Breathtaking Locally Sourced Floral Arrangements

The Fig Tree Florist & Gifts prides itself on superior customer service and going above and beyond to exceed customers’ expectations. Fig Tree has established a reputation for creating unique arrangements with locally sourced flowers. 

“We have small-town prices and customer service, comfort and a feel for our customers with big-city style and design,” says owner Teresa Messer. “We work with local farms to get flowers locally. We keep everything local to benefit the larger community. 

“As a full-service florist, we’ve provided flowers for hundreds of weddings and funerals since our opening. We know what a stressful time it can be. We’ve found that people come to us because we truly care about what we’re doing. And that makes all the difference.” 

Messer is the visionary behind the business. She is passionate about bringing her client’s vision to life. Brides appreciate that she is comfortable collaborating with them. During the initial consultation, many brides share pins from Pinterest. Messer has been delighted to hear from brides who felt that the Fig Tree floral arrangement was even more beautiful than that on Pinterest. Ultimately, that is Messer’s goal for each customer – to delight and wow them. 

“Floral arrangements are about having a creative eye – thinking outside the box when it comes to the design,” Messer says. “At the end of the day, we hope to create an arrangement they’ve never seen before – something they fall in love with. We put our heart and soul into each arrangement. Many brides tell us they are relieved to find us because we understand their vision but we also make them feel comfortable and special. I actually sit down and spend time getting to know each bride personally. This helps us better understand their vision for their big day. We try to always agree to the bride’s requests and will bend over backwards to make her vision come to life. When other florists might say no, we always say yes.” 

Messer’s willingness to do whatever it takes to delight her customers is what drew Amanda Ross to the Fig Tree. For her wedding at the Cincinnati Zoo’s Peacock Pavilion, Ross wanted to make sure her florist would be able to fulfill her unique vision of flower bouquets mixed with feathers. 

“I couldn’t have chosen a better florist,” Ross says. “The centerpieces were gorgeous and my bouquet was absolutely breathtaking. It was everything I pictured and more – a huge cascading bouquet, full of beautiful live orchids sprayed blue and green to match my wedding colors, peacock feathers, and blue and green feathers. Every Fig Tree arrangement was just stunning. They were simply amazing to work with and I can’t recommend them enough.”
