Narcissus Cheerfulness: The blooms of ‘Cheerfulness‘ feature creamy white petals sheltering light yellow centers.

It’s always easier to choose flowers for the orders we already received because I know what we need, but many times, I find myself guessing and assuming what kind of flowers our customers would like this week. Colors, types, textures, and so on. I keep asking myself “should I buy this or that” questions, then I came to this conclusion: Get the flowers that are talking to you!

I was at a flower wholesaler yesterday to get some flowers and found a little dainty darling flower, Narcissus Cheerful. So cute and lovely, commonly used for the bridal/attendants’ bouquets. I was looking at them and hesitating to pick them up. “It’s still too cold this week for our customers to be looking for this spring time flower so let’s buy it in a couple of weeks,” I thought. So I picked other flowers and went to the check out table and to my surprise, I was standing in front of Cheerful again! I felt like they were talking to me. I couldn’t leave them behind, so they came with me and now are in our floral cooler, smiling. I wondered who, if anyone, will bring these little ones back with them to their homes.

A customer came in this morning, looking for some flowers for her daughter who just had twin baby girls. Guess what she liked? Cheerful.

She wanted this small, creamy, light yellowish flowers with peach sweetheart roses and purple Anemones in the arrangement. I shared my little story with the customer and she was smiling and saying, “Someone knew I was coming!”

Yes, I knew someone would love this flower, but was wondering who and which occasion would be for. This was all meant for new born twin baby girls!

Look at the flowers close enough to hear.

They are talking, indeed!

It’s almost June and Summer has just begun. But still chilly here and still need long sleeve shirts. Strange. Summer seems to come a bit later than usual, but soon we will dive into the hot and dry summer season. Even though I’m kind of  a winter lover, “Summer” definitely makes people excited. Lots of outdoor activities feeling the vibrant sunlight.

For me, one of the fun summer activities is enjoying Succulents. Of course, they are year-round plants, but I love them more and also they look more lovely in the summertime. They literally come in all shapes and sizes. Fleshy, skinny, round, oval, big, tiny.. They look all different, but all of them are very hardy. If I’d say roses are like a beautiful woman who put on flawless makeup and expensive perfume, succulents are like a woman in comfortable yet stylish outfit with no makeup on. That’s the very beauty of succulents. They always make me smile and relaxed.

It’s their season, it’s Summertime.

Here are some Floral Arrangements, you might be interested in taking a look at! For the arrangement below we used Parrot Tulips as our main flower. We paired it with some lime green Viburnums for accents. The parrot tulip is not average looking flower, and the color is very different as well, which attracts the attention of anyone. We were very pleased with the finished look for this arrangement as were many of our customers! We’re going to continue making arrangements with parrot tulips.

For the arrangement below we wanted to try something a little different from the average everyday looking arrangements. We used Purple Vanda Orchids, and Flax Leaves.

The vase is round shaped with a different type of opening, which gives this arrangement a very modern look. we put some stones and water to complete the look.
