Langdon Floral has a lot to offer the Langdon area not only in services of floral arrangement but in many other aspects.

The flower shop, located on Main Street Langdon, started offering flower arranging classes almost a year ago, and it has proven to be a very successful addition to the community.
“The classes are pretty good, and I have really great attendance,” Tati Davis, owner of Langdon Floral, said.
The classes, which are usually held on Tuesday and Wednesdays about the middle of the month, have become a monthly event for many in the community as Davis states a lot of the same people attend every month.
“It’s kind of turned into a flower club. We are looking for new people. If you want to try it out come check it out,” Davis said.
Davis has the first six months already planned out for the class with arrangements ranging from fresh floral arrangements to more crafty artificial and potted plants.
“That way you can look ahead at the classes and decide if you want to do it then plan around it,” Davis said.,
The classes range from the fresh floral arrangement for January and February to the more crafty classes of March and May.
“I want to do a mixture of fresh flowers, artificial flowers, wreaths, and potted plants cause doing a vase arrangement every month gets boring,” Davis said.
Three of the planned classes will offer more than just a flower arrangement. The February class will teach the participants how to arrange flowers from scratch.
“If you interested in how to take some flowers from your garden or if you want to come in and pick out some flowers and arrange them in a vase, February is the month for you,” Davis said.
The class in March will offer attendees the chance to make a spring door hanger arrangement. A watering can will provide the vase with artificial flowers ranging in soft colors to make it feel like spring.
“You will have your spring wreath in plenty of time for spring,” Davis quipped.
The May class is geared more towards kids with a painted pot and plant. This class provides even more of a craft feel as the participants can paint the pot and then choose from a range of potted plants to put in the one-of-a-kind pot.
“These are for teacher appreciation or for a daycare gift,”Davis said.
The cost of the classes also fluctuates depending on the arrangement. For the first year, Davis kept the cost to around $30 but now that the class has proven successful, the arrangements are getting bigger. The first six classes range in cost from $30 to $40.
The classes are not the only thing keeping Davis busy as she heads into the new year. She is now preparing the business for the busiest time of the year.
Langdon Floral is already preparing for Valentine’s Day, one of her busiest times of the year. Davis is looking forward to the holiday as she has many new ideas for creating glamorous, sparkly, and colorful rose bouquets for the ladies of Langdon.
“We are working on some new stuff for Valentine’s Day this year,” Davis said.
Davis will be offering free delivery in Langdon and will also be open on Valentine’s Day which falls on a Sunday this year. Davis does have some advice to those with flowers in mind.
“Start finding out her favorite colors or flowers now so when you call, we can create a really beautiful bouquet around that,” Davis advised.
