Aveeno, Cantu, Carolʼs Daughter and the Celebrity Beauty Bungalow. The latter opportunities have provided a grand platform to continue expanding the brand.
The Blucid has not gone unnoticed in the press or community. In the past 2 years, its been featured in several magazine publications including: Thirty-Five under 35, Geaux Girl, and Gambit Weekly. Recently, Brandi launched a community event for teen girls in the New Orleans area called “Connecting with the Crown” where she hosts an empowerment talk and one-on-one tutorial on how to create a fresh floral crown. She also plays a huge role in the city through her community service and cultural influence as a member of Treme’ Sidewalk Steppers Social & Pleasure Club
“The love for flowers has been a part of me since growing up in a home with my grandma, Gloriadean who nurtured her garden daily. I started out as an event planner but recognized floral was my peace. It kept me focused on one thing and ways to utilize my artistic skills to create magic. I love to create masterpieces. Itʼs my happy place.
Prior to my amazing career, I was a teenage mother of two handsome boys that now assist Blucid Floral. My sons have been my strength and
motivation since they entered my life. Several years later, God blessed me with my daughter Milan who also preps all the supplies for projects. So the flowers installed in our large arrangements, nine out of ten are always processed by my kids before design. I strongly believe flowers have a unique way of evoking feelings and emotions; they are simply beautiful. They add drama, excitement and much more.
Flowers have created opportunity for my family and I beyond my understanding but one thing I know for sure-Itʼs all God!”-Brandi
Indeed, Brandi exemplifies the epitome of a true FUNK DIVA as she continues to provide a phenomenal impact in her industry and community!
