Blue Ivy Flowers, located off of Georgia Avenue in Downtown Chattanooga,, is running five specials for Valentine’s Day.

Blue Ivy is a full service flower shop that works to design the perfect arrangement for their client.

Blue Ivy is one of the few floral shops in the area that do not do Teleflora arrangements. Every bouquet that Blue Ivy creates is individualized and unique rather than being a generic arrangement.

As Valentine’s Day creeps closer, orders are flying in. They currently have dozens of orders, but are expecting even more as Valentine’s Day grows closer.

Last year, there were roughly 200 orders placed for delivery for Feb. 14.

Blue Ivy is ready to go and recently received an order of over 1600 roses in preparation for the big day.

Brittany Lockwood, Blue Ivy florist, said, “We work around the budget of the flower buyer to create an arrangement that best meets their needs in their order.”

Dale Wilson, master florist, is passionate about flowers and making sure that each client is overly satisfied.

Blue Ivy offers a “text a photo” service, where the florists will text a photo of the arrangement to the client prior to delivery.

Blue Ivy Flowers is located on 826 Georgia Avenue, Chattanooga, Tennessee. Pricing information and more is available on their website at blueivyflowers.com.
