When ordering an arrangement one thing that you will need to decide is whether you will be including a vase or not. Here are a few tips in how to choose whether you want a cut bouquet or a vase arrangement.
Vase arrangements are suggested when you are sending the flowers to hospitals, places of work or care homes. It is difficult to know if they will have a vase on hand so we recommend making sure by including a vase. The benefits of including a vase is that long after the flowers last the vase does as a keepsake that they can re-use over and over again.
Cut bouquets are a great idea for dinner parties, for a quick pick up at one of our stores or if the flowers will be delivered straight to someones home. Most people have a vase on hand that they can place the flowers in. All they need to do it re-cut them and place them in the water! The nice thing about cut bouquets is that you are spending money on the flowers alone without the additional cost of the vase. You get your value out of the flowers.

It is nearly time for Spring cleaning! We are so looking forward to the sunshine, seeing the snow melt and enjoying the longer days. What often comes with those things is cleaning out the house of clutter, opening up a window for some fresh air and getting rid of the things that winter has left behind. One of the best ways to add light and freshness to a space is house plants. Whether you are a green thumb or not we have something for you! From ivy’s (that require watering once a week and can be in a sunny or shady spot) to a succulent/cactus garden that requires only a spritz of water every few weeks. Add a new addition to your coffee table, nightstand or office desk and invite Spring into your home.
We have some new and beautiful pieces in the shop that are the perfect way to add interest to a space. These arrangements are perfect for corporate offices, hotels, and businesses and won’t ever go bad! Inquire today about your lasting arrangement! Pictured is one of 3 different styles!
