Poppies and Peonies is a full-service florist that specializes in weddings and special events. They are also available for special deliveries, home florals, and parties. They offer Cocktails + Crowns parties in the shop or at a location of your choosing… you can bring your own drinks, invite your friends, and learn how to make fresh floral crowns!
The shop carries fresh flowers and succulents. You can bring your own vase, find a vase in the store, or carry your fresh-cut flowers home wrapped in brown paper and tied with string. You can also bring in a container or find a container for your succulents, which you can choose in-store and they will plant them for you!
We were able to visit with owner and lead designer, Michelle Donner:
What made you decide to start the flower bar?
Michelle Donner: I am passionate about the joy that flowers can bring! I know a lot of people that love flowers, but don’t know how to choose or arrange them. This is a great way for people to be able to enjoy fresh flowers and get a little help arranging them.
Where do you get the flowers from?
MD: I get the flowers from Lubbock Wholesale Florist in the Depot District. They are the nicest people I’ve ever met!
What is some general pricing?
MD: At the flower bar, customers pay by the stem. Prices range anywhere from $1 – $10. Most of the greenery is $1 per stem. Carnations are $2 per stem. Roses are $3 per stem. I often carry different, fun flowers like stock, spray roses, protea, and ranunculus.

Can people arrange their own in-store? Are you able to give mini lessons?
MD: If customers want to arrange their own, they can! I can also help them. We offer floral crown parties by appointment, but also hold workshops that you can register for through our website. Visit our website and follow us on Instagram.
