Elopement Flowers, Every Bride Needs a Bouquet

Elopement Flowers, Every Bride Needs a Bouquet ~One of the most gratifying things to come out of the pandemic is all the elopement flowers we have been creating. With many couples deciding to get married right away and not wait, it's been our pleasure to create some gorgeous last minute wedding flowers. Some couples are getting married at their own homes while others are going to the court house. Isn't that romantic? We love it!! This bouquet was created this pasts weekend and the bride asked for mostly white and green to be accented with touches of blush/pastels. We used a combination of tea and spray roses, mini calla lilies, locally grown gomphrena, cut succulent plants, eucalytpus and  touches of sweet baby's breath. So soft and romantic. One of our favorites was from a couple of weeks ago. We created a hand tied bouquet of all pink and peach flowers and pops of blue with no added greenery added. Tea and Spray roses, gerbera daisy, berries, carnations (yes, carnations)…

Our Retail Shop is Back Open for In Store ShoppingOur retail shop is back open for in store shopping!! Yay!We have finally re-opened our retail store to in-store shopping after more than 5 months of doing Curbside Pick and Delivery Only. It's felt good to welcome folks back into our pretty little store. During the Pandemic, we brought in tons of new items which we highlighted mostly on our website but now you can see them in person. We have majorly expanded our line of food items to include things such as spice rubs and hot sauces, along with healthy snacks such as veggie chips and Super Food cookies. During the pandemic folks have been wanting to send gifts that pamper and support and so we have brought in more items such as spa sets, soaps and lotions, more healing crystals and even items such as sanitizing sprays and face masks. Many of these items have been added as either their own product on our website available for delivery or as "add on" items that can make your…

Late August Wedding Bouquet During a Pandemic

Today's bridal bouquet ~ I love all the bouquets we do but this one is the closest to what I would have for myself, if I was getting married for the first time (again). After my own wedding almost 35 years ago and a vow renewal 25 years ago - sadly, I can't justify another wedding for myself and Kevin but it's always a wonderful part of my job to road test the bridal bouquets. This bouquet is created with white and pale pink roses, stephanotis (jasmine), gold tinted seeded eucalyptus, silver dollar eucalyptus and pops of purple limonium.

Planning Your Intimate Wedding During Covid-19

Intimate Weddings During Covid-19 ~ What a mess this year has been for couples trying to have a beautiful wedding here in New Jersey. Even my own cousin was affected, changing their date twice and moving locations to accommodate an outdoor setting. Most, if not all our weddings for 2020 have been either postponed to 2021 or are being downsized. A few are holding smaller intimate weddings for family and friends in their back yards and next year will hold the larger receptions with a vow renewal for family and friends. Here in NJ, we are allowed outdoor events with up to 250 guests but most of our weddings are seem to be less than 100 people. Social distancing and masks will be the norm with couples providing both sanitizer and mask. A few of our brides have even asked for a for floral arrangement for the Mask Table. Who thought that we would need that? Yikes!! If you are having to have your wedding during this time, we do have a few suggestions for you. Don't skimp on your bridal b…

Flowers and Funerals During Covid-19

Funerals During Covid-19You may be wondering what is appropriate to send to funerals during Covid-19 and we believe that anything you would have sent to the viewing/memorial/service is still appropriate. Just because the number of attendees is limited, it does not mean that your show of support through sending a floral tribute is not appreciated. As a matter of fact, we think it's more important than ever! Take for example this funeral heart wreath that we recently created for the tribute to a beloved mother and wife. Imagine how serene and soothing this design would be in an almost empty funeral home. A vibrantly colored spray or wreath is just the thing to bring a soft smile and a little kindness during a very difficult time. Not exactly sure what to send? Our talented and thoughtful designers are here to help you decide what is appropriate. Family funerals are not the same. Limited attendees, barren viewing rooms - just so sad. Floral tributes are appreciated more than ever. Th…

What's next at the shop ~ a Covid19 upate

Mother's Day and Covid19 Update Mother's Day and Covid19 Update ~ Can you believe how long we've all been locked down with this horrible pandemic? We've been blessed to be able to continue to spread cheer through daily delivery of flowers, plants, balloons, food baskets and other gift items. Our customers have been so grateful and the recipients have been over joyed when they open their door to find a special gift left just for them. At first it was hard securing fresh product but each week it gets a bit easier. It's been amazing how many birthday celebrations we've been a part of. We've always created lots of balloon bouquets but never so many for children as the last 3 weeks. It's been so rewarding to be able to create these sweet bouquets for little boys and girls.  This week was Administrative Professionals week and were kept very busy on Wednesday with over 50 deliveries going to hard working staff that have been doing their jobs from home.  Next u…
