For more than 25 years, The Fresh Flower Market has been brightening up life’s big occasions with stunning, creative floral arrangements. This longtime local business was a mainstay at Quincy and Buckley until three years ago when owner Tricia Fillingim moved the shop to Arapahoe Crossings shopping center to expand and add home furnishings. As a certified member of the American Institute of Floral Designers who has studied with award-winning designers worldwide, Tricia is among the state’s top floral designers. In fact, she’s won awards like Colorado’s Designer of the Year, first place in many bridal design competitions and first place in the fiercely competitive Iron Fist competition. She and her team of five designers pride themselves on producing floral arrangements that are unique and customized. Tricia bought the business eight years ago after working there for several years, and she’s continued to bring fresh ideas to the shop like offering classes on how to give old furniture a vintage look using natural chalk and clay paints.
