Need a Floral Alternative? We Can Help!

original

We all have a friend with allergies, that sibling that’s rarely at home or that neighbor that just doesn’t have the propensity to keep plants alive. If an occasion arises in which you need to send a bouquet to one of these loved ones, what do you do? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Here’s a few non-floral bouquet ideas for such a gift receiver.

Teddy Bears
Our Build-A-Bear collection can say “I’m Sorry”, “Thank You”, or “Get Well” just as easily, if not more adorably, than any floral bouquet. Not only do they not whither, they supply cuddly comfort that a vase just can not provide. Take a look at the collections here.

Coffee or Tea
We haven’t met many people who don’t love coffee, tea or both. We have a large selection of beautiful displays, which feature Starbucks coffee and Tazo tea. Check them out here.

Candy, Chocolate, or Cookies
For a sweet treat, take a look at our collections from Sweets in Bloom, Godiva, Mrs. Fields or Lindt. You can find a plethora of edible bouquets to satisfy any kind of sweets lover here.

Fruit, Nuts, and Cheese
For the more savory toothed, we offer several lovely baskets featuring fresh fruit, nuts, cheese, meats and more here.

A Little Something Special
If none of these ideas really hit the spot, we also have options for including a book, such as Healing After Loss, sterling silver jewelry and spa items.

Let us know how we can help put together these or any custom baskets for your special delivery today. Call us at 817-624-8413.

Christmas Florals for Every Decor Style

0319598

If you walk into any decorating store this season, you’ll be sure to find aisles packed with holiday trimmings of all kinds. Probably the most difficult part about digging through this lustrous landscape of sparkle and sheen is figuring out what pieces will go best with your home’s style. We’ve profiled some floral inspiration to spark your imagination for five decor styles.

1. Traditional & Elegant – Poinsettias

Poinsettias are a very safe bet if you’re looking for traditional North American Christmas decor. They have many meanings dating back to the Aztecs, who felt the flower represented purity. The Christian adaption came from a tale of a poor young girl asking for a gift for baby Jesus, only to have a miraculous poinsettia bloom from her pile of weeds. Poinsettias’ shape is also said to represent the Star of Bethlehem. No matter the meaning you adore most, this gorgeous flower makes any home a comforting holiday nest filled with tradition and inciting memories.

2. Cottage – Christmas Flower (Helleborus Niger)

If you’re looking for something simple and bright to compliment your already sunny and down-to-earth feel of your country styled home, the Christmas Flower is your best bet. Their leathery petals look perfect against weathered woods, light fabrics, and stamped metals.

3. Tuscan/Old World – Christmas Cactus (aka. Orchid Cactus)
For an old world home, the Christmas Cactus gives your holiday look a “hanging gardens” appeal. The simple greenery is adorned with small red or white blossoms, easily complementing grape-donned china and mosaic settings.

4. Contemporary & Chic – Pohutukawa Tree Flowers

Now this is really fun and different! The blossoms of New Zealand’s Pohutukawa Tree are reminiscent of a fiber-optic tree with a more natural feel. The hot-pink to fuchsia pops perfectly in a room of fab decor.

5. Modern & Minimal – Christmas Rose (Serissa)

This cute little bonsai is a perennial favorite in Southeast Asia. If you’re looking for something simple and understated to say “Happy Holidays” without overwhelming your clean-lined feel, the Serissa is a perfect choice. Just deck it out with some small ornaments or even just dust it with silver spray paint, and add it to your dining or side table.

3 Great Games for Giving Thanks this Thursday

Most families have a Thanksgiving tradition of going around the table having everyone say what makes them thankful. As wonderful an activity as this is, why not spice it up a bit? These creative games will get each participant interested and involved in every moment of this annual round of gratefulness, and will surely fill the room with laughter and joy.

ABC Thanks
This one is pretty easy. The family member to start must name something for which they are thankful that starts with the letter “A”. The next person must do the same with “B”. If there is a well-known Thanksgiving dinner incentive in your family, like the drumstick on the turkey or getting the comfy chair for game-watching, it can be the prize for naming an item for a stumped cousin.

Thankful Fours
Using the craft paper of your choice, cut out several shapes of the number 4, then write “I’m Thankful” on each one. Put one at each place setting on the table with a pen, then instruct everyone to write their ‘thankful fors” on the back. Ask everyone to read them aloud during the go-around. You can then tell them to take their Thankful 4 home to use for a tree ornament. As time goes on, each family member will be reminded of their many blessings each time they decorate their tree.

Cornucopia Collector
Give each guest a paper leaf and ask them to write what they are thankful for on one side and their name on the other, then place it into the cornucopia. During dinner have a designated person read each leaf aloud and ask everyone to try and guess who wrote what’s on each leaf.

We love hearing about new and creative ideas for adding fun to family gatherings. Tell us about your favorite family game for the holidays on our Facebook page post. If your submission is our favorite, we’ll send you a beautiful holiday centerpiece just in time for next month’s celebrations. View our selection here.
