Meet Deanne of Nina's Flowers


Welcome to 
Nina's Flowers

   Deanne has been in the flower business all her life.  “I started designing flowers when I was seventeen… that’s all I’ve ever done.  My grandmother was a florist in Hertford, Texas.  In the summers I always got sent off to grandma’s for a couple of weeks.  I went to work with her… it was so fun!  I told her, that when I grow up, I’m going to own and run my own flower shop, and you can come and work for me!
“When I turned seventeen, I got a job as a driver, a delivery girl for a flower shop in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  I bought Nina’s florist twenty years ago from Nina and Fred, and I worked for them for six years before I bought the shop.  I’ve been coming to work at this very shop for twenty-six years.” 

“I love the customers.  We have a relationship with so many of our customers… they are like family.  I like getting to know new customers as well.   As a florist I like being able to express the feelings of my customers with flowers.  There are all kinds of feelings and emotions that people are trying to convey.  The best time to give flowers is when they are least expecting it.  Don’t wait until the cliché anniversary, Valentine’s day, birthday.  Just for no reason at all… that’s the best time to give flowers.  Have them be completely surprised!

   “Just recently we had a baby shower, for a customer that chose for her theme, Peter Rabbit.  She brought in a bunch of containers that she had bought on clearance after Easter.  So there were all these containers that had bunny rabbits and carrots, and little flowers.  She told us, ‘make it all look like Peter Rabbit!’  So, we went to the flower market, and purchased Kale (looks like cabbage), and wildflowers, and grassy materials, and pastel flowers.  We were able to create beautiful  floral and fauna that looked just like Peter Rabbit in a cabbage patch!   It turned out adorable!  When I delivered them, she was so thrilled she hugged me three times.”

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!

From Peter Rabbit to Crocodiles, Nina’s Makes It Happen:

“We had a birthday, where the woman wanted to give her son a crocodile made of flowers, to put on his cake.  So we cut out of Styrofoam the shape of a crocodile, with his mouth open, his long tail, and we covered it completely in little green Kermit mums.  It was the cutest little crocodile you ever saw, one foot tall and two feet wide!”
