Fernando's Flower Shop has been in business for ten years providing the Wasco community with beautiful floral designs for any occasion.
Owner Ramon Hurtado said, "You will not find a better florist in town. We make every arrangement with love. Our designs come from the heart, making us stand out from the rest."
"My team consists of the best flower designers in the area. Macedonia Gonzalez has been a flower designer for 41 years and is the only job she has ever had. My other designer Patricia Leon has 22 years of experience," Hurtado said.
"With their knowledge and expertise, we create unique and exquisite flower arrangements for a great price. We will work with any budget and have specials every single day," Hurtado said.
Gonzalez said, "Over the years, I have designed thousands of flower arrangements. We keep our customers excited and more than pleased with our work."
Hurtado sources his flowers from the flower district in Los Angeles. He goes there twice a week to ensure that he offers the freshest arrangements possible.
"Taking superb care of our flowers and facilities assures our customers get the longest life possible from our floral designs. I believe this is distinctive from the other shops and why our clients appreciate us the most," Hurtado said.
"We put much effort into our designs. I see what we do as an artistic endeavor," Gonzalez said.
The shop provides flowers for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, religious events, funerals and celebrations of life. Hurtado said, "We meticulously prepare arrangements for any occasion you can think of."
Some of their biggest customers are local funeral homes like Basham & Lara Funeral Care and Peters Funeral Home.
"I feel good knowing we can bring a sense of compassion to what may otherwise be a difficult time," Hurtado said.
Hurtado said, "We can coordinate flowers for any size event. It can be the biggest you can imagine, and we can handle it. Every month we do at least three large events."
Hurtado enjoys the flower business because it is fun.
"I love customer service, providing our clients with attention to detail, and delivering a quality product. Flowers make people happy, and I enjoy seeing their smiles," Hurtado said.
Hurtado said, "I also appreciate the feedback we receive from our customers, helping us meet their needs and expectations. About 99% of the comments are positive, which shows that we are doing something right."
Hurtado has a second location in McFarland. Together they work hand in hand to produce one-of-a-kind floral designs.
