(Oct. 11, 2019) Flowers, jewelry, candles and furniture are all available at Ocean City Florist and Gifts, located in the Montego Bay Shopping Center on 129th Street.
Denise Heim-Pazdan obtained ownership of the shop in April around Easter, but she has been working with flowers since she was in high school.
“I’ve been in the floral business since 1990,” Heim-Pazdan said. “I also worked for 25 years at Dundalk Florist in Baltimore.”
Heim-Pazdan worked at Ocean City Florist and Gifts for four years before the original owner decided to retire, and has kept the shop very similar to how it was, albeit with some minor renovations.
The flower shop offers services for weddings, anniversaries, funerals, birthdays, homecomings, proms and any other special occasion.
It is filled with a colorful variety of flowers, ranging from exotic orchids to the popular Gerber daisies, as well as an assortment of roses.
During the fall, seasonal flowers such as sunflowers, orange roses, daisies, Asiatic lilies, solidagos and other bright colored styles are available.
In addition to flowers, the shop offers European and dish gardens, silk and dried floral arrangements, funeral designs, gourmet and fruit baskets, gift baskets, greeting cards, candles, jewelry and stuffed animals.
“I like working with the public and making them happy with flower arrangements, and doing weddings and seeing the brides get excited about their flowers,” Heim-Pazdan said. “We have a good history, good service and knowledgeable staff.”
Bouquets are always available at the shop for walk-in orders, ranging from $10.95 to $14.95 for any occasion. Heim-Pazdan recommends walk-ins visit the shop either on or after Wednesday, as that is when the new supply of flowers come in and are freshest.
