FALL'S PLEASING PALETTE

By Betsy Mejia   |  October 2, 2018

We say "Good-bye." to the green foliage and bright blooms of summer and say "Hello!" to the equally beautiful colors of Fall. Fall brings rustic red, golden orange and honey yellow. Even brown brings richness to the palette. You might think fall arrangements are predictable, offering none of the unexpected, but there are surprises that will prompt you to say "That is so neat!".

US VS. THEM

By Betsy Mejia   |  September 1, 2018

Who are "Them"? I’m referring to the discount and grocery stores who carry wrapped bouquets at the front of the store for your convenience. Convenience? Park within steps of our front door and it is just 25 feet to our large walk-in floral cooler. (We could only make it more convenient if we delivered to your car.) This is where we keep our freshly cut, recently received assortment of flowers. Guaranteed fresh, our flowers are premium. Source does matter.

Flowers freshen up the interior décor of your home, bring cheer, add life and the scent is delightful. Flowers make a room appear more inviting and allow you to express your own style. You can coordinate the colors of the flowers with your décor in a mix or go monochromatic. A contrasting color would be bold and capture attention. Blooms of similar hue to your wall or furniture are lovely accents.

LOVE FOR YOUR HOUSEPLANT

By Betsy Mejia   |  June 23, 2018

It was love at first sight! You couldn’t resist. He was such a lovely shade of green; so glossy. You were delighted to see he was reasonably priced for his large size. His tag read “Ficus”. Such a fun word, you repeated it to yourself aloud. You purchased a pot in a hammered stainless steel to match your décor. You took him home, securing him in the passenger seat and you named him “Evan”.It’s a month later, Evan has lost his zeal for life. Leaves are falling off and he isn’t responding to your singing. You’ve watered him religiously every day; what more can you do?DON’T DESPAIR!
