Floral Favorite's for Valentine's Day

The best part about working in the flower shop during a holiday is seeing all the specialty flowers arrive. Truthfully, we wish we could have these amazing blooms in all year long but alas, the more expensive varieties are a bit out of every day range for us. This week we had Japanese Sweet Peas arrive in and they are spectacular. They smell amazing and their delicate two tones petals would set any girls heart aflutter.  Not as unusual to have in the shop during non-holiday times would be full size cymbidium orchid blooms but this week they are unusually lovely . In shades of red, pink and white, a single stem is a work of art unto itself, would you agree?   We're still taking order for Valentine's Day Delivery but you really need to place your order soon to get these lovely blooms! 

A Wedding From Years Past

Don't ask me to tell you when we did this wedding, but needless to say it was quite a few years ago. Although, I believe the brides name was Grace (I could be wrong but it's one of my favorite names and so it was memorable to me) I remember these bouquets like it was yesterday. This photo was taken at Mountain Lakes House, right here in pretty Princeton. The bridal bouquet was created in a gold handled bouquet holder using all green cymbidium orchids and stephanotis flowers. I especially loved the brides maids flowers which were hand tied bouquets of Black Bacarra roses, green cymbidium orchids, deep burgundy mini callas and accents of green hypericum berries. Back on my radar again because when meeting with Bride Jackie the other night, these bouquets just might be perfect for her brides maids to carry. What's old is new again I guess!
