Five Design Steps and Seven Ways to sell Advent Wreaths
November begins this week. Soon the holidays will be here! 

Which means this is the time to promote and sell Advent wreaths and DIY wreath kits. Since their first recorded appearance in Germany in 1839, Advent wreaths have become widely popular in Europe. 

They remain an untapped revenue source in most US flower shops—and an opportunity for you to become the number one resource of holiday wreaths designs and materials in your area. 

Non-traditional decorative wreaths have also gained popularity through the ages.  

However people celebrate the holidays, one of the joys of the season is bringing people together through their traditions of choice. We can support the celebrations with floral designs! 

Use Smithers-Oasis Design Director Sharon McGukin's five design steps and seven ways to introduce Advent wreaths to your clientele this holiday season in this edition of IDEA Weekly.

14 Bewitching Halloween Arrangements with Midnight Foam
October 16, 2018 

Vampires wear it. Bats, cats and spiders can be it. Authentic witches’ cauldrons only come in it.

But as the 14 elegant designs here clearly show, the black in Midnight Floral Foam is more delightful than frightful when it comes to creating Halloween floral designs.

Why black foam for your Halloween (and fall) floral designs?

As Sharon OASIS Floral Design Director Sharon McGukin writes in this week's IDEA Weekly blog, you can create visual depth with black foam. You can also use Midnight foam as a design element without adding time and materials to wrap, spray or cover green foam. 

And …

Black is Elegant
Think of Midnight as the little black dress of floral foam. While green foam is still the workhorse, black foam takes designs upscale. You’re not going to wear it everywhere, but everyone should have it in their repertoire.

And black and Halloween go together like pretty and flowers.

To help you bewitch your prospects, see the 14 Halloween and fall designs using Midnight, six of them with recipes, along with floral mechanics tips in this week's blog.
