“Award Winning Florist”
Pelham Flowers by Desiree is a success story of will, determination and the search and discovery of a life’s calling.
Since the very tender age of 4, Desiree has been finding beauty in every weed and road-side flower as she daily would assemble a new composition for her dear mother on her way from school. In her adolescence Desiree found herself working for a local landscaper creating “exasperatingly uncalled for” designs for her boss’s clients for which she received many praises. Later on, Desiree would frequent a humble shop in Pelham called Pelham Florist. In 2009, Desiree was given the offer of buying Pelham Flowers that today is home to Pelham Flowers By Desiree – Pelham’s all occasion florist offering customizable flowers for weddings, funeral flowers, sympathy flowers, get well flowers, mother’s day flowers, baby shower flower centerpieces, prom corsages, boutonniere for prom and gift baskets for all occasions. Pelham Flower’s by Desiree offers same day floral delivery in the Hoover, Birmingham, Alabaster, Helena, Indian Springs and Riverchase areas.
Today, the store is run by a closely knit team of designers. The shop is also home to two apprentices whom Desiree hopes will one day carry on this vanishing art of floral design. Both Desiree and Ms. Pat Johnson hold designations, diplomas and certificates in floral design from Alabama’s Auburn University,
Desiree often speaks of her clients not as customers but as “extended family” with whom she commiserates and shares life’s happy moments through her flowers. The shop prides itself on building relationships, not merely sales. Pelham Flowers by Desiree upholds small town business ideals, however, their shop’s offering of floral creations is anything but “small-town”.
In the future Pelham Flowers by Desiree hopes to become a franchise name and expand across Alabama without compromising its quality and values that makes this flower shop beloved by the residents of Shelby County, AL and metro Birmingham area.
