Affluent Flowers

When I first spotted this sign, I just couldn’t believe the name of the florist at the bottom.

Sign: Starbucks, Juice it Up, Affluent Flowers

Okay, I’m sure people with more money send more flowers, but it seems a little tactless to point it out in the shop’s name.

Of course, it is Irvine…

    Thanks for the note, but you misunderstand our name – our flowers look affluent, and “flow abundantly” per the description of the word, but they are not pricy. We just provide excellent value! Come and see our shop to check it out for yourself.
