When it comes to Hudson Floral Couture, people have asked me several times about the name of the business. Where does the name Hudson come from? What is the meaning behind the name? Is there any particular significance to the business?
When it came to establishing Hudson Floral Couture, the values of the business were decided long before the name was picked. I knew I wanted a business that gave back to the community, provided quality service, remained loyal to its customers and brought joy into people’s daily lives. These were the exact same values that brought me to the name Hudson.
When I was a little girl, my sister and I begged for a dog! We promised to feed it, walk it, love it unconditionally, and play with it. That’s when a gorgeous Weimaraner dog came into our lives. We named him Hudson.
Hudson charmed us with his shimmering steel and sleek coat, floppy ears and dopey face. We also discovered he was an extremely skittish and a highly neurotic dog. I remember his more dominant qualities were his loyalty to us and his gentle nature and ability to put a smile on our faces every day. It is these exact qualities that I wanted to translate into Hudson Floral Couture. Through our flowers, we strive to stay loyal to our customers, put quality back into flowers and bring smiles to people’s faces every day.
When Hudson left our family, his name still remained forever. We were always referred to as the “Hudson Clan”, or the “Hudson Household”. To this day, that beautiful Weimaraner’s spirit remains in our daily lives. I want Hudson Floral Couture to do the same thing and stay as people’s florist of choice because of our values and qualities.
The business has so much more meaning because of that special dog. Hudson lives on in every flower we put into our arrangements. In a way, he still makes our customers smile when they receive a Hudson Daily Bloom. He is a constant reminder to me of Hudson Floral Couture’s values.
What was one little girls wish of owning a dog, is now a young woman’s dream of having a successful flower business.
