Flowers in High Fashion

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

Here at Calyx Flowers, we’re not the only ones who are constantly inspired by flora and fauna – we often see beautiful blooms gracing the pages of high fashion magazines, like Harper’s Bazaar.  The dresses shown below are features from HB, created by talented Italian designer, Giambattista Valli, and we couldn’t be more pleased to see flowers taking center stage in fall couture collections.  They’re celebrated here in both pattern and form of these tailored yet organically shaped pieces.

If you’re a flower fanatic, like you know we are, why not wear your passion on your sleeve – literally.  Flower prints and styles are a fun and refreshing way to show your flower power and spruce up your wardrobe.  So remember, flowers don’t just re-energize your home, they are a chic way to feel beautiful when you leave as well.  Pick up a fashion magazine today and see if your favorite flower made it’s way to the glossy pages where high couture reigns.  Calyx loves flowers – and couture!

Happy Halloween Bouquet

New! Trick-or-Treat Wreath

Halloween isn’t just a time for candy, fright, and costumes.  It’s also a time for unique and exciting arrangements to adorn the ins and outs of your home.  Our new orange and purple Trick-or-Treat Wreath is a preserved delight filled with maple leaves, statice, and black phalaris that will welcome trick-or-treaters and turn your neighbors witch-green with envy.  Or a bouquet of vibrant orange Circus roses and Asiatic lilies like our Happy Halloween Bouquet will serve as a stylish reminder of the natural beauty the season holds.  Whether it’s tricks or it’s treats, show your guests your home is the most fantastically florally festive on the block.

What makes Fall special to you?

Monday, October 15th, 2012

Whether it’s the crunch of newly fallen leaves beneath your feet or the smell of apple cider in the air, autumn’s unique qualities tend to elicit all sorts of sentiments from us.  It’s the seasons changing, another year passed, and more things to be thankful for.  Fall certainly is beautiful in more way than one, but the aesthetic glow around September and October is something really extraordinary.  At Calyx, it’s important for us to create bouquets that mimic and emphasize the natural beauty that’s happening all around us.

So, we’d like to ask our customers, what makes fall special to you?  Is it the smell in the air or the color in the trees?  Is it the excitement of the year to come or pride in what last year accomplished?  Let us know so we can encompass all that makes Fall so amazing into our bouquets and arrangements.  Giving a floral reminder of why you love Fall to someone you love is a very special gift, indeed.
