The Flower Box


A sympathy design that bring the outdoors indoors.  This particular design was given to us to create for a funeral services.  It is designed in a plastic window box.  Make sure the holes are not punched out or the water will leak out of the bottom of the container.  You can use any types of florals, but this one called for all vibrant colors which I liked because it is so summery.  At the base of the inside of the container is wet floral foam to design the flowers in.  It has tall linear flowers, small bud flowers, round bud flowers and lilies.  This particular design features gerberas, delphinium, glads, lilies, daisys, roses, spray roses, snapdragons and carnations.  The base is covered with greenery and sheet moss.  This would be a great idea for a patriotic piece or a pastel assortment as well.  The flowers are all facing forward as would happen is a true window box.  Next time you are interested in a design that is real show stopper and unique consider this design.  Your Florist can help!  http://www.bloomsflowershop.NET

Busy Bee Time


You think the January after the holidays would be a quiet time at a Flower Shop.  But it is not.  January means two things.  #1 Year End, #2 Valentines Day.  Immediately following December 31st we box up all Christmas and set up Valentines Day Displays.  Once that is complete, all Valentine Feature Arrangements for the Shop need to be created, photographed and posted on-line for future purchases.  Once the designs are created, merchandise is ordered and prep work is done,  it is time to move onto year end bookkeeping and reporting.  If you know of someone who is a Bee Bee in January, a pretty springy mixed bouquet with a fun little bee flying from it is perfect.  I like that this one has a mixture of bright colors and pastels with a touch of laciness from the babys breath.  Finished with a fun mix of tulle and plaid this design is sure to keep the busy bee in your life buzzing!  See your Florist and they will help you with your creation .
