Easter Traditions

When I was a little girl, my mother used to take great pride in her Easter Egg Tree. Actually this was our birch tree in the front yard but she would add 100's of plastic Easter Eggs in different bright colors tied on with colorful ribbon. Of course, she had me stand in front of the tree for my Easter photo in my best Easter Dress. It wasn't the Easter season in my family until Mom decorated that tree. Easter is one of my favorite times in the shop because I love plush bunnies and colorful plastic eggs. Call it tacky but it reminds me of happy childhood memories. We always had at least one Easter Lily Plant in the house too!
When it comes to merchandising the store, I can't help but bring in giftware that makes me happy and this year is no exception. I especially loved these little chick salt and pepper shakers that came in this month. No Easter table is complete without them.
 Below is a cute egg platter, imagine deviled Easter Eggs displayed with the little chicks face peeking out!
 The Bunny Tea Pots are so cute. I love the little tulip on his back. We also have Easter Pens that are cute for the Grandkids and shelf signs. They would be perfect for the fireplace mantle.
 This month we also received in a shipment of bird houses like this one. They make a great gift also plus who wouldn't want this sweet bunny rabbit holding a flower?
In addition to the new gifts we have some gorgeous floral designs for the table such as this low and long centerpiece with candles. 
If you don't need a long centerpiece our Burlap Country Roads Arrangement would make a pretty centerpiece or would be perfect for a Kitchen Island or Coffee Table. 
If you don't want to send an Easter Lily, sending our Violets and Butterfly Basket would be an amazing choice.

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…
