Memorial Flowers ~ a trend in funerals

MEMORIAL LUNCHEON AND DINNER FLOWERS ~ A TREND IN FUNERALS Memorial luncheon and dinner flowers are the latest trend in funerals allowing people a chance to grieve and celebrate a life well lived.  How like the flower business to go from one blog post that talks about wedding trends to sympathy trends. Although honoring the life of a loved one during wakes and viewings is important, many families are opting to host larger events such as luncheons and dinners. For example, the pieces below are for a luncheon being held in honor or a wonderful man who spent many years of his life as an artist. The family believes he really would have enjoyed both the vibrant tones and the unique blooms. 4 of these designs shown below will be for small cocktail tables and include exotic flowers such as bird of paradise, protea and orchids. The host venue is going to be Grounds for Sculpture out in Hamilton/Trenton. If you have never been there, it's an amazing setting and these flowers will re

Amazing Summer Flowers at Our Shop

Amazing Summer Flowers at our store in Princeton, NJ. The one thing that never gets old for me is viewing pretty  flowers . When I go on vacation, I stop to look at flowers. When I'm at home, I read flower books. When I'm at work, I ooohh and aahh over the pretty stems in the shop. Let's face it, my job is pretty awesome! A big part of my daily responsibilities is sharing our products on Social Media and that is no hard task! Imagine being a plumber or lawyer? Talk about having a "hard" product to showcase. Luckily, I have not only brightly color blooms but fun and inspirational giftware to show.  This  summer  the sunflowers have been spectacular and the other flowers aren't shabby either. This design includes other flowers such as spray roses, tea roses, stock, spider mums and even tropical protea. Designer Alanna got this pretty shot on the side walk looking down. We're thinking that whoever gets this design is gonig to be pretty happy about it.

Meet Heena ~ our longest running employee

It's hard to believe but Miss Heena has been working at MMF for over 15 years! Yikes, where has the time gone. Let's find out a little more about this hard working woman! MMF: You have a cute British accent. Where are you from? Heena:   Although I was born in Nairobi, Kenya but then I moved to London when I was 4 years old - hence the British Accent. MMF: When did you move to the United States and why? Heena: I came here in 1993 and moved with my husband! MMF: You have 2 beautiful children; a girl who's in her last year of college and son who just started his second year (both Rutgers - go Scarlet Knights). What is your favorite part about having two kids in college. Heena: I'm love having a bit more time for myself but I miss then a lot. It's a bit easier to just cook for myself and my husband. I'm proud of the adults they are becoming. MMF: What's your favorite part about working in the Flower Shop? Heena: I love everything. I love the flow

Meet Arlene - The Official Mother of MMF!

Here at the shop , not only are there 2 Vinicombe's running the store ~ my husband Kevin and myself, of course but did you know that Kevin's Mother Arlene also works at the shop? 7 or 8 years ago when she retired from her Corporate Position, she joined us as a Sales Associate and she learned about the business from the ground up. Although she was also supportive of us, she was even more so when she realized how hard we worked! She ended up working almost full time for about 5 years before she went to part time working for Kevin in the office helping him with bookkeeping and office management duties.  This week and I took a quick photo of Mother and Son hard at work in the office. At Monday Morning Flower and Balloon Co, it truly is all in the family!
