Lesley Frascogna is the creative force + owner behind Tulip, a brand that encompasses floral services, workshops + most recently a brick + mortar shop. Lesley fell in love with flowers at a young age while working catering jobs throughout Chicago + the North Shore.In her 20s she put that love to the test as she became the proud owner of her first floral boutique, Roscoe Blooms in Chicago, IL.
A chance meeting on a dog beach led her to her now-husband, a Mississippi native + the reason Lesley made the move to Jackson. Shortly after their wedding in 2008, she started Tulip - working out of a design studio + happily taking on weddings + events. Most recently, she led Tulip into the retail frontier by moving her business into a new storefront property in The Town of Livingston in Flora, MS. She’s beyond thrilled to once again have a shop of her own; one that allows her to create beautiful things + a meaningful community.
When she’s not creating artistic floral + buying for her shop, she’s spending time with her other passions: her husband Marty, kids Frank + Birdie, + dog-kids Fran and Lucy.
After having two kids + running a creative business, Lesley found it difficult to connect with other like-minded women in the same field. She wanted to create a community of creative business owners who understood the difficult dynamic of motherhood + business owner. Nourish was created out of love + compassion for busy “mamapreneurs” who are trying to find a work/life balance + connect with other industry mamas.
