Poppies Florist

Brenda Shafer is both the owner and the designer at Poppies. She was born and raised in Rutherford with a background in both horticulture and in floral design, after attending the Phil Rulloda School for Floral Design in California. She worked for a major company as their floral manager for several months before making the decision to open her own floral shop in 1999 in Hoboken, New Jersey.

In 2006, Brenda Shafer moved locations to the convenient spot it resides today, directly across from the Rutherford train station.

From hand-tied, grab-and-go bouquets to elegant topiaries and extravagant centerpieces, Poppies offers an impressive range of floral designs for any occasion. Poppies caters to weddings, banquets, funerals, milestone birthdays and a host of other special events.

Poppies is conveniently located on Park Avenue in Rutherford, New Jersey right next to the circle and across from the Rutherford train station. The store is open 7 days a week, Monday thru Thursday from 10am until 6pm, Friday from 10am until 7pm, Saturday from 10am until 5pm and Sunday from 11am until 2pm. And don’t worry if you’re running a little late, call ahead of time and Poppies will stay open for you if you ask!

Let Poppies Florist express whatever it is you can’t find the words to say in a gorgeous display of floral arrangements.
