In celebration of Valentine’s Day, Verde Floral Design is our merchant spotlight for the month of February.
Verde Floral Design is a Cape Cod florist creating custom designs for weddings, events, businesses & homes. They carry unique gifts, vessels & indoor plants. Verde Floral Designs is located at 19 Fountain Street in Mashpee Commons, and they are currently offering curbside pickup and delivery service. Verde’s mission is simple: Create joyful experiences for others through beautiful floral arrangements.
Hira Rafiq – the new owner of Verde – shared with us how she got started at the shop and where she plans to take the businesses moving forward.
Back in May 2018, Hira was studying for her GREs and wandered into Verde looking for a part-time job. As her passion for flowers and the business grew, she transitioned into a management position at the shop. In December of 2020, her role transitioned again, this time as the owner of Verde. As she looks toward the future – when gatherings are safe again – Hira plans to launch Verde’s private Floral Arrangement classes for groups of up to 15, either at the shop or private residence closeby. This is a great activity baby/bridal showers, birthday parties and get-togethers. Hira also plans to host an open house at the shop to celebrate her new role and to give clients a chance to get to know her.
Verde is a woman of color-owned business, with Hira being a first-generation child to Pakistani parents. Hira is proud to be the first woman in her immediate and extended family to own a business and is setting an example for her nieces to show what they can accomplish when they grow up.
Verde has some beautiful new vessels, specifically for Valentine’s Day. Find more information at verdeflorals.com or by visiting them on social media. (February 2021)
