Registration is now open for 2019 NP Red & Black Bash. This is a fun evening that raises
money to help enhance our school’s educational opportunities and
extracurricular activities. The North Polk Fundraising Organizations – Fine
Arts Boosters, Athletic Boosters, North Polk Schools Foundation – have
joined forces since 2009 to host this wonderful event which has raised just
under $400,000 for North Polk Schools!

Tickets are $45 per person. You can also reserve a table for eight for $420
(which includes one drink ticket per person and preferential seating). Please
note the instructions on the site for registering for a table.

Join us on Saturday, March 30 at the FFA Enrichment Center in Ankeny for a
night of entertainment, dinner, games and auctions.

There is online bidding for the auction again this year. If you are unable
to attend, you can still bid on items starting March 23. You don’t need to
be present at NP Red & Black Bash to win.

Good afternoon!

You may have all heard by now that after more than 10.5 years owning our Polk City business, 5+ of those years in our studio on the square, Michelle & I have decided NOT to renew our lease in the Centre after May 31st – to pursue other career goals.

The ever-evolving wedding business, personal life changes, as well as the desire to make more money all played in to our very difficult & thought out decision.

Michelle and I wanted to take a moment to get in touch with all of you to thank those of you who became our loyal clients over the last 10 years – whether you made only one or a few purchases from us, or gave us repeat floral or wedding business….you mean the world to us!

We also wanted to thank our business community; even if you didn’t have the chance to do business with us, we appreciate you for supporting us through referrals, encouragement, mentorship & your own goods & services. We will continue to keep our loyalty to your businesses as often as we can.

Michelle & I would like you to know that between now & through the week of May 20th, we will be open for business as usual, creating beautiful fresh floral bouquets for delivery or pick up, custom silk/permanent arrangements, boutonnières & corsages, wedding & event flowers as well as offering our luscious indoor & outdoor plants!

We are extending our pre-order cooler weather outdoor plants offer through this week for pick up the week before Easter – prices will go up after the pre-sale:
Hydrangeas $29
Daisies $14
Ivy $14
Pansies (contact us for price)
** Or we will provide installation in your own outdoor planters for $95/ea. including plants & top soil.

We hope to fill these last 10 weeks with tons of orders to end our journey with record sales!

Text either of us & we will help you with your order.😊

Working side-by-side with my bestie all these years has been priceless & our friendship will continue to flourish even after we lock our door the last day.❤️
