Tucked away in quaint Goffstown, New Hampshire you’ll find Apotheca Flowers; a floral studio/cafe hybrid where a team of talented souls create floral works of art and a cup of Joe that’ll tantalize your taste buds…
1. How did Apotheca Flowers come to be?
Apotheca Flowers was born of necessity and a desire to create a space that was uplifting and inspiring for people. I opened during a time in my life when I found myself at a crossroads with two young children and jumping in head first was my only option. Life is short, and it’s so important to quest for Eden while we are here. Beauty matters and an inspired object can bring so much joy into a space- and flowers are certainly one of life’s most powerful objects of beauty. They communicate beyond words and impact the human spirit in unparalleled ways.
2. Do you offer services beyond floral design?
We offer plant installations, creative workshops, and a gorgeous gift gallery, as well as a rotating art gallery. Our space is also home to a café. Community involvement is a hugely important to us, and nothing nurtures community like an offering of fellowship over poured cups and filled plates.
3. What is currently trending in floral design?
Movement!! We can’t get enough of rambling imperfection and finding design balance in unexpected ways. Also, large installations and color juxtaposed with tones that ooze historical elegance.
4. What flowers are in season right now?
We buy locally as much as possible in late summer and early to mid-autumn….mixing local blooms with flowers from all over the world creates such rich, dynamic colors and textures to work with. Currently we are playing with dahlias, zinnias, grasses and all sorts of seed pods like scabiosa and milkweed and, of course, garden roses. New Zealand peonies are arriving now and in a few weeks Chilean, which we are so excited about!
5. How far are you willing to travel to provide your services?
We travel anywhere! This year found us in Rhode Island, Maine, Connecticut, Nantucket, Boston, New York, Vermont, and our own beloved New Hampshire. We are always up for adventure and unique story telling through color, texture, and design!
