The shop is organized beautifully –  just look to the little chalk signs throughout the room to see what flower has caught your eye, and bloom by bloom create your own bouquet. Their lovely and creative staff specialize in arranging unique and personal designs for customers and corporate clients alike.

Proprietor Nancy Anderson makes use of every inch of space in her shop – the room is filled to the ceiling with shelves of blooms, vases, succulents and various art pieces. The fresh cut flowers are showcased behind beautiful white French doors, making the endless assortment of colours pop through pretty windowpanes. Their exotic floral collection is imported from all over the world, including Holland, Mexico and New Zealand.

Offering full wedding services, the florists can provide displays for any wedding venue, from an intimate garden ceremony to a banquet hall bash. They also carry giftware, from glassware to porcelain vases, making Purple Orchid a one-stop shop for wedding wonders.
