About Us



Bouquets by Carolyn (BBC), is the first African American Woman Owned Floral Business in Saint Paul, Minnesota. BBC was established in 1990, opening the doors of her first location on Grand Avenue in St. Paul.

When BBC started the specialty was in artificial floral design and arranging only. Within the year she expanded to fresh flowers and live plants, the amount and type of merchandise that was sold as well as the type of arrangements based on the demands and needs of the community. This has allowed her business to grow into other areas.

Funeral Homes / Chapels started recommending BBC to families during the loss of their loved ones, some of these businesses also carried her service catalogs to be reviewed by their clients at their locations. I have developed a rapport with many of the Churches in the community and supply them with their floral needs ranging from Christenings, Weddings, Funerals and Sunday services.

We carry a large selection of books for Weddings in which Brides can choose either artificial or fresh flower bouquets for the wedding parties, décor for the church and/or for the reception location for their special days. We take special pride in helping brides find the perfect compliment for Wedding Invitation ,Church Program, Aisle Runner, Unity Candle, Napkins and Thank you cards, just to name a few.

In 1997, I became a member of The Minnesota Minority Suppliers Development Council (MMSDC) an affiliate of MEDA, an organization designed to provide assistance to businesses owned and managed by minorities. I was able to secure corporate accounts with Xcel Energy, Hamline University, General Mills, Wells Fargo, the NAACP ( Martin Luther King Breakfast) the Black Chamber Of Commerce, Keystone Computer Solutions Inc. and The Penumbra Theatre. I have an established user-friendly web site ( that is there for those that want to review our products or place an order for either local or out of state delivery.

With God’s Blessings I hope to continue my commitment of excellence and quality personalized service to both individual customers and corporate customers.
