Fisher's Petals & Posies
Fisher's Petals & Posies is a family business started in the fall of 2012. Kenneth & Joanne Fisher purchased a building in downtown Missouri Valley, IA with the intention of opening a flower and gift shop with me, their daughter Minnie in January 2013. The building needed what we thought were a "few" renovations to adapt it to our needs. After a massive renovation with the help of a local contractor and many local subcontractors, we were able to officially open March 19, 2013.
Joanne had over 20 years of experience in the craft and gift industry and I had 27 years of customer service experience in the automotive industry with a knack for floral and design work on the side. It was a neat feeling to 'come home' and open up a retail shop and contribute to the community in which I was raised. Now looking back, I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to do this in my home town!
Since opening the doors in 2013, Minnie has successfully completed the Iowa Master Florist Program with the Iowa Florist Association which was nearly a 2 year process of classes of both written tests and hands on presentations in which pieces were both times and judged. Also Minnie has been elected and serves on the Board of Directors now for the Iowa Florists Association. In 2015 and now also in 2016, Minnie has had to great opportunity to assist fellow board members by decorating the Iowa Governor's Mansion in Des Moines, IA. This year, 2016 has Minnie decorating 2 rooms at the mansion - Music Room and Library. Check out the photos on Facebook after November 18th!
