or all the special and celebratory occasions in life, Keepsakes Florist has been the go-to florist for the Charleston area for the past 27 years. Keepsakes Florist is a full-service, one-stop shop that prides itself on going above and beyond the ordinary to make customers happy for weddings, corporate events, special occasions and holidays. Services include delivery and setup for special events.
Since 1989, Owner Karen Spalviero has made her passion for flowers and arrangements a thriving and essential business on James Island.
“We truly care about our customers and will take extra steps if necessary to make them happy and the recipients happy,” Spalviero says.
Keepsakes Florist offers same-day, guaranteed delivery to James Island, West Ashley, Daniel Island and Mount Pleasant (in the 29464 zip code), and is one of the few florists delivering to Johns Island, Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island and Wadmalaw Island.
Another unique service includes waiving the industry standard fee to deliver flowers outside the service area. “If you need flowers delivered in Columbia, you can call us,” Spalviero says. Keepsakes will arrange for a local shop to deliver the flowers.
Spalviero started out with dried flower arrangements in consignment for Roper St. Francis hospital under the name Keepsakes by Karen.
Keepsakes Florist grew from that business, and a staff of seven now work exclusively with arrangements of fresh, premium flowers that are shipped by plane from all over the world. A refrigerated delivery van ensures flowers arrive at their destination both fresh and fragrant.
The store has a large number of decorative vases, glassware, mercury glass, potted plants and other décor accents. It’s a one-stop shop for decorating any space or enhancing any occasion.
Keepsakes Florist was named one of the top 500 florists nationwide by Florist Transworld Delivery (FTD), based on positive customer reviews.
For unique gift ideas, Keepsakes Florist also offers custom gift baskets, handmade wreaths, plush stuffed animals and jewelry perfect for bridesmaid’s gifts.
The shop welcomes any request for any floral need. Spalviero says she enjoys forming lasting relationships with clients.
“We work hard to make our customers happy,” she says.
