MAYS LANDING, N.J. — Lau’ren Ellis has always had a passion for gardening. She turned that passion into a business called Lau’Fleur, and she sells homegrown flowers to the community as part of that business.
Ellis offers a number of different, unique bouquets as part of her business. Two of the products on offer are the Lau’Fleur mini and the Lau’Fleur classic, the latter of which is presented in a hand-blown glass vase.
“It’s wonderful to be able to get those and have these for your wedding or special day and be able to take home and have something to sit on your counter or nightstand to make you feel good when you wake up the next day,” Ellis said. “Anyone who gets a flower bouquet — or even a plant — from Lau’Fleur, they’re going to feel special when they leave with it. Everything is a one-of-one piece. Each arrangement is hand-crafted and hand-cut from either my small garden or a local South Jersey farmer’s garden.”
Ellis’ small mom-and-pop business certainly isn’t a solo effort, as she collaborates with a number of gardeners in the region. If you want to find out more about the business, you can check it out on Instagram.
