|You may not have noticed them; but chances are you’ve driven by their shop at least once this week already. The Flower Market of The Woodlands, located at 19073 I-45 S (Northbound) just beyond Sam’s Club has been arranging and delivering some of the most beautiful floral arrangements and thoughtful gifts for a little over a year now. We stopped in to snap some pictures in the midst of a flurry of activity for a Saturday afternoon wedding package creation.
The bride had selected a unique color palette of purple, green and white and we arrived just as they were putting the finishing touches on the most important of all wedding floral arrangements – the bride’s bouquet. “We can make wedding packages as simple or as elaborate as the customer wishes,” Andrea Canales, florist co-owner said. “We have the flexibility to work with any budget.” She went on to explain that bridal packages can be adjusted all manner of ways to work just the way the customer wants. Arrangements can be based on a particular color, or a particular flower or both. “You have to remember that even if you’ve selected the most exotic flower, there are a wealth of other, less expensive flowers and greenery that can fill out the arrangements and keep the budget in perspective.”
The Flower Market of The Woodlands is family owned by people who know the flower business, inside and out. Shop co-owner and Andrea’s husband, Daniel, is a fourth generation florist. His mother, who was visiting from overseas while we were there, was proud to tell us this is what she has done for decades and still has a shop back home, just as her mother, and her grandmother did. With confidence and experience like that, why would you go anywhere else? The Flower Market of The Woodlands is open Monday – Saturday, with delivery available all six days. Same day delivery service is available if orders are placed by 2:00 PM Monday – Friday, and noon on Saturday. Delivery to all zip codes of The Woodlands is available for a nominal fee of $8, Conroe and Spring for $10 and Magnolia for $12. Brides-to-be are welcome to call for an appointment for a consultation on wedding packages,
September, 2010 it appears that the owners of “The Flower Market of The Woodlands” has closed their doors. The space that the Flower shop once inhabited is now vacant and their Facebook page has been deleted (while their website appears to be untouched). All attempts on our part to contact them have failed. TWE wishes them well in whatever venture they have undertaken and would love to hear from them sometime.
