After running an online floral design and delivery company for six years, local florist Amanda Bowman opened her own storefront March 22 at 7626 Fry Road, Ste. 400, Cypress.

The shop specializes in one-of-a-kind posey arrangements and delivery. Bowman said she and her team visit a local flower wholesaler every week to handpick the flowers used in arrangements, which she said is meant to ensure the quality, variety and uniqueness of each piece.


"Each and every posey is made up of fresh, seasonal flowers and artfully wrapped in pretty paper," Bowman said. "Though we have my favorite florals, the posies are never the same twice."

All arrangements are made in house and designed by Bowman, who said she does not replicate designs from other designers.

Customers can order one-time deliveries or sign up for a subscription service. The shop also offers design arrangements for weddings, special events, and sympathy and bereavement, and it can customize arrangements for other occasions. In addition, the shop features artisanal pieces made by Houston artists, including candles, jewelry and home decor, among other items. 832-427-1372. www.amandabeefloral.com
