Fancy Florist is not just about business – it’s about tradition. Born and raised in the sacred village of Alwarthurinagari, the birth place of Sri Nammalvar, Lakshman Varadan learned to make garlands for the temple at the age of eight. He came to Canada in 1965. Graduated and worked as Engineer for several years, he never had opportunity to practice his family skill until 1988. In 1988, Hindu community in Toronto, Canada, built a temple in Toronto. Varadan began volunteering his time and skill to provide fresh flower garland to temple in Toronto – bringing the authentic traditions of Alwarthurinagari to the homes of Indian abroad.
When demand grew for garlands, Varadan started the first Indian Flower shop dedicated to serving Hindu and Muslim communities in North America. With two stores in Canada and United States, Fancy Florist now provides fresh flower garlands for all functions. Fancy Florist also offers fresh Jasmine and other fragrant flower garlands imported from India every week.
Customer satisfaction is our highest priority. The online store will only charge your credit card after you have received your flowers on time and in good condition. You can place the order for flowers and garlands at any time. The system will ask for delivery date. We arrange for the products to arrive on the delivery date you select via FedEx.
Varadan, using his engineering knowledge, designed and built wedding Mandaps. Our Mandaps are unique and are fully decorated with fresh flowers.
