2000

 - Twigs Florist was closing its doors after a 14 year run and three owners. Bobby and Mia fell in love with the name and made the bold decision to take it over. Their strenuous effort to re-brand the name "Twigs" and its reputation began. They are currently celebrating Twigs' 36th year, and their 22th.

2004

 - In four short years Twigs acquired a second flower shop, The Flower Shed, in Cranston, with an eye on better serving their clients from a location more centrally positioned within Rhode Island. The goal was to expand their offerings in service with a vision of closing their original location once established.

2008

 - After achieving their shift of a renewed business plan the hard decision was made to close their original location and bring all of their designers together in one location. In a fast-paced eight years the name Twigs was rebuilt and became synonymous with a level of service that exceeded many other flower shops, both in offerings and design aesthetic.

2010

 - In 2010 Mia stepped up from an advisory position to one of hands-on management, adding her talents in retail management. Mia led the effort to deepen the scope of their business plan, most notably the bold decision to step up the quality of fresh flowers and design aesthetic when most flower shops chose the opposite direction. While most shops were going in the opposite direction these decisions prepared Twigs for another move, to East Greenwich, Rhode Island.

2012

 - In 2012 Bobby's role becomes Creative Director, particularly with the everyday aspect of their designs, and the title of General Manager is shifted to Mia. This change of titles allows Bobby to intensely focus on weddings and events. Although Bobby has been a constant since the reboot of Twigs, and his specialty is serving the families in need of fresh design for services and funerals, his true passion lies in being of service to clients for weddings and events.

2014

 - Having achieved all of the goals in re-creating their business plan it was time to seek a new location that would better fit the always evolving Twigs Florist. Mia and Bobby craved a location that had a Main Street, USA feeling. They excitedly moved Twigs Florist onto Main Street in East Greenwich, Rhode Island within the Hill and Harbor District. They opened on January 1st, 2014.

2016

 - Having established a new footprint in East Greenwich, RI they were offered an opportunity to move and expand their design space (into the location they were originally drawn to before leaving Cranston, RI). Twigs opened their new location in July and it's features are a perfect complement to their design aesthetic. Twigs now has a parking lot for your convenience, a rarity on Main Street.

We invite you to call or come in and delight in our "Passion In The Art Of Flowers."

2018

 - Fresh Flowers Designed & Delivered? Twigs Florist has "an app for that!" 2018 was not only spent pushing their design abilities with the shop. Twigs Florist pushed, and when they neared exhaustion, they pushed even harder. With the successful "soft" launch of their new website in 2017, the thought was to continue refining the look of the site along with the ease of use based on their clients' feedback. The result is the site you are visiting now. Since application offerings became available both in the Google Play and Apple "App" Store the dream was to have an app created for Twigs Florist. 2018 is the year this dream was realized. Download the Twigs Florist app, Google or Apple, and enjoy the ability to order bold and unique designs anytime directly from Twigs. What's on the "flower bench" for 2019?

First the celebration of 5 years in East Greenwich, RI, and then we shall see!

2020

 - Nearly all around the world experienced the deepest challenges one can face both individually and collectively and of course Twigs Florist and their staff were a part of it all too. In all their years of providing the best in floral design never was it more evident how powerful the art of flower design actually is. When so many weren't able to be there with loved ones, to celebrate life's new beginnings and even endings, the value of fresh flowers and their pairing with sentiments became profoundly evident. Twigs Florist stepped up to meet each and every challenge in securing fresh flowers from the world markets and executed levels of service most would shy away from. Twigs Florist is proud of their accomplishments through a period of time that seemed to bring about the best in so many and are pleased to have been a part of this energy. What else can be said about 2020? 

2022

 - This year sees the dream of a state of the art private design studio built in a new location come to life. The dream has long been held that if the most comfortable and peaceful of settings can be designed this will translate directly into the level of impeccable service offered to clients. The depth of the design work with the fresh blooms will indeed feel this effect and translation as well. Twigs is excited to announce their departure from their open retail space(s) as this dream is fully realized. Once this transition is complete the hard work begins to create an entire new palette of designs for you to be amazed by. The effort in the past two years has been one of vigor and resolution in the face a fast-changing planet, and human race. The effort now will be the realization of hard lessons learned and applied to the "Twigs Way." Twigs is once again reborn, and as a result excited to be working with you.
