High-End Design with Bella Grace Floral

Nancy Staples, owner of Bella Grace Floral, wanted a flower shop that was very different from anything  in her area. Now, three years after she purchased Bella Grace, her shop focuses on making custom high-end designs for anyone in her community.

Staples began her love for flower design when she was a little girl and her grandparents owned a flower shop. After having a career in banking, Staples knew she wanted to change things up and pursue her love of floral design. She took over the 20-year-old  flower shop and has made it a successful business with reputable design. Three years later, Bella Grace Floral is recognized as a high-end florist in the Cornelius, North Carolina area.

As the leading floral provider for NASCAR, Bella Grace is the premier shop for weddings, sympathy and everything in between. They work closely with clients of a variety of budgets to make their floral vision come to life.

Bella Grace 1As a local florist, Bella Grace has a huge focus on its customers. Having loyal customers who have been coming to the shop for 20 years, since before Staples took over, Staples believes her shop has a real responsibility in maintaining the quality of their product and offering the best in design. It is because of these loyal customers that Staples loves being a local florist.

For a quality florist who has a passion for creating sophisticated design for local customers, you get that and more with Bella Grace Floral.

Your Christmas Guide To Evergreens

The holidays are coming up fast and it’s time to put up your last-minute decorations! We put together a quick guide on how you can incorporate these three evergreens into your holiday decor.

If you are looking for the smells and textures of Christmas, then look no further than the three popular holiday greens: Fir, Pine, and Cedar.


Firs are very fragrant and shiny evergreens with dark green needles. Two popular firs are the Douglas Fir, which has beautiful soft needles, and the Pacific Silver Fir, which have a silvery-white color under its needles.


Pines are known for their bright green color and long needles. The Princess Pine is popular due to its soft texture. The shore pine has long needles and small pine cones that add to the overall rustic look.


The Port Orford Cedar is the most popular of cedars and it is recognized by its long stems and lacy tips. It is also one of the most long-lasting greens. It maintains its vitality and color for many weeks.

If you are looking to incorporate these wonderful evergreens in your holiday decor, head to your local florist for a beautiful holiday design!

Happy Thanksgiving 2015 from FSN

Flower Shop Network wishes you a wonderful Thanksgiving with family, friends, and lots of delicious food!

Thanksgiving Arrangements from the About Flowers Blog

Still looking for the perfect Thanksgiving arrangement? Here are some truly creative designs, of turkeys and cornucopias with flowers, from our friends at SAF’s blog, aboutflowersblog.com.

Turkeys and Cornucopia
by Stephen Rittner
Two major symbols for Thanksgiving are Turkeys and Cornucopia. It is amazing and fun to combine these symbols with flowers for wonderful floral designs for the holiday.

Benjamin Franklin suggested that this wonderful and tasty bird become a national symbol. Unfortunately for the turkey it didn’t make the cut, losing to the bald eagle, and instead became our favorite food for the Thanksgiving holiday. A famous myth of the Thanksgiving holiday is that turkey was served for the first Thanksgiving. We don’t know if that was really true. It could have very well been goose, or something else. Turkeys throughout the continent are advocates of this “first goose” theory … along with promoting ham or even salmon for the holiday. Regardless of turkey politics, your guests will definitely enjoy not only the culinary turkey but also floral designs that incorporate the turkey as a visual symbol.

A wicker container in the shape of our favorite holiday bird can be the source of many festive floral designs…..

Quality Blooms From Severna Flowers

Bill Dyott knows quality flowers come from a shop with experience. Since 1977, Severna Flowers and Gifts in Severna Park, Maryland, has pushed their shop to design arrangements to be proud of and to reflect the years of experience in the business. From prom corsages to funeral sprays, this full-service, family-owned shop continues to put smiles on the community it loves.

A Shop That Stands Out

What sets this shop apart, according to Dyott, is the quality of the blooms and the drive for excellent customer service. Severna’s reputation is evident. Voted The Best of Severna Park three years in a row by the “Severna Park  Voice,” there is no doubt that this shop is beloved by its community.

Local Rocks!

Dyott loves being a local florist! Everyday he creates beauty that makes someone smile, he said. What he enjoys the most is the relationship he has with his customers. “They are customers that are part of the community and they become our friends,” Dyott said.

Severna Flowers and Gifts continues to bring smiles to everyone in the Severna Park community and their goal is to always go the extra mile. From “just because” to wedding flowers, Severna Flowers has it all!

Floral Fall Host Gifts

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and you are putting your finishing touches to your shopping list. Don’t forget to add a gift for the host of Thanksgiving dinner as a thank you for their generosity! Here is a quick guide for some great floral host gift!

Blooming Centerpiece

A flower centerpiece is a perfect gift to give the host of the Thanksgiving dinner, because they can use the arrangement as the final touch to their tablescape.

Talk to your florist so you can add some simple candles!

Basket of Florals

A simple basket of blooms is a nice little thank you to a wonderful friend who is hosting Thanksgiving! Have your local florist add a little pumpkin or acorns to give it that essence of fall.

Simple and Elegant Arrangement

A vase arrangement is a simple, yet elegant gift for any host. Consider sunflowers, orange lilies and snapdragons to make an eye-catching arrangement!

Flowers are the perfect gift to your Thanksgiving host because they can use their arrangements to decorate the Thanksgiving table. Head to your local florist to plan your host gift today!


November Card Messages

Flowers speak more than a thousand words, yet we still like that little note attached to an arrangement expressing the meaning behind the flowers. Here are some ideas of what to write to make any occasion extra special!

Thinking of You

The number of blooms symbolize the many times you’re on my mind. Thinking of you now and forever.

Thinking of you and wishing you the best of days.


Thanksgiving is about giving thanks for all the wonderful people in our lives. Here’s a big thank you for being a part of mine.

Wishing you a wonderful holiday where gratitude and joy fills the day. Happy Thanksgiving!
