Atwood Florist

Festive wreaths on sale at this popular florist shop in Johnston


There is something about a wreath hanging on a front door, or on that perfect spot in a family room, that signifies “You are welcome here”!  Wreaths, with their colorful flowers and festive bows, or their understated, simple elegance, actually have great symbolism.  Traditionally, wreaths ~ or floral garlands ~ symbolize honor or celebration.  Some lore even suggests they represent that a victory was achieved in the household upon whose door they hang.  Whatever their symbolism, wreaths of spring flowers are always a breath of fresh air! 

This year, with the specter of Covid-19 still lingering, John Dick, the owner of Atwood Florist, canceled his annual Spring wreath-making workshops. Because these workshops were so popular, John and his talented, longtime assistant Teddy decided to build a series of silk flower wreaths to sell instead.  Now that spring is here and you have tossed away your worn-out winter wreaths, why not pick up one of these cheerful creations at Atwood Florist? John is offering them, right before Easter, in a week-long sale (at rock-bottom prices)!  Call or visit the shop to see some of the various styles and floral combinations now available.

Along with these beautiful wreaths, the celebration of the Christian holiday Easter remains a busy time for flower and flowering plant lovers everywhere. While our gatherings may be more modest these days, Easter gatherings are more important than ever ~ and a striking centerpiece, made by John, can elevate any tablescape.  Using seasonal flowers like tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, pansies, violets (and more of your favorites), John will create a cheerful, classic and showstopping arrangement for your holiday meal ~ or just to bring happiness and comfort to a loved one.

No one knows more about the happiness and comfort that flowers can bring than John Dick who has been a florist for over 25 years.  For his hundreds of customers, John is the one person they can depend on to create a fanciful arrangement of flowers for a party, to put together a corsage for a mother-of-the-bride, to assemble several floral displays for a funeral or to gather an overflowing bouquet of roses for Mother’s Day.  His love of flowers is surpassed only by his genuine affection for his customers, many of whom have been with him since his earliest years.   

John can do just about anything you need to make your day special, from his $5.00 “Love Bunches” to his full spread of custom-made centerpieces to his Spring wreaths! 

There is hardly an occasion that cannot be improved with the gift of flowers.  As you prepare for the upcoming events of Easter (Sunday, April 4th) and Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 9th), be sure to plan ahead!  Give Atwood Florist a call today!
