About Us
“I began selling flowers at the Palm Springs Street Fair, enjoying being out of the house and creating a business at the same time. That was the beginning of Flowers Make My Day.” – Victoria Donahue

Victoria Donahue, Owner / Entrepreneur



After graduating high school and moving to San Diego I immersed myself in entrepreneurial ventures. My first was a vintage clothing business I purchased at the Leucadia flea market. From there I was able to combine my love for travel and buying and selling clothes. This took me around the world to Mexico, Central America, Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia and Bali. When I finished with my 10 years of travel, I settled down to have a family.

My entrepreneurial spirit still looming within me, I moved to a home on 25 acres and started growing flowers. I later started selling at the College of the Desert Street Fair as well.

I've always been a hard worker and trusted in life's direction, its ups and downs. I had faith and confidence in my abilities and divine guidance. I knew if I continued to work hard everything would be okay. That was 16 years ago.

I feel very fortunate to be able to make a living growing these outstanding beautiful protea and offering them for sale in a wide variety of arrangements.
