3 Alternatives to Red Roses this Valentine's Day

We love red roses but let's face it, they are very expensive during the Valentine's Day season. Although  we do NOT raise our prices for the holiday, the rose quality is not as good as other times of the year so here are a few other options we think they will love! Take our Classic English Blooms - this design is Stunning with a capital S! The floral design is lush, elegant and full. Blue hydrangea, pink lilies and purple stock arranged in a 12" tall classic ming vase. Another sweet design and very affordable is our Puffy Heart Mug filled with pink roses, white daisies and lavender waxflowers and white monte casino accents. Add a teddy bear and a balloon and you have a adorable gift that will cost you 1/2 of what a dozen red roses would be.  Last but not least, instead of sending traditional roses, why not send an amazing "heart" anthurium plant garden? This "Wow" gift is not only unique but long lasting. Choose between sending a set of 2 or j

Fairy Gardens

I have a confession to make. I love fairies. I also love angels. I also love anything miniature so you can imagine these little fairy gardens are perfect for me. Well, actually they are not for me, they are for our customers but I had fun making them.  What is a fairy garden?  A  Fairy Garden  is a miniature   garden   complete with structures and actual living plants. It is designed to give your green thumb a place to tend year-round and to lure  fairies  and with them, good luck, to your home. It's a tiny space created and tended with love.   Don't you think they adorable? The one above has a beach theme complete with a "mini" palm tree, sand and a gravel ocean.   This little fairy is enjoying her time in the garden complete with a pinwheel, colorful mushrooms, tiny polka dot plants and a wishing well.   This little gnome is lighting the way. Can't you imagine his standing at the lakes edge guiding a row boat to shore?  We haven't

The video below is from a Facebook Live post I did today to show some of our fresh floral arrivals. Which flower is your favorite?

Alanna's New Arrivals ~ she shares her favorites with Alex

Many of our regular blog readers should be familiar with our fabulous and energetic customer care coordinator Alanna! Today I caught her with a free moment and noticing how many new items we have in stock decided to pick her brain about some fresh favorites! We had a fun "Christmas In July" event last month and showcased some of the awesome new Holiday items we have; one of Alanna's top picks was this unique take on an Advent calendar/Christmas count down! The blackboard in the middle allows you and your family to track the days until "Santa comes," and the best part is, since you write in the number of days yourself you can start tracking Santa's arrival ASAP! Woo! Just because I mentioned Christmas doesn't mean it's time to lament the end of summer just yet! Alanna loved this playful and summery yellow checkered handbag and so do I! It's the perfect gift for that special someone in your life with a sunny disposition (maybe you perhaps?) and
