Scenes from the Flower Shop in Early August!

Well, it's $5 Flower Friday and today we have fresh sunflowers . Boy oh boy, they have been a huge hit with the phone starting to ring about 7:30 am with folks wanting to reserve some for the weekend. Did you know that you can receive a text every Friday morning telling you what the flower special is that day. Just text the word Friday to 555888 to be included. Sorry, no delivery, cash and carry only!  Lots of pretty summer blooms arrived today such as these daisies. Don't you just love daisies?  "They are such a friendly flowers, don't you think they are the friendliest flowers"- Trivia; do you know what movie that line is from?   In case you are not aware, these weekend we are having a plant event in the shop. Come anytime between 10 am and 2 pm with any plant material you have or buy some from us. We'll help you plant it, transplant it or design it! It's all about plants this weekend - August 4th.  Be sure to follow us on our Facebook page t

The Cycle of Life - Birth through Death

One of the challenges of any business is having people know what your business is about. For me, it becomes especially hard because we do the normal flower shop stuff, which in itself has so many facets, but then add balloon decor , candy and funeral flowers into the mix and it becomes many run on sentences instead of one clear concise description!! One minute you are getting balloons out the door for a festive affair and then next you are creating a funeral spray that includes a symbol meaningful to the family. Anyway, that's pretty much what I love about my business, even if it does make it hard to describe. My husband is fond of telling people the flower business is about everything from the craddle to the grave and it really is true. New Baby, Birthdays , Proms, Graduation, Congratulations, Weddings, Get Well, Sympathy and Funerals . Our product touches people, makes them happy, and even comforts them. From joy to sorrow and back to joy again. The cycle of life...
