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.

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.

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!
