The creative minds at Roses and More have memorable ways of promoting their business. A recent television commercial by the florist featured a dog yowling to an off-key rendition of "You Are So Beautiful." The three locations around town are painted with giant murals, and the delivery vans are adorned with drawings of flowers. But there's substance behind this quirky style; order from a wide selection of roses and other flowers, plants, teddy bears and gift baskets. Choices are also organized by occasion, and the stores are affiliated with the international FTD service. Roses and More, you are so beautiful.
