The florists at Terry’s Enchanted Garden have created bouquets for Ford Motor Company, the MGM Grand Casino, and Detroit’s mayor. Despite their glamorous rolodex, however, they craft arrangements just as thoughtfully for their everyday customers. The veteran designers specialize in tropical arrangements, which they create from antheriums, orchids, and birds of paradise, rather than collapsed beach umbrellas. They can also construct custom floral creations for special occasions that range from birthday parties to monster-truck rallies, or recreate an array of stylish stock bouquets. For chic wares to complement their arrangements, clients can browse the shop’s boutique, which is stocked with a carefully curated selection of apparel, limited-edition art, and gift baskets packed with gourmet chocolate and snacks.
"As a culture, we’ve gotten away from digging our fingers into the dirt," says Craig Koetsier. At Koetsier’s Greenhouse, co-owner Craig is trying to change that and remind people—particularly the next generation—how to work with the earth. "We’re kid-oriented," Craig says, describing his center's plethora of youth-friendly diversions such as crafts and train rides; their smorgasbord of children’s spring activities was even featured on FOX17.
When he was a child, Craig ferried flats of petunias and impatiens around the family greenhouse. Today, he and his brother are third-generation owners of the business, and their sister works with them at the 100,000-square foot greenhouse where visitors spy hanging plants, annuals, container gardens, and flowering shrubs, asking them where they see themselves in five years to asses if they're a good fit. Although the Koetsiers still coax blooms from traditional favorites such as geraniums, their greenhouse has thrived over the past century by keeping up with contemporary gardening trends and transforming its stock in coordination each season. In the autumn, families arrive to play amid mazes and inflatables and assess the structural integrity of pumpkins before outfitting them with wheels and hitching them to horses. When winter blows in, guests browse the center's pine boughs and live evergreens to decide which to take home and string with decorations.
