The search for the perfect bouquet for that special someone seems to finally be over with the arrival of Time for Flowers, a local flower shop that has a creative spin to their bouquets.
Opening in early April, Time for Flowers’ specialty comes into play with their innovative flower bar, as Designer Theresa Pickler explained.
“One of the things that makes us extremely unique is we have a build your own flower bar, customers come in a pick their flowers and greens either by hand or we will put it together for them while they watch,” Pickler said.
With the ability to create a completely custom bouquet, picking out someone’s favorites has never been easier, an easy way to score some major “brownie points,” as assistant designer Jessica Golab said.
With a sea of popular flowers to choose from, the options can almost be overwhelming. Fear not, both Golab and Pickler assured that they help give recommendations of great complimentary flowers and other aspects to make your bouquet just the way you want it.
“I was picking out a bouquet to buy my girlfriend for her birthday, so I stopped in here because it was the the closest florist around here,” Branson Salyer, a senior at Michigan State University said. “The selection was unbelievable and I was able to pick out a ton of things she liked.”
Salyer continued to elaborate on his experience, pointing out the convenience of having a variety of colors for different floral needs.
“The business has been very well received in the area, people are really excited to have us here,” Pickler said.
More than just flowers will be offered soon for the local business, as a few new ideas are in the works.
“We are in the process of setting up classes, doing parties, and we are beginning to coordinate with schools to try and get kids in here to be hands on with flowers in a career day of sorts,” Pickler said.
As an already budding business that is well received in it’s area, Time for Flowers is going above and beyond to become involved with their community.
In addition to going into the store and creating your bouquet, Time for Flowers delivers up to 20 miles away, and farther for special events. They will also provide any floral needs for weddings, funerals, and other special events.
It is located at the corner of Jolly and Okemos roads, 3490 Okemos Rd. Time for Flowers can be reached at (517) 657-7150 and they are on the web at www.timeforflowers.net.
