Top 5 Reasons to Give Flowers as a Gift

Let's face it, sometimes deciding on a gift can be down right difficult. With so many options, it's easy to
become confused so that's why I have come up some awesome reasons to give the gift of Fresh Flowers!

Top 5 Reasons to Give Flowers as a Gift:

  1. We all have times when we need a gift for someone that we don't know all that well. Perhaps it's a coworker that is having a birthday at the office. Flowers are the perfect choice because everyone loves getting flowers. 92% of women can remember the last time they received flowers as a gift. Studies actually show that people who are surrounded by flowers at work are more productive. How's that for getting a co-worker to pull their weight, while making you memorable to them. 
  2. It's time to come clean. Sometimes you forget an important occasion like a birthday or anniversary, right? When you have no time to plan and need something fast ~ flowers to the rescue. Not only can they be delivered within a matter of hours (when ordered through your local florist, of course) but you will be thought of as "caring, thoughtful and emotionally intelligent" according to a Rutger's Study. That is some powerful stuff for a last minute gift option, wouldn't you say?
  3. Buying a gift for those who have it all can be hard. Grandma, we love her but she sure does not need anything. Receiving flowers make people feel special. Don't believe me? Well, it's true and a study done by the Society of American Florist proves it. Who wouldn't want to receive a gift that lifts their mood? For those who already have everything, flowers are the perfect affordable gift. 
  4. Men are so hard to buy for right? You think you can't send them a floral gift then think again. Men love getting flowers for the same reason they love to send them, to be recognized. Everyone like to feel special, even the guys in our life! 
  5. You deserve it, right? Why wait for someone to buy flowers for you when you can treat yourself now and again. Women often feel guilty about buying flowers for the home while men feel like it's a natural part of celebrating the weekend. Guys have the right idea! Flowers may not last forever but that is part of the fun. For a very modest cost, we can have a different color and/or fragrance in our home every week. Don't wait for someone to give you the gift of flowers, give them to yourself!

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.

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…
