Branson Petal Pushers

Anna Melendez and Lindsey Baker, Branson Petal Pushers co-owners, stand outside their storefront at 209 W. Pacific St. The store is open Mondays through Fridays 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 9 a.m. to noon Saturdays.

Don’t let this charming little floral shop fool you. Branson Petal Pushers offers a huge selection of top quality floral arrangements for hundreds of clients throughout the Tri-Lakes Area.

“We don’t need a lot of space, because everything we create is specially designed for a particular customer’s needs. We work with multiple suppliers and receive deliveries daily,” explains Anna Melendez, co-owner of the new florist.

“We can access any available plant or flower very quickly in order to provide our customers with the freshest and most unique, custom creations possible.”

Branson Petal Pushers was established in April 2015 by Anna and her business partner, Lindsey Baker, who have known each other and lived in the Branson area for more than 20 years.

They also worked together at a well-established floral shop that recently closed when the owner retired.

“We knew the community needed a locally-owned, full-service florist and we loved the business,” said Lindsey Baker, professional floral designer for more than 15 years.

“We’re not just here to sell flowers. We make sure our customers are thrilled with what we’ve created for the special people and important occasions in their lives.”

Not only does this floral shop offer hand-delivery to a wide geographic area, they provide custom-designed fresh and silk flowers, live plants and charming gifts that complement the made-to-order floral presentations.

Customers can place an order online or via email, provide photos of what they have in mind for a particular arrangement and take advantage of special holiday offers.

“We have two fun and exciting extras for our customers this Valentine’s Day,” Anna said.

“Clients can select an extra-large Valentine’s Day rose called “Pink Intuition” with very unusual pink-on-pink petal striping.

“We can also add chocolate-dipped strawberries from an excellent local candy factory to their order.”

Always eager to please, Branson Petal Pushers will be open on Sunday, Feb. 14 for Valentine’s Day.

Normal business hours at 209 West Pacific Street are 9 a.m.–5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and 9 a.m. until noon on Saturdays.

Telephone orders can be placed at 417-334-5118 and online orders are accepted, as well, at
