the CU flower house CO-OP is a unique space where event industry professionals and small business owners can meet, greet, consult, sell, and share a warm and welcoming space that fits their individual business needs.

the CU flower house is home to A. Hunt Design flower shop, event rentals, and a small private dining space. The open floor plan of the 2900 square foot space features dark wood floors, floor to ceiling windows spanning the storefront, 15 foot ceilings, consultation nooks, couches, lounge chairs, a photoshoot wall, rugs, and plenty of shelving for merchandise.

Mary Enright, founder/owner of Hunny Bunny Bakes, is a people-person.

A strong believer in the beauty of the human experience, Enright appreciates the importance of celebrating both life's biggest and smallest moments. She knows that behind every order that comes through her bakery there is a story and a feeling, and she is honored to be a part of it.

Enright founded Hunny Bunny Bakes almost completely by accident, though it has since grown into a business that holds the entirety of her heart and soul. Five years ago, Enright offered to make decorated sugar cookies for a friend's baby shower, posted a photo of the completed cookies on social media, and hasn't had a break in requests since.

A big fan of the Pippi Longstocking philosophy of "I have never tried that before so I think I should definitely be able to do it", Enright has never shied away from unique clients requests, and has quickly made a name for herself as an artist willing to take on just about any subject (Stormtroopers fighting a dinosaur, wedding favors featuring the periodic table, or 'unicorn mermaid kitty', anyone?).

Known for her highly-detailed sugar cookies, intensely popular cake jars, and beautiful, hand-crafted cakes, Enright is able to cater her work to fit any occasion.

Enright currently lives outside of Tuscola in the rural community of Chicken Bristle. She enjoys spending time with her husband and two children, listening to true-crime podcasts, and drinking far too much Diet Dr. Pepper.

My name is Jill - I am a mama of two who has a creative passion. It started with an interest and idea of creating small batch laser cut/engraved items and decor. Then I thought, maybe others in and around the local community would be interested in the same!

Every idea starts with something that I wanted for my home or my friends and I am always accepting custom requests.

I hope you enjoy all we have to offer, and share the experience with others.

Hi, I'm Tara Nickole and I own and operate Luxe Balloons & Backdrops by T. Nickole. I'll be your first point of contact and the one who designs and installs your balloon decor!

I started Luxe Balloons & Backdrops in January 2020, at the start of the pandemic because I’m a firm believer that, no matter what, there is always a reason to celebrate! Balloons bring joy, command attention, and turn any gathering into a party that pops.

Working with balloons has allowed me to channel my creativity, mix in my passion for parties, and deliver happiness to you!
