The amazing succulent

23 Feb

Succulent plants have been extremely popular for the past year or so and I just don’t see the trend ending anytime soon. Given the fact that they are super low maintenance and easy to grow, they really do make lasting gifts.

Succulent_nests

We receive requests for succulent gardens for a variety of occasions from retirement gifts to birthdays and expressions of sympathy. They seem to be the universal “living gift.”

Succulent_bowl2 Succulent_bowl1

Often, we will “dress up” the succulent bowl with fresh cut flowers bringing more color into the arrangement. As the blooms fade they can be plucked from the container without much fuss. Many of the flower varieties we select will even air dry and preserve.

Give us a call if you would like a design created just for you!

 

Creating Wrist Corsages for Petite Wrists

17 Feb

With the local “Daddy Daughter” dance less than a week away, wrist corsage orders are coming in for girls ages 4 and up who will be escorted by their fathers. Corsages are one of our specialties however, in the past it has been a challenge to create petite designs that won’t slip off the wrist. The traditional elastic wristlets are just too large. This season I have the answer!

Ribbon_corsage

Wrist corsages created on wide ribbon bands can be tied to the wrist and then the ends of the ribbon can be snipped.

Corsage_daddy_daughter

Petite wrists call for petite corsages and this ribbon technique allows for a perfect fit.

Available in a variety of colors and flower varieties. Just let us know the color of her dress.

Please order as early as possible to give us plenty of time to customize her corsage!
