Natalie Gilliland, a seasoned florist, is happy to announce the grand opening of Poppies Flower Shop at its brand new location at The Shops at Norterra. In fact, the new location just opened on September 1. Poppies Flower Shop has previously specialized in weddings and special events, but Gilliland, the shop’s owner, has plans of creating a small town flower shop with a “farm to table” mindset – fresh, local, and good for the soul.

“My inspiration with Poppies is to create an experience for my guests,” she says. “I love all the flower shops in Europe, so I want people to come in and feel like they are strolling through one of those shops. No two bouquets will ever be alike and we want it that way at Poppies. Our tagline is ‘Unique Designs, Fresh Florals, Happiness Handpicked’ and that’s what you will find in our shop. Guests can select from individual, fresh-cut flowers along with one-of-a-kind hand-wrapped bouquets, succulents, a garden section, and handmade gifts created by local artisans. We also offer in-store classes and workshops where our guests can learn how to create their own flower arrangements and spark their inner creativity, while having a ton of fun.”

The experienced designers at Poppies Flower Shop also create pre-designed arrangements for special events, weddings, large events, corporate events, and those “just because” occasions. “We literally get to bring joy to people for a living with pretty things and a whole lot of Diet Coke,” says Gilliland.

Poppies Flower Shop is located at 2450 W. Happy Valley Road, Suite 1147, in Phoenix. Check them out at or connect with them on Facebook @poppiesflowershop for more information.

As a locally owned Phoenix-based business, Poppies Flower Shop prides itself on being a hometown florist with a small town feel. The antique, European-inspired shop will provide guests with an experience unlike anything else in the flower industry – Fresh Florals, Unique Designs, and Happiness Handpicked.
