Karin’s Florist Hosts a ‘Cinderella Dream Celebration’ Fit for a Fairytale to Celebrate 60th Anniversary

Vienna Florist Announces “Diamond Anniversary” Celebration to correlate with annual Vienna Halloween Parade

Vienna, VA, October 5, 2016 – A party is something Karin’s Florist does best!  Celebrate our Diamond Anniversary and brand new Disney line with a Cinderella Dream Celebration : an enchanting evening our community will never forget.

Come witness the property of Karin’s Florist in Vienna, VA transform into a Disney fairytale on October 26th, 2016. Celebrate with Cinderella and Prince Charming and then marvel as they ride off to join the 70th annual Vienna Halloween Parade in a horse-drawn Cinderella carriage adorned in thousands of fresh flowers. A special guest will also be joining the royal couple. A lucky little girl will be chosen via social media contest to ride in the Cinderella carriage with the Royal Couple and live the life of a princess for one night.

There will be plenty of visual live shot and photo opportunities throughout the day on Wednesday October 26th. Activity will begin in the early morning hours outside our shop with our talented designers weaving and draping thousands of fresh flowers all over an old fashioned Cinderella carriage provided by Shenandoah Carriage Company. There will also be plenty of party setup going on for our Cinderella Dream Celebration red carpet event later that day.

A reception full of dreams and magic begins at 3:30pm, just prior to the Halloween parade, where the first 60 guests will prepare to meet and take photographs with Cinderella, Prince Charming and the flower-draped carriage to create precious memories that will be etched into the hearts of everyone. Each one of the 60 guests will receive a special gift from the Royal Couple before they ride off to join the other parade floats. The annual Vienna Halloween Parade is celebrating its 70th anniversary this same night.

Karin’s Florist has been family owned and operated for six decades and continues to be a staple in the Virginia floral industry. Founders George Raptis and son-in-law Bill Dukas opened Karin’s doors on October 26, 1956. Today, Dukas’ youngest daughter continues to build on the legacy of her father and grandfather’s business as President and CEO. Karin’s is locally and nationally recognized and TV host Steve Harvey once named Karin’s the “Best Florist in America”.

Karin’s Florist is thankful for this community that has supported us for six decades and proud to host an event to remember!
