Step inside The Little Flower Shop and you’ll instantly be transported to a winter wonderland.
The locally owned shop—opened in 2014 by Leslie Brett and Chuck Matney—offers a full range of florist services, including pre-made bouquets and arrangements so you can grab and go.
The shop is also a treasure trove of gifts, décor, housewares, and select apparel, just to start. You’ll no doubt find the perfect addition to your home’s Christmas décor among a stunning selection of tabletop trees, ornaments, festive garlands—even authentic German nutcrackers!
“We have a little bit of everything,” Brett says.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. An important holiday is quickly approaching—Thanksgiving! At The Little Flower Shop, you’ll find a display of Thanksgiving tabletop and other décor just inside the door. Pick up a package of festive napkins, a fragrant candle, or a throw pillow. Or treat yourself to a snuggly black sweater with “Thankful” in white script on the front. Pair with jean or leggings and a pair of statement earrings for effortless style that’s perfect for a day of feasting.
As you enjoy your Thanksgiving leftovers, your thoughts will likely turn to holiday gifts. You can find something for everyone at The Little Flower Shop. Kiddos will love puzzles and other toys. Treat the dapper gentleman in your life to a silk tie or pocket square. Or give your BFF some cozy self-care with posh loungewear or a pair of Christmas pajamas.
The Little Flower Shop has a wide range of gifts that could easily be assembled to create your own gift packages for friends, family, or coworkers. Pair a scented candle with a plush pair of socks, for example. Grab a box of Christmas crackers to use at place settings or as stocking stuffers. The bibliophile in your life will love The Little Flower Shop’s eclectic assortment of books. Or opt for a genuine Scottish plaid scarf, the perfect accessory for bundling up beside a roaring fire.
There’s no denying that Leslie and Chuck have a keen eye for gifts that surprise and delight. That’s just one reason they expanded the gift section of The Little Flower Shop in 2017. This year, when supporting local businesses and bringing happiness to others are more important than ever, The Little Flower Shop’s team is committed to delivering a safe and enjoyable shopping experience.
“It’s so much more fun to browse and buy in the store than shopping online,” Leslie says.
For shoppers who still may be hesitant to visit during store hours, Leslie says they’ll work with customers to schedule private shopping sessions before or after hours.
With a prime location on a quiet street in Westwood, just minutes from the Plaza, it’s easy to make a day of it when shopping at The Little Flower Shop. Fuel up for your adventure with a caffeinated beverage at Hi-Hat Coffee, quite possibly the cutest coffee shop in Kansas City. (It’s in a little cottage!) Then, stroll a block of locally owned businesses that includes The Little Flower Shop, Annedore’s Fine Chocolates and JSH, a recently opened home-goods boutique.
The Little Flower Shop offers an astounding array of gifts, and that includes flowers. Order a holiday-themed arrangement and surprise a friend. There’s still time to order Thanksgiving arrangements and centerpieces, too. Your Thanksgiving celebration may be different this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pull out all the stops to entertain a small group or a party of two. And for that person who seems impossible to shop for? Flowers work every time!
“Floral arrangements or bouquets are always a safe gift,” Leslie says. “Everybody loves flowers!”
