Heidi Fittro is the new owner of Touch of Nature florist shop. Fittro enjoys working with flowers and making arrangements for all occasions.
DELPHOS — Heidi Fittro started out a nurse because she wanted to help people. In the back of her mind was the desire to do something else — own a florist shop.
“I’ve always loved flowers — giving and receiving them and just flowers in general,” Fittro said. “When the opportunity came to buy Touch of Nature, my husband Kyle and I jumped on it.”
Fittro said most people enjoy getting flowers, guys included.
“Flowers are a great pick-me-up,” she said. “Who doesn’t like to receive fresh, beautiful flowers?”
Touch of Nature provides bouquets, vases and more for any occasion — weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, hospital patients, funerals and just because. While every occasion she makes arrangements for are not happy, the mother of two puts as much energy and passion into each one.
“I trained under the old owners in my spare time and the one thing they taught me was to look at each finished product and ask myself if it was something I would want to receive,” Fittro said. “So before it goes out the door, I always take another look and make sure it’s what I would want.”
The flower shop also has two tanning beds with special packages to fit any schedule.
Along with Fittro, Brenda Bonifas provides delivery and Stephanie Altman, past owner, also works part-time in the shop making arrangements.
Located at 1875 E. Fifth St., Suite A, Touch of Nature is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment on Saturday. Orders can also be submitted at touchofnatureflowers.com.
