Searching for a gift at the last minute? Want custom flowers for a special event? Looking for a new piece for the garden? CeCe’s Garden in White Rock has items that may just fit the bill.
Located at 126 Longview Drive, it is nestled in what was a bustling shopping center. Businesses have come and gone, but this flower shop still thrives in the community after 28 years in business.
Christie Kelly has owned the family run shop for 11 years. The staff of four consists herself, her husband Mickey — who does deliveries, daughter Tiffany — who helps with arrangements and orders, a son that is away at college in Albuquerque, and the shop cat, Jaspar, who overlooks the store.
The flower arrangements are custom-made for each customer’s needs. “We have many returning clients in the community and they know what they want,” Kelly said.
She helps the customer’s find flowers that will fit the venue. “I make sure the color schemes match the venue, so the arrangements stand out.” Kelly creates her own floral designs for each particular event.
CeCe’s Garden takes online orders at the website, CeCes.net. Kelly said she constantly is sending flowers to other states, and recently overseas to soldiers in Afghanistan. Kelly also takes phone orders.
