Every year I contemplate this whole Mother’s Day thing. I own a gift shop, so needless to say it is an important occasion for my business. I, however, am a person who loves celebrating all of life’s moments–big and little. This holiday is easier to understand when you have a close relationship with your mom, […]

Building a team isn’t easy, but the reward is amazing. Of course, a big part of Daisy’s is having such a lovely large group of dedicated customers, and we are grateful for them. The secret sauce, however, is in the team of people I work with. Retail isn’t a career many people train for, it […]

The holidays for most are a combination of magic, excitement, maybe a little stress, and of course spending time with loved ones.

Daisy’s will always and forever be defined as an experience. Over-the-top displays, hundreds of candles, and of course, music, all create the romance and magic of being a Daisy’s customer. As my days fill with paperwork, I miss the swoons and singalongs of our playlists on a daily basis. While I may be lucky enough […]

Well, I have had a bit of time to reflect on Daisy’s 16th birthday. For me, my work/life balance is a bit different as there is a very fuzzy line between the two. Making my home pretty, planning amazing party details, and making sure the gifts I give have a story behind them are things […]

Hey Everybody! I think everyone has gotten to the point where they miss people now, and I am no exception. I miss the bright smiles of wanderers who venture into Daisy’s for the first time, the warm hugs of my dearest friends, and my lovely staff who make everyday at the shop an adventure. This […]
