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!

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.

Could 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!
To take advantage of our St. Patty’s Day special, visit CalyxFlowers.com today and use code CFSPRING3 at checkout. It’s your chance to make someone feel lucky and loved this week when they receive their beautiful bouquet. Happy St. Patrick’s Day from us to you!

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.

“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?
The final touch to sending the perfect summer bouquet or blooming plant is to include the Soleil candle tin by Voluspa. It is a beautiful blend of pineapple, organic tangerine, coconut and vanilla. We declare that it makes a perfect pair with everything at Calyx Flowers.

What makes iris so special? Well for starters, the lovely iris’ symbolic meaning is ascribed as faith and wisdom, inspiration. The flower is also referred to as the Fleur-de-Lis because of its very different look as compared to other flowers. The predominant season for iris is Spring but we offer them year round at CalyxFlowers.com.
One of my favorite books, Flowers A-Z (Abrams) by talented floral designer and author Cecelia Heffernan talks about the great beauty of the iris. She writes, “Iris are exotic flowers with intensely colored blossoms of unusual shape. The flower is made up of three inner petals arching up and three outer petals falling down with tall sword-like green foliage surrounding its stem. Iris blossoms are beautiful arranged in their natural state.”
So attractive when displayed in a bright vessel and perfect for any kind of special occasion take full advantage of our Luxury Rewards offer today!
