My parents owned a flower shop in the San Francisco area so needless to say I have been arranging flowers for a long time. Thinking my floral career would be put on hold after we moved to Bainbridge Island, I sold all my floral supplies to a flower buddy. With encouragement of family and friends I once again started my own floral design firm, Melanie Benson Floral. I started with wedding flowers and now my business has grown to include other occasions. Occasions that include holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and personal occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, and sympathy
My style is always evolving through education and my own keen interest in cut flowers or expanding my garden. I thoroughly enjoy a trip to the wholesale market where I select flowers by color, texture and uniqueness. It is always worth a ferry ride to be among such beautiful fresh blooms.
Maybe your occasion is a need for wedding flowers or just a bride’s bouquet. Perhaps your friend is having a birthday or you want to send something to your mom for mother’s day. We would be happy to deliver flowers for any occasion.
