Morningside Florist

Welcome to 

We’re here in Rancho Cordova, CA with Brandon, Head Designer for Morningside Florist.  

   “I’ve been in the floral industry my whole life.  I grew up with the old school rules and learned how to do things the hard way and now I’m mixing things up with new ideas.
   “I’m naturally an artist.  I’ve found an avenue where I can express my art and make people happy at the same time.  If you ask any florist, we’re not here for the money, we’re here because we love what we do.  Its very rewarding being a part of somebody’s special day, from births to weddings.  In all aspects of life, flowers are needed.
   “Morningside is coming up on its 30 year anniversary, same location, family owned and operated.  We’ve come a long way: we used to service exclusively corporate business, now we’ve expanded into weddings, and everyday arrangements.  
     “Most people are used to your traditional bouquet.  We do more unique designs, what we call the ‘Morningside style’.  We take traditional spring flowers and mix them with exotics.  We combine unique combinations of flowers and make them look great together.                      
   “Some examples of flowers I would use are liatris, dendrobium orchids, roses, Asiatic lilies, dahlias, and some dianthus.   It’s a compact nontraditional design style.  For colors I go with as few as two or so contrasting colors that come out bright and vivid or go with as many colors as possible.
   “We display handmade cards by local artists.  They are popular and only $5 each.  We have a photographer, a crafter and a painter who contribute to our card line.
   “Rose and George, the owners of Morningside Florist, have always had a vision of a floral shop in the business park integrated with the community. Their family has been heavily involved in this business throughout the years. They have been doing this for 30 years, and are wonderful people who just love the floral business.”

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!

Brandon Gives Insider Flower Tips                   
 Morningside Florist

   “We have worked very hard to merge technology with our flower shop.   We use Facebook, Yelp, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter—online marketing and social media.  We are very in tune with today’s brides and they want to meet you before they come to your shop.  If you have a strong social media presence people feel like they know you before they come shopping. They see my picture, read about me, and they feel like they can trust me because I’m a normal guy.  I’m here to make someone’s day special.
   “The generation of brides getting married now are in my age group.   I’m very familiar with current trends and have young fresh ideas.  A bride should do her research before going into a flower shop.  She should have an idea of her color scheme and budget.  A Pinterest page is important to show your florist.  Florists are visual people and we need to see exactly what you’re going for.
    “Recently we did a wedding in Coloma that used wildflowers in a kind of shabby chic style.  We used wine barrel rings and we hung them from a tree, and hung flowers from it.  The bride’s mom called me the next day telling me how the flower chandelier made her day.
    “I’ve watched Morningside grow over the years.  Customers walk in and know our names and faces.  It’s wonderful to have customers that have been here from the very beginning.  We’ve grown in customer base as well as in more creative designs.  I design, clean flowers, deliver-you gotta be able to do everything when you’re in a flower shop.”
