State Floral is joining the other businesses and apartments in the new Midtown Starkville development on the corner of University Drive and Montgomery Street.

State Floral is still under construction and is expected to open in 45 to 60 days.

State Floral owner Allison Siddall said she has owned a floral and event planning for the last two years, but this will be her first brick-and-mortar store.

"I will offer florals, home decor and gifts for every occasion," Siddall said. "It will be high-end, upscale florals that I can customize for flowers that anybody orders for birthdays or anything else. It will all be customized. I will also do flowers for weddings and other events."

Siddall said along with floral arrangements, State Floral will offer collegiate items, Bid Day and Greek items, baby gifts and party supplies.

"I have a clientele that I've already built up in Starkville, and I enjoy working with the clients there and meeting new people and building relationships there," Siddall said. "I just hope to further that."

State Floral can be followed on Instagram at @statefloral and Facebook at State Floral.

State Floral will be open from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturday with special hours for game day weekends.

Developer Jeffrey Harless, of Harless and Company out of Tuscaloosa, said State Floral will join Orangetheory Fitness and a second Starkville Strange Brew Coffeehouse on the first floor and 66 one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments on the upper floors.

Harless said State Floral will occupy 2,000 square feet of the ground floor of Midtown Starkville, and six businesses total will open in the development.

The other businesses have yet to be finalized.
