Bob Tucker – Events by Miss Daisy

Bob Tucker started in the craft and floral industry in 1979 and in 2004, he opened Miss Daisy’s Flowers and Gifts on W. Main Street in downtown Leesburg. Seven years later, the “events” part came when a floral client asked him to plan an entire party. The rest is legendary.

“I realized early-on that people are professionals in their own right and don’t have the time or the experience to plan an event themselves,” he says,” so they rely on us.”

Events by Miss Daisy has planned, created, arranged, and carried-out hundreds of events over the last 13 years throughout Lake and Sumter counties. These professionally developed gatherings include weddings, baby showers, anniversaries, birthdays, retirements, company parties and more. 

“We want the client to experience a seamless party where everything comes together from the initial planning to the clean-up,” Bob says. 

After all the hard work, Bob usually experiences a bit of his own pride and joy.

“With every event, my clients start out as clients, and in many cases, those clients become lifelong friends.”

Before moving to Florida Bob lived in a real ghost town called Shafter, Texas where the 1971 movie The Andromeda Strain was filmed.
