Many customers shopping for flowers online often don't get to see the difference between flowers delivered by an actual florist and flowers sent from an online florist.  This is a must read for anyone who loves to send flowers.

The Gilbert Days Parade was Saturday November 19, 2011.  The parade went very well.  As always our float was a big hit with the crowds.  We handed out flowers to spectators during the parade and we ran out before the end!

We would like to thank all our family members who participated during the parade.  Your help is valuable and we can't pull it off with out you.  We also thank our vendors for providing such beautiful flowers.  Their support is very appreciated.

The annual gluing party is November 18, 2011 at Watson Flower Shops in Mesa, AZ.  All family members are invited to participate in this.  This year the the float will have larger than life sunflowers.  Bring the whole family.  Drinks and snacks will be provided.  We look forward to seeing you there!

The Gilbert Days Parade will be the following morning. Parade will be starting at 9am.  The parade route follows Gilbert Rd starting at Guadalupe Rd to Elliot.  Come support the family tradition.

At Watson Flower Shops we provide custom design work for a variety of occasions.  Just recently we had the priviledge of designing two unique tributes for Arizona families.

The first was a floral replica of the Arizona Cardinals logo.  It turned out very well and was well received by the family for the services.  The family really appreciated the care taken by Watson's to provide this fitting tribute during a difficult time.  That tribute is featured below.

The second was of a larger than life replica of a baseball.  This amazing floral tribute used red miniature carnations as stitching and it's detail was incredible.  The family was very appreciative of the care taken to design such a beautiful piece.  That design is shown below.

The staff at Watson Flower Shops very happy to make unique and special designs for sympathy work.  Let Watson Flower Shops be your florist to show your love and affection for loved ones who have passed away.

A couple of weeks ago we made some arrangements for a wedding with a very unique flare.  Below is the brides bouquet and it was fabulous.

The bride's bouquet was stunning.  It featured sunflowers, spider mums, green "Trick" carnations, white hydrangea and wheat!  Amazing!

The bridesmaids bouquets were also unique.  Below is one of those arrangements.

Shown below is one of the corsages and the groom's boutonniere.

Custom design work is what our designer's love to do.  If you have any events coming up or know people who are getting married, we can create custom design work for them.  Just call us to make an appointment.

Watson Flower Shops Presents
(in color and sound)

This video was made by David Johnson and one of his sons in 1994.  The video was for a school project but has now been made available for your enjoyment.  It's very funny and it's amazing to see the changes on Apache Blvd since 1994.  All the scenes were filmed on location at Watson Flower Shops.

While looking through some of our older containers in the stock room our designers were thinking of ways to use those containers in bouquets.  The old discontinued items had arrangements put in them to help us move the product.  The end result are the beautiful bouquets shown below, each discounted to give our customers extra savings.  The plan is to routinely go through old containers and offer discounts on them.  We hope you enjoy.  These bouquets can be ordered off the Watson Flower Shops website and are featured on the home page and also the Monthly Specials category.
