We’re here in Santa Rosa, CA with Pedy, owner of Pedy’s Petals. 

 ​​
“I was born and raised in this business... my mom and dad had a flower shop in Sebastopol for thirty years called Gwen’s Flower Shop.  I worked with my parents for the last seventeen years they had the flower shop.  We lost my dad in 1991, and we sold the shop.  I thought I wanted to stay at home and be a mom and a wife and all that kind of stuff.

   “Flash forward to 2011, and I decided I wanted to get back into the flower business.  At that time, my mom became ill, and I lost her in March of 2011.  I created Pedy’s Petals to keep her spirit alive inside of me.  We opened in July of 2011- the greatest thing I have ever done. We’ve been open five and a half years... it’s just a great life!  Although it’s hard work, there’s not a day that I say to myself, ‘Oh my god, I have to go to work’.  I hate being sick because I can’t be here.  And I always want to be here.”



[On why flowers] “Not only do flowers make me happy, but they make everybody who walks through my doors happy.  One of my favorite things is when people come in and say, ‘Oh, I remember being a little kid and going into your mom and dad’s shop-it smells exactly the same’.  Every flower shop carries that wonderful aroma that I believe comforts the heart and soul.”

 
[About a customer]  “That was Peter, I love that guy... a very good customer of ours.  He just wanted to pick up a quick little thank-you gift for one of the people in his office.  That’s the way it is around here... busy helping people fill all their flower needs.”

What are your tips for Romance Flowers?
  “Guys will call up and ask for a dozen roses.  And I ask, ‘Are you saying a dozen roses because you don’t know what else to do?’  Nine times out of ten that’s what they say. I go in and say I really want to make wife, partner, or whomever – I want to make them feel special today. And you know what, let the florist do their magic.  Don’t go online and order something from some people you don’t even know.  Call your local florist-I suggest you call Pedy’s Petals.
 
   “I would take Daphne, a flower only available in the spring, and incorporate it in with lilies, gerberas, roses-just a nice mix of fragrance. I think it is the best thing.  It’s pretty, and it smells pretty.
 
   “Last Valentine’s day, I had a gentleman come in and order 500 roses.  This was not on Valentine’s Day, this was on February 13th.  But he wanted these roses and I dropped everything to take care of this man. He wanted his woman to know how much he loved her.”
  
       
How do you do 500 roses?
   “We got a huge container, filled it up with Oasis and water, and designed it on a push cart so that we could push it into the delivery van.  It took two people to load and deliver.  It was pretty amazing.”


On Sympathy Flowers
   “There’s nothing worse, than walking into a service with no flowers.  Your eyes have nowhere to go, and that makes things harder. I can personally say that in every sympathy piece I make I pour all of my love into that piece for that family, so when they are standing at the service their eyes have somewhere to go.  Being able to see and smell the flowers that are a tribute to your loved one-that’s what being a florist is all about.”
 
On Weddings  

“We average two to four weddings per weekend. We did one in July that was our absolute biggest wedding to date.  We made incredible peony bouquets for them.  The arch was above and beyond gorgeous, plus we did tall cylinders with huge arrangements on top.  We did rings to float in the swimming pool.  There were six bags of rose petals down the aisle-it was my favorite and most phenomenal wedding that we have ever done to date.  I love weddings because it’s such a happy day.”

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!
