Scenes from the Shop in Early July!

Hope you are all having a fabulous summer. The weather has been touch and go but the pace here at the shop has slowed down and now begins the work of cleaning, organizing and planning for the fall. Look for our listing of in store Design Workshops for the holiday seasons ahead being kicked off by our Christmas in July event on July 31st. More information on that later in the month! For now, the shop is full of gorgeous flowers and fun new gift items so I thought I'd share!
Happy 21st! We've had wine glasses for ladies now we have beer glasses for the guys!  
Ballet items sell all year round for us (must be because of the ballet studio here in the Village) so we've done a little Ballet themed display of figurines, bears, jewelry, mugs and frames!  
We love lace flower and this Green Mist is especially gorgeous this week!  
It's all about angels and girlie gift with fresh smelling candles from Aunt Sadies, teapots and cups and adorable signs for the home or garden.  
Moroccan Oil ~ scrubs, soaps, lotions and shampoos!  
Orchids from "Blooms" Farm are amazing and only $25 per bunch ~ now that really is a good deal.  
We are in love with the new line of silver mercury glass that just arrived. Design Alex also shows a very cool succulent garden in this display.  
Cranberry Viburnum Berries ~ these are over 4 feet tall!  
New ceramics arrived this this turquoise colored vase with a dahlia design on the front.  
It's never too early to start showing off the new Halloween Arrivals! Hope to see you soon!

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…
