We are so honored and humbled to be awarded such a tremendous award. A big thank you goes out to our staff – we couldn’t do it without their hard work and dedication. Each and every one of our staff made an impact on our business receiving this award. From the floral designers, to the customer service staff to our delivery drivers. Everyone makes an impact. Of course, thank you to our customers for trusting us with the flower moments in your life both happy and sad.
