Armstrong Flowers was founded by our parents, Herman and Helen Armstrong at the Armstrong homestead on East Cook Rd. in 1943. Dad wanted to keep his new bride happy, so he built Mom a small greenhouse and she began growing plants like her parents and grandparents had before her. That simple beginning grew into a multi-faceted floral, greenhouse, wedding and event business that our family owns and operates today. All of The Armstrong daughters have worked in the shop over the years and love working with flowers and plants each and every day.
The original shop consisted of a single greenhouse and office area surrounded by farm land and pastures. Over the years, the shop has grown to accomodate our customers full service floral needs from birth to sympathy memorials, from first dates to weddings and anniversaries. We truly appreciate talking with our customers who may be third generation customers. We enjoy hearing how "Mrs. A" made their parents wedding bouquets and how we made their own first prom corsages and are now creating their daughter's wedding flowers.
We are honored to be part of all those special times and make every effort to customize each arrangement for you. Our customer's tell us they appreciate the extra caring service we love to give them and their loved ones.
We believe that flowers and plants bring nature into our living spaces. As society spends more and more time indoors with technology, it is even more important to keep in touch with the living world around us. Flowers and plants offer that reconnection and make any day a very special day. We have customers come in often to walk through the greenhouse and visit with our plant experts about what plants they enjoy.
