Hello! Today’s blog…well, it’s all about US! We’re a family-owned, small flower shop, that does it all. From large funerals, to small weddings, and everything in-between; we love what we do, AND we deliver that love all around the Twin Cities! (We may be located in Anoka, but we have no problem driving to Newport, Farmington, Forest Lake, Monticello, or anywhere in-between.) Anyway, we figured it’s about time you get to see who you’re actually dealing with when you choose Main Floral as your florist. We’re a small, but passionate, group of creatives who come together, daily, to hand craft the best for you, and your loved ones. We work out of the old State Bank of Anoka building which has been around for close to 100 years. (We even still use the old vault–it just stores balloons now.) Our shop is full of creaks, crumbles, and character(s). 😉
(And, here we are now–with the yellow and green awning, right next to the candy shop.)
All of the photos of us (below) have a brief description of what we do around the shop–though, all of us do more than what’s listed. (Everyday brings a new challenge and adventure around this place. 🙂 ) All of us also help out with Sweet River, our sister store aka: the little candy shop next door. When things are really busy around the shop–it isn’t uncommon to see Steve’s daughters, or Dawn’s kids, and/or husband, in helping out too.
(*We have one staff whom isn’t pictured here yet…Steve is our other great driver. This will be updated as soon as we get their photos.)

Now that you got to see what we all look like–take a quick peak into the shop.

(Above. Here are a couple of ‘in the back’ shots. This is where all the action takes place.)
(Above: Not to be forgotten…here’s a shot of the candy shop, Sweet River! It may be little…but, it’s loaded!)
