We delivered our first bouquet (lilies and gerberas for Wendy!) in January 2013. After initially working from a home-based studio, we are pleased to serve our customers from our counter at Safari Cake Boutique, 842 Gardiners Rd.
We deliver Tuesday through Saturday to Kingston, Amherstview, Queen's, St. Lawrence, Kingston Hospitals, and surrounding communities.
Sunday and Monday deliveries are by pre-book only, for special delivery, weddings, or funeral services, as the shop is closed Sunday and Monday. (Exceptions are made for 'big flower dates' such as Mother's Day!)
Our style tends toward natural and 'gardeny' and we take great pride in learning a little about our recipients to create thoughtful arrangements.
Owner and florist Jen Atkinson-Spencer has lived in Kingston her whole life, except for university days in Windsor, Ontario and a magical year in Northern California.
Her background was in theatre and costuming, but in her mid 20s, her grandmother's gardener genes kicked in. Jen went back to college for her horticulture papers, but she took floral design 101 as an elective. After working in a flower shop during off season, she caught a bad case of the flower fever! After working her way up from part time floor sweeper to full time assistant at a local flower shop, she struck out on her own.
Jen would like to thank all customers past and present for letting her bring the magic of these temporary, colourful bits of nature into their lives.
She currently lives in the West side with her husband Steve and her pet cat, Mr. Bingley.
OPEN Tues-Fri 10am-6pm, Saturdays 10am-2pm.
CLOSED Sun-Mon except for 'flower holidays' ie. Mother's Day
SPECIAL DELIVERY and FUNERAL DELIVERY may be available Sunday and Monday- by appointment only. Please call.
