What's happening at Monday Morning Flowers?

Jump on board the classes at Monday Morning Flowers!  We have been having such a blast at our in-store events, we have to update everyone on what’s to come.  Recently, we had Summer Fun Floral Design on June 12th, and Laughter and Flowers on June 27th.  Both classes were great fun with people designing their own arrangements, sipping on margaritas, and learning ways to lighten up and laugh a little more in general.

            

           

On July 24th, join us for an exciting night of photography paired with a wine tasting.  Enjoy delicious and refreshing local wines, and learn a little about your favorite taste.  We will be joined by Jay Bryant of Jay Bryant Photography, who will be teaching tricks to take great photos with your camera or smart phone.  This class is only $55 per person, and includes $15 of Monday Morning Money.  Know someone who loves wine or taking pictures?  Why not bring a friend or come solo and meet new people while you enjoy a fun night out?!




Of course we love to learn about photos, and can’t deny we enjoy a nice glass of wine, but our favorite classes to teach are hands-on design.  Our designers do a fantastic job of helping everyone create a gorgeous arrangement to take home and have as some personalized décor.  On August 21st, learn how to create a high-style, tropical floral arrangement with unique and exotic flowers.  Leave with $10 of Monday Morning Money, your own décor for home, and the skill to create your own floral pieces as a hobby, or even for your own parties!  This class is only $75 per person – but space is limited for both events, so please reserve your spot!  Sign up for one or both classes on our website, www.sendingsmiles.com, or call the shop at 609-520-2005.

All of Your Prom Corsage and Boutonniere Questions- Answered!
What is a prom corsage? A prom corsage is a small floral arrangement to be worn on a female’s wrist or collar. The prom corsage is typically purchased and given to her by her prom date. The wrist corsage is the most common kind, and is typically chosen to match the prom dress.
What is a boutonniere? A boutonniere is a floral design worn by a male on the lapel of a suit or tux. The boutonniere is typically bought for him by his prom date and is chosen to match the prom corsage.
What wrist is the corsage worn on? Proper etiquette calls for the corsage to be worn on the left wrist, unless the person wearing it is left-handed. If left-handed, the corsage can be worn on the right wrist.

Do the corsage and boutonniere have to match? It is not a rule that they match, however the couple will look more put together if they do. The boutonniere gives a touch of color to match the male to his prom date though a simple flower.

How to Make a Flower Puppy

It's amazing what you can do with 12 carnations and a little bit of creativity. Our Floral Designer Rocio loves making puppy arrangements so here she shares her tips with you! Here's what you will need ~ 12 full size carnations, floral glue, floral tape, a floral container, 1/3 of a block of floral foam and some assorted greenery.  First take your wet floral foam and tape it securely into your floral container.  Slowly start adding the 12 carnations starting with the top to form the head, the ears, the face and the 2 front legs. Keep going, adding carnations but only using 12 total! 
Now he has his 2 front legs, sitting over the edge of the container.  Using the floral glue, add the eyes and the nose. Be creative here. We use eyes and noses for the floral industry but you can use felt, screws or even a pip cleaner to form these facial features.   Next, start filling in with assorted greenery and mosses. This will become his little bed!  Be sure to fill in along the back. Reme…

This or That ~ a lesson in color

It's Saturday afternoon and I'm thinking about the 3 weddings we did today. One was blush pinks and creams, one was creams, corals and peaches and one was purples and blues. It's amazing how floral designs in different colors ~ even using similar flowers can look so different. Case in point are these 2 centerpieces. Created for a Corporate Client who likes to see options, both are valued at the same $65 per table. When I posted these on our Facebook Page asking folks to tell us which was their favorite, it was easily 50/50 with a few saying they loved both. It's amazing how choosing one color theme can make floral designs even more dramatic. Imagine if these 2 centerpieces were multicolored? They wouldn't really have the same level of sophistication and drama ~ don't you agree?  The peaches and corals are warm and elegant while the purple shades are cool and bright.   The next time you are ordering centerpieces for your next event, why not choose and color and…
