Another Busy Weekend at the Flower Shop

First off, a super big thank you to all my staff who did an amazing job this Weekend arranging and setting up 4 weddings and multiple other events. Fall is certainly on it's way and this weekends events were a combination of late summer tones and early fall ones with shades of pinks and peaches once again. 
Anna's a bouquet was a natural blend of country style blooms such as a Queen Anne's lace, berries, gumphria, millet and eucalyptus along with elegant blooms such as ranunculus, tea roses, bouvardia, dahlias and freesia. I especially love the burlap ribbon treatment on the stems. Her bouquet smelled and looked amazing in person!  
Moving on to Heidi's bridal bouquet - hot raspberry pinks, greens and white in the form of roses, orchids, mini callas and ranuculus along with accents of rhinestone spray for a touch of bling.  
Moving on to Taotao's bridal bouquet in all shades of peach from light into dark using roses and mini callas.  
Moving on back to Anna's centerpieces at the Chauncey Conference Center - natural and free flowing, these centerpieces were a full size that was lush and lovely. Each was made a ceramic vase provided by the bride and styled a little bit at random for a more casual feel.  
Moving back to bright and pink Heidi, our tri candle holders were filled with clear and hot pink gems and a pink underwater light.  
Heidi and Sharif chose a more simple color combination for their Grand Arch outside in the Westin's Princeton courtyard. Decorated with fresh vines and ivy and accented with white hydrangea blooms.  
Ok, enough with the weddings, this Sunday party was so much fun and was a Bridal Shower! This event had us coming up with floral designs to fit the pale pink color and fashion theme for the bride. Little busts were provided by the family and gave the centerpieces something fun to view while sitting at the table. Lush and grand domes of all pale hydrangea added an elegant touch to this event at Stone House in Sterling, NJ.  
There you have, some fun events we provided this past weekend. Getting married or planning an event this fall? We'd love to work with you so why not give us a call at 609.520.2005 today!

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…
