When I was young, growing up in a Latino community, my passion blossomed from my enjoyment of the preparation and design that goes into many types of events: birthday parties, flowers for weddings and balloons to bring in the new year. Looking back and reflecting over the years that I’ve been in business, there isn’t a single occasion that’s occurred for which I have not designed unique and personalized celebrations.
Fresh flowers and natural plant products (nothing artificial) are central to what I offer. Not only do flowers radiate happiness, they can draw all good things towards you: the memory of a sunny day, the time spent in your grandmother’s garden, a visit to the cemetery and ultimately, the preciousness of time. I select only flowers and natural products of the highest quality to create memorable moments for you that will reflect your expression of love and joy or condolences and thanks. All of my floral creations are unique (not pre-packaged or warehouse arranged) and are hand-made to convey your personalized expression.
I personally select all gift items at Beno’s based on the quality of the materials and the uniqueness of the objects. I seek gifts that are handmade and sustainable, both socially and environmentally. My hope is that you will find that gift that shares your message of love, friendship and happiness. My unique gifts will make that special occasion memorable and reflect your personalized expression.
My mission is happiness through flowers and gifts. And my goal is that you will find that here at Beno’s. Please take your time as you browse my website or stop by the shop and say hello at 107 E. Iowa Ave, in Iowa City.
