Last year Winston-Salem Journal readers chose Bo-Ty Florist as the favorite florist in the Reader’s Choice Awards. We were thrilled to be recognized as the city’s top florist!
It’s time for the 2012 Reader’s Choice Awards, and we hope we’re still your #1 pick. So please take a moment to vote at http://readerschoicejournalnow.com. It’s fun to vote for all your favorites in over 100 categories. The deadline for voting is Sunday, July 8th.
We are grateful for our friends and customers who help us to be the best.
For many years local florists have participated in a design competition at the Dixie Classic Fair. A professional class was established and each year there are six categories with four entries in each. The participants all belong to the Winston-Salem Florists Association, an organization of retail and wholesale florists including members from the surrounding area.
The theme of the fair this year was “Everyone’s a Hero.” Categories for the competition were all built around this theme and included a sympathy tribute to a fallen hero, a corsage for a teacher, a bouquet for the wedding of a favorite super-hero, an arrangement for a new-born “future hero,” a plant and gourmet basket featuring Texas Pete and Green Mountain Gringo® food items, and the Della Stevens design, a floral interpretation of the American flag.
The designers at Bo-Ty Florist had seven entries this year because some of the WSFA members were unable to participate. We were excited to bring home two blue ribbons, as well as several third place ribbons.
The fair awards monetary prizes that go to the Association; it is our major fund raiser every year. One of the main things we do with the funds is to decorate a tree for the Festival of Trees, a holiday tradition that benefits patients and programs at Brenner Children’s Hospital at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.
Bo-Ty Florist was excited in August to be named in the Winston Salem Journal as “Best Florist” in the 2nd annual Readers’ Choice Awards. We are really proud of our shop and it is rewarding to be acknowledged by our customers and friends.
The florist business is very much about customer service. We deal in emotions every day. We are able to help people express their feelings of joy, of celebration, of caring, and of sorrow. At Bo-Ty, we don’t take that responsibility lightly. It is gratifying to know that a gift of flowers can communicate so eloquently and that we can help to make that happen.
We appreciate your confidence in us!
On August 12th Bo-Ty Florist was once again recognized as a “Top 100” florist by FTD (Florists’ Transworld Delivery).
We are proud to be ranked among the nation’s top florists, and we owe it to our customers who have trusted us to take care of sending their floral gifts both inWinston-Salem and around the world.
The top member status is based primarily on outgoing orders-your orders that we send to florists in other cities to take care of for us. We believe that it is because of our attention to service and our satisfaction guarantee that you continue to let us handle these transactions for you. You know that we will make every effort to pick the right florist, many of whom we have developed relationships with over time, and to follow through to make sure you get what you ordered.
With over 15,000 FTD flower shops in the US and 40,000 around the globe, Bo-Ty Florist considers being one of the top 100 to be quite an accomplishment. We are excited each year to find out where we rank.
Thanks to our great customers who help make us the best!
