Meet the Owners ~ Michael & Lori Barrett ~ In January of 2010 my husband and I took ownership of the shop. As a florist with a strong passion for floral design, i continue learning, reading, and attending many classes to make my way to expert! I enjoy working with the flowers, the people, the ladies here, and of course my loving husband.

Occasionally, substitutions may be necessary to create your bouquet due to the availability of certain flowers. Care is taken to maintain the style, theme and color scheme of the arrangement, using flowers of equal value. Additionally, the substitution of certain keepsake items may be necessary due to increased demand, especially during major holidays. In single-flower arrangements, such as an all rose bouquet, or orchids, we will make every attempt to match the flower type, but may substitute with another color.
