Welcome to 
Garaventas Flowers

We’re here in Napa, CA with Cheryl (on left) and Gina (right) of Garaventa’s Florist    
   ​              

  
[Gina] “My parents have owned this shop for 46 years now.  Cheryl, the shop manager, has been here the longest, 36 years.  I’ve been here for 17 years.  My parents Gary and Pattie are well known in the valley.”
 
[Cheryl] “We do everything.  We try to keep a nice selection of vases, plants, flowers, planters, etc.  We stock tropicals, hydrangeas, roses, calla lilies, orchids, antheriums and others.” 
 
[Gina] “I was going to junior college, not knowing what I wanted to do with my life, when my dad said, ‘Why don’t you try the flower shop?’ and I said ‘Okay, why not.’  That’s when it all began for me.
 
   “I love flowers, doing weddings, and helping people.  On any weekend we may have about six weddings booked.  I like seeing the bride’s reaction when we deliver everything and seeing  how happy she is.”
 
[Cheryl] “Napa is a pretty place to get married.  We just did this incredible wedding up in Villagio in Yountville.  The bride just picked out everything.  ‘Midnight Summer Dream’ was her theme.”

   ​  

[Gina] “The wedding had strings of crystal beading, and at the bottom of the beading was this glass ball that had a flower in each one.  There were about twelve of these glass balls and each had a rose, orchid, and other flowers inside.  There were petals everywhere.  And the reception had candle lights.  Their flowers were roses and orchids and the colors were lavenders, purples, and a little bit of blue.  Another quirky thing they did was have us blow up 200 dove shaped balloons. After they got married they had themselves and all the guests huddle into this heart shaped tulle netting on the lawn. We passed out balloons to everybody and the videographer had a drone up in the sky to record the event.”​

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!
  

Cheryl & Gina Give An Insider's Perspective  
         Garaventas Flowers

[On Romance]

[Cheryl]“Sometimes guys come in and have really good ideas, and other times it’s like ‘oh my gosh.’  We try to make suggestions and not really shoot them down.”
 
[Gina] “I think the biggest thing is to surprise your loved one not just on holidays but any day of the week, especially when they’re least expecting it.  Try to order her favorite flower or colors.  If you don’t know we can help you choose.”
 
[Cheryl] “We have this one customer who has been with us for about ten years, and every Monday morning he sends his girlfriend a rose with a little personal note.  They ended up getting married this summer.  They sent us a picture of this huge basket in her entryway.  She has kept every single rose so it’s just a big basket of potpourri and a little basket next to it with all the notes.”

 
  
[On Sympathy]

[Cheryl] “We always strive to include a personal touch in our tribute flowers.  It’s really important to show the passions of the individual being remembered.  We had one that was for a vineyard farmer who had a favorite old truck which we recreated with flowers-the family just absolutely loved it.  It was a green and white truck created in carnations.”
 
[Gina] “Sympathy flowers not only are a remembrance of the person that passed away, but also are an important source of comfort to the family and friends gathered.  Flowers lighten the occasion and offer a sense of hope at a sad time.”
