Owner, Jennifer Bessette

Jennifer has over 25 years experience planning and executing catering events of every size and variety from weddings, events, and funerals. Her talents would often over flow to design and décor - her true passion.

Her eye and design expertise became her reputation.  

It came as no surprise that she recently expanded her love of all things design through the purchase of Flowers By Debbie in 2020.

Floral Designer, Debbie Lavoie 

Debbie Lavoie opened Flowers by Debbie in November of 1981 and grew a excellent reputation for unique, long-lasting arrangements.  Aside from her talents, she is well respected for her empathetic nature and customer care. 

After 39 years owning Flowers by Debbie, Debbie passed the bouquet to Jennifer Bessette but has stayed on as a full-time floral designer.  

Flowers by Debbie has always prided itself on direct, small town service.
