What's New in the Shop ~ Valentine's Day and Beyond

If you've been in our shop over the last year or so, we may have noticed that we've really expanded our product lines. In addition the usual Flower Shop items we have expanded into new home decor and fashion lines including scarves, like this one shown below. Recently we brought in a wide selection of late winter and Spring scarves in all colors of the rainbow. I think this black and red scarf below would make an adorable gift for Valentine's day, right? 
Another line we recently added was some items from Primal Elements, which include these perfume rollettes. These are compact enough to store in your handbag and dab when you are on the go will have you smelling delightful in no time! 
In 2014 we added Moonstruck Chocolates to our gourmet line and this week we added these amazing chocolate Barks. This bar has Rasberries and Fennel Sugar and looks like a work of art!  
We did so well with our red rose light up pens that we just brought in a line of spring colors flower pens. So far they are selling well and at only $3.99 per pen, they make a fun gift for the little girl or fun loving women in your life!  
With Mother's Day on the horizon, I brought in a line of Mother and Grandmother gifts like this hanging plaque that says "Moms are like buttons, they hold everything together". The price point on this line is just right.  
In addition we added a line of family orient items such as sign, picture holders and more with spring themes and family sayings like this one that says Family ~ where life begins and love never ends. Soft pastel colors of flowers and butterflies have these selling well so far.  
Everyone loves wine and these wine themed gifts make great gifts for birthday's and anniversaries. These are wine corks with fun sayings and are very reasonably priced.  
Fun signs and plaques for home or office too!  
Scarves in all colors of the rainbow, very soft and sweet make a great addition to any outfit or can even be used as a belt.  
More Primal Elements products, these candles smell amazing and when lit glow like stained glass.  
We did so well with our last line of Lucite flower pens we brought in these calla lily pens. Everyone loves calla lilies!  
In addition to the light and airy scarves, we brought in some Earth Tones ones as well. These buttery soft but still light weight enough for late winter and early spring. 
Angels, our customer love them so we brought in a few in pastel colors for those spring occasions like new baby's, Mother's Day and Easter.  
Well, there you have it, just showing a few new items that recently arrived in the store. Have a great weekend all!!

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…
