The nautical-themed florist, which serves West Haven and New Haven County, is dedicated to providing handcrafted bouquets with “the freshest blooms available.”

“Our talented team of florists will work with you to create a floral arrangement that perfectly expresses your sentiment,” Gonzalez said. “Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or simply sending your best wishes, we'll make sure your flowers are unforgettable.”
Christine’s Creations is open from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday.
