Autumnal Roses

Roses sell 12 months out of the year but we admit that fall colored rose designs just might be our favorite. This arrangement made by our Lead Designer Alanna has yellow, coral, orange and two toned yellow with red tip roses accented with fall leaves, hypericum berries, fresh lemon leaves and huckleberry foliage.  Want to see more of our rose selection?

Falling for Orange Flowers

Are you a fan of Orange flowers? Here at the shop, we sure are and not just during the fall season. Orange is popular all year round and this week we have some amazingly beautiful orange flowers in stock. Roses are always so pretty in orange but those orange mango mini callas, pincushion protea, gerbera daisies and tropical banksia are especially beautiful.  What is your favorite orange flower ? We'd love to know!

Fall Flower of the Week - Pincushion Protea!

This week’s fall flower of the week is the unique and funky pincushion protea!  This flower has incredible texture and adds a special element of beauty to any arrangement.  Protea comes in red, orange and yellow, and is normally used in tropical style arrangements.  As you can see here, it looks gorgeous in Fall arrangements as well (which is why I picked it to be the flower of the week!)  With its completely original look, the protea is always appreciated for its funky style.  Its tones are perfect for autumn, and it makes a beautiful gift for the less traditional flower lover.            Stop in today to pick up an arrangement to include the gorgeous protea we have in the store , or send to someone you care about.  Call us today at 609-520-2005 or search “protea” on our website to see some of our online arrangements.

Fall Weddings - Affordable Flower Options

Well, it finally felt like fall around here this past weekend, starting with Wei Jen's bridal bouquet of mango mini callas, rust football mums, solidago, seeded eucalyptus, red carnations, hypericum berries and spray roses. The mums really help with the texture and keep the cost down while the mango mini callas and roses make for a more upscale vibe.  I especially loved the bouquets we made for Colleen's brides maids ~a simple hand tie of 3 medium sized sunflowers. Affordable and super cute! A great bouquet option if you have less than $25 to spend on each attendant.  Here's another affordable brides maids bouquet idea ~ 3 anthurium tied with grasses. Small but with a tropical, funky feel, these ran under $40 per maid.  Looking for something unusual? These bouquets of all pincushion protea really give variety and depth of color all in one very neat flower. Although not as low cost as those above, these bouquets are sure to stand out and get noticed in pictures.

Fall Flower of the Week

Fall flowers are my favorite.  They are so rich in color, the textures and styles of fall arrangements almost have a personality.  It is so amazing to me to see what flowers do for other people.  Just working at Monday Morning Flowers for almost a year, I have sent some of my family and friends arrangements throughout the year.  The responses I have gotten back are tears, smiles, hugs and happiness all around.  I had no idea what an impression flowers could make!  With Thanksgiving  around the corner, I will be featuring a flower a week for you to get to know a little better until Thanksgiving week.  The hope is that you learn a little more about the gorgeous fall flowers we have in the shop . Like one of my featured flowers?  Give us a call, and have a beautiful bouquet of whatever you like sent to your family or friends – see what kind of impression you make – you won’t be disappointed.  Your thoughtfulness will shine and you will make someone feel extra special. Today we g

Sunny Yellow Flowers

They say there is a hurricane coming but for now this bright and sunny bridal bouquet that we created for bride Jennie this past weekend is a beacon of sunshine, don't you think? I love all the fall colors and monochromatic floral designs for events and everyday are super popular right now, with Yellow leading the pack. We've added lots of new arrangements to our website for Fall so if you know someone under the weather or having a birthday , be sure to check out what is new. Here's  hoping that Hurricane Sandy is more hype than wind and rain! 

Fall is in the Air

It's officially fall here at the shop. Some folks think we rush it but as soon as we put out the fall products and merchandise our website with fall arrangements, they start selling. Take this dramatic floral arrangement for example:  It's one of our brand new designs for fall 2012. It's named   Autumn Expressions  and retails for only $42.95. The orange  cube vase makes such a nice keepsake and these rich autumnal colors really pop. Imagine this being delivered to you at work or home? We especially love the assortment of flowers and the dried wheat! Folks have also been starting to buy our Halloween and Thanksgiving table top pieces such as chip and dips, salt and pepper shakers, dried wreaths, wine glasses, pitchers, cookies jars and more.

What's New at the Shop?

Ok, ok, I know what you thinking. Why do you have Christmas product displayed at the shops already?? Right, come on, you were thinking it. I could hear you through my computer but honestly it's because people seem to want to buy it. Take these pretty ornaments that just came in. The first day we displayed them, someone came in and bought 2 right off the bat!   Another cute product to arrive are the funny, little pillows and matching coffee mug - nice until proven naughy, the nice list is over-rated. How cute! How could we not put them out when they make us laugh just reading them.    Above and below is some of our fall products. Every year at this time we bring back our peanut brittle - yum and our fall and winter scented candles from Yankee Candles.  Don't forget about our $5 Friday specials. Each Friday we have a special floral deal for only $15. Last week we had mixed bouquets that normally would sell for $15 for only $5 bucks. You can't beat that!  Popcorn, popcorn

Flowers for the Home

We love creating flowers for special events, especially ones that take place in the home. What fun it is to match the colors and style of a room. Today we set up flowers for one of our bridal families. Because they are expecting many guests at the home starting tonight and all through the wedding weekend, they thought it would be a nice touch to add flowers in various parts of the house. This piece was created for the dining room table and matches the decor and colors of the room. This next arrangement greeted guests as they entered the home. We used flowers such as chocolate anthiurum, free spirit roses, safari sunset and pincushion protea, curly willow branches along with seeded eucalyptus and bronze colored cushion mums. The flowers add a cozy feel to an already lovely home, don't you think?
