They each grew up in foreign lands that offered very different cultures than we experience here in the states. Though different foreign lands from each other, one thing definitely remained the same for both. . .the appreciation of daily fresh flowers. Here in America we typically think of flowers for special occasions, but not these two. Flowers are a way of life. They are something that can be appreciated everyday and they have several people that have adopted this philosophy and truly do stop by Sue and Gloria’s local floral shop for their daily dose of fresh cut flowers.
The week prior to meeting up with these two I randomly purchased fresh flowers for our own home and when I heard them explain their thoughts on a daily bouquet of flowers, I knew exactly what they were talking about. Every time I glanced at the beautiful array of fresh living color that stood proudly on our kitchen table I smiled. I would randomly stop over the table to breathe in the strong fragrance and each time it truly made me happier. I have no PhD, but I think it just might be safe to say that flowers can increase your health, okay well at least your well being which can contribute to better health, right? Either way, I personally vow to forgo my previous thought that flowers are for special occasions and make flowers become a more regular way of life.
For your own daily dose of fresh cut flowers you must stop by and visit Sue and Gloria at Making Arrangements. This adorable little floral shop is nestled in the heart of St. Elmo and as you will see in the following pictures, saying the shop has character is a large understatement. No detail was overlooked in the shops decor. Sue and Gloria have been dear friends for over 20 years and are the easiest people to fall in love with. Not only will their flowers win you over, but these two are a fabulous find in and of themselves. Oh and Making Arrangements is most definitely not opposed to taking care of your special occasion florals as well. They are full service can most definitely create the most divine bouquet or arrangement of any kind so daily or special occasion be sure to stop by and tell them hello.
