Jessica Birmingham, Owner

Happy Day Plants has been a long time in the making for owner Jessica Birmingham. For years, Jessica studied and cared for many different varieties of household plants. It has always been her dream to open a shop where customers can purchase houseplants and learn about how to care for them for many years to come. 

 

After Jessica’s oldest daughter, Bailey, who happens to have Down Syndrome, graduated from high school, the Birmingham family began to work hard to support Bailey as she moved into a new exciting stage of life. However, it quickly became apparent that the opportunities for young adults like Bailey were few and far between. Jessica’s life-long love of plants paired with her desire to empower people with special needs, led her to launch Happy Day Plants. Throughout the summer of 2021, Jessica hosted various Happy Day Plant pop-up shops throughout Boulder County to test the waters. When a beautiful storefront on Main Street in Downtown Longmont became available, she knew right away that Happy Day Plants would have a retail home. 

For the past seven years, she along with her husband Mark and their four children, have enjoyed making Longmont their home. Though lately she's in the shop most days, Jessica enjoys hiking and camping with her family.
