Posted: December 6th, 2016

Holiday FlowersWith winter and snow now truly on its way, we know that means the world around us is destined for a few months of stark brown and white. While snow starts off as a pretty sight at first, it can turn to slush and a dull grey color and quickly become a reminder of the seemingly dead and lifeless season. So how do you bring color back into your life? One great options is selecting a colorful floral arrangement to brighten up your home!

Crisp Winter Skies

The vase is then wrapped in a chic silver ribbon, adding a finishing touch to this beautiful arrangement.

Posted: August 6th, 2015

flower vaseEveryone knows that flowers make great gifts, and there is nothing better than being surprised by a beautiful arrangement on a special day. Whether you send someone flowers for their birthday, anniversary, holiday, or any other occasion, you can add a special and memorable moment to their already exciting day. However, with so many birthdays and holidays to keep track of, how can you keep straight when you need to send flowers to the right people? We have a few tips to help you keep thing straight.

It may sound obvious, but the first thing you should do is mark all special days in your calendar. This is especially useful if you have a small calendar on your desk that you look at every day. You will be reminded days or weeks in advance before someone’s birthday, ensuring you have enough time to send flowers. Of course, you can also set digital reminders in your phone, which will give you even more of a heads up before a special occasion.

Of course, an even simpler option would be to order flowers ahead of time. You can take your time to pick out the perfect flowers for any type of holiday or anniversary, and schedule them to be delivered on that day, even if it’s months away. This will save you the time and trouble of having to keep dozens of dates straight in your head.

No matter how you keep track of the most important days in the lives of your friends and family members, flowers are a great gift that will add a perfect touch to any celebration.

New Years’ Cool Colors Make Great Bouquets

Posted: December 30th, 2014

New Years Bouquet New Years isn’t traditionally an occasion calling for flowers. But New Years bouquets are the perfect gift for a friend or family member that’s hosting a party this year. It’s also a great way to surprise a loved one at work or at home and starting their year off the right way.

Right between Christmas and Valentines Day, New Years is a great holiday for white and blue bouquets and arrangements that are clean, fresh and inspirational for the New Year ahead. Alone or accompanied by greenery, roses are a traditional and beautiful flower that can send a message of love, appreciation or thanks.

For a fuller arrangement, baby’s breath can compliment roses perfectly. Their white color matches the focal roses, while adding more texture and reflecting the wintertime. Mixed with the green of the stems and leaves, this combination makes a great small, medium or large-sized arrangement.


White lilies are another great choice for a New Years bouquet. This recently popular flower is full, large and gorgeous. Often used in wedding bouquets, they can also be arranged alone of with other flowers for arrangements in vases or pots. These flowers also have a distinct scent that brings a fresh, floral smell to any room they are placed in.

In the place of baby’s breath and in addition to white lilies, there are blue flowers that can stand out and make an arrangement really stunning. The two most sent blue flowers are blue orchids and hydrangeas. Either of these will add a pop of color to a white bouquet. Blue orchids are bright, with hints of dark blue and purple, while hydrangeas are a larger flower with lighter blue petals.

Any combination of roses, baby’s breath, lilies, orchids and hydrangeas when professionally done, will be lovely and the perfect package for anyone’s New Year. Use one or two of these flowers for a small, intimate bouquet or mix them all in together for a large centerpiece, designed to impress.
