Welcome to 
Auburn Blooms

We’re here in Auburn, CA with Lisa, owner of Auburn Blooms Florist.  

   “I’ve been a floral designer since 1984, when my sister had a shop in Sacramento, and that’s where I started. It’s something that you love to do, you make peoples’ days.  I moved from the other end of town five years ago.  We’re in Old Town Auburn surrounded by great restaurants and shops.  We have candy, balloons, candles, gifts and flowers.
   “Yesterday I made centerpieces for the SPCA fundraiser.  I created a little puppy and a doghouse made completely out of dog bones. The grass was green chrysanthemums, and there was a little picket fence—it’s when you can be creative that makes being in flowers so fun.
   “We also have a great line of gifts.  Our candles come from Candles by Faith in Cool, CA.  All the jewelry, Gypsy Jewels, is created by my sister. We get our candy locally from Aunt Flo’s Chocolates as well as Capital Confections from Sacramento.
   “Because I’ve been in business for 35 years, most of my customers have followed me from store to store, and trust my style.  They just say what they like and I go for it.  We create something special for them instead of looking at a book.

   “Everybody is thrilled when they get flowers.  Even my husband actually buys flowers for me and that still always makes me smile.”

The Magic of Flowers and Plants
Flowers always say, "You're special!"

     There is nothing like the thrill of receiving flowers. You feel special: someone is thinking about you, wanting to lift your spirits and make your day!   
    Flowers touch all our senses, from visual vibrant colors to sweet fragrances.  These powerful elements evoke pleasant memories of past times.  Flowers are timeless, and bring those sweet memories to the present.
    Who isn’t thrilled by the brilliance of color, the richness of life in the garden!  We give plants and flowers  because we love the beauty of the outdoors.  Giving plants and flowers as gifts brings the garden indoors for us to enjoy.
     More to consider:
Flowers can be a gift for anyone.
From son to father, daughter to mom, friend to friend... tell someone they are special with flowers.
    Give flowers at unexpected times.
Giving flowers is a spontaneous act of kindness that will brighten any person’s day.
      Consider flowers as a thank you!  Acknowledge all that someone has done for you by giving them flowers.
     The bottom line: let someone know that you are thinking about them. Flowers always say, “I’m here for you!”

There is a whole world of flowers out there... 
get to know them! 

   Flowers come in a marvelous variety of shapes, sizes, and colors.  Try something new and interesting the next time you order.   By learning the flower choices, you can personalize your arrangements to suit your taste or that of your recipient.  For example, if your mom loves hydrangeas, you will know what to ask for. 

     Ordering from a florist is going to be much easier when you can tell them specifically what flowers you like. The guide that follows represents some of the more common flower choices available in flower shops.  Ask your florist for their expert opinion in picking your flowers.  Working closely with your florist will get you the best results!

Lisa Gives an Insider's Perspective

What are your tips for Sympathy flowers?

     “You just have to put yourself in their shoes and make it like it was your loved one that just passed away.  I always try to make something that is personal and honors the person.  You have to create something that you’re proud of in every design that you make.”

Any tips for romancing with flowers?

   “I would not do the typical red roses. Instead, I’d beat around the bushes and find out her favorite color.  Maybe find something like yellow gerbera daisies that she got as a kid, something that reminds her of fun happy times.  If you just take the time to figure out what her favorites are or something that has meaning to her, it’s going to be romantic.
   “Last Easter, I had a customer call me wanting the biggest possible Easter bunny made out of flowers.   I created an Easter bunny that was 3 feet tall with chrysanthemum feet and a body made out of carnations.  That was a special thing—when they have you do custom items and just leave it up to you to be artistic.
   “I love being a florist.  I think it’s a reflection of my personality.  It’s really a tough job being a florist, but in the end flowers tell people that you care about them, and that’s what I love.”
