A stylish and cozy flower shop recently opened up on Tenth Street, sporting coolers with colourful bouquets and flowers.

Owner Lorinda VanderHeide says she is excited to open “Blooming Arrangements” because she loves flowers.

“I love to do flowers, so why not just do flowers as your job?

“Do what you love, right?” she said.

Even as a kid she says she always liked arranging flowers.

Blooming Arrangements sells tied bouquets, vases, and custom flower designs,

and they will supply flowers for weddings, funerals, birthdays and any other type of events.

“We’re up for any kind of challenge,” VanderHeide said.

Blooming Arrangements has been a home-based business since last January, and VanderHeide says it was hard.

“It’s awkward for people getting flowers: they don’t always know if you have flowers and it’s just too much confusion,” she said.

“But everything that happened with my business helped me get here,” she said, adding that she built up some valuable knowledge through those difficult times.

Because of the challenges she faced as a home-based business, VanderHeide says wants to help other home-based businesses in town.

She put up a bulletin board in the corner of her shop for home-based business to use for advertising.

“I’m hoping that home-based businesses will put their stuff on there and I can be their voice, because it’s really hard [being home-based],” she said.

VanderHeide says Blooming Arrangements is open Tuesday to Saturday, and will have an official grand opening in January.
