Fall Flower of the Week

Fall flowers are my favorite.  They are so rich in color, the textures and styles of fall arrangements almost have a personality.  It is so amazing to me to see what flowers do for other people.  Just working at Monday Morning Flowers for almost a year, I have sent some of my family and friends arrangements throughout the year.  The responses I have gotten back are tears, smiles, hugs and happiness all around.  I had no idea what an impression flowers could make!  With Thanksgiving around the corner, I will be featuring a flower a week for you to get to know a little better until Thanksgiving week.  The hope is that you learn a little more about the gorgeous fall flowers we have in the shop. Like one of my featured flowers?  Give us a call, and have a beautiful bouquet of whatever you like sent to your family or friends – see what kind of impression you make – you won’t be disappointed.  Your thoughtfulness will shine and you will make someone feel extra special.


Today we got in gorgeous burgundy snapdragons.  This flower has extraordinary shape and texture, but my favorite part is the color.  It is the first time I have seen snapdragon in this deep red.  I love the shades of hot pink and orange we normally have – but this burgundy is so unique and seasonal.  California grown, this flower looks awesome in tall and airy arrangements, giving height and showing off vertical buds.  To order a fresh bouquet of snapdragons in any color – bright like hot pink or seasonal like burgundy – call us 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…

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…
