Stepping through the door of a flower shop can be enough to make a person breathe deeply and instantly relax. And it's only that much simpler to do so when you're greeted by Cynthia Purcell, owner of Cynthia's Flower Shop on Route 1 in Branford.

Opening in October of 1992, Purcell has been creating beautiful arrangements for her customers and many brides for more than 25 years. As floral trends evolve, Purcell stays ahead. Just like the flowers she arranges, no two brides are the same and she customizes to their style and likes.

"I carefully handle each flower order to ensure the freshest and most beautiful presentation for your loved one, or for yourself," says Purcell. "When you call Cynthia's, you will get someone on the line who understands flowers and will take special care in delivering your sentiment in the most artful and professional way."

Her sweet spirit and shop invite you in with the freshness and scents of a back-yard flower garden. Her creations and design abilities have turned many heads as she turns wedding venues into magical rooms of flowers and fragrance, be it arches for the wedding couple to stand under at beachside, or cedar poles adored with greens and roses softening the poles into a graceful frame for your special day. Having spent a life time working with fresh flowers, Cynthia's experience to know what will survive on the hottest day or freeze on the coldest gives a bride a little extra insurance that her flowers will still be beautiful in the photos by the end of the day. Working with flowers is an art. Knowing flowers, their habits, and their endurance is why it is important to use a professional for your special day.

Beyond weddings, Cynthia's offers a host of arrangements ready to be delivered or picked up for your dining room table, bedside, or for that special friend. Bouquets and plants fill the shop shelves, waiting for their chance to make someone's day brighter. Florists often joke that flowers have no calories, so they make the perfect gift! A bouquet is a great way to show your love or say a special thank you for a job well done.

"Please give us a call," says Purcell. "For more than 25 years, I have been arranging flowers for weddings, family events, funerals, and everyday occasions. We will be happy to assist you."
