Our business dates back to the early 1920's. We began as a small, local, go-to flower shop located in the heart of downtown Rockingham. Hillside's founder Ella Everett made it her mission to construct a shop that would bring joy to county residents. Starting with the construction of our iconic green house, Ella grew locally sourced plants; however, she was known for hosting beautiful parties with absolute attention to theme and detail. Once established, she began designing elegant floral displays for local funeral homes. Although ownership has shifted over the decades, the same true passion remains. Hillside is in the business to create beautiful arrangements, timeless decorated and executed events, and provide our customers with top notch customer service. Currently the Wright family oversees the daily operations of Hillside. Our team of six consists of four designers, one delivery staff, and our customer service manager.
