Placerville Flowers on Main has been in business since January 1, 2007 as a full service floral shop and local art gallery. The new owner, Melissa Cowan, purchased the business from the previous owners in June 2014, after working alongside them for 7 years. “I had no real intentions to ever become a small business owner; it just kind of happened” said Melissa. After completing her education with two college degrees, instead of continuing her education even further, she decided that her love was actually for flowers.
We have a very high standard for our flowers. We buy all of our greens from a local Amador County grower and many of our flowers during the summer come from local El Dorado County growers. This not only supports our own community but gives our clients a “local” and “organic” option. We already have weddings booked for 2015 that are strictly local flowers: Our version of “farm to table” flowers.
We also have a very high standard for our designs. With the help of social media, we follow floral designers from all over the world, keeping our designs innovative and fresh. We pride ourselves on our capability to create a wide variety of designs, ranging from high style to more traditional. Courtney Richmond, a home grown resident of El Dorado County, and also Melissa’s close friend and lead designer at the shop has 15+ years of experience, giving the two of them 23 years total experience in design. Courtney also has 7 years’ experience of working in the wholesale side of flowers, giving her an even better understanding of the industry as well as an already established rapport with our local California growers.
The gallery in the front hosts a variety of artists and mediums, including photography, oils, watercolors, pottery, jewelry as well as some antiques. We are always looking for new artists, as the front of the shop is constantly evolving and changing with the seasons. We also teach flower design classes once to twice a month with an amazing group of students. Call or email us to inquire about our upcoming classes!
