Alisha Thomas began arranging her own boards for friends and family in 2018. They often encouraged her to sell them to the public, but she didn’t think there’d be much interest. Finally, after some persuasion, an Instagram poll and a desire for a creative outlet, she began taking custom orders in 2022.
Today, Betty Bloom’s has become much more than arranging photo-worthy boards. It’s our passion to help clients create memories, warm spaces and good conversation, all while enjoying unique and delicious ingredients.
We prep and assemble all orders in a state-inspected commercial kitchen and are fully insured.
The name Betty Bloom’s was inspired by Alisha’s late grandmother, Betty Jane Lambert: Master of feeding a crowd and flower gardening extraordinaire.
“Some of my fondest childhood memories were created around the dinner table. I loved helping and watching my Mamaw prepare for holiday gatherings or Sunday lunch. I think she’s who I get my love of hosting from. Everyone who left her home, left feeling loved and cared for. That’s exactly how I want our clients to feel after every interaction they have with Betty Bloom’s.”– Alisha Thomas, Founder/Owner of Betty Bloom’s, LLC
Alisha was born and raised in the mountains of Western North Carolina. She currently resides in Sylva, NC with her husband, Phil, and their two dogs, Doc Watson and June Carter.
Chicken-n-dumplins, ice cream and cereal are her three main food groups. She has a great love for reading, 90s music, British television and cool mornings spent on the front porch with a hot cup of coffee.
