WEST AKRON — Pink Petals Florist is a full-service florist specializing in creative arrangements for weddings, parties and other events, according to owner Parisa Damavandi.

Damavandi said she started the 15-year-old business in her home when she was 24, after working at a flower shop while she was studying art in college and being promoted to its wedding coordinator.

“The business outgrew the space in my home and three storage units, so I decided to open a shop at 1960 W. Market St., north of South Frank Boulevard, in September,” she said. “The bulk of my work is for weddings, but most recently, I did an event for the American Heart Association in February, the Blue Tie Bash for the Akron Marathon and the Purim Ball. I also do lots of small-scale work, such as fresh flowers for Fairlawn Country Club and floral arrangements for Hummel Funeral Homes.”

Floral arrangements, one of which is pictured above, can be created for any occasion by staff at Pink Petals Florist.
Damavandi said she and creative assistant Gina Malan, who has a degree in interior design, create items for any occasion and to brighten a home. The shop also carries unique gift items, some of which can be incorporated into an arrangement.

Pink Petals Florist can decorate wedding cakes to coordinate with table centerpieces and bouquets for everyone in a wedding party. Head wreaths, candelabra and alter decorations, petal-strewn aisle runners and floral arches also are available.

“We use fresh flowers and plants for all our creations,” said Damavandi. “We can create blooming baskets that are real cheerful and can be replanted into a garden, and we have a small gift selection that customers can choose from to add whimsical items to a basket. We can also create fruit baskets and baskets to convey sympathy, congratulations and any other message. And we cover the baskets in a French wrap.”

Damavandi said the shop’s creations range from “funky to traditional to exotic” and can be tailored for any size budget. She suggested customers come into the shop to take a look around for inspiration and to get help in creating a unique gift.

“We have such a diversity of customers,” she said. “It’s a happy shop that offers lots of cheerful ideas.”

Delivery service is available on orders of $25 or more any day of the week.

Pink Petals Florist is open Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
