“(Weddings) have kind of been the main basis for what we’ve been doing, but we’ve also had a lot of interest in plants, so we’re trying to build this one as well,” Antal said. . “We are a full service florist. We do all the daily flowers and normal things like funerals and weddings and daily deliveries for birthdays, anniversaries and everything in between.
“In the shop we have a lot of gift items, cards and table things like cheese platters and fun things to set up a really fun table. We have a lot of vases and pots and of course all the plants too. “
As her business grows, Antal hopes to expand the wedding services she offers. While 2020 has been a difficult year for this with so many COVID-19 weddings postponed, runaways and smaller-scale weddings have helped fill the void for the business.
The pandemic has also delayed the store’s opening, with a grand opening initially scheduled for Mother’s Day – an event that is on hold indefinitely until conditions are safer, Antal said.
“But we decided it was time to get (the store) up and running,” Antal said. “We believe that people should have plants in the house to make them happy when they are at home all the time.
Variety will also be a critical point for the business.
“With the store, we just want to offer something different,” Antal said. “I want to bring some of the things I love, especially local flowers. I do (business with) a lot of local producers. And then the plants – they’ve become a big part of my life lately. I just wanted to be able to bring that to the community and do something that contributes downtown. “
