Pires Flower Basket - Pires Florist

A  FESTIVAL  OF  TREES

When my sister and I visit our father,
there's one place we MUST go . . .


Pires Flower Basket

Let me take you on a tour.
There will be lots of "ooooooo's" ~ "ahhhhhhh's"
and "WoW's!
When harvest-time is over,
the greenhouse begins to take on a holiday flair.



They really go all out
decorating each tree and table.
I love the red cardinals on the frosty greens.


These FUN displays will put a BIG Christmas smile on your face!

Pire's 5

Every shelf is filled with joy

There's a wreath on every door ~ and a ribbon on every bough
Pire's 2

Around every corner,
you'll see another Christmas surprise
~ a Winter Wonderland ~


If you're in central New York, stop in Pires Flower Basket in Norwich.
You'll plan for 10 minutes but then stay an hour!

You'll go home with flowers, ornaments, a decorated boxwood tree (with lights)
and a lemon cheesecake soy candle!A piece of Norwich pottery
And an adorable little winter friend to sit on your desk.
This lil' snowgirl came home with me.
Which one woud you choose?

~Happy Weekend Wanderings to You~

You gotta love places like this, don't you? They make me want to move in! Seems like you captured the essence well with your lovely photos!

Good choice you made Maria, I would have chosen a snowman to add to my small collection too, there seem to be many lovely ones to choose from! You've got me anxious to decorate!

Diana said...

ooooo, ahhhh, WoW ! Yes I can understand why you'd stay an hour. I too liked the tree with the cardinals
in it. Very nice. We have a place here that I like to go to. The entire half of the store has Christmas crafting items. I can't pull myself away!
Love Di

I am beginning to feel that Christmas spirit Maria! What a beautiful shop. I think you made wonderful purchases. I honestly would have picked out the little snowman too. I have a fondness for them. They are just too cute.
Have a blessed weekend.

Well - good thing I'm not close to Norwich! Lemon Cheesecake candle - sounds like dessert! Those wreaths make me think my old, faded one might have to be replaced this year. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in your world!

Just found your wonderful blog...FAB! FAB! FAB!

Hi Maria - Funny you ask about the peel of the orange - I debated that, too - perhaps we ARE cut from the same (cooking) cloth? I grated a bit of the peel but then took it off before putting the orange and wet ingredients in the cusinart. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! (Are you cooking?????) Have a restful break from school.

Maria said...

Hi Maria, what a lovely winter wonderland you have visited! Thank you for your visit on my blog, my weekend was peaceful and really nice (in the afternoon we watched the third part of Lord of the Rings on our really big new flatscreen :)
Have a nice week,hugs, Maria

Hi Once More, Maria, We will be on the road for Thanksgiving. Our grown children are on their own for the feast this year. Lucinda is somewhat miffed - we have reservations for Bob's Birthday dinner, and she noticed there is Rabbit on the menu!

koralee said...

Oh Maria thank you for your comments. I did not find my frother but only spent a wee amount of time looking so next trip out I will continue...I know I will have one my Christmas! xoxox

Amanda said...

oh wow mom!!! this brings a large smile to my face!!! I can't wait for Christmas, as we all know, since I set up my tree before Halloween :P looks like you had a great time!

Marg said...

I've never been in a place like that. It's beautiful. It must of been so much fun.
I ready your blog on Geese...That is one amazing nugget. I have ofen used that when teaching or presenting workshops etc. I love it.
It is so true...

Farmgirl Cyn said...

Yes...I would be hours in a place like this! Even my local Lowes keeps me mesmerized!
I think my favorite is the cardinal tree. (But I would take any of it!!!)

Dianne said...

Maria, what a tour that was. I just loved it and will come back again when I have a little more time to invest--son and family came in from Oklahoma today so we are having a wonderful time with them. Hope your holiday is half as special as you are . Sure wish we were next door neighbors. Love, D.

Carrie said...

I LOVE the gingerbread tree. So cute. Looks like this is the place to go to get ideas... so many fun things to inspire me!

Vicki said...

Hello, dear Maria,
I can see why you and your sister make a special visit to this wonderful store. I love the traditional Christmas decor of bright reds and greens! Everything has brought a smile to my face and put me in a festive holiday mood. Thank you so much! I hope you and your family have a blessed Thanksgiving! Vicki
