While living in Illinois, Anne's plan to open a shop of her own were set aside with the tragic passing of her husband, Steve. After moving back to her native West Michigan, Anne was finally able to bring her vision to life. Coming up with the store's name was the hardest part. Feeling as though she wouldn't have been able to do this without him, Anne wanted her new store to honor Steve in some way. By combining the nickname of their daughter Paige ("Sweet Pea"), and their favorite flower, the store would be called My Sweet Peony. The name also reflects a mix of the initials Steve and Paige Mohan. Paige works at My Sweet Peony, too, giving mother and daughter a special opportunity to share this adventure together.
My Sweet Peony opened in December 2015.
We want everyone to feel as though our space is your happy place, inspiring you and teaching you to express your own inner creativity.
