We’re here in Auburn, CA with Sheri and Emilio, owners of O’Shays Flowers & Antiques.  

“Hi, my name is Sheri, and I’ve worked here for twenty-seven or so years and we finally bought the shop three years ago. I didn’t know what to do when the owner was selling it-I didn’t want to work for anybody else, so we bought it. It’s been working out really well.

We do a lot of weddings. We cover New Castle Wedding Gardens and a couple other places in town, as well as numerous personal weddings too. We do a huge business servicing our customers everyday needs. We service all of Auburn and neighboring communities.

We do a lot of funerals-we’re booked in with a couple funeral homes including Chapel of the Hills, Lassila, and Sierra Foothills. I always try and make sure that every tribute is really special and pull off what the customer is wanting. The funeral homes trust us here to do that correctly for their clients. “We are a full service antique store. We have a lot of different antiques coming in and out of here weekly. We also are building up our gift line.

I like that it’s different every day. We get different orders, and different things to create.”   

Sheri Gives An Insider's Perspective

[Romance] “Just giving flowers more regularly and coming up with good card messages can make a huge impact. Don’t be so, ‘Love ya, Happy Anniversary.’ We have guys that bring in their own vase and remember what flowers they had on their wedding day. Then we help them recreate something in their vase using the same flowers that they had in their wedding. Now that’s romance!”

[Weddings] “The brides are going in for more color. Now it’s the bridesmaids with the white, and the brides that are carrying the colors. Another up and coming trend has been big bouquets with greenery. We are making bouquets with umbrella fern and assorted greeneries, with just a sprinkle of white mixed in. It’s a very natural looking bouquet. It’s that gathered forest look-but it has to be flowing and be very romantic. We do a lot with hanging greenery.”

[Flowers in general] “Everybody loves hydrangea and peonies, and they all want garden roses. I love the lisianthus and freesia. Lisianthus is not a rose but it’s like a rose. It’s old fashioned looking. The freesia on the other hand has an incredible scent.”

[Why Flowers] “I have a lady that likes us to bring her flowers every week, each time something different. She likes gladiolas one week, sunflowers the next. She likes them in her kitchen because it just makes her feel better while she’s in there cooking. Her husband sends them to her all year long as a gift. I have another customer that sends flowers monthly as a birthday gift to their mom. She gets it the day of her birthday, but every month. I have people come in here all the time and tell me, ‘Your flowers really last a long time-it’s amazing’. “The best thing about being in the flower business is always designing something unique.”

The Magic of Flowers and Plants

Flowers always say, "You're special!"
There is nothing like the thrill of receiving flowers. You feel special: someone is thinking about you, wanting to lift your spirits and make your day!  Flowers touch all our senses, from visual vibrant colors to sweet fragrances.  These powerful elements evoke pleasant memories of past times.  Flowers are timeless, and bring those sweet memories to the present.
    Who isn’t thrilled by the brilliance of color, the richness of life in the garden!  We give plants and flowers  because we love the beauty of the outdoors.  Giving plants and flowers as gifts brings the garden indoors for us to enjoy.

More to consider:
Flowers can be a gift for anyone.
From son to father, daughter to mom, friend to friend... tell someone they are special with flowers.  Give flowers at unexpected times. Giving flowers is a spontaneous act of kindness that will brighten any person’s day.  Consider flowers as a thank you!  Acknowledge all that someone has done for you by giving them flowers.
     The bottom line: let someone know that you are thinking about them. Flowers always say, “I’m here for you!”

There is a whole world of flowers out there... 
get to know them! 

Flowers come in a marvelous variety of shapes, sizes, and colors.  Try something new and interesting the next time you order.   By learning the flower choices, you can personalize your arrangements to suit your taste or that of your recipient.  For example, if your mom loves hydrangeas, you will know what to ask for. 
     Ordering from a florist is going to be much easier when you can tell them specifically what flowers you like. The guide that follows represents some of the more common flower choices available in flower shops.  Ask your florist for their expert opinion in picking your flowers.  Working closely with your florist will get you the best results!
