The Blossom Shoppe

What if everyone knew what a flower could do?

In a town that is totally gray and where everything is done in the same exact way, Poppy and Posie Blossom have always had a little trouble fitting in. Alongside their mother, the two sisters run their beloved family flower shop. Though Poppy, Posie, and Mama Blossom love their shop more than just about anything, to the rest of the town, flowers are just frivolous!

 

When Mama Blossom shocks Poppy and Posie with the news that they will have to close their shop, the sisters must dig deep to figure out how to prove to the town just how special their flowers truly are – discovering along the way that what they need might have been inside them all along.

 

Join Poppy and Posie on their unforgettable journey to save the Blossom Shoppe—a multi-award-winning story about the power of hard work, creativity, acceptance, and family, and the extraordinary things that can happen when we have the courage to let our true colors shine.
