WILLIAMSBURG — Williamsburg Floral celebrated its grand reopening and expansion on July 6 with a ribbon cutting at its new storefront in the James York Plaza.
Williamsburg Floral, a community business for 40 years, is owned and operated by Williamsburg native Elgin Morris. He and his team at Williamsburg Floral have a combined experience of more than 150 years.
Morris grew up surrounded by both horticulture and agriculture, including specialties in farming, greens keeping, and lumber. His family supported him when he decided to start Williamsburg Floral.
“[Williamsburg Floral] has been in business for over 40 years, and what that tells you is that they are doing something that they absolutely love to do, and the people, their customers, love what they’re doing too,” said York County Board of Supervisors Chairman, Thomas G. Shepperd.
“It couldn’t be done without my crew, who I really thank and appreciate every day. I wake up every day and thank God for that,” Morris said in his ribbon-cutting speech. “Without their support and knowledge and interest to learn things and to change we wouldn’t have been around as long as we have.”
With the expansion, Williamsburg Floral now offers paradise plants in addition to the floral arrangements the business has been known for. It will also be allowing customers the chance to come in and learn a little about flower arranging.
The grand reopening celebration runs through July 8. For more information about Williamsburg Floral and its various offerings for events and celebrations, visit its official webpage.
