Our owner, Marie Magnifico Rafter, was born and raised in Farmingdale, NY. She studied floriculture at Farmingdale College and worked with a number of well-known florists along the North Shore & South Shore of Long Island. Marie’s commitment & dedication to detail, service, and to her customers grew stronger overtime, so much that in 1991 she decided to use her experience, knowledge, and skill to open up her own shop in her hometown. In Full Bloom Florist currently resides on 70 Motor Avenue in Farmingdale. In this expansive 3,500 square foot store, Marie and her 13 team members (not including our wonderful freelance designers) continue to provide the Farmingdale community and beyond with stunning arrangements and so much more for all of life’s occasions.
In Full Bloom Florist is a retail flower shop filled with a fabulous variety of giftware and home décor items, a beautiful selection of greens & flowering plants, and of course offers stunning flowers for every occasion. Our noteworthy sympathy arrangements and services are created with such care and thought to reflect a celebration of the lives of our community’s loved ones.
