About Smart Flowers
Smart Flowers has been a fixture in downtown Swift Current for over 40 years and under ownership of Poppy Parsons AIFD CFD CAFA since April 1, 2007. Poppy’s floral training began in 1993 while working at Smart Flowers. Having worked under Jim Smart; a highly respected floral designer and photographer, she learned that quality always comes first. Smart Flowers commitment to quality is never surpassed. For over 13 years Poppy & her staff have worked hard & kept the excellent reputation of Smart Flowers in the Swift Current area. The wedding portion of the business has grown significantly and we have become known for our unique approach to design in weddings, sympathy and everyday floral arrangements. We are truly a flower shop first carrying fresh cut flowers, permanent botanicals, and indoor tropical green & flowering plants. We are also known for our Canadian and Saskatchewan made gifts and gourmet foods. Smart Flowers has grown to be the first choice for stylish and trend setting consumers in the Swift Current area and is well respected for their diligence in flower quality and expertise in floral design. We love working with our customers and enjoy the creative process to help them discover their unique personality and style with flowers. Using the elements and principles in design and using a color wheel we help create floral arrangements from classic to contemporary. We use our abilities of proper floral handling, care & floral design mixed with our creative talents to create a unique design using color, harmony and texture. Never underestimate the power of glorious flowers to transform an event into a truly joyous celebration which delights the senses. Smart Flowers loves their location in beautiful downtown Swift Current and are very active in the community. In 2019 they donated to over 20 community events and organizations and were proud major supporters of the SPCA, Blenders & Long Days Night Music Festival.

Owner & Lead Florist Poppy Parsons AIFD CFD CAFA
Your local professional florist Poppy Parsons owner & lead florist of Smart Flowers grew up in a small town; Hazlet, in rural South West Saskatchewan. Poppy lived right across the back alley from her Grandparents and spent much of her childhood playing in their garden. She married the love of her life Kelly Parsons and moved to the Parsons’ family farm in 1995. The Parsons celebrated the 100-year family farm just a few years ago. Much of Poppy’s inspiration for her floral design & floral art comes from the time spent checking cows, fixing fence and helping Kelly on the farm. Her love of nature and flowers was introduced by her Grandparents and continues with the time spent in the pastures and hills of her family’s farm. Poppy bought a well-established floral business; Smart Flowers (a staple in downtown Swift Current since 1975) in 2007.

Why send flowers with Lovingly?

Why should I buy local?
When you buy local, you’re connecting directly with us, an independent local florist, which means you get more value for what you spend—more flowers and better quality. Compare that to the big floral networks that can take as much as 30% off what you pay, decreasing the overall value of the arrangement. When you buy local, you get a better gift, and you help support the local community.
