Flowers by Emily
After two years of specializing in exceptional floral creations for weddings and special events, Flowers by Emily opened a retail store in early 2007 off of 151st and Nall. Flowers by Emily moved to Park Place off of 115th and Nall on February 3rd, 2010. This distinctive shop is a full-service florist as well as a fashionable gift boutique. Emily is very particular about what goes into her shop, insisting on top quality with an artistic flair. Here you will not find generic arrangements of common flowers from a catalog. Whether you are looking for memorable floral designs for an unforgettable wedding or are just trying to brighten someone’s day, we will custom design each offering from the finest flowers available which are shipped directly to our door and lovingly treated to ensure long vase life. Come in and hand-pick your own bouquet, choose a special arrangement from the cooler or find that perfect gift. You may also call to have something delivered or use our convenient on-line ordering system. Whatever your preference, we are devoted to providing you with outstanding customer service. We take pride in satisfying your needs and look forward to serving you.

DIY Weekend: Windowsill planterIn anticipation of Spring, we wanted to bring our plant life indoors. Over the course of one weekend, we put together a wood planter box perfect for a sunny windowsill. All of our materials were either ones we had collecting dust at home or purchased from our local crafts store.Of course, no craft project is complete without a photo series to document it. With our step-by-step photo guide, this DIY weekend project really is foolproof!Created a windowsill planter box of your own? Be sure to let us know on our Facebook or Twitter! We love seeing the amazing creations our readers come up with.DIY Windowsill PlanterMaterials:Directions:1. With newspaper under your planter box, use sandpaper to smooth the edges of the box. Once smoothed, discard the wood particles and carefully dust off your box.2. Wearing gloves, pry off the lid of the can of wood stain with a screwdriver. Stir your stain thoroughly until the color becomes uniform, making sure to get your stirrer to the bottom. We didn’t have a paint stirrer so we improved with a pair of wood chopsticks.3. Using your brush of choice, thinly layer a coat of wood stain on your box. Work in one direction, keeping the paint edge wet.4. Allow stain to completely dry before adding on another layer. We used a sponge brush throughout the entire process but would use a bristle brush next time to avoid tiny sponge pieces sticking to our box.5. After you’re satisfied with the color of your box, line with a heavy duty plastic bag. Because our box had slits, we wanted to use a transparent bag so we could see inside. We created a box shape with a single gallon-sized freezer bag and hot glue gun, eyeballing measurements. If you’re doing the same, make sure to allow your glue gun to slightly cool before applying on the plastic. If not, it may melt the plastic!6. Fill your box with about a 1-inch layer of small rocks. Because our planter box won’t have drainage holes, we don’t want our plant roots to rot from sitting in water.7. Fill the remaining space with potting soil, up until about 1/2-inch from the liner edge.8. Transplant your plants or sow your seeds, and then cover your soil. Move planter box to a sunny window and watch your plants grow!
