On Monday, February 7th, An Eclectic Stem located in Westport, officially kicked off Valentine’s Day. Paige O’Connor, owner of An Eclectic Stem, organized a “flash mob” and took to the neighborhood streets in celebration.
The event, promoted via Facebook and Twitter, was centered around an impromptu dance party in the middle of Westport Road. A small gathering assembled in front of the doors of the flower shop and hundreds of rose petals flew through the air as the band, The Also Rans, performed in below-freezing temps.
An Eclectic Stem is located at 508 Westport Road in Kansas City, Mo. Contact them at 816.256.8585.
