Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas for Men to Their Ladies

Do  you have a special anniversary coming up ~ 5 years, 10 years maybe even 25 years? Well, we have
some really great ideas for you!

Take past Groom Ellis for example? This past week was he and Tina's 5th wedding anniversary. What did he do to make the day special? He had us duplicate her bridal bouquet for her! What a sweet guy and what a great idea, right?

Can't remember what was in her bridal bouquet? Don't worry, any talented florist can take a peek at a photo and determine how it was made and what flowers were used. In the case of Tina and Ellis, we designed the original bouquet 5 years ago and so it was easily recreated.
 Wow, what about sending this? One hundred, yes I said 100, long stem red roses. Imagine the delivery arriving to her office and how amazing she will feel when all her coworkers see this!

Roses are the traditional anniversary flower and they speak of love but if red is not her color, why not send her assorted colors of roses like this but all pastels such as peaches, pale pinks, lavenders and buttery yellows. Or  perhaps she would love getting deep rich vibrant colors such as hot pink, sunny yellow, rich red and burnt orange. No matter the color, it's all about the size on this amazing rose arrangement.
Looking for something a little less dramatic (and perhaps a bit more cost effective? Why not send this martini glass filled with red roses. Don't you love the heart made out of blades of grasses? This is such a fun arrangement to send, especially paired off with an elegant night out on the town beginning with dinner and then a romantic walk.

Flowers always make a thoughtful gift that will be remembered for a lifetime. They are perfect for just about any occasion but when you want to send words of love, flowers really let you express your feelings.

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…
