This is Jacqueline’s sixth year being open for prom.

Jacqueline’s Flowers has been open on 100 Springdale Rd in Cherry Hill since 2017 when Christian Ratell and Jason Hind purchased the flower shop accompanying Cafe Flora. Their mission has always been to carry on Jacqueline’s Flowers’ legacy and to make beautiful arrangements that put smiles on people’s faces

Prom season is one of the busiest times of the year but the owner, Christian Ratell, makes it a priority that their team “handles it very well as far as taking care of customers.”

The shop offers a wide array of arrangements such as corsages and bouquets but for Junior Prom in particular “the most popular is probably the bouquet for the girls and traditionally with the white rose.” White is their most popular color but this year “we have been trying to get people out of their comfort zones and do something a bit more exciting, so we have been pushing for a mixed flower bouquet,” said Ratell. Employees urge customers to not match their dresses or suits and to go with something bold.

The most popular mix they offer is their spring flower mix that comes in an array of vivid colors which all can be seen on the store website under the Prom category.

The most requested order for guys is the single rose boutonniere in a standard size with small white wax flowers. The bouquets very often contain white wax flowers as well.

With all of this pressure to make all the customers happy during this stressful season, it is important to be “staffed well and have reliable employees” in order to ensure customer satisfaction.”

Jacqueline’s Flowers’ organization and determination is what allows people to feel satisfied and truly adds the excitement of prom.
