Have a Festive New Year’s!

Friday, December 28th, 2012

Tis the season to take down the wreaths and garlands, to take down the ornaments, to wear our new sweaters as we clean the house.  Removing decorations can feel a bit grim so it’s important to not leave your home devoid of festivity.  New Year’s can be a fun holiday to decorate for so try sprucing up your home with gold, white, and blue.  After New Year’s comes Valentine’s Day where our homes will be adorned with reds and pinks.
To beat the post Christmas blues, make sure there’s not a gaping hole where wreaths used to be.  Just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean your door has to be naked and your tables flowerless.  Embrace New Year’s as an excuse to decorate and don’t let your home be without some pizzazz!

Spreading Kindness and Joy

Snow Angel Bouquet

 

In light of recent events, it’s not unusual to think of the world as a scary place.  At Calyx Flowers, our hearts and prayers are with the people of Newtown as they attempt to cope with a devastating situation.

In times like this, it’s important to take time to notice the great amount of light that lives in the world as well.  People have come together to help the people of Newtown in whatever way they can.  Earlier this year, New Yorkers opened their homes to people who were suffering from the affects of Hurricane Sandy.  Overall, human nature is good and people want to share that.  This holiday season, let your good nature shine through during a difficult time.  Hug your children, your parents, your neighbors and let them know you care.  Send a bouquet to a family in need of comfort or make cookies for your own family.  There are so many ways to spread joy and let the true spirit of the season ring out.  In the way you can, contribute to human kindness during a time when the world needs as much as it can get.

A Special Holiday Offer on our Popular Gift Programs!

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

Our Year of gift programs are very popular gifts to give during the Holiday season. Think about it – it’s a gift that arrives every month so your special recipient is reminded of your thoughtfulness all year long. This year we decided to give something back to the sender when a 3, 6 or 12-month gift program is purchased.

You can now receive a Calyx coupon valued at $25 for every month of the gift program you choose to send. The coupon is good towards any future purchase at CalyxFlowers.com in the month that it is sent. It’s a fabulous way to save when you need to send flowers for a birthday in January, a gift to say “I love you” in February or to send a get well bouquet in March.

3 Months = $75 in Savings ◊ 6 Months = $150 in Savings ◊ 12 Months = $300 in Savings

Plus we’ve redesigned the Year of Flowers, Year of Roses, Best of Calyx and Year of Designer Gift Programs for 2013. The new monthly selections are brillant. And we’ve introduced the Year of Preserved Designs which delivers a different, luxuriant wreath, centerpiece, basket or heart swing the first week of each month. Check out the offer today!

Saying “Merry Christmas”

Monday, December 10th, 2012

The Christmas season is a favorite here at Calyx Flowers. There’s something in the air that makes the world seem just a little brighter, slightly kinder, and brimming with cheer. Generosity is celebrated and people wear their hearts on their sleeves, it is truly a magical time. Being Flower Lovers, it’s not just the warm fuzzy feeling we get when we think about gifts under the tree and a perfectly viable excuse to eat as many cookies as we’d like that makes Christmas special to us, it’s the bountiful amount of seasonal flowers and plants that will adorn our homes.

Della Robbia Centerpiece

Nothing says ‘Merry Christmas’ like poinsettias, centerpieces and wreaths of made of evergreen, holly, mistletoe, and luscious red roses peppered with green berries and leaves. We love the excuse to fill our homes with the colors and smells that come around just once a year. The holidays are the perfect time to decorate your home with whatever reminds you of the most wonderful time of the year. Perhaps it’s a nativity set, childhood ornaments, stockings hanging in front of a roaring fire, or just the sound of family gathered under the same roof. Whatever it is, bring along a little extra cheer with a plant or bouquet from Calyx.
