Meet Our Newest Designer Alicia!

If you ask me what is one of the most stressful parts about running my business, it would be finding talented, hard working staff with a can do attitude. Honestly, we have been searching for someone for more than 2 years and then along comes Alicia who not only is the best fit but goes above and beyond what we could have hoped for.  MMF: Alicia, we're so happy to have you join us at Monday Morning Flowers (MMF). Tell us how you became interested in the flower business! Alicia: My career started as a cashier at a local supermarket but the floral manager asked me to help out in that department one Mother's Day and the rest is history. That was 3 years ago.

I've already taken basic and intermediate design classes along with advance level in…

Wedding Season 2018 - updated trends

Wedding Season 2018 is here and the trends are emerging. Blush tones, organic bouquets with lots of loose foliage are in demand. Flowers such as Garden Roses, Hydrangea, Sweet Pea and Eucalyptus are helping to create dream bouquets. Flower budgets appear to be on the rise as couples want their special designs to be created by a professionals and the trend to stay away from anything DIY (do it yourself) helps couples enjoying the week leading up to their wedding instead of processing flowers and stressing over flower design and set up. We will post more trends as the year goes on!

Spring Wedding Trends

Gone are the days of tightly compacted flower bouquets for the bride and her maids. Today's couples are looking for organic, messy bouquets and we are happy to comply.  Soft blushes such as light beige, pale pink and very soft peaches seem to be what most bride's are asking for. I admit that I might miss the vibrant colors of Spring Weddings past but blush and ivory tones are timeless, thus they never go out of style.  Cut succulents and garden variety flowers in bouquets look formal but unplanned. You can almost imagine a designer walking around a garden clippers in hand cutting gorgeous flowers and arranging them into these stunning bouquets.  When working with your florist it's important to give them a creative freedom to look for the most gorgeous flowers available in your colors and season. The bouquet above is a case in point. At least three elements used where found at the last minute to round out the bouquet and finish the look - resulting in a very happy bride!!

Be flexible on the flower selection; the most economical way to order flowers is to ask for flowers in a color theme, not by flower varieties. As florists, we buy flowers week in and week out directly from our farm sources. They often come in solid flower types but in mixed colors.

When a florist buys in small quantities by certain colors, the price per stem can be double or even triple the case pricing. Keep in mind, that this only works for smaller orders. If you need 25 centerpieces that all look the same, special buying may be necessary, thus raising the cost. Let the designer suggest what will give you the biggest presentation given your budget.
