Tip of the week....Florsits Review Magazine


Dazzle at delivery  

tip of the week from            Florists Review Magazine  September 30, 2013

Help delivery drivers ensure your designs arrive at their very best by having the right tools at hand.
Give drivers a jug of pre-mixed flower food to take in the back of delivery vehicles to add to arrangements upon arrival at their destination, if needed. A clean milk jug or other lidded container works great.
Any last-minute topping up is easily done to ensure that customers get the best vase life, and if any water has accidentally sloshed out of an arrangement, it is easily replaced. For arrangements more likely to spill during transit, you can underfill the container just slightly and then fill the rest of the way upon arrival.
Having a vase of extra flowers and foliages in the vehicle is also smart. Should an arrangement’s ingredients become broken or bruised in transit, it’s no emergency. A quick switchout or extra insertion ensures a seamless delivery.


~~We hope that designs arrive just as they left the shop...bottom line we want the best product/design to be in the hands of our customers.  These tips from FR can be helpful to make that all happen.

~~ Post other ideas you use in your shops to ensure the designs are looking 100% at arrival.

Jason & Nicole's wedding FLOWERS part 2

 All the girls....they looked amazing...and so did the bouquets!
 The Bridal Bouquet in a special vessel to sit at the head table and have as a keepsake after the wedding for fresh flowers.



 The Chuppah was made by my father, the kids were thrilled to have the ceremony take place under this structure.  Keeping it simple....Nicole is a beautiful Bride!  And Jason is very handsome....
 These are designs from the rehearsal dinner. I kept picking up old muffin pans and knew they would be fun on the table tops...then ran across the ceramic mint individual muffin cup!  Sometimes you luck out and it all comes together!!!  We took some of these vessels and set ups to create additional designs for the wedding reception....Staying within the budget and repurposing!
 Another special wooden table structure made by my father to elevate the vintage bottles with candle light.  These are my favorite table structures.....Lids from cans sprayed with chalk paint...tied to bottles with different messages.

 My Grandchildren!
Another wooden vessel made by my father with the test tubes wrapped in lace to take the contemporary vessel to a vintage look.

Nicole & Jason's Wedding Flowers 9-14-2013

 These are photo's I took after our set up for my son's wedding...Nicole's vision of a Vintage Chic design.  There are collections of antique vessels, family heirlooms, and unique details that were all about Family.  The Wedding and Reception was at Mildale Farm in Edgerton, Kansas, a unique venue.

 Lots of wonderful tea pots, cups and saucers, blue mason jars....just to name a few of the eclectic vessels that held fresh flowers.


 The Treat Room
 A special area was set up for a nice selection of treats for the guests...the bride and groom had a small cake set up on a vintage chest in the main room for the cake cutting.
 As you can tell, during the day it's quite bright in the venue....

 Cake Chest...a special place for the cake cutting and toss bouquet.
 Photo area...set for just a few or large groups.  The trunk is a family heirloom...my grandfather came to America from Italy with that trunk.  One of the special family items at the wedding.


 The Bar...6 bar top tables and a photo area with the couch and special touches to make that group photo one of a kind....and have fun!



 Flowers in the ladies and men's rooms....a wonderful built in shelf.
 Again all the samll details, special chairs, swags...a perfect head table for 6....set right in front of the dance floor.
Nicole tore and tied all of the rope with the assorted fabrics and lace...some vintage and some new right off the bolts....it had a great impact over the dance floor with the twinkle lights.

The Perfect mix....tip of the week

September 23, 2013         Florists Review Magazine Tip of the week

The perfect mix

img2
A colorful potpourri of fall favorites, such as gourds, persimmons, hazelnuts and sweet gum fruit, in inexpensive clear glass vases makes beautiful, seasonal decor for the shop or your clients. Eye-catching ingredient options are endless.
For the fastest and easiest way to get balanced layers of these varied elements, mix all the materials first in a large box and simply pour them into the vases.

Collect your favoirte mix of materials and put them on display....enjoy
