Carlson’s parents ran a floral business in Watertown for 41 years. She said she grew up playing among the flowers in their greenhouse. “I went to a lot of floral conventions and markets as a child and learned a lot that way. It was fun and something I enjoyed doing.” She later attended Southeast Tech for Floral Culture and worked in different floral businesses around the state until opening Aberdeen Floral in October of 2016. Even with all of her experience in her field, she places a lot of importance on continued learning and adapting new styles in her work. “We are always looking to stay on top of new trends and focusing on continued education so we can keep changing and growing.” She also said the best part about running her business in Aberdeen is all the people she gets to interact with. “Aberdeen has great people in it. Starting this business, I have been blessed by a lot of fantastic clientele that have become friends and family.” //— Jenny Roth
