What's New at the Shop - January 2012

 I have to say, that this past year we had lots of fun bringing in new giftware items. The different gifts we brought in for Christmas sold so well that we decided to really punch up the volume of gifts at the shop this spring. That being said, it didn't take me long to hop on my favorite gift websites and stock up. Coffee mugs sold extremely well for Christmas and so these mugs above should be popular to. My favorite one is actually hidden in the back and says "Stop me before I volunteer again". :o)
 These little kitty banks are so cute and will be affordable additions to flower arrangements and goodie bags for birthdays and new babies, don't you think?
 The wine glasses we had this past holiday sold completely out and so having these everyday styles will be a great additon to our giftware. These glasses have funny sayings and colorful designs. Personally, I love anything with poka dots!
 I brought in these lanterns for the spring and couldn't help but display them now. Imagine having these light your entrance way during a summer party?
 The pitcher to the let is absolutely stunning in person and I especially love the positive thoughts and sayings that go all the way around. It also comes with a very elegant gift box. The bee, honeycomb vase is just too cute and I love the antique feel of it.
Lots of product arrived for Valentine's Day and so I'll probably blog about that later but don't you love these mugs? Imagine filling them with little chocolate kisses and adding a balloon. What a fun gift to give your Valentine.
Last but not least, how cute are these wine glass. I love the little stars on the stems. What a fun item to give as gift for a 30th or 40th birthday. Perfect for that wine lover who is celebrating a BIG birthday! To see these and more of our giftline visit our facebook page at www.facebook.com/localflorist and our website at www.sendingsmiles.com

All of Your Prom Corsage and Boutonniere Questions- Answered!
What is a prom corsage? A prom corsage is a small floral arrangement to be worn on a female’s wrist or collar. The prom corsage is typically purchased and given to her by her prom date. The wrist corsage is the most common kind, and is typically chosen to match the prom dress.
What is a boutonniere? A boutonniere is a floral design worn by a male on the lapel of a suit or tux. The boutonniere is typically bought for him by his prom date and is chosen to match the prom corsage.
What wrist is the corsage worn on? Proper etiquette calls for the corsage to be worn on the left wrist, unless the person wearing it is left-handed. If left-handed, the corsage can be worn on the right wrist.

Do the corsage and boutonniere have to match? It is not a rule that they match, however the couple will look more put together if they do. The boutonniere gives a touch of color to match the male to his prom date though a simple flower.

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…
