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.
