Since opening our doors to the Reno community in 2013, we’ve focused on showing our clients the luxury of a first-class spa without losing the personal touch of a locally owned business.

’ve been told by some people that they think that giving flowers is a waste of money. “They just die,” they tell me. Personally, I think it is just horribly sad and breaks my heart that someone would think that giving flowers is a waste. And I swear I don’t just say that simply because I sell flowers! Make no mistake, I don’t ONLY sell flowers. I am blessed and feel lucky to be able to provide the outlet and opportunity for people to be able to share their positive emotions and sentiments with others.

’ve be waste just h giving flow sell flowers feel lucky t able to sha

Given the state of our political climate these days, what we see in the media, and the basic lack of civility in today’s culture at times, the one thing I love about my job is that I get to see people doing nice things for each other every day. What other small thing, like flowers, can bring more joy to someone’s day than letting that special person know that someone was thinking of them? To take the time to let an individual know that they were being thought of, were sorry for them, were grateful for them, were proud of them, or were excited for them. With those sentiments, I have to ask myself, “How can anyone ever think that sending something so special and beautiful—like flowers—ever be considered a waste of one’s time or money?”

Given the s media, and thing I love each other joy to some was thinkin were being proud of th ask myself, and beautif or money?”

In my profession, there is nothing more rewarding than knowing that I get to make people happy every day. It’s so fantastic to know that I get to make my living with great folks out there that still know how to give a thoughtful gift. Because of that, I have great hope for the future that people can come together and spread good will year-round, one flower arrangement at a time.

Chicken: Preheat oven to 400° On a flat surface, arrange chicken, breast side up, legs facing you. Place kitchen twine under the legs and pull up around the legs to tie legs together.
