Louisiana Startup Something Borrowed Blooms Raises $1.5 Million

Something Borrowed Blooms, a Louisiana-based business that rents out premium artificial flowers for weddings and special events, has closed a $1.5 million funding round led by Callais Capital. 

The funding will go towards expanding the company’s square footage in Lafayette as well as expanding its product offerings and technology solutions to its customers. 

Founders and cousins Lauren Bercier and Laken Swan experienced 35% growth in 2020 and now service roughly 700 weddings per month. 

“We founded Something Borrowed Blooms on the foundation of cost savings, but immediately saw a need to modernize the industry by offering a stress-free and transparent e-commerce solution for wedding flowers,” shared Bercier. 

“Lauren and Laken have carved out a unique niche within the wedding market, laying groundwork for continued expansive growth,” said Hal Callais, Managing Partner and CIO of Callais Capital. “They pair on-trend aesthetically appealing products with a convenient user experience, to compliment a couple’s vision without compromising or exceeding their budget.”
