Midlothian VA Florist - Vendor Spotlight

2014-03-12_0009Recently, I was lucky enough to get to know these lovely ladies at Designs by Janice, a florist located about five minutes from my house in Midlothian, VA! Janice was working on a new website and I offered to take some photos for her. I had a great time getting to know her and asked if she'd be willing to answer some questions for me for a new blog series I wanted to do featuring local wedding vendors. My hope is that I'll eventually have a great, unique resource for my brides who need help choosing wedding vendors. It's overwhelming to peruse website after website and sometimes you don't even know where the business is located and if it's feasible to hire them in the first place. Sometimes it's nice to have someone you already trust narrow things down a bit for you.

So let's get started with an amazing florist! Once you meet her, you'll instantly feel comfortable and taken care of. That is the distinct impression I've got from Janice when I have visited her store. That, along with the fact that it just smells frekin amazing in there :)

2014-03-12_0003 2014-03-12_0001How did you get started as a florist?

I started working with the floral industry while in college at Richard Bland.

2014-03-12_0004What would you say is your style and approach in working with your clients?

I try to make all brides feel welcome and never step outside of their budget. Always trying to get the look for them that they want. I want them to feel comfortable when speaking with me.

2014-03-12_0007What sets your business apart from others in the industry?

I feel we go above and beyond all of our brides expectations. It does not matter how many flowers we use, we add what we need to, in order to achieve the look they require. Our staff is wonderful with our brides, The mothers always feel comfortable in speaking with us! We build a relationship with them. They can call us anytime office or home.

2014-03-12_0002Who is your ideal client?

Our ideal client is a bride who says, make my designs from what I envision, do whatever you need to, you're the expert!

2014-03-12_0005What is the benefit to hiring a professional florist?

Hiring a professional florist is a must, really, we are trained and have the experience we need to stay with all the new designs that are out there. A lot goes into your flowers not just designing, but the care once they are received. And the delivery to your site. With our florist the designer always delivers your product.

2014-03-12_0008What would brides be surprised to know about you?

Brides would be surprised to know that we will always come within a range close to their budget! And that how easy it is for us to take all the thought process and create your vision. Our ideas are never ending. Just give us your color dress...we'll do the rest!
