The Blue Springs, MO Chamber of Commerce has named Village Gardens, a retail florist, business of the year for 2011 at their Annual Banquet.

Established in 1984, Village Gardens has been a part of the Blue Springs business community for 28 years. Village Gardens - Flowers For Any Occasion - specializes in fresh cut flowers for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, funerals and events. Their 8600 sq ft. retail store and design center also features home décor, gifts, cards balloons and a wide selection of wedding and event décor rental.

Dana and T.J. Nigro, owners of Village Gardens, said when they decided to put a florist shop on one of the busiest corners of Blue Springs in the mid-1980s, many people told them they were crazy. When the original location was torn down and plans were made for a brand-new facility, they were told he should put that type of store in the affluent Johnson County Kansas area. They said he is glad that they made the decision to put their business in a community like Blue Springs.

“This is where we live. This is where we are raising our family, and this is where are friends are. The people of Blue Springs have been very good to our family,” they said. “Blue Springs is a great place to live and work.”

In addition for 2012 Village Gardens has been named to Teleflora’s exclusive Presidents Club. This distinguishes Village Gardens as being in the top 1% of the over 16,000 Teleflora Members. Village Gardens is also recognized by The Knot magazines as a “2012 Best of Weddings.”
