Our Febrary “Business Spotlight” is “Sweet Peas” located in Star City. Sweet Peas was established in April of 2002 and is owned and operated by Amber Owen. Amber was born and raised in Star City. She is married to Chad Owen and together, they have 3 kids.

Amber knew she wanted to be a florist since she was 8 years old and credits her frequent trips to a small florist operated by Mrs. Arnell Roberts as her initial inspiration. After graduating from UCA with a degree in Family Consumer Science, Amber became an intern at Heeney Company in Atlanta, GA. She also went to a floral design school in Memphis, TN (both in 2001). Amber says that her family has always been a major part of her success and stated “my success in Sweet Peas is simple…be good to your customers and they will come back and be good to you! I appreciate all my loyal customers more than they will ever know!” She loves to help families during rough times and she stated “when there is nothing you can do or say, you can always send love through flowers.” Besides helping with funerals, she offers a full service or floral needs including birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, gifts and even with the loss of a pet.

Amber not only owns a business, but is very active in our community. She is on the Star City High School Advisory Commitee for Family and Conusmer Science, is a sustaining member of the Women’s Leauge, a member of First United Methodist Chruch, and plays a major role in many community events, including last year’s Christmas parade.

We are so thankful to have Amber in our community and appreciate everything she does to help Star CIty. We also want to thank her for being a member of the Star CIty Area Chamber of Commerce. If you are looking for floral arrangemnts or need to send flowers off, please give Sweet Peas a call and let Amber help!
