“Metallics — silvers and gold — are something I’m also starting to see with brides,” McCain said.
McCain also loves hydrangeas with their variety of color options. Hand-tied bridal bouquets are also still a popular choice for local brides.
“Designing wedding flowers is such a special thing,” McCain said. “I love to be a part of someone’s special day. Every day anniversary or birthday flowers to surprise someone is so exciting. Sympathy flowers and designing for a family to say goodbye to a loved one is also a rewarding part of my job.”
McCain said she decided to open Teacups and Tulips a little over a year ago because she wanted to share her love for flowers.
“Flowers brighten my day every single day and I love sharing that with others,” McCain said. “Teacups and Tulips is unique , I believe, because I offer fresh ideas and put my all into a small arrangement to say thank you to someone as well as designing a wedding. Because it’s really not a job to me I enjoy everything I make and I hope that shows in my work.”
McCain’s family is originally from Eupora. Her parents moved to Starkville when they were first married and Mallory grew up there. She wanted to come back to Eupora to open her shop because she likes the feel of a smaller town. And she has a little personal history with the building where Teacups & Tulips is located in downtown Eupora –her grandparents actually met in the flower shop building. Her grandfather had just returned from the navy and her grandmother was a waitress there, making the place a little special.
