City Flowers, a premier flower and accessories shop in Bellevue, Washington, has been offering exceptional floral arrangements and gifts for 26 years.
Owner Jonathan Gieseke explains that "escaping the ordinary" is one of their main objectives, as they watch the demand for more original, quality decor continue to climb. Because of this mission, they've carried items from Katherine's Collection for over 15 years.
At City Flowers, the Halloween themes take the lead in popular home accessories. Jonathan mentions that autumn through the holidays are not only busy months, but his favorite time to check out Katherine's items. When asked to recall the most memorable pieces, he describes, "A lot of the skeleton dolls. A lot of our customers collect all the wonderful Halloween skeletons too, I think that would have to be the favorite."
The event team at City Flowers also offers professional installation for any themed event, complete with specialty lighting and props. They've coordinated displays for dozens of private houses, along with hotels, restaurants, and full grand staircases, all with Katherine's collectibles.
When it comes to advising retailers who are new to the Katherine's brand, Jonathan offers up his strategy. "My best advice would be, whatever line you're going to buy into, buy into heavily and tell the complete story. If you create the entire story, you sell the entire story, and it makes more sense when people can visually see the line put together."
