Betina's at Parkview, formerly Betina's Garden, owned by Betina and Samy Sabbagh, opened in The Marketplace of Absecon, New Jersey, in 2001. Since then, they have moved to a better location on Rt 9 in Galloway, close to the Seaview Dolce Resort. The two owners bring to the shop a background of experience and diversity that helps make this shop a unique and exclusive place to shop while it maintains a comfortable, creative and relaxed atmosphere.
Betina Sabbagh came to the United States after being born and raised in a suburb south of Copenhagen, Denmark. In Denmark, you must attend the University to study formally and receive a three year degree in Floral Design. Betina's first flower shop, FLORA, was in Denmark, where her parents helped every day.
After four years in her first shop Betina met and married Samy Sabbagh and she moved to the United States. Though Samy helps in the shop when necessary, he is also the Broker and owner of Century 21, Atlantic Professional Realty, in Absecon, NJ.
Betina has been asked to speak for many local organizations such as the Northfield Garden Club, the Somers Point Garden Club and the Harbor Pines Ladies Club.
Betina has also hosted design classes for guests at the Seaview Dolce Resort.
Betina has received The Best of Wedding from The Knot every year since 2010, and Best of Wedding Wire since 2011.
Betina and her staff make an effort to be involved in many activities. Betina is frequently asked to participate in a contest or help organize and host a bridal show.
