Thank you so much for helping to make my day perfect!"
Horne, 32, got into the flower business after leaving Franklin Pierce College, where she had studied art. She started as a delivery driver for Plant Bazaar, which has been in town for decades. She said she found that floral arrangements were a way to put her artistic side to use.

Weddings, funerals, deliveries and interior/exterior work are all part of what Horne offers. There is also a small greenhouse on site. Horne and Renee Donovan, her future sister-in-law, work at the business and get help from friends during the busier times of year.
