My daughters got the American Girl Melody doll this week! They have had the books for quite a while now and have really enjoyed them. It was only a few short days before they were asking me to craft up something special just for this character. I decided to create “Frank’s Flowers.” Melody’s beloved grandfather, Poppa, owns a flower shop. Melody loves spending time at the flower shop helping her grandfather. I have created 4 printables for you; so you can create a flower shop for Melody too.
I love visiting my local florist. You walk in to an array of vases and baskets and the wonderful aroma of flowers and evergreens. I wanted the “Frank’s Flowers” sign to be colorful and fun. You can find the printable for the flower shop sign here: melodys-flower-shop-sign-printable
I stained mini crates from Michaels to use as shelving to display a variety of vases and containers.
I wanted the shop to have a well stocked and eclectic look.
My local florist always has a specials sign posted out front of the shop. I wanted to create that for “Frank’s Flowers” too.
I created a printable with four different specials signs. We couldn’t forget to wish Melody a Happy Birthday when we posted the New Year’s specials! You can find the flower shop specials printable here: melodys-flower-shop-specials-printable
All florists need an order pad! I created one straight from 12th Street, Detroit, Michigan!
I created an order pad printable for you. Simply print, cut, and staple together. You can find Poppa’s, Frank’s Flowers, shop order form here: melodys-flower-shop-order-forms
Looks like Addy is sending her mother some flowers! How sweet!
I created a back work table for the dolls to make the floral arrangements. Add a phone to get those orders and a few gardening tools!
I used an acrylic index card box for the floral fridge! Melody wanted to decorate the back work room with a few pictures of her favorite musicians: Martha and the Vandellas, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, and the Supremes! These images were found on a Google search.
Melody doesn’t want to get her adorable dress dirty so she puts on her shop apron. I created a “Frank’s Flowers” apron logo. Simple print image onto iron-on paper and iron to a doll apron of your choice. Frank’s Flowers apron printable can be found here: melodys-flower-shop-apron-printable
Ms. Addy Walker is ready to pick up her floral arrangement! I can’t wait to see your “Frank’s Flowers” shops! Craft on!
