Memorial Day

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

 

Memorial Day makes us think of hot dogs on the grill, sparklers in the air, and children running barefoot through front lawns.  It’s great to enjoy this holiday with friends and family but also important to remember why we celebrate it in the first place.   The fallen men and women who have protected this country are the reasons we enjoy Memorial Day and our freedom everyday.  If there is a someone you know who has died during service, send their family a bouquet in the soldiers memory.  At least, send your love and gratitude for our country’s heroes to whom we owe so much.

Just in time for Mother’s Day! Relax…from Seeking Balance Candles

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013

We’ve been following the trends in gardening at Calyx Flowers and are offering a small collection of products that are perfect gifts to give Mom this Mother’s Day, especially if she loves all things from the garden. Our new candle’s fragrance and color provides a soothing scent of garden favorites – lavender and geraniums. We discovered this wonderful candle at Root.

What’s Root? Root is an American candle company based in Ohio and founded way back in 1869. Their line of candles is quite impressive so we’re pleased to offer the Relax Geranium Lavender Candle from the seeking balance collection. The holistic candle is crafted of soy wax poured into a glass container and finished with a sustainable wooden wick.  When lit you experience the soothing lavender scent along with the beauty of the candle burning and the sound of the crackling wick. It’s made for a complete “sensory” experience.

Fragrance description: RELAX – Pure essential oils of lavender and the geranium bud combine with the tranquil color of lavender to provide an atmosphere of comfort, calm and relaxation.

It’s available right now at CalyxFlowers.com in limited quantities so be sure to order early for Mother’s Day.

Spring is Almost Here! Wait, is it?

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

 

The first day of Spring is Wednesday, March 20th, which is right around the corner!  However, if you live in the Northeast you’ll know that the conditions are anything but Springlike – there’s a huge snowstorm coming our way so most of us will spend the first day of Spring shoveling our driveways or snowed in.  It doesn’t seem like we’ll be celebrating Wednesday by getting out into our gardens, but that doesn’t mean we can’t bring flowers into our home.

Even if the weather is less than quintessential spring (we DO expect the snow to melt soon though Mother Nature, we’d like singing bluebirds and blooming forsythia at your earliest convenience.  Some of us have long awaited picnic plans to execute and have just about had it with heavy down jackets), we can still bring Spring inside!  Calyx has a Spring Collection that reminds us Easter is on the way, and Summer is not far behind it. All About Spring Bouquet is perfect to brighten your home and Powder Pink Peony Bouquet looks great in a window – be it snow or shine.

So, let’s encourage the weather to get warmer by bringing Spring inside our homes – hopefully the outdoors will want to catch up and bloom soon!

Emerald Orchids

Monday, March 11th, 2013

Don’t let your Irish pride end with the flag outside your home, show it with the beautiful Emerald Orchid Bouquet from Calyx Flowers.   The color is enhanced but there is nothing fake about the beauty of these gems.  Looking like a bouquet of shamrocks but holding tight to the majesty of orchids, the emerald bundle will no doubt surprise and delight guests and recipients - maybe it will even inspire a little luck of the Irish.

 

Emerald is not just festive this season, it’s also very chic.  Not only was Emerald named the Pantone 2013 Color of the Year but Calyx Flowers has found a way to infuse the luxurious hue to create the perfect St. Patrick’s Day bouquet.  Our Emerald Orchids is sure to make an elegant statement on March 17th as a gift or to decorate the home.  A holiday is a fun excuse to decorate and St. Patrick’s Day is the most fun holiday of all!

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

Monday, December 17th, 2012

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.
