MUMS are in fashion on the floral scene, so it’s time to reconsider them if you haven’t already. Banish any thoughts about the kinds that show up each September in garden centers. Instead think about varieties of chrysanthemums that lend themselves to surprise, flowers so elegant and aesthetically unusual that they beg a closer look. See what varieties farmer and florist Erin Benzakein grows in Washington’s Skagit Valley and how she combines them with other materials to make captivating arrangements that announce that FALL has clearly arrived.
Halloween is the second-largest holiday for decorating, second only to Christmas. And interest doesn’t seem to be waning. To entice some spooky shoppers into your floral business, demonstrate that your shop is in the spirit of the season by:
1. Decorating your shop in ghoulish hues, and accent your space with creepy cobwebs and other frightful fare, such as jack-o’-lanterns, black cats, and a mix of ghosts and goblins.
2. Wearing costumes the week of the holiday both in the shop and for deliveries. Attire can be as simple as a witch’s hat or a mask, or you can encourage your staff members to go all out — as long as they keep costumes tasteful.
3. Hosting a pumpkin painting or carving class or contest. Pick up some fresh pumpkins, and supply the tools necessary to complete cute or creepy jack-o’-lanterns. Offer a prize to the victors.
