Plant Gift Ideas for New Years

One of the best parts of starting a brand new year, is that feeling of starting over. The best way to freshen up your life at home and at work is with a fresh plant. Here are a few ideas to help you celebrate 2015 and treat yourself to a little positive energy! 
Designer Holly just made this goblet of succulent plants for a customer who was taking it as a gift. Don't you just love the look? The texture of these different succulents combined in the over sized brandy snifter really make this an appealing planter combination. Call us to send this as a gift or to have us make one for you!  
Violets~ Aren't these stunning. Their fuzzy deep green leaves and brightly colored purple flowers are sure to brighten any location. Although violets do require a certain amount of indirect light and care, for those with a green thumb, they are a stand out.  
I often hear ~ "I'm not good with orchids, I kill them". Well, no you didn't kill it, it bloomed and then it went dormant, which is what the plant does naturally. Once bloomed enjoy this amazing plant in your home or office for 4-6 weeks and then once the flowers die off, just cut the spike down, add water occasionally and put on a sunny window and watch a brand new spike coming up with new buds. Not sure how to care of any of the above plants? Just google care instructions, it's not that hard. Now go out and treat yourself to a nice plant to kick of the new year!

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…
