Orchid Plants and How to Care for Them!

How many times have I heard - "I had an orchid plant once and I killed it"! Well, I can tell you I've heard it more times than I can count. What I tell people is that no, you did not kill it, it bloomed, it ran it's natural course and while you thought it was dead and threw it away, it was actually alive, looking for nourishment, ready to burst forth and bloom again! This blog is designed to make you feel better so that you know you didn't really kill them, they were just sleeping. Thank you so our employee Melissa for writing this blog! Her background in horticulture made her a natural. And my shameless plug is please remember that we sell gorgeous orchid plants and that they make wonderful gifts. 

Take it away Melissa!!
Did you know that there are over 30,000 of regular species and when you throw in hybrids it comes to over 140,000 worldwide, with more species being discovered and created each day? The most popular orchids that are grown in most homes are Phalae…

Amanda Bouquet

Last weekend saw us creating and delivering 5 weddings. How do we do it you might wonder but honestly, at this time of year the pace slows down quite a bit, allowing us to take on more than normal in the way of weddings. Thank goodness for these happy occasions during the summer to keep us stimulated and rejuvenated.

This bouquet was created for bride Amanda and if her thumbs up on our Facebook Page - www.facebook.com/localflorist are any indication, she was happy with the gorgeous, fresh bridal bouquet we created for her. Roses in shades of deep pink and orange, deep plum colored carnations, mini viking poms and medium size sunflowers, an accent of orange lilies, limonium and buplurium and you have one, colorful summer bouquet!

Roses to Go

Roses, roses and more roses. Did you know that roses are still the most popular flowers in the whole (yes, the whole wide) world? Well, they are and with good reason. They come in so many gorgeous colors, they have long, straight stems (at least the florist grade ones do) and they last longer than other flowers (iris and peony only last 3 days in a vase). This past weekend we sent out this order to one special young lady. Four huge vases, each filled with 2 dozen long stem roses. Yes, that's 8 dozen roses - Wow! My partner in crime made the delivery and it caused quite a stir. I can only imagine that this special delivery will be remembered for a long, long time!

Why do we love selling candy?

Because we get to taste test it, of course!! Just kidding but truly, our candy line is fun and tastes good too. Need a gift but not sure what to send? Our decorated cookie baskets are festive. How about sending a goodie basket with a nice assortment of yummy items such as chocolates, fresh fruit, nuts and even cheeses and crackers? Add a balloon and trust us, they will remember their special delivery for a very, very long time. To have us customize a delivery for you just phone our shop at 609.520.2005 or 215.493.1400 or you can shop us online at www.sendingsmiles.com
