Summer Finale

Well, it's coming to an end for the Season. Weddings are still going strong until the end of September, but with the majority of the Tourist Season happening between July 4th and Labor Day here in Cannon Beach, we are just about at our Summer Finale. :) We had a wonderful Summer Season full of gorgeous original weddings, beautiful floral arrangements and an abundance of Cannon Beach Logo items flying out our doors this Summer. Thanks to everyone who supports Basketcase, also known as your locally owned and operated Cannon Beach Florist. We have had a wonderful Summer thus far.
