LANSING, Ill. (August 16, 2018) – Tiny’s Flowers owner Tiny Noble welcomes a floral design challenge. Whether she is arranging an heirloom mother-of-pearl Bible into a cascading bridal bouquet or tinting roses a perfect Tiffany blue, Noble strives to personalize her silk and fresh floral creations with that “Wow factor.” “People work hard for their money,” she stresses. “They should get what they want.”
Tiny’s Flowers officially opened its Torrence Avenue doors with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 27 of this year. Noble had researched places to move her online floral business to a brick and mortar store, and she ultimately chose Lansing because it earned, what she calls, a “Badge of Acceptance.” Noble explains, “Lansing is diverse, multi-cultural, accepting, and something is always going on!”
Tiny has big plans for the coming months. She is planning a mini bridal showcase October 12, a promotional presentation that will give local brides-to-be the red carpet treatment and an understanding of the diverse bridal services Tiny’s Flowers has to offer. Future brides who sign up for a package will be offered an exclusive complimentary Tiny bridal bouquet.
Noble has also begun working on the “Thanksgiving Warms the Hearts of Seniors” event in which she plans to present floral creations to 300 local senior citizens through local churches and nursing homes. As of this writing, she has received 120 donated vases for this community event.
Next year she hopes to offer an internship to any local high school student interested in learning hands-on about the floral design business. Noble maintains a Tiny’s Flowers II Facebook page and a website to keep everyone current on her plans, creations, and products.
Tiny’s Flowers is open 364 days of the year, closing only on January 1. (Noble says that is the day “You will find me in church to pray the new year in and the old year out.”) Visitors and customers will often find Tiny’s family and friends helping at the shop as well—her sisters Sonya and Gia, her mother (who nicknamed her Tiny because “I was the tiniest and the bossiest”), her best friend Angela, and her faithful beagle Daisy.
Tiny’s Flowers is located at 18055 Torrence Avenue in Lansing, Illinois. The shop is open daily from 9:00am–6:00pm. Visit www.tinys-flowers.com or call 708-394-3661 for information about fresh and silk flower arrangements, Papyrus recycled greeting cards, Bridgewater candles, and more.
