With a new name and a brand new shop, there are plenty of reasons for local florist Skye Muddle and her team to celebrate.

Formerly known as SM Style Design Create, The Cowra Flower Co. will be officially opened tonight at their new location, 80 Kendal Street.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic and busy season for florists, with events such as Valentine's Day and Mother's Day, Mrs Muddle said her staff have been busy preparing to open the doors of the new shop to the public.

"It feels good, it will be nice just to get the move done," she said.

"It's been a little bit challenging because we've kept the doors open up there and just done bits as we could, we're all excited and ready to enjoy our new, bigger space."

She said her business simply outgrew the old store and has been looking for a new space for a number of months.

"Everyone's so excited for us... they've seen four of us, if not more, squashed into that little shop on a daily basis," she said.

"I wanted something with character and this building ticked all the boxes."

While the new shop will feature all of the same bouquets, bunches and giftwear customers love, there will be some new exciting additions to the business.

"Lots of new ranges and different stuff to what you would find anywhere else in town," Mrs Muddle said.

"We've got a yoga and wellness room happening so that's a different avenue, Jemma [Pokoney, The Cowra Flower Co. staff member] is doing yoga classes with kids.

"We've got essential oils, wellbeing books... we're going to step up our fresh up a notch too.... We're going to do things a bit differently, some new and innovative ideas so we're really excited about that."

The Cowra Flower Co launch will kick off at 6.30pm on Friday, June 26 and Skye says everyone is welcome to come along.

"There's nibbles and drinks happening and we're looking forward to a well earned drink," she said.

"My have team have been working very, very hard, we've rolled on from wedding season, Christmas, straight into Valentine's Day, coronavirus, weddings, Mother's Day.

"We're looking forward to providing Cowra and surrounding areas with beautiful, fresh blooms and gifts."
