Every February 28th has been designated as Floral Design Day. It's a day to recognize floral artistry and design as well as promote floral design education. Floral designers have a unique job of capturing certain emotions and enhancing special occasions and events with natural beauty. They become part of so many people's holiday memories and even bigger events like weddings. Floral designers even help make birthdays, births, anniversaries, dances, and graduations more special with floral decor. And, we believe that we have the best floral designers in town. The awards, accolades, and reviews we receive also prove that. We appreciate everything they do for our flower shops and our customers.

Valentine's Day is on Wednesday, February 14th. That gives you just a couple days to finish up your gift shopping for that special someone. We know you've been busy but also realize you want to give something that shows your love and affection for that sweetheart in your life. Our answer is our Ecuadorian roses. First, roses already top the list of the most treasured Valentine's Day gifts out there. That's because they are so beautiful and capture the meaning of love. Second, our Ecuadorian roses are the best in the world because of the extraordinary climate there. It makes the roses grow bigger with larger and more petals. That means they will last even longer than other roses. Just because they last longer and are more beautiful than other roses doesn't mean you pay a fortune for them. No, we understand and respect budgets and give you the most for your money. You can also select from any quantity that suits what you are looking for. That means you can buy one in a bud vase or half a dozen as a bouquet. Or, you can buy them by the dozens. While we've been incredibly busy, there are still roses left. However, you must order and place your order because colors and quantities are running low. With those roses, you can create a larger Valentine's Day flower arrangement with other beautiful blooms. You can choose the quantity, color, and flower type. Additionally, you can add on other special gifts like Valentine's Day balloons, chocolates, and sweet stuffed animals. We are here to take your order in our flower shop, by phone, or through our online order form found on our website. Deliveries include local and national addresses.
