Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas for Men to Their Ladies

Do  you have a special anniversary coming up ~ 5 years, 10 years maybe even 25 years? Well, we have
some really great ideas for you!

Take past Groom Ellis for example? This past week was he and Tina's 5th wedding anniversary. What did he do to make the day special? He had us duplicate her bridal bouquet for her! What a sweet guy and what a great idea, right?

Can't remember what was in her bridal bouquet? Don't worry, any talented florist can take a peek at a photo and determine how it was made and what flowers were used. In the case of Tina and Ellis, we designed the original bouquet 5 years ago and so it was easily recreated.
 Wow, what about sending this? One hundred, yes I said 100, long stem red roses. Imagine the delivery arriving to her office and how amazing she will feel when all her coworkers see this!

Roses are the traditional anniversary flower and they speak of love but if red is not her color, why not send her assorted colors of roses like this but all pastels such as peaches, pale pinks, lavenders and buttery yellows. Or  perhaps she would love getting deep rich vibrant colors such as hot pink, sunny yellow, rich red and burnt orange. No matter the color, it's all about the size on this amazing rose arrangement.
Looking for something a little less dramatic (and perhaps a bit more cost effective? Why not send this martini glass filled with red roses. Don't you love the heart made out of blades of grasses? This is such a fun arrangement to send, especially paired off with an elegant night out on the town beginning with dinner and then a romantic walk.

Flowers always make a thoughtful gift that will be remembered for a lifetime. They are perfect for just about any occasion but when you want to send words of love, flowers really let you express your feelings.

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.

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…
