3 Alternatives to Red Roses this Valentine's Day

We love red roses but let's face it, they are very expensive during the Valentine's Day season. Although we do NOT raise our prices for the holiday, the rose quality is not as good as other times of the year so here are a few other options we think they will love! Take our Classic English Blooms - this design is Stunning with a capital S! The floral design is lush, elegant and full. Blue hydrangea, pink lilies and purple stock arranged in a 12" tall classic ming vase.
Another sweet design and very affordable is our Puffy Heart Mug filled with pink roses, white daisies and lavender waxflowers and white monte casino accents. Add a teddy bear and a balloon and you have a adorable gift that will cost you 1/2 of what a dozen red roses would be. 

Last but not least, instead of sending traditional roses, why not send an amazing "heart" anthurium plant garden? This "Wow" gift is not only unique but long lasting. Choose between sending a set of 2 or just one. An …

Bridal Guide Wedding

It's always fantastic seeing our floral designs featured in a wedding publication and it's happened again! The February/March addition of Bridal Guide is out sharing a wedding we created for Kristin and Brandon at the Chauncey Conference Center.
Below are a few of our favorite photos from this amazing wedding! The brides maids carried three Juliet Garden roses with summer grasses.  
Kristin's bouquet featured lace flower, tea roses, garden roses, grasses, stock and 3 different types of eucalyptus.   The bride and groom rented some vintage furniture and used this bureau as a way of telling the guests what table they were to be seated at!   The wedding cake was a simple design accented with fresh flowers. The cake was created by Cramer's Bakery of Yardley, PA.   This is the addition the article is featured - February/March Bridal Guide

It's that time of year!

It's January. It's cold. It's dreary. Yup - It's winter but we have something to help lift spirits and make people smile. FLOWERS! Yes, they are true mood booster and we are not making that up. Studies show that having flowers near by help to make people feel more upbeat and less depressed. Do you  know someone that could use a brightly color pick me up? What about yourself? Flowers are the affordable mood booster ~ so come and get'em! No special occasion necessary! 

Gorgeous Amethysts

We just restocked our Amethyst Chunks! Aren't they gorgeous? These are available at our shop for only $9.99 each. 

To meditate with amethyst, go into a room with soft lighting and a calm energy. Use your amethyst cluster to send energy and intentions into the universe. Sit or lay on the floor with the amethyst in the palm of your hand, and breathe in the violet energy of amethyst. Visualize what it is you want. Allow the mellow energy of the amethyst to bring to state of clarity. Imbue your soul with confidence and feel the amethyst radiating its protection into your spirit. When you are ready, take one last deep breadth in, and slowly open your eyes as you breathe out. Cleanse your amethyst after meditating by running under water or placing out in the sun.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Posting a bit late but HAPPY HOLIDAYS! The shop has been very busy since the beginning of December and we are so grateful for all our customers who allow us to make a living doing what we love to do.
As always we've been helping folks express their feelings and with this Winter season still comes birthday's, get well's and unfortunately sympathy's along with the festive occasions of Hanukkah, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. It's always fun to see the holiday trends and this year traditional centerpieces were the best sellers such as this design created by our lead designer.
We also had many folks choosing festive basket designs such as this Berries and Spices which included cinnamon sticks.  We even had some fun with Succulent plants by using fun Merry Christmas boxes as pots.  Although not as popular as previous years, we still made a fair amount of Boxwood trees. This one will be brightening someone's day when it's delivered on Christmas Eve.  Once ag…
