The English Garden is our go-to for all of our floral needs! What pairs perfectly with a fresh coat of paint in the interior of your home or office? A floral arrangement from English Garden! Our teams have created a weekly process that makes ordering from them seamless. They are supporters of small businesses in the community and we appreciate them for that! So this month we would like to share a little bit more about them.

Who They Are:
The English Garden Raleigh NC Florist is locally owned and operated by Cydney Davis-English, a third-generation florist, and her award-winning team. You can find the EG team at their studio in Raleigh creating gorgeous flowers for weddings, events and daily celebrations to be delivered throughout the area including Raleigh, Cary, Morrisville, Durham, Chapel Hill, and Wake Forest. The English Garden opened in 2006 and quickly emerged as one of the favorite Raleigh florists. They can truly do it all! The arrangements they have created for EYP and our clients are always so gorgeous.

EYP and English Garden

How the Relationship Formed:
“My husband Warren and I met Richard at a Shop Local Raleigh event this past spring. I’m on the board of SLR and was the board member at the table in charge of talking about the organization. This conversation led to a discussion on collaboration among local businesses and from that we started working together. It probably didn’t hurt that we provided the flowers for the event so that Richard could also see our work.” – Cydney Davis-English, owner-operator of The English Garden

Our Process:
The process formed when Richard reached out to EG about starting weekly flower gifts for EYP customers. “He worked with a member of our design staff, Venetia, to create a signature bouquet featuring branded marketing pieces from the company. She’s worked with other corporate clients to develop unique flower or plant gifts that balance both their design and budget expectations so she was a natural fit for this project.” – Cydney Davis-English

On a weekly basis, Morgan works directly with Richard to process client orders. She then coordinates the design and delivery of these orders with the EG team to ensure everything is executed in a timely, professional and beautiful manner. The emphasis is on showcasing the EYP logo and any marketing piece included in a flower arrangement that would have broad appeal to our clients. “This has been a wonderful partnership and it has truly been a pleasure to work with Richard and EYP. They have allowed us to be creative and it has been an honor to make beautiful arrangements for their clients.” Morgan Modaff – Sales and Logistics Coordinator

“I think this collaboration is an excellent example of how small businesses can work together to support each other and keep revenue on “Main Street.” This partnership has led to EYP contracting with the other company I own, Two Maids & A Mop, for cleaning services and to our staff (my family included) selecting EYP for painting needs. Like most consumers, we frequently buy things from big box stores or from online retailers like Amazon, but our top priority is always to keep it local. The economic power of that in our community really can’t be measured. We sincerely appreciate EYP joining us in this mission and entrusting us with their client recognition gifts. And I’m looking forward to a freshly painted kitchen!” – Cydney Davis-English
