We Live to Impress

Unmatched Creativity & Service

Our floral designers are ready to create a masterpiece exclusively for your unique style. The beauty of flowers lies in their nature – delicate or hardy, colorful or understated, simple or voluminous. No matter your event venue, Ganim’s Florist can work with you to achieve the perfect fit.

If you need just a few bouquets for an anniversary party, or a full arbor and table decorations for an outdoor wedding, we can handle it all.

Merilee from Ganim’s did our flowers for our August 3rd wedding and I can’t say enough good things about her! She was so personable, She understood my vision within a few minutes of meeting me, and she was willing to work within our budget every step of the way. She even gave me a few ideas of how to save additional money because she knew I really wanted to use her! There was a few revisions to our our original quote and plan and she was flexible and responsive. Then the day of, the flowers arrived and I was stunned. The bouquets were beautiful but our centerpieces stole the show! Everyone was talking about them. We mixed high and low centerpieces and they completely flowed. We had cake flowers and I am still looking at those pictures of how amazing they were. Same with the small touches all over the venue, Merilee just got it! I would recommend her to anyone. Thank you again Merilee 🙂

From the start, Merrilee was so helpful and easy to work with. She took all of my photos and ideas and worked them into a very affordable proposal. Even when I requested small changes, she responded and made adjustments in a very timely way. On the day of, the flowers could not have been more gorgeous. We received many compliments and we were so happy to have had such an amazing experience with Ganim's. If you are looking for professionalism, expert knowledge, and affordable yet beautiful flowers for an event- I could not recommend Ganim's more!

I went to Ganim's with a picture of the bouquet that I wanted. They did an amazing job selecting the flowers to create it. They did a great job with all the bridal party flowers.

Merrilee and her team at Ganims LITERALLY nailed it for our wedding. Their arrangements and bouquets were the talk of our guests. I gave very little direction for what I wanted and every centerpiece, bouquet and the arbor flowers had their own unique look and feel that were PERFECT for the venue...Merrilee made flowers one of my favorite processes for the wedding and I would recommend her to any and all of my friends for the future.

Ganim's was amazing to work with for our wedding! Merrilee was SO helpful and responsive in getting us exactly what we wanted, I really felt like she "got" the look I was going for and everything was so beautiful and perfect. The whole team was friendly, pricing was very reasonable, and I felt like they went above and beyond for us. I highly recommend Ganim's for your wedding or special event!

Merrilee at Ganim's florist made the boutonnieres, corsages, bridal and mother's bouquets for our wedding. We gave her a general idea of what we wanted with photos from Pinterest, trusting her judgement. Everything came out beautifully...We would definitely consider hiring her again for any future occasion.
