Meet Jenn

Hi, I’m Jenn.

I am inspired by beauty.  And fortunately for me, beauty is all around us.  It’s in a clear, cloudless sky and a brand new baby’s smell.  And it’s in the embrace of family and friends.  I have the best job in the world.  Every day, I help people experience the beauty that life has to offer.

I guess I had no choice in the matter.  As a little girl I remember enjoying meals at beautifully set tables adorned with fresh cut flowers, authentic German food and classical music playing in the background. During the holidays, my mother would spend countless hours ironing linens, setting the table with the  “special china”, and slaving over the stove… all in an effort to make her family feel loved and appreciated. I learned early on that it is the little details in life that mean the most.

These are the reasons why I opened Modern Day in 2006.  We began as a small retail floral shop in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids.  Although our roots are in floral design (pun intended), we know that there’s more to your event  than a beautiful floral arrangement.  It’s all of the little details which, when added up, give the greatest gift you can give your guests – the beauty that is you!

It has now been over a decade since I first opened Modern Day’s doors, and it’s simply incredible to think how far we’ve come. We have two locations to serve you, including our luxury event design boutique in the historic Amway Grand Plaza Hotel. It is such an overwhelmingly satisfying feeling to offer a place where people can feel the love and passion that went into the design of their floral arrangement or special event, and in turn see that spirit carry over into their lives.
