Kristin's Top Picks

There are so many awesome things at Monday Morning Flowers, I have a hard time narrowing it down.  My all-time favorite arrangements are almost always custom made.  Our designers are so creative and unique, their pieces always come out beautifully.  I have worked here at Monday Morning Flowers a little over a year, and I still can’t believe the finished products sometimes!  When I decided to give my top picks, I chose products from our website, which has so many gorgeous arrangements- it was of course, a challenge to decide.  Here are some of my favorite floral arrangements at Monday Morning Flowers.  In my opinion, the pictures don’t even do justice – these are all stunning in person and will please anyone from a floral expert to a floral novice.

Lemon Martini

Of course, I LOVE the container!  You can send this to the 21 year old or the 80 year old in your life and it is sure to be a hit.  We do a lot of different styles in margarita and martini glasses, but the Lemon Martini is filled with bright, happy, uplifting yellows.  Artfully designed with yellow daisies, yellow roses, solidago and alstroemeria – it is sure to make anyone smile. 
MMF046 - $39.99

Alanna's Garden

This is one of my absolute favorites.  The combination of pastels is feminine and elegant.  My favorite thing about the whole arrangement is the positioning of the flowers in this short bubble bowl.  It is classy, and gives a “fancy” feel, yet can be sent to the home or office.  This is the perfect arrangement for Spring!
MMJ001 - $144.99

The Palmer

Straight from our Princeton Line, the Palmer has a gorgeous mix of colors and flowers with a full look everyone is pleasantly shocked with.  Filled with oranges, yellows, greens, purples and pinks in a modern cylinder vase, this arrangement comes in the Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior sizes.
MMP003- $79.99

Aside from the floral arrangements (that I awe over daily) we have some really fun gift ideas.  Here are my top 2 favorites:

Flower Box of Cookies

Is this serious?!  This is the best thing anyone could give or get in my opinion.  Our flower box of cookies is a rose box filled with fresh baked cookies that people constantly rave over.  They are soft, delicious and make the most scrumptious gift for him, her, or the kids.  Order 20, 30, or 50 cookies and you’re done trying to find the perfect gift – it’s that quick and easy.
MMF033- $39.99

Wooster and Prince Line

New to our store, we now carry a special line called Wooster and Prince.  Very affordable, these can be gifted to a 5 year old or a 75 year old (or to yourself) and make a unique and fun gift.  Mix and match nail files, clipper and nail buffer, pocket mirror and fragrant home sachet.

Keep a look out for weekly top picks from all of the staff here at Monday Morning Flowers – from drivers to designers – everyone’s got a favorite!

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…
