How to send a Guy Flowers

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

Roses take on a masculine look for the men in our zinc metal vase.

Love getting flowers from your guy at Valentine’s Day? Are you thinking how great it would be for him to have that same warm feeling of love and appreciation? But then are you doubting whether or not a guy really wants to get flowers? Is it “not manly” to be a guy and a recipient of a bouquet of roses? STOP right there…you don’t need permission!

The gift of roses or any other kind of flower or plant for that matter is a personal choice you’ve made especially for him and one that truly came from a good place in your heart. Sure there will always be some naysayer that says it’s not cool to get flowers from a “chick” but at the same time I know alot of women who have also made snide comments when someone around them receives a flower delivery. Could it be the green-eyed envy monster coming out?

When designing our Valentine’s Day collection this year, we thought about the idea of having one specific bouquet for HIM. The idea came full circle when we happened upon a very modern and masculine-looking vase.  Thus, Uniquely Him Roses was born. The vase itself is comprised of a cylinder glass insert that sits inside a wrapping of zinc metal. It’s industrial and interesting all at the same time. The classic bouquet of red roses looks right at home inside the vase. It’s appropriate for the boyfriend, the husband, the dad or even the grandfather. And if you send it to his workplace, it’s guaranteed to be a water cooler topic of conversation.

We hope this helps if you were thinking of ordering your guy Valentine flowers. We’re planning on making this bouquet available for all special occasions, year round. Dare to be different and do it. And please, tell us how it went as we would love to hear about it at Calyx Flowers.

 

 

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!

Ever wonder why we give plants as “Get Well” gifts? Sure they are beautiful but what if your recipient isn’t a flower lover? Here’s some interesting facts that may just change their mind and yours the next time you know someone isn’t feeling well.

1. Plants are natural air purifiers. They take in carbon dioxide, release oxygen and clean the air of many harmful pollutants.

2. Studies compiled by the Flowers & Plants Association show that, “when living plants are present indoors, anxiety levels are lowered and people recover from mental tiredness faster.”

3. These studies also revealed that “indoor plants can reduce fatigue, coughs, sore throats, and other cold related illnesses by more than 30%.”

4. Plants act as natural insulators, helping to lessen noise, particularly in large, open rooms.

5. My favorite – there’s no denying that plants lend their color and charm to any room effortlessly, creating a warm and welcoming environment.

Most people know the color of a rose can symbolize a particular emotion or sentiment, for instance:
