Local Westchester florist Joseph Edwards has operated Graceland Florist (located on 527 Gramatan Avenue in Mount Vernon, New York) for over 23 years!
As a 1-800-Flowers.com franchise shop, Joseph is partaking in the 1-800-Flowers.com Local Exclusive program where his unique designs can be ordered right online through 1800flowers.com when a gift giver is looking for flowers in the Mount Vernon, NY area.
Luckily for us, Joseph took the time to discuss some of his favorite Local Exclusive flower arrangements along with interesting florist experiences, to tell us what makes them so special!
How did you get into the flower business and what do you love best about being a florist?
Ever since walking home after school at age eleven, I knew that I loved the flowers business. What I love most is bringing smiles to customer faces; everyone is always so happy to receive, plants, or a fruit bouquet.
