WAYNE – Since opening six months ago, a northeast Nebraska flower shop has had continued support from customers and welcomed the community in Friday morning.
The office of Wayne Area Economic Development hosted their weekly Friday morning Chamber Coffee on November 2.
The Flower Cellar, formerly Diamonds Center/Flowers & Wine, is located just off 2nd and Main Street in Wayne.
Greta Smith is the owner of The Flower Cellar and said they officially opened in April of 2018.
“We’ve been going like crazy ever since,” said Smith. “People have been really, really great, very supportive; all of our old customers and we’ve gotten quite a few new ones too. It’s been really awesome.”
Visit The Flower Cellar on Facebook or view their website at theflowercellar.net for more information.
Fresh flowers for birthday parties, funerals, anniversary’s, get-well-soon, weddings and all of the above parties are available at The Flower Cellar.
“But we also do have a lot of new gift items that we didn’t have before,” Smith added. “We have a lot of workshops where you can come, and you can make your own project and take it home.”
The 20th annual Caring Rose Week is scheduled for the first full week of November (Monday, November 5 – Saturday, November 10).
Florists across the central United States will gather nearly 40 tons of food for those in need.
During the week, if customers bring in two items for the food pantry and $10, The Flower Cellar will send you home with a dozen roses.
“It’s a really great thing,” Smith mentioned. “We’ve had lots and lots of people come in and bring the things in for the food pantry that we donate to them and they get to take home some beautiful flowers.”
Karla Hix was also the recipient of the 4th Quarter Congeniality Award presented by WAED.
