In May 2006 Precious Memories relocated to the historic Beimers Fine Jewelry location, remodeling the building to showcase a broad line of gift merchandise and featuring the talented designers in view of browsing customers.

In January 2007 Precious Memories was selected as The National Retail Florist by Florist Review Magazine. Nominated by the Wholesale Florist industry Precious Memories was selected from among more than 26,000 florists in the United States and Canada. Precious Memories is the first florist in Texas and the first single location florist to be honored with the prestigious award.

Occasionally, substitutions may be necessary to create your bouquet due to the availability of certain flowers in various parts of the country. Care is taken to maintain the style, theme and color scheme of the arrangement, using flowers of equal value. Additionally, the substitution of certain keepsake items may be necessary due to increased demand, especially during major holidays. In single-flower arrangements, such as an all rose bouquet, or orchids, we will make every attempt to match the flower type, but may substitute with another color.
