Owning a floral boutique has been a lifelong dream for Tonette Kinsler – a dream which began to bloom in March of 2023 as she found comfort in crafting beautiful floral arrangements to honor the memory of her late mother. Naughty Petals Daytona Beach Florist Cash Bouquet at Ripple Coworking

At the time, the flowers for her mother brought Tonette peace and joy; but now, a year later, it is Tonette who is bringing joy to her customers through her one-of-a-kind creations. Each time she hands over a glittering bundle of colored roses, adorned with gold-foil accents or delicately folded dollar bills, into the hands of a smiling client, Tonette is reminded why she loves what she does.

Having an office rental at Ripple has given Tonette a professional space to meet her customers and operate her budding business (pun intended). Ripple is pleased to have a unique, woman-owned small business like Naughty Petals among it’s diverse roster of members.

Date Night Ideas for the Busy Professional

Keeping the spark alive can be challenging when you’re working hard at your success. These simple but unique date night ideas are sure to remind your partner that they’re truly your top priority.


There’s always something cool going on in the sky – meteor showers, full moons or rocket launches! Florida is a great place for skygazing due to the relatively low amount of light pollution over the ocean, making for great visibility into the cosmos!

So check the weather, pack a picnic, grab a couple of cozy blankets, charge your speaker, and head to the beach for a few hours on a Friday night with your sweetie.

Deep, intimate conversations are bound to be had – and you will likely get lucky and spot a shooting star to make a special wish!

Scavenger Hunt

Pick a color, choose a store, set a budget and go explore! Fill a bag with items for your partner – all in the theme of the chosen color. Choose things you know they will like, or things that are sure to get a couple of laughs! Anything is fair game – knick-knacks, snacks, clothing or toys!

Bring your treasures home and take turns unpacking the goodies and treats you picked out, and really appreciate how well you know one another! Then spend the rest of the night indulging in the treats with gratitude.
