We’re headed out west!



Little Rock, AR, 7.30.2014 – Tipton Hurst, Arkansas’ oldest and largest florist is expanding with a new  location in West Little Rock located within The Promenade at Chenal shopping center.


The new Tipton Hurst store will be located in the former Coldwater Creek space at the front of The Promenade main entrance.  The store is expected to open mid to late September 2014 and will offer a unique array of seasonal and holiday focused décor, floral arrangements, gifts and more. Special creative learning seminars will also be offered for the DIY customer later in the year.

“A seasonal Tipton Hurst location at The Promenade is a perfect addition just in time for our holiday shoppers. We are proud to have them join us for what we hope will be a very exciting end to 2014. ” Linda Hinton, General Manager, The Promenade at Chenal

Coldwater Creek vacated The Promenade at Chenal with the recent Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing of Coldwater Creek, Inc. that instituted the closure of all 365 stores in the company portfolio.

Google Economic Impact 2014

Each Year Google selects one business and one city from every state to feature in their Economic Impact Report. This year, Tipton Hurst is proud to announce that we were selected to represent the state of Arkansas. We are more than honored to have such a company recognize our online marketing and e-commerce efforts.

Google came into our store in May to take pictures and interview President and CEO, Howard Hurst about his use of Google within his business and the efforts of his staff to create Tipton Hurst’s online presence. While in the interview Howard said  “[The Internet] is how people find you today, whether they’re on the next block or overseas”  and  “People will email us or contact us and say, ‘I’m overseas,’ even service members in Iraq and Afghanistan. We get them emailing us and saying, ‘Hey, I found you online and I’m looking at your website.” How awesome is that?! With the help of Google and the internet a local business is able to send flowers around the world! 

Our customers deserve a HUGE thank you for all of your loyalty and support. Without you all there would be no marketing, no e-commerce and no Tipton Hurst.  We know that you have a choice when sending flowers and we are so thankful that you place your trust in us to handle all of your floral needs.

Radiant Orchid Wedding Designs with Chris Norwood

Having a wedding in 2014? If you’re still in the market for wedding colors, you might want to check out radiant orchid. It’s the official color of 2014 and will look gorgeous at any wedding. Now obviously you’ll want to incorporate your wedding colors into your wedding’s floral choices, and many might tell you radiant orchid won’t show up well on photography, since purple typically recedes in color on film. Well Chris has already thought ahead of that. He’s got a floral arrangement that’s perfect for all those purple-loving brides out there.

When you are putting together your bouquet, take your radiant orchid flowers first, clutching them together. Now add brightly colored lavender, water roses, and wax flower for an airy, whimsical look. Once you have a bouquet look you’re happy with, take a few strings of ivy and wrap them around the base of the buds. Let the ivy cascade down off the bouquet, which adds a lot of visual value if you don’t have a lot of design work on the front of your wedding dress. Keep it held together with floral tape and wrap it with burlap ribbon for aesthetic appeal.
