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.

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.

Simple review? LOOK NO FURTHER! Detail reader? Merrilee and her team are the absolute best and I couldn't recommend them more. I didn't know flowers, I didn't know what colors I wanted. Or what my theme was. I couldn't really gave her much to go on but somewhere along our two brief meetings she created that image for me and then blew my mind with what she put together the day of the wedding. I didn't cry until I saw my peonies come in the door. Want to see pictures? @leepaplatt My family has used Ganim's for my sisters wedding, mine, and now they help us make our new home look pretty (and are all super knowledgeable). I seriously cannot recommend them enough and would no go anywhere else!

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!
