With prom season in full swing, Blossoms Florist encourages high school students to customize their corsages and bouquets with bling, feathers and beads.
“Our corsages generally start at $25 and bouquets start at $35 and go up depending on how it’s customized,” Adams said. “We’ve grown about 50 percent this prom season compared to last year because we moved here. Even a lot of the surrounding counties are coming here to get their prom stuff.”
The co-owners are also in the midst of renovating their now vacant 2,400 square foot space at 227 Ivey Weaver Road to provide the community a venue to hold events.
“We’re trying to fix it up right now to hold simple parties — like kid’s parties and showers — and then hopefully be able to host larger events like weddings within the next couple of months,” Braddy said.
Blossoms is open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday.
“I love this business because you get a chance to do something different everyday. When our customers come back, they eventually become more like family because of the relationship we build with them,” Adams said. “We’re really excited to be here with other downtown merchants and really appreciative of how receptive they’ve been. Hopefully we will meet new customers who will become long-time customers.”
