I love a good charming flower shop.
Nothing like fresh cut flowers in the home...it's one of those little luxuries I enjoy in life. My longtime good friend, Shawn, AKA the Dame, of the Capital Street Duo I speak of, is a very talented and creative floral designer and has had his hand at it now for many years. After all this time of creating florals and events for weddings and public spaces, he finally decided to open his own shop. The catch. The shop was finished, but then the pandemic came and he was never able to open because of the mandatory shut down. Luckily, being in downtown Harrisburg, and a tight knit community, he was able to get some business for the Easter and Mother's Day holidays. But I'm happy to say he has been finally able to open for business and I wish well on this new part of his journey. On my trip home, I was able to stop in and have a tour and pick up a few things. I have used him for years to make the dinner arrangements for my aunt's Easter and Thanksgiving dinners. It wouldn't be a dinner without one of Shawn's masterpieces.
The shop, Paper Moon Flowers, is located in downtown Harrisburg and much needed, as there were no flower shops left to my knowledge . The shop turned out stunning and very charming I must say. Not only does he offer many beautiful fresh stems, but he also offers a bit of everything....silks, candles, incense, home gift items, hostess gifts, and soon, a selection of bath luxuries. Everything is so beautifully displayed too. If you don't see the fresh flowers you want, he can get anything for you , you require.
The flowers I get from him are always top quality, and last for a good long time. If you need an arrangement, his work is always different, not your run of the mill humdrum arrangements. You'll get a out of the box, creative, and stunning work of art that will exceed your expectations. Whether your getting an arrangement or just a few fresh stems, Shawn takes care to wrap them nicely, and gives everything an extra touch of attention to little details...which one just doesn't see anymore. Last time home, I picked up his incense, and does it ever scent the house nicely!
I know I have a few readers and friends who read my blog in Harrisburg, so if you live there or are passing through town, be sure to stop in at Paper Moon Flowers and tell him the Mistress Borghese sent you. You won't be disappointed. The shop is located at 916 North Third Street, Harrisburg PA. Hours are Tuesday- Friday 10am-3pm and Saturday 10am- Noon. Private appointment times are also available upon request. Shawn also offers no contact floral delivery for your convenience and peace of mind. Remember...
shop local, and shop small!!!!
