Scenes from the Shop Mid December!

It's that time of year. Can you believe it's less than 2 weeks to Christmas? It's warm outside today as I write this but it's very festive and wintry at the shop. Here's a peek into our world this month!
This morning I added a table of gift ideas and stocking stuffers under $10. Candy, nuts and cookies along with ornaments, mugs, figurines and more.  
This week's $5 Friday were winter bouquets of carnations, thistle berries and baby's breath.  
We still have lots of Christmas signs, boxwood trees and wreaths.  
Today we made a star arch for an awards breakfast. 
We just got in some new jewelry like this stone necklace for only $9.99 
Gold mercury glass is all the rage and we have them in different shapes and sizes.  
It's the time of year when Bling is In!  
Lots and lots of poinsettia's waiting to be delivered in the drivers ramp.  
On December 7th we hosted a holiday centerpiece design class and the ladies had a ball. This was a private class organized by a "Ladies Night Out" organization. 
December is a very popular month for balloon centerpieces. Heena and Alanna are hard at work and taking a minute to pose for me! This is actually the view from my desk. :)
Earlier in the month we had a small Wreath Making Class and the ladies did such a great job! 
As per usual, we handled quite a few weddings this month. I really loved the look of Abby's bouquet below....
And I thought the centerpieces we helped bride Alexa and her planner Mary Bradley create were perfect for the Rosebank Winery location!  

Last but not least we have done quite a few family funerals this month. Always a sad thing during the holidays but we hope they bring comfort, like this piece created for a Harley Davidson Motorcycle fan. 
Well, there you have it, just a few things going on in the shop this month. Merry Christmas 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…
