TULSA, Okla — Mother’s Day is a busy time for florists. The demand for this iconic Mother’s Day gift is up, especially a year after many local florists took a hit during the pandemic.
One local florist launched her dream business in the middle of the pandemic and now it’s blooming.
Chelsea Legrange is a local florist and owner of Gas Petal Flower Truck.
“I get to be very creative in pulling something together that brings people joy and I get to do that in times of celebration and in times of sorrow,” she said.
She travels all across Tulsa in Gretel, her 1970 Volkswagen single cab bus, spreading with her flower bundles, and this year’s Mother’s Day was no exception.
“It’s still just so joyful just to be part of everyone’s mother’s day,”Legrange said.
In 2020 when the pandemic hit, the mother of two used part of a severance package offered by her former employer to get her business rolling.
Legrange took a leap of faith and launched the floral business she’d always dreamed about.
