Turkey Day Flowers

Turkey Day Flowers

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is just a few short weeks away?

growing-up-at-the-flower-shoppeWhen I was a little girl, my Granny opened her own flower shop, Cathy’s Flowers and Gifts.  She opened it with plenty of handmade, amazing items.  My Pa-Pa would do the woodwork and my Granny would paint each one by hand.  To me, each piece had so much love in them.  They were beautiful and I greatly wish I had some of those pieces in my home today.

My cousin and I would go to the shop with Granny quite often.  We would ‘work’ by filling balloons with sand to anchor balloon bouquets and stuff and seal envelopes for whatever purpose they served.  We would ‘earn’ our lunch and get to go across the street by ourselves on our lunch break, we were very grown up you see.

We also had the privilege of eating way more Hershey’s Kisses than our parents knew about or desired to allow us to have.  LOL.  To this day, I absolutely love those little things!  They are definitely my kryptonite!

Almost 30 years later, Granny’s shop has grown and morphed.  The little shop she had now has three florists and even does events!  No longer does Granny & Pa-Pa make so much of the merchandise by hand and the name has changed to Cathy’s Flowers and Events but the love that one feels in that shop is still the same.

cathys-flowers-and-eventsI’ve had the privilege of helping to decorate very elegant houses for the holidays, assist in decorating and staffing some of the most beautiful weddings ever.  My favorite Uncle is the owner now and he is also an award winning florist who is amazingly talented!

I love helping him, even when he goes all neurotic stressed out crazy during events and Valentine’s Day.  LOL.  Don’t worry, only the staff and family get to see that side of him.  LOL

It’s time to decorate for Thanksgiving and I’ve got some amazing examples they were willing to share from Cathy’s so I hope you enjoy the eye candy!  If you are ever in the region, it’s worth a drive to pick up some awesome flowers and decor for your home or even as gifts!  You can also check them out on Facebook.

    My fondest memories are with working with my dad. I was too young to work with my grandparents, and I really enjoyed laying tile with my father.

    As a child I loved to “help” my mom grocery shop. I had a little shopping cart and we would push our shopping carts side by side. She always put a few things in mine and I felt like such a grown up. They were great there and always bagged a few small things for my cart while were we checking out.

    My grandparents lived along way from us, so I did not get to see them but a couple times a year. My mother’s parents had a grocery store and I use to love helping them stock it.
