We are often asked what inspired The Flower Bar. In a word, COVID. As the world stopped in March 2020, so did events and our ability to create event florals. Rob convinced Melissa to open up shop and she agreed, but under one condition: it had to be an interactive flower shop. One where people could come see what our local farms were producing. Where they could see, touch and smell the flowers that they wanted in their arrangements. A place where we could help a client design or do it for them. A place where they could get curated floral novelties and gift boxes. A place where they could take a workshop with us and learn to do anything from making bath bombs to Christmas wreaths to centerpieces.
We decided that designing would be a lot more fun if our clients could bring their friends and have a drink, and heck, while they are at it, why not create their own drink as well?! And The Flower Bar was born.
