Edwards Florist of Northbrook is hosting two open houses to reintroduce itself to business and the local community as it marks its first year under the new ownership of entrepreneurs Jim Fauerbach and Bill Dvorak.
The first Edwards Florist of Northbrook open house will be held on Thursday, June 20, from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. and is open to members of the Chicago and North Shore business community including executives, restaurateurs, hoteliers, venue managers, wedding consultants and all area meetings and event planners. “We want to get to know the North Shore business community the way we know the rest of the community. Our goal is to grow our meetings, events and corporate business,” says Edwards Florist of Northbrook co-owner Bill Dvorak. “As business people ourselves, we understand what it takes to be great business-to-business partners. Whether you’re an event planner, facilities manager, wedding consultant, realtor or restaurateur, Edwards Florist of Northbrook has the one-of-a-kind floral design, business acumen and the customer service to meet and exceed your customers’ expectations.”
The second open house will take place on Saturday, June 22, from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. and is intended for residents of Northbrook and surrounding North Shore communities. “This is our chance to say thank you to our many long-standing Edwards Florist of Northbrook customers,” notes co-owner Jim Fauerbach. “And it’s an opportunity to invite residents of Northbrook and the North Shore area to get to know us even better... to meet our employees and see firsthand the kinds of floral designs, customer service and gifts that make us unique.”
Chef Andrew Brodell of Northbrook caterer Casual Gourmet is partnering with Edwards Florist of Northbrook to provide food and drinks for both open houses. Inspired by Amy Stewart’s best-selling book, The Drunken Botanist, Chef Andrew notes, “ The botanical theme allows us to have some fun with all of the delicious seasonal ingredients currently available at market. And the idea of partnering with Edwards Florist of Northbrook was a natural. We local businesses have to support each other… and our communities.”
Each event will include raffle prizes and/or other giveaways including tickets to sporting events, copies of The Drunken Botanist, manicures and pedicures. Each Edwards Florist of Northbrook open house guest will receive a complimentary potted herb.
Edwards Florist of Northbrook is located at 1353 Shermer Road in Northbrook, IL.
