We've Got Spirit! Yes, We Do! -- Hawkeye Homecoming 2019

The word is “Fight! Fight! Fight! For Iowa!!”

Happy homecoming week, Hawkeyes!  Football season is an incredibly special time in Iowa City.  Win or lose, our wonderful community rallies together to support our team and celebrate how amazing it is to be a Hawkeye.  That pride can be seen through our Iowa City Collegiate line, and year round by the Hawkeyes that find a creative outlet working in our store!

Maddie, an Elementary Education student in her final year of schooling, has been a Flowerama team member for three years.  When she is not spending time working with her elementary students, Maddie can often be found designing arrangements for our customers or crafting our weekly blog and newsletters.

“I love how working at Flowerama has helped me foster creativity and see the unique beauty in everything around me.  I hope to inspire creativity in my future classroom and encourage my students to find beauty in everything they create!”

Caitlyn is a senior at the University of Iowa, studying Leadership and Management.  Working at Flowerama for over a year has not only given Caitlyn a space for creativity, but has also provided her the opportunity to learn about the intricacies of operating a small business by observing the daily work of Tamy, our store owner.

“Flowerama gives me an insider point of view on what it takes to run a small business in Iowa City.”

Olivia, a UI alumna with a degree in Music Performance, loves Iowa City so much she decided to stay after finishing her education.  Working at Flowerama since February, Olivia spends most of her days behind the design counter, making arrangements for delivery and to fill our display coolers.

“When I was at the U of I, every day I created music.  I try to find the same harmonies while I work at Flowerama.”

Rachael is a senior in the nursing program at the University of Iowa.  Although she is new to our team, Rachael came to us with five years of experience from Flowerama Des Moines.  With such a rigorous school schedule, Rachael finds her time at work a great creative outlet from the constant “go” of the hospital.

“Working at Flowerama has allowed me to be creative, something I’m not always able to do as a nursing student.”


Hawkeye pride runs deep in our store and we love to pour our love of the community and school back into our work for you!  Stop by this week to pick up an arrangement from our Iowa City Collegiate line to celebrate your Hawkeye Spirit!
