35 years ago, Bea and Jon Miller, purchased a business in a vintage building in Hope Valley Farms that at one point had been a farm house, and founded Floral Dimensions. Inspired by the beauty of their life in the Netherlands, where they were surrounded by flowers every day, they built one of the oldest and most respected flower shops and businesses in Durham, North Carolina.
Over the years they were joined by some very talented people with expertise in every part of the plant world, from highly respected horticulturalists to accredited award winning floral designers. Today, our highly trained staff includes 3 designers, 2 Durham floral delivery drivers and a sales associate. Our arrangements are sought out by the Washington Duke Inn, The Chancellor of Duke and the best Durham wedding planners. We’ve curated thriving relationships with local growers who send us dozens of bucketfuls of beautiful stems every day. We’re immensely proud of to be on the top of so many must have lists for the swankiest Durham social events.
Our best moments, though, are the ones with the clients who walk into our shop and order flowers for every stage of life. We’ve seen them as they head off on first dates, and pick up floral arrangements before they head off to propose marriage. We’re there when they plan their weddings, welcome their first grandchild, and when loved ones are no longer with them. We bring beauty, happiness, and comfort to every life event just when people need it, and this is our greatest satisfaction.
There’s a quote that runs around the internet telling us that it’s not work if you do what you love. We recognize that not everyone get the opportunity to do what they love for a living. At the risk of sounding overly sentimental, we understand that it’s a privilege to get out of bed every morning, head into the shop and handcraft beauty and happiness and then send it out to the people of Durham, NC and beyond.
Thank you to all who’ve made this possible.
