Blossom Cafe

Sustainability and Style in Skippack’s New Coffee Shop

The charming village of Skippack, PA, is home to many incredible restaurants, chic boutiques, and fantastic celebrations. Until fairly recently, it only lacked one thing — a gourmet coffeehouse. Now, thanks to Blossom Café and Custom Craft, the Skippack area has a wonderful place for coffee, community, and carbs.

Blossom’s owner, Michelle Buckman, sees opening the shop as giving back to the town that’s given so much to her. It hasn’t been an easy feat, however. She was determined to serve excellent coffee and baked goods, but beyond that, she hoped to build a place where people could comfortably gather while taking in the quaint village. She was especially set on the shop feeling organic — like it had always lived inside Skippack’s beloved flower shop, Floral & Hardy. She had plenty of ideas on how to make the space beautiful and inviting, but only one name to bring it to life: Custom Craft.

Our team built a stylish and sustainable oasis inside Floral & Hardy that complements, rather than competes with, the floral shop. Similar elements were threaded through each store to keep it feeling cohesive, and very little of the florist changed. In fact, they were able to stay open during construction with minimal disruption — a feat all the more impressive considering that Blossom was built from Floral & Hardy’s old counter. This meant refurbishing the existing one into the perfect coffeeshop and building an entirely new and bigger counter for flower arranging and purchasing.

We furthered the organic and natural feel by installing a quartz counter and brick-like tiles on the walls, while Michelle added stylish touches like a moss frame and a reclaimed wood menu holder. Sustainability is particularly important to Michelle — Blossom’s serveware is largely compostable and the shop features repurposed materials where possible.

Michelle has worked with Custom Craft on many projects in her home, so she knew we’d deliver fine craftsmanship and unmatched service on this passion project. She’s thrilled with the final look and feel of the shop and excited to see what its future holds. If you’re in the area soon, pop by for a quick sip — or stop and smell the roses while enjoying a sweet treat!
