Welcome to
 Rose Florist

   We’re here in Fairfield, CA with Juanita, owner of Rose Florist.  

  
   “We are very large for a flower shop- my mother and father-in-law had this built.  We have been here since 1976 so we must be doing something right!  My husband and I own and run the shop.  My husband helps around the shop and does all the deliveries.  I do the bookwork, designing-I’m the master of none and do a lot of everything.

     “Working in the floral industry is beautiful, but it’s a lot of work.  We do work around the clock sometimes but we enjoy it.  We pretty much grew up with this.  When I married my husband his parents already owned a flower shop, so this is pretty much all we know and we are very happy to have a successful business.  I have very dedicated staff. Paula has been here since 1979, Heather has been here since 1992, and Pattie has been here since 2005.
    
      
   “I love stargazer lilies, freesia, and roses.  Red is not particularly my color—I like all the new colors they’ve come up with.  There’s cherry brandy, deep water; there’s just about as many colors as you could think.  It’s the same with florists—there’s just as many designs as there are florists, because everybody is different.
     
    “People come in and pick a picture of an arrangement, and I tell them: you have to give us a bit of leeway and not always go by ‘paint-by-the-numbers.’  Let the florist do the designing, let them create for you.  We ask questions, and from that we can tell if you want high style or old fashioned-there’s a lot to it.
      
  
  
   “We have customers that have faithfully come in for years and years.  We have a gentlemen who calls us up to three times a month and says, ‘this is what I want, this is what I need, do it.’   And every time we do he always says the same thing, ‘I knew you could do it, and that’s why I tell everybody to come to you.’  He gets flowers for sympathy, birthdays, and anniversaries.
 
   “We have a lady who every year at the beginning of school sends bud vases to each of her grandkids.  So it goes: flowers for all their birthdays.  Before you know it they’re in high school with proms and corsages. As they get older and get married they start a new generation and on it goes. 
 
   “Flowers are there for every occasion; when you’re happy, just because, thank you—there are endless reasons why people send flowers.”

A Look Inside Rose Florist

      
   Let Rose Florist create a personal floral design that reflects exactly what you want to say.  Whether it be a sentiment of love, condolence or encouragement, there is an arrangement out there for everyone.  Flowers are also an excellent way to beautify your home. One person may prefer a contemporary tropical arrangement while another loves the tradition of a dozen roses.  Whatever your preference, Rose Florist is there to accommodate you.
      
 

Yes, We Have Teddy Bears! 

      
   “Because we are so close to the air base we have a large demand for American Hero Bears.  We stock  every one of them.  We have Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, and they all play their military branch songs.  We also have bears for firemen and policemen.  In addition we have a huge line of Betty Boop, from plush to all her little figurines, and even wine glasses. We also stock Wizard of Oz-that’s always been a good gift.”
      
 

  
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!
  

Juanita Gives an Insider's Perspective                  
               Rose Florist

  
   “Everybody associates red roses as love, and that probably will always be.  Instead of just getting a dozen red roses, some people are choosing to do them in a favorite color or flower, such as stargazer lilies-which is a very fragrant and beautiful lily.   Add some curly willow, and you’ve made it very special for them!
   
   “For added romance, we get a lot of orders for bags of fresh rose petals. 95% of the time they want red, but you also can ask for mixed colors which includes whatever petals we have available: red, white, pink, yellow, lavender, orange—any color.
   
  
     
   “For birthdays we usually do birthday balloons, bears, or a box of chocolates with a nice bright and colorful arrangement.  Our chocolate line is very popular.  We sell a lot of Harry London Chocolates.
 
    “We have a good selection of plants. Peace lilies are popular for sympathy— its really comforting, green with white blooms.  We also have philodendrons, ficus, and dish gardens.  Dish gardens are a variety of mixed plants that come in a basket or a dish.  We have blooming plants that can always be transplanted outdoors.  Some common ones are azaleas, hydrangeas, and kalanchoes.
    ​  ​  
  
   
   “I like it when its busy.  The three major holidays are Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Mother’s Day.   Mother’s Day is probably the busiest week. 
 
   “We are a big military town here. Travis Air Force Base is close to us.  Many people have their sons and daughters stationed here, so they use us to send their flowers for whatever occasion. 
 
   “I like to make people happy.  Flowers express happiness, sorrow, that you are thinking of somebody, or just because you’re special.  Flowers can really make a difference.  I love it when the driver comes back and tells us how the lady was so excited. That always makes you feel good.”
