Meet Karen of
The Flower Shop


Welcome to 
The Flower Shop

We’re here in Citrus Heights, California, speaking with Karen, owner of The Flower Shop:

   “My mother loved flowers.  As a child, I remember our yard filled with peonies, hydrangeas, azaleas, glads ,and  all kinds of different roses.  That’s where my love for flowers came from, and the flower business has always been good to me.   I believe in keeping up with the trends, and I seek education so I can be the best florist I can possibly be. 
      “Floral artistry is what we do.  We use a lot of curly willow, tropicals, and unusual materials.  We have lots of roses and beautiful hydrangeas. We do all the special foliages like ti leaves, aspidistra, pittosporum, and lemon leaf.  With the onset of the vintage look we are now carrying the most beautiful baby’s breath in the world-we have been using it a lot in our weddings. We always have a full selection of Oncidium, Phalaenopsis, and Cymbidium orchids. The flowers we buy are primarily grown in California, but we also buy from South America and Hawaii.  Most of our roses come from South America. The new garden roses are coming from our coast up here in Northern California and this grower has definitely done wonders with spray roses and garden roses-I can’t say enough about them.”

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!

Karen Gives Insider Flower Tips                   
 The Flower Shop

   “Being AIFD ( America Institute of Floral Design) certified  is kind of like having your Ph.D. in floristry.  I went back and acquired the accreditation in 1992.  We are fortunate enough to say that our designer, Tanya was inducted in July into AIFD.  Now we have two designers that are AIFD certified.  My office manager Colby happens to be very artistic.  Colby is going to try and go test this year so that she too can become AIFD certified.
   “We’ve gotten very busy.  We are very well known for our sympathy work, and we’re getting quite the reputation for weddings.  I love running a flower shop. I love being able to one day do flowers for a new baby, then the next day a wedding, and the next day corsages for proms. We have such a great clientele. We’re just down the street from a high school and we treat the kids like they are gold.  When they come in for corsages we show them story boards, we ask them if they want rhinestones. 
We go the extra mile! 
      “We have a lot of guys that coming in on Friday afternoons looking for flowers. We let them hand pick their flowers, and we wrap them in a way that for $25 looks like a $50 bouquet. They all have learned that we have the highest quality flowers anywhere in town. 
   “Anytime is the best time to give flowers, whether it’s an anniversary, a newborn baby or just to say I’m thinking of you today.  I love it when guys come in here and say they’re getting flowers just because.”
