Welcome to 
Forever Yours Florist & Gifts

  
We’re here in Auburn, CA with Denise and Mark, owners of Forever Yours.  
     

     
[Mark]   “We’ve been here in our current location a little over two years now after moving from West Sacramento, where we had a shop since 1997.  We are a full service florist and also have a wide variety of unique gifts.  We like to think outside the box in our flowers and our gifts.  Here at Forever Yours we build things according to people’s budgets. If you have a lower budget that’s okay, it’ll still turn out beautifully.”
  
 

  ​  ​  
     
[Denise]   “Our shop also has a lot of vintage items, antiques, silk stems and arrangements. We have local people come in just to visit because they love the atmosphere-we love it.”
 
[Mark] “We still get some of our old customers who drive an hour and a half each way, just because they want our flowers and to see us.”
[Denise] “We do have vignettes-coordinated product lines.  One of my favorite product lines is Michelle Design Works, an incredible line of high end soaps and lotions.
 
[Mark] “We take pride in our work; you’re going to get your money’s worth here and then some.  We are a seasonal shop as well.  We go big on fall but Christmas is our biggie.  Every year we have an annual two day open house mid-November where we give away raffle prizes, and have hors d’oeuvres-just welcoming the community in to get a jump start on their holiday shopping. We turn this place into a winter wonderland!”
   
  
[Denise] “People drive miles to thank us personally and that is a tremendous reward.  For romance I think that Old Faithful is the way to go—red roses paired with chocolates.  We actually had somebody propose in our shop on Valentine’s Day one year.  The customer said, ‘I really love you guys, you’re great people, the shop’s awesome and I come here all the time.  Is there any way on Valentine’s Day I can propose to my girlfriend here?’  We had a metal arbor, a bistro set, lighted candles and spread out rose petals.  She said yes and they came full circle and we ended up doing their wedding.”

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!
  

Denise & Mark Give an Insider's Perspective:                   
 Forever Yours Florist & Gifts

  
What are your tips for Sympathy flowers?
  

   
   [Mark] “First and foremost you want to be comforting as best you can.  I love to incorporate personal items; if they were a golfer then we would add golf clubs.  I’ve done a lot of funeral pieces in the past, from fishing creels, duck decoys, tackle boxes, race cars, hats, etc.  Doing this brings a little more personality to the person’s flowers to remember them by.”
    
  

  Tell us about your clothing line.      

  
   [Denise] “We recently started delving into the clothing line; it’s been going quite well. We have shawls, skirts, mostly woman’s clothing.  A lot of people are genuinely surprised once they step foot in this place.”
 
     [Mark] “We’ve paired our clothing vignettes along with the antique furniture, and then we brought in hats as well as jewelry.  We also have bolga baskets, which are handwoven from Africa. 
  
   “We then have the plant world, with little birds, dragonflies, lizards-things in nice old fruit lugs from the ‘40s that we’ve turned over to create shelves.”
 
[Denise] “Our hand-made, one of a kind truffles are from Capital Confections in Sacramento.  They are big, rich, and split really well.”
  
  

     
Tell us about the “Mark’s Special.”
  ​
  
    

     
  [Mark] “The Mark’s Special started when we had a customer, who we named ‘$100-Bob.’  He would come into the shop and throw $100 down and say
 
‘I want a Mark’s Special.’  The Mark’s Special is: give me a budget and you let me run wild with it.  Let me do my thing and trust me, and I’ll take care of you.
   “There are tough days but there are also days of joy when you see somebody smile and you make their day-there’s no other feeling like that.”
