Plants, Plants and More Plants.

It's funny how product we sell goes in cycles and right now folks are all wanting plants. As you may know, we make our own dish gardens, terrariums and planters and last week plants arrived from our Greenhouse Suppliers 3 times. Each time, they practically flew off the shelves with bromeliads, violets and mini calla lily plants being the best sellers.  Imagine Designer Norman's face when this new Terrarium House arrived on Friday. He went right to work creating a little garden inside. This one is quite large and sells for 159.95 so if you are looking for a unique and special gift idea, this might be the perfect thing for you. These pretty gardens are not available on our website but we'd be happy to create one just for you so give us a call at 609-520-2005.  This morning new tropical plants arrived including these mini bromeliads and they are just so colorful. Easy  to care for, these are the perfect little hostess or corporate gift. To see more examples of our pl

It's Boss's Week

Well, better late than never to mention that it's Boss's Week and it ends tomorrow. Never heard of the holiday? Well, you might think it was invented by Hallmark but actually it was "invented" by  Patricia Bays Haroski. She registered "National Boss' Day" with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in 1958. She was working as a secretary for State Farm Insurance Company in Deerfield, Illinois at the time and chose October 8 because she forgot that the birthday of her boss, who was her father, was actually on the 16th. Four years later, in 1962, Illinois Governor  Otto Kerner  backed Haroski's registration and officially proclaimed the day. So there you have it! Boss's Day is October 16th but here at our shops we celebrate it the whole week and believe it or not, it's quite a busy week for us. With all those employees out there that who appreciate everything their Boss does for them (even I get Boss's Day gifts every year), it's the perfect

Tropical Blooms

Well, our shop is most definately not located in the tropics but look how fun it is to make an arrangement like this. Tropical bird of paradise, protea, anthirium, dendrobium orchids and other elements such as croton leaves, liatris and river cane combine to make a spectacular arrangement with a touch of the islands!

Poinsettias as Gifts

Every year Kevin and I sit down to make up our holiday gift list for our own customers. Talk about a long list, as we are lucky enough to have many wonderful customers! This year we decided to do a combination of chocolates and poinsettias. I love to have fun with our corporate gifts as a way of showing our clients some new and unusual things. Of course red poinsettias area always popular but this year we sent out some white ones, like this one and also some Cinnamon colored ones that were almost a copper color. What raves reviews we received too! We also have done in the past large red poinsettia trees and once again, folks really loved getting them. The biggest compliment we get to a gift is when someone calls to thank us and then asks us to send the same thing to their client. The holidays are a busy time for us, but we really do try to take the time to show our customers how much we appreciate their business!! Tis the Season!!
