My experiences here have been nothing but fabulous. The owner only hires professional designers, and only lets gorgeous designs out of her shop. They also did my wedding, and completely captured my vision. The prices were unbeatable by other florists in the area, and I'm sure they wouldn't have been able to be as helpful in executing my design. My bouquet was GORGEOUS, and three years later I still love showing the pictures when weddings come up. Please continue to support this local business for your event and day to day needs! They will definitely make it worth it.

The ladies at Petal and Pails where extremely helpful and I was able to get the most beautiful flower arrangement. I love going into their store, It always smells great and they have such cute stuff.
