Let the Gatherings Begin!

Hello Friends & Happy Spring!

It's been awhile since you've heard from us over here at Grandiflora, but good things come to those who wait. We are excited to announce a new venture which we think you'll be pretty excited about...we know we are!!

When we left you last, we were announcing the end of Grandiflora Home and Garden's day-to-day retail existence. We knew immediately it was the right decision. Thanks again to each of you who were so supportive. We didn't know where God was leading us, but we knew it was all in His plan. However....we felt that He had more in store for us...so here's where we found He was leading us:

We sought wise council from many of you as we closed shop, listening intently on how you didn't want us to close... or how you hoped the building wouldn't be turned into private offices. It seemed that you each had an idea of what this space might be best used for. The ideas were various and amazing; too many to list. Through that time we began to see a theme. Everyone wanted to be able to GATHER in this place. The idea of losing this charming space to computers, printers and desks would not suffice. There is something welcoming about a well-loved and cared-for historical building. It is a place where we can all come to GATHER for so many different events. Just as many Lynden folks had done for over 100 years before us.

So, that's where the idea was born

We are announcing the opening of a new chapter: it is called Gatherings by Grandiflora. What will this consist of? Retail GATHERINGS called "pop-up shops" hosted by yours truly and an event venue for GATHERINGS you dream up yourself.

What do you mean, "pop-up shops"?

We HEARD you! You wanted us to continue...so here is our best effort to keep the Grandiflora goodness going (while still being true to ourselves). Although we have closed the day-to-day retail of Grandiflora, we still feel we have the desire and the gumption to host weekend shopping experiences and even a Christmas Gathering. In fact, we are already purchasing for multiple Gatherings. Stay tuned for dates of pop-up shops coming soon! For those of you who are new to the idea, "Pop-up shops" are all the rage... usually travelling from space to space. However, we have a built-in space right here at Gatherings, perfectly suited to host fun shopping events you won't want to miss!

But wait, what will the space be used for in the meantime?

Gatherings will also be available to rent! Just think of all the possibilities...

  • Weddings and Receptions
  • Anniversary Parties
  • Baby and Wedding Showers
  • Award Banquets
  • School and Family Reunions
  • Birthday & Surprise Parties
  • Family Holiday Parties
  • Office Holiday Parties
  • Memorial Services or Receptions
  • Classes & Continuing Education
  • Business Meetings
  • Benefit Auctions
  • Game Day/Event Viewing Parties
  • The ideas are almost limitless!

Not only that...but we will also be available to HELP YOU with your GATHERING as well! Does that mean La Von (with a history as a florist) and I (an interior designer by trade) are becoming not only shop owners...but also event planners? Well yes... I suppose it does! If you need a touch of Grandiflora goodness for your special event, we can help plan, design and purchase decor for you...as well as point you in the right direction to other like-minded photographers, fresh-florists and caterers. Otherwise, you can plan and host it yourself! Either way, it's a win-win in this charming historical space!

What does the building have to offer?

As a retail space, you might not have known what was behind all those closed doors which were marked "private". Here's a little sampling of what you'll have at your fingertips for your future Gathering experience:

  • Two Generous Floors/Open Spaces
  • A Rather Sweet Garden Area with Pond/Fountain
  • Board Room/Library Room
  • A Large -Freshly Renovated- Caterer's Kitchen
  • Bar or Serving Counter
  • Garden Gate Access for Food Trucks
  • Various Tables and Chairs
  • Movie Screen, Projector
  • Internet/Wi-Fi & Basic Stereo System
  • Multiple Entrances and Exits Including Wheelchair Access to First Floor
  • Four Bathrooms, Two Regular Upstairs & Two Wheelchair Accessible on First Floor
  • Dressing Room
  • Plenty of Street Parking
  • Centrally Located in Lynden
  • Plus lots more & Charm Galore!!

We hope you are as excited as we are about all the possibilities which the good Lord has put on the table for us. We look forward to sharing the progress with you here and on Facebook/Instagram. You may have seen all the construction trucks here at the store as we update and add to all the wonderful qualities that this quirky old building already holds. Please be patient with us as we continue to hone this new adventure. We hope to begin renting the space as early as possible. Our pop-up shops are also in the works & we will announce the first Gathering as soon as we can! We look forward to continuing to serve you in our new capacity with renewed excitement for what the future holds! Please feel free to pass this information along to anyone you think may have an interest in knowing what we are doing here.
