Join me as I speak to Mr. and Mrs. Primak in their shop, while enjoying the colorful array of flowers and the heavenly scent of Paradise.

business man with flowersHow did you get into this business?

Mrs. P: We started by arranging flowers as a hobby. We wanted to help our community; we both like to be involved in others’ simchahs. Until this very day, we love our business, because it makes people happy. Knowing that we can contribute to others’ shalom bayis by having our flowers on Shabbos and Yom Tov tables gives us great satisfaction. Even when we work on Get Well Soon flowers, we are cheering others up. It’s also very rewarding when we help others create a wonderful chasunah or enhance a bar mitzvah with beautiful flowers. Many photographers say that flower arrangements can make a simple event very pretty
