The Riverhead Flower Shop has been in business locally for close to 40 years and changed hands in 2010.

“We are a full-service flower and gift shop with great customer service, which is our first priority,” says owner Peggy Kneski. “We are your one-stop shop for fresh flowers and unique gifts for any occasion.”

The staff includes award-winning designers who can create floral pieces for every occasion: weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, congratulations, love and romance, sympathy, get well, Mother’s Day, new baby, thank you and friendship. Their designs range from simple to lavish and modern to old-fashioned, depending on the occasion and cost. The knowledgeable staff will help in the selection process, always keeping the client’s price point in mind. A wide variety of green and blooming plants, including locally grown orchids, is also available.
Riverhead Flower Shop also carries home decor, jewelry, scarves, totes, handmade cards and other specialty items. Balloons, stuffed animals and boxed chocolates can be included with any floral piece to make it unique and more personal. Fruit and gourmet baskets are another shop specialty.
