The nationally recognized design team at Plaza Flowers has been creating beautiful wedding bouquets and event centerpieces for 33 years. That experience and attention to detail has earned Plaza Flowers the designation of “Best Wedding Florist 2017 – Greater Philadelphia” by Lux International. LUX magazine is a premium lifestyle publication covering all things luxurious, including spectacular weddings and events.
“Just being nominated is a huge compliment and shows evidence of hard work, but winning in this competitive market is a true sign of excellence in execution” said Amy Gower, Awards Executive and Lux Magazine. Plaza Flowers is proud to add this accolade to it’s long list of awards including Pennsylvania’s Florist of The Year. The past twelve months have been the busiest ever at Plaza Flowers, and sales continue to explode as the team focuses on quality flowers, creative designs and unsurpassed service.
“When it comes to the wedding day, we have one chance to get it right,” explained Chris Drummond, President of Plaza Flowers. “I challenge my staff to treat every wedding as if it were their own, leaving no detail left to chance.” From the initial consultation to making wise recommendations to procuring farm-direct flowers to creating breathtaking designs to time-sensitive delivery and setup, the professionals at Plaza Flowers are on top of the process and allow the bride to relax and know that the flowers for her big day will be perfect.
Kellynoreen Pascal is the Design Director who heads the events team and enjoys the excitement of making each wedding unique. “The language of flowers is a way to express emotions. Planning your wedding flowers means adding lots of personal touches, so I encourage couples to choose flowers that have a special sentiment or meaning behind them. There is sure to be a flower to fit everyone’s style, emotion and message. Every flower has a story to tell!” That is one reason why Plaza Flowers has avoided selling wedding packages, which allow brides to choose from a menu of stock designs. Instead, Pascal and her team encourage brides to complete a preconsultation survey at Pflorist.com. This allows the consultant to prepare custom, creative ideas prior to meeting with the bride.
In online reviews and thank-you letters, brides often reference this level of personalized service and the high quality of the designs. It’s hard to beat three generations of experience, especially when the company is still owned and operated by the Drummond Family who founded the business. Heather Tuckey, Vice President, touts the benefits of being a right-sized family florist. “We are small enough to give you that desired service and attention, yet big enough to handle large events and leverage our buying power for great pricing.” Plaza Flowers serves about 40,000 customers annually from their ten thousand square foot flagship store at Egypt and Trooper Roads in Jeffersonville. Brides and event planners also enjoy their convenient special events office at 1515 Market Street in Center City.
Plaza Flowers previously received Wedding Wire’s “Couples Choice” award, “Top Florist” by The Knot, “Top 100” by FTD, and “Top 50” by Teleflora.
