Beat the Winter Blues

Monday, January 28th, 2013

 

Winter can be a difficult time of year.  Everything is covered in ice, most days are grey, nothing is blooming except cabin fever, and you forget what feeling hot is like.  You spend most of your time indoors catching up on tv and books itching for the warmth of the sun.  It’s easy to slip into a winter funk.  We’ve all been there.

But, being inside all the time does not mean you have to surrender to days feeling down.  Spruce up the place you spend your time in – your home!  Take pride in your winter hibernation by making your home beautiful inside and out.  A bouquet or a centerpiece can make a big difference in a room and in a day!  Maybe send one to a friend who you know has been feeling beat down by winter.  Once your environment is cheerier, you’ll be able to enjoy being stuck inside!  Curl up with a book and a cup or tea or plan a fun craft project for the kids to do after school.  Enjoy the beauty of your home and all the warmth it provides.

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 Lucky St. Patrick’s Day Discovery

Monday, March 12th, 2012

ShamrockCould it be the luck of the Irish? St. Patrick’s Day will be celebrated this Saturday, March 17th and wouldn’t you know that we’ve discovered a way to save on our new Lucky Day Green Dendrobiums , a bouquet of fresh-cut orchids. Now through March 14th, enjoy great savings of up to $15 off your order. The more you send, the more you save.

We created the Lucky Day Green Dendrobiums as an homage to St. Patrick’s Day, a national holiday in Ireland that honors the patron saint of the country, St. Patrick. The bouquet of multi-blossomed orchids plays off the traditional emblam of this Irish holiday – the green shamrock. St. Patrick was known for using the 3-leafed shamrock to explain the concept of the Christian Holy Trinity. The orchid blossoms have been color enhanced to the same bright shade of green as a shamrock. O’ so clever, don’t you think!

Luxury Rewards August Grower’s Special

Monday, August 15th, 2011

Luxury Rewards Mistine DendrobiumsIt doesn’t happen very often, so here’s a chance for you to send a beautiful bouquet at a significant discount. Today through August 19, 2011, Calyx Flowers is offering the exotic Mistine Dendrobiums at a $25 savings. Send the surprise of fresh cut orchids to your someone special right now and they will receive a ten stem bouquet along with our petite amethyst hobnail vase (a Calyx exclusive).

Did you know that Orchids have long been highly sought after, probably for the unusual beauty of their design? Orchid hunters in the nineteenth century collected them by the ton, and chopped down as many as four thousand trees at one time for the orchids growing on them. Dendrobium is as an unusual name as it is word. It comes from the Greek “dendron” (tree) and “bios” (life) referring to the orchids’ epiphytic habit of attaching to tree branches. The dendrobium family is generally believed to contain the largest number of species, somewhere around 30,000.

To take advantage of the August Luxury Rewards offer, click here and use code CFGS811 at checkout to receive your $25 discount.

Resurrect Romance Week

Friday, August 12th, 2011

“The life and love we create is the life and love we live.” – Leo Buscaglia (aka Dr. Love)

What? You’ve never heard of National Resurrect Romance Week? Let’s take a look at this interesting holiday and its meaningful intentions. First of all it is celebrated the second full week in August which is six months after Valentine’s Day has passed. This year August 14 – 20 is the official Resurrect Romance Week. Michael Webb, called by the media “The Martha Stewart of Romance”, established the holiday in 1995 because he felt the need to create a romantic holiday that for once did not focus on money and “things.” Webb wanted people to equate romance with time and attention which was something he exalted on his website, TheRomantic.com and as author of The Romantic’s Guide and 12 other books on love, dating, romance and relationships.

People in countries around the world have embraced the holiday and have made it a practice to spread the love this week. It’s a feel-good time where you can dedicate yourself to surprising that someone special in your life with romantic gestures big and small. Of course we at Calyx Flowers couldn’t pass up the chance to say that we feel flowers are a quintessential part of the romance department!

Are you a fan of romance? If so, how will you proclaim your love next week?

Resurrect Romance Week is August 14th - 20th.
