Meet Heena ~ our longest running employee

It's hard to believe but Miss Heena has been working at MMF for over 15 years! Yikes, where has the time gone. Let's find out a little more about this hard working woman! MMF: You have a cute British accent. Where are you from? Heena:   Although I was born in Nairobi, Kenya but then I moved to London when I was 4 years old - hence the British Accent. MMF: When did you move to the United States and why? Heena: I came here in 1993 and moved with my husband! MMF: You have 2 beautiful children; a girl who's in her last year of college and son who just started his second year (both Rutgers - go Scarlet Knights). What is your favorite part about having two kids in college. Heena: I'm love having a bit more time for myself but I miss then a lot. It's a bit easier to just cook for myself and my husband. I'm proud of the adults they are becoming. MMF: What's your favorite part about working in the Flower Shop? Heena: I love everything. I love the flow

Meet Our Newest Designer Alicia!

If you ask me what is one of the most stressful parts about running my business, it would be finding talented, hard working staff with a can do attitude. Honestly, we have been searching for someone for more than 2 years and then along comes Alicia who not only is the best fit but goes above and beyond what we could have hoped for.  MMF: Alicia, we're so happy to have you join us at Monday Morning Flowers (MMF). Tell us how you became interested in the flower business! Alicia: My career started as a cashier at a local supermarket but the floral manager asked me to help out in that department one Mother's Day and the rest is history. That was 3 years ago.  MMF: What have you been doing to further your design skills? Alicia:   I'm currently attending Buck's County Community College and taking classes in their AIFD (American Institute of Floral Design) Floral Design Certification Program. I've already taken basic and intermediate design classes along with

Fresh Floral Arrivals ~

As the flower buyer I find this time of year a real challenge. Will my customers want Fall flowers or will they begin to want Winter and Christmas designs? That's hard to say but the truth is they will want access to both options and so that's what we order in and fill our website with. The video below is from a Facebook Live post I did today to show some of our fresh floral arrivals. Which flower is your favorite?

Balloon Bouquets ~ a fun gift giving choice

I've been in the flower and balloon business so long I sometimes forget how receiving one of our offerings can make someone feel. Just this morning I took an order from a woman who wanted to send a dear friend a big bouquet of Get Well and Thinking of You Balloons . Get Well Balloon Bouquet  She told me the story about how she felt when she received balloons when her son was born. She said she loved getting flowers but the balloons were so fun and festive and made her happy. I mentioned it was ironic that she and I were having this conversation because we are in the middle of a huge project of expanding our balloon bouquet offerings on our website. I guess it'a all about the timing. Here are a few new bouquets that just went live today!!

Feelin' the Fall

No we are not inviting you to come in to the shop and take a tumble!! Believe it or not, we have started to display our fall products for the season.  Halloween, Thanksgiving and general fall product have started to arrive and at the risk of tooting our own horn, we really love everything we have brought in for the season. Apparently, owls are very popular right now so aren't they mugs adorable?   Also, loving the thanksgiving platters, pitchers mugs and more. Giving thanks was never so much fun. These make great gifts too. :) Be sure to check out our facebook page as we will be showcasing all our fall arrivals there as they are displayed. www.facebook.com/localflorist
