A congratulations delivered through flowers

To express love, gratitude, or pride, flowers may serve the purpose of showing loved ones how one feels about them, and with grad season approaching what better way to express those feelings than by giving beautiful flowers.   

Choosing the right type of flowers and gifts for graduates can be a difficult task and the number of choices people have on their hands can be overwhelming, but at Wine and Blooms, they make sure to find the perfect flowers for the perfect moment.   

Wine and Blooms El Paso Florist have been serving the El Paso community for 11 months, and in such a short amount of time, they have grown in the community.   

“We saw a need in the community for a place in which individuals could find a new and unique approach to traditional floral arrangements and flower shops,” said owner of Wine and Blooms Magaly Macias. “When I contemplated making a business, I truly focused on what I would like to see in my community.”   

In hopes to bring more flower culture appreciation into El Paso, Texas Wine and Blooms has taken a unique and different approach to floral arrangement by looking at the craft as form of art.   

“My vision was to bring different flowers from different parts of the world, I wanted to show my community different options and more high-end floral arrangements for a reasonable price,” Macias said.   

When it comes to inspiration, the shop closely looks at its community. At Wine and Blooms, local art is featured in the shop, allowing the community to explore art outside of floral arrangements.   

“We like to offer our customers the opportunity to discover and appreciate the creativity our local artists have because there are a lot of talented people in this community,” Macias said.   

 Different colors, shapes and textures of flowers have also inspired florists at Wine and Blooms.  

“When you look at a flower it gives you an emotion, or it transmits something into your heart, and the inspiration comes through our customer’s stories and experiences,” Macias said.   

With grad season approaching, Wine and Blooms has seen an increase in work and business.   

“Throughout graduation season, we definitely see an influx of work, because our customers seek floral bouquets and gifts to celebrate the accomplishments of our grad students, and of course, it gets really busy during those times,” Macias said when asked about grad season.  

For Macias providing these gifts and experiences to customers is truly what holds the business together.  Macias feels serving her community is what brings her happiness.   

“It is truly gratifying, and it fills me with a sense of pride and purpose to bring joy, beauty, and unique offerings to people in my community, and connecting with them through our flowers and art, it creates meaningful bonds with them, it fulfills me and my team,” Macias said.    

As the day where graduates cross the stage gets closer, it is time to start thinking about a gift for them that would be meaningful and at Wine and Bloom’s, they will get more than just flowers.
