The flower experts at City Line Florist, Trumbull’s best florist, wanted to spotlight an important woman from our own history for Women’s History Month and show how her contributions have made a positive impact on our business. We’re also divulging the favorite flower of a few famous women known around the world and how those flowers reflect their personality.
Susan and Nicole Palazzo
Susan and Nicole Palazzo are a 3rd and 4th generational mother daughter duo. Susan is co-owner of City Line Florist, and she and Nicole have been working in the business since they were little girls. They both have fond memories of watching their grandfathers work in the greenhouse at a young age.
Susan and Nicole are a fantastic team together and are continuously looking to better City Line florist. They travel the country to flower farms, and Society of American Florists conventions to learn about new trends in the industry finding the best flowers on the market.
This year alone, we have rebranded our new logo for a modern look, and the girls picked out new flooring and painted the inside of our rustic barn to cool greys.
Susan is the bookkeeper amongst many other things and keeps the shop running smoothly, while Nicole is in charge of our website, our second shop, and social media!
Susan is a strong female owner and is admired in the floral industry and most certainly admired within our employees.
Audrey Hepburn – Lily of the Valley
Audrey Hepburn was one of Hollywood’s most graceful and iconic actresses. Later in her life, she devoted herself to doing humanitarian work in poor nations. She was known for her fashion sense and skills as a leading lady on screen. It’s not surprising her favorite flower was the elegant and regal Lily of the Valley. Symbolizing hope, purity, sweetness, and grace, this flowering plant is often used in religious ceremonies and celebrations.
Lady Bird Johnson – Lavender Bluebell
“Where flowers bloom and so does hope…” claimed Lady Bird Johnson, along with it was a declaration she lived by. While she was in the job of First Lady at the White House, she spearheaded the task which ultimately became the Highway Beautification Act. Due to her, U.S. highways are actually lined with exquisite native wildflowers and plants rather than junkyards. Lady Bird Johnson also created the National Wildflower Research Center in Austin, Texas. Lady Bird Johnson’s popular wildflower was the lavender-colored bluebell. A charming attractiveness – the bluebell is actually colored in shades of blues as well as to light purple and features a blossom in a bell design. Meaning humility, devotion, and gratitude, it is so easy to see the reason why she was drawn to this certain flower.
