Wow Flowers!

So you are having an event and you want something for the tables but you don't have much money to spend? Well, big is not always better and when it down pop it out with color , color, color. Hey that could be a song, don't you think? Take these centerpieces for example; created for an event at Princeton University today. In this case a tight budget and a zillion tables (well, actually it was more like 80 but still a lot) meant that we had to really stand out with something that was going to be cost effective but memorable. Colorful gerbera daisies and underwater light to the rescue. These may not be huge but they sure are cute, don't you think?  

It's Just Another Day of Flowers

 I love giving sneak peeks into the shop and today has been an exciting one for sure. Lots and lots of colorful floral arrangements are leaving the shop. Many were ordered directly on our website... www.sendingsmiles.com and the phones just have not stopped ringing.  Lots and lots of last minute parties have come in this week such as this Murder Mystery centerpieces going over the Windrows (which is an active over 55 residence) and the centerpieces below for the Trenton Thunder Ball Park for their game tonight!  I posted this photo on Facebook and got over 45 likes almost immediately. I'm thinking they will be a hit for all those who see them. I love the mixture of flowers that arrived today, such as the mini calla lilies below. The stems are almost 28" long and the color is just so vibrant! Imagine these twirled down in the water of big cylinder vase!  The peony that arrived today on our Dutch shipment has an amazing coral color. They are just beginning to pop

Shades of Peach and Gray

There's no doubt... all of us that work here at the flower shop just love flowers. But truthfully, how can you look at this photo and not love them? Garden and tea roses, ranuculus and tulips combined with funky accents of scabiosa pods (those cool green ball things) and dusty miller (the silvery lambs ear looking foliage) make for an interesting floral display. In this case, a brides maids bouquet but honestly, who wouldn't want to receive this mixture of flowers in a low glass cube vase or a silver cylinder container? Next time you order flowers, why not let the florist go wild and get a bit "unconventional" for you? There's a big "floral" world out there waiting to be discovered!!
