What's happening at Monday Morning Flowers?

Jump on board the classes at Monday Morning Flowers!  We have been having such a blast at our in-store events, we have to update everyone on what’s to come.  Recently, we had Summer Fun Floral Design on June 12th, and Laughter and Flowers on June 27th.  Both classes were great fun with people designing their own arrangements, sipping on margaritas, and learning ways to lighten up and laugh a little more in general.



On July 24th, join us for an exciting night of photography paired with a wine tasting.  Enjoy delicious and refreshing local wines, and learn a little about your favorite taste.  We will be joined by Jay Bryant of Jay Bryant Photography, who will be teaching tricks to take great photos with your camera or smart phone.  This class is only $55 per person, and includes $15 of Monday Morning Money.  Know someone who loves wine or taking pictures?  Why not bring a friend or come solo and meet new people while you enjoy a fun night out?!

Of course we love to learn about photos, and can’t deny we enjoy a nice glass of wine, but our favorite classes to teach are hands-on design.  Our designers do a fantastic job of helping everyone create a gorgeous arrangement to take home and have as some personalized décor.  On August 21st, learn how to create a high-style, tropical floral arrangement with unique and exotic flowers.  Leave with $10 of Monday Morning Money, your own décor for home, and the skill to create your own floral pieces as a hobby, or even for your own parties!  This class is only $75 per person – but space is limited for both events, so please reserve your spot!  Sign up for one or both classes on our website,, or call the shop at 609-520-2005.

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…
