Ballard Blossom (1766 NW Market St) is known for its flower arrangements and delivery. Now the longtime business is adding a new item to its offerings – alcohol.
“Our deliveries of gourmet baskets has grown over the years and we thought it would be nice to be able to offer a nice bottle of wine included with the other gourmet and fruit items,” owner Rachel Martin tells us. The license was just granted a couple of weeks ago and they are still in the process of figuring out details. The beer and wine will be for delivery-only, Martin tells us. The liquor license doesn’t allow for someone to come in and walk out with alcohol.
“One of my employees had the idea of a basket with a bottle of champagne, glasses, cheese and crackers that might go along with beautiful arrangement of roses for an anniversary!” Martin says. “We also have plans to do a ‘game day’ basket that would include micro-brews and snack items like chips, nuts, popcorn etc!”
Martin hopes to have everything ready to go by Thanksgiving.
