Congratulations to the August Business of the Month; Flowers by Alicia…
What a heartfelt visit to this month’s winner; Alicia. As soon as you walk into her shop, you’ll be amazed by all the colours and ambience that only a place with flowers can do. And this being her new address on Essington Lewis Avenue, Alicia has been able to decorate and display her products exactly how she’s visioned.
Flowers by Alicia has something for everyone, be it everyday arrangements for your home or that special someone, or maybe a bunch you can take as a memorial or for a celebration of life. All seasonal flowers are available as the year goes by and some fantastic arrangements of our very own natives not to be forgotten. Alicia’s business isn’t just about flowers though, as she also offers body care products, home fragrances, and plush toys. All of which can be added to a flower arrangement or purchased on their own. There’s even a wood engraving service that compliments gifts such as chopping boards, keepsake boxes, or even wedding displays.
Alicia has been in business for 10 years now and is complimented by an energetic apprentice and four other staff that have also been an asset to her success. But the team doesn’t stop there as it swells during ‘Mother’s Day’ with family and friends helping to get everything delivered on time.
What I learnt is that an arrangement of flowers isn’t just putting them into a vase. It’s about having a vision, an artistic flair for design, and a finishing product that shows how much you love your job as Alicia does.
And finally, on behalf of the Whyalla Business & Tourism team we’d like to congratulate Alicia on the future arrival of a new little person to her family
