HILLCREST FLORAL AND GIFTS
5204 Overland Road, Boise, 345-5151
You have to hand it to a shop that knows its market. Hillcrest Floral has been providing wedding bouquets, wrist corsages, red, white and blue casket sprays, Valentines Day roses and more for Boiseans since 1974.
Nick Harrigfeld has owned Hillcrest Floral for three decades. His mother owned it before him. A couple of the floral designers on staff have worked there for more than 25 years. Anyone whos worked there a shorter time like a single decade is considered a new kid, said one staffer.
Hillcrest Floral also snagged 2011s Best Florist crown. It has just one location but serves Boise, Meridian, Eagle and Star.
The talented designers at Hillcrest have honed their skills to stay current and offer something for every wallet. As one example among many, prom flowers range from the adorable white chrysanthemum Country Romance boutonniere easy on the bank account at $5.95 to the Fragrant Gardenia nosegay with a price of $62.95 for big prom spenders.
