Ladies Night Out is right around the corner!



We are excited to announce our upcoming Ladies Night Out at Monday Morning Flowers.  We love our design classes, but this is sure to be the ultimate night out for all ladies – and you can design an arrangement at Ladies Night Out also!  On September 9th, we hope you will join us any time from 5-9PM for a night of pampering, drinking, eating, mingling and laughing.  In our Princeton location we will have spa professionals from The Face and Body Spa of Yardley PA for hair assessments and chair massages, as well as make-up application.  Discover amazing skin care products from Ava Anderson Non Toxic, and jewelry from Origami Owl.  If you have not heard of Origami Owl, let me just tell you, it is all the rage right now!  Artemis Boutique from Forrestal Village will also be joining us with incredible art, glass, and jewelry.  

For all of our ladies who like to get crafty and design floral arrangements, we will be creating flower doggies (have you seen them yet!? – adorable!)  We are very excited to be donating all floral arranging proceeds to SAVE Animal Rescue of Princeton.  And you know we would never host a Ladies Night Out without wine and refreshments!  Along with these fabulous vendors, we will be having great in-store discounts just in time for Fall and holiday decorating, and raffles you will not want to miss!  Why not bring a friend, sister, or mom?  We always have a great time at our in-store events, and are excited to have other local businesses joining us to make this night extra special.

All of Your Prom Corsage and Boutonniere Questions- Answered!

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…
