Meet Heena ~ our longest running employee

It's hard to believe but Miss Heena has been working at MMF for over 15 years! Yikes, where has the time gone. Let's find out a little more about this hard working woman!
MMF: You have a cute British accent. Where are you from?
Heena:  Although I was born in Nairobi, Kenya but then I moved to London when I was 4 years old - hence the British Accent.
MMF: When did you move to the United States and why?
Heena: I came here in 1993 and moved with my husband!
MMF: You have 2 beautiful children; a girl who's in her last year of college and son who just started his second year (both Rutgers - go Scarlet Knights). What is your favorite part about having two kids in college.
Heena: I'm love having a bit more time for myself but I miss then a lot. It's a bit easier to just cook for myself and my husband. I'm proud of the adults they are becoming.
MMF: What's your favorite part about working in the Flower Shop?
Heena: I love everything. I love the flowers, being surrounded by beautiful flowers from nature. It's very inspiring. I also like helping customers being I'm usually the first to handle the call ins. Every day is different so there is no time to get bored.
MMF: What is your favorite design being offered by MMF?
Heena: I really like "Green with Envy" ~ I really love the green cymbidium orchids and the simplicity of the style. If it's my birthday feel free to send me that one!
MMF: You've been at MMF a long time. What has been the biggest change for you over the years?
Heena: The biggest change was going from being paper based to using a computer. It was stressful at first but now I can't imagine going back to the old ways of writing everything down. Our computer holds so much information right at our finger tips and it really helps us to provide better service to our customers.
MMF: It's funny you should say that being we are updating to a brand new system today and are back to writing everything down until it's up and running later today!! Well thank you Heena for your 15+ years of service to MMF!!

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…
