Gift Ideas for Mothers Day

We love Mother's day here at the shop. Did you know that Mother's Day is the largest floral holiday here at our shop next to Valentine's Day? We'll sell over 2,000 carnations and just as many roses during the week along with other popular spring flowers like gerber daisies, hydrangeas, lilacs and more.

What better time than Mother's Day to show mom how much you appreciate everything she has done for you? What better way than by sending her a gorgeous floral bouquet!! Ok, if you are looking for gift ideas for mom, can you really go wrong by sending her flowers? We think not!

The variety of flowers available during spring are spectacular and there a so many unique ways to arrange them. What about French Tulips submerged in a tall glass cylinder vase or a topiary of all Yellow Lilies?

Does mom really love plants? What about a sweet Pink Azalea plant in an elegant ceramic pot? A gift like this lasts all summer long out in the yard and can be planted in the garden in the fall. Terriarums are popular right now and are super easy to grow and care for.

At our shop, we have so many fun gift items like wind chimes, Yankee Candles, fun tote bags, stuffed animals, coffee mugs,  wine glasses and more.

The great thing about order a gift for Mother's Day from your local florist (hopefully us) is that we deliver directly to mom - No shipping! Hand delivery all the way and we even deliver on Sunday, May 13th - Mother's day.

Still need other gift ideas? What about Yummy goodies such as fruit baskets, gourmet and snack baskets or even fresh baked and decorated cook bouquets?

How about sending multiple gifts to Mom? A pretty spring flower bouquet, with a Happy Mother's Day balloon and a box of chocolates is our most popular combination and what Mother would not be thrilled when that shows up at their door!

Well, I hope this blog gave you a few good gift ideas and don't forget, Grandmom, Godmother and Mother-in-Laws too.  Mother's Day is that one time of year when you can shower her with gifts, even if they live far away. To see these and more our gift ideas shop us online at www.sendingsmiles.com or visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/localflorist. Is our shop near Mom? No worries, we can still send a lovely floral gift thru our network of affiliated local florists located around the country, with no extra fee.

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…

How to Carry a Bridal Bouquet. It's not so hard....

People often ask me what is the right way to hold a bridal bouquet. I know some ladies think it's going to be hard but truthfully, even a cascade is very easy to carry. As in the example to the right, that's me holding a very sweet tear drop shaped bouquet (compliments of our bride Coleen). As you can see, I'm able to hold the bouquet with one hand and it's not uncomfortable for me in anyway.

The key to holding a cascade is to drop it down to the waist  level. I've seen many pictures of girls holding their bouquets too high, which is a very uncomfortable way to hold these. Second, holding it too high, especially in the case of the bride, blocks all the beautiful detail of their dresses. Remember, when you are walking down the aisle you want to appear relaxed and natural!

Another issue I've seen is to point the bottom of the bouquet outwards. Make sure that the bouquets sits nice and flush against your body. This will give you the best possible view in the pictu…
