Floral designer Kim Starr Wise opens The Flower Shop
We all know this year has impacted everyone in different ways, especially brides and grooms. But studies have proven that flowers can positively affect a person’s mood, giving people a heightened sense of enjoyment and a better outlook on life.
Typically, flowers are used in all aspects of a wedding from the bride’s bouquet to the centerpieces on a reception table. Local floral designer Kim Starr Wise, of Kim Starr Wise Floral Events, whose work is popular among couples, recently opened The Flower Shop — and it’s not just for weddings.
Located on Magazine Street, The Flower Shop offers signature botanicals, flowers and accents typical of a Kim Starr Wise arrangement, but on any budget and for any time of the year. Customers looking for flowers for any simple occasion, or just to brighten their home, can visit the boutique and hand pick many options sold by the stem – to match a specific color scheme or theme – or pick from an array of pre-made arrangements, potted plants, planters and candles.
You can order a specific arrangement through the store’s website – or in person and by calling the shop – or you can opt for a one-on-one consultation.
Couple’s planning to get married can now pick up a few pre-made bouquets for a bridal shower or engagement party, or head to the shop and pick out a few specific flowers to accompany date-night in with a to-go order from a local New Orleans restaurant.
No matter what you opt for, The Flower Shop is giving a new floral experience that will boost the mood of guests at any event.
