Kristin's Top Picks

There are so many awesome things at Monday Morning Flowers , I have a hard time narrowing it down.  My all-time favorite arrangements are almost always custom made.  Our designers are so creative and unique, their pieces always come out beautifully.  I have worked here at Monday Morning Flowers a little over a year, and I still can’t believe the finished products sometimes!  When I decided to give my top picks, I chose products from our website , which has so many gorgeous arrangements- it was of course, a challenge to decide.  Here are some of my favorite floral arrangements at Monday Morning Flowers.  In my opinion, the pictures don’t even do justice – these are all stunning in person and will please anyone from a floral expert to a floral novice.

Fall Flower of the Week - Sunflowers!

Sunflowers – gorgeous, uplifting and perfect for fall (yes, that’s right, not only a summer favorite!)  The sunflower is a happy, bright and beautiful flower that is not only used for its aesthetic appeal - although they look very cute with a eyes and a smile in this arrangement, "Six Pack of Sunshine," made by Designer Norman. Cheaper than olive oil, sunflower oil can be used to make butter, margarine, peanut butter, “sunflower bread”, biodiesel, and was used by American Indians for bread, ointments, dye and body paint.  With its big, bright appearance, the sunflower always adds a little bit of joy to any floral arrangement.

Want a cup of coffee?

I love exploring how flowers look in the home. Here at the shop we see flowers all day long but exactly how are they displayed once received by happy folks lucky enough to be send a floral gift? This cute arrangement made by designer Rocio was just perfect in my own kitchen. In case you can't tell, blue is my favorite color as you can see when you visit our shop website http://www.sendingsmiles.com/ What I love about a floral gift like this one is that long after the flowers are gone, the coffee mug lives on to be used over and over. I'm envisioning a sweet little ivy plant or a cute "chicks and hen" succulent in there after the flowers are gone. Perhaps I'll just use it for a big cup of coffee! The next time you need to send a gift, we sincerely hope you'll consider a floral gift like this one! To see more of our floral gifts visit our website at http://www.sendingsmiles.com/
