Mar. Floral and Botanicals is a representation of my vision and style as a florist. I love combining colors, shapes, and textures to create unique designs.Marlee
The shop is home to some of the freshest and most unique flowers on the shoreline. By displaying the loose stems in the cooler, as well as on the floor and around the store, customers are inspired and envision how the flowers would look in their own homes or containers.
With inventory changing on a day-to-day basis, no designs are the same. Arrangements are created to order using the freshest flowers available.
I grew up in the backroom of a flower shop. By the time I was five years old I was making bouquets and wrapping dozens of roses. I worked for my parents at the their store, Madison Flower Shop and Garden Center through high school and college breaks and always knew I wanted a store of my own.
While I was in college at Suffolk University in Boston, I took courses at Rittner’s School of Floral Design and became a certified floral designer. I gained experience and worked in flower shops in Boston during school, and upon graduation moved back to Connecticut and took over my parents second location in Old Saybrook, CT.
