Blessed Divine Creations Origins
In 2010, I (Paquita) started to create gift baskets for my daughter for Easter. She was three years old at the time and I had went to a department store to pick out a gift basket for her for Easter. I noticed that none of the baskets had any of toys or candy she really liked and the cost of the baskets were high and you only got a few toys and a couple of pieces of candy. So I decided that I would take that $20.00 that I was going to spend on her basket and I created my own Easter basket with all the toys and candies she liked. Soon after, friends and family took notice of her Easter baskets and begin to ask me to create baskets for them. I did it as a hobby for four years.
The company started as an idea that formed while preparing for my wedding in 2013. My mother and I had 2 months to plan my wedding and not a ton of money to do it. We are both very creative and we decided that we could do the wedding décor ourselves instead of renting equipment, buying flowers and other décor. We brought the tulle, the arch, and put the bouquets for the bridesmaid together using silk flower. It turned out beautifully. Our Bishop Eugene S Johnson of Madison Pentecostal Assembly encouraged us to think about turning our creativity into a business. He always told us that the skills that you acquire at church can be transferred into owning your business.
In December 2014, Blessed Divine Creations was created. We started out providing our services to our church for church councils, weddings, and receptions, then we eventually ventured out to doing vendor shows. We choose the name Blessed Divine Creations because we wanted to be a blessing to our customers and the meaning of the words combined aligns with our faith. We specialize in Customized gift baskets, Mason jar gifts, No sew fleece blankets, Hair accessories, Tutus, Fragrance body oils, Cinnamon roasted pecans and cashews, and Event Planning. Our motto is Gifts, Baskets, and More created just for you.
