Ready to ship: The Bunny Bouquet for Easter & springtime occasions

Hop to it! Ordering for Easter is always easiest when you do it early. And speaking of early, Easter is Sunday, March 27th this year which is only one week after the first day of Spring. It makes me giddy to think about all the blooming that’s ahead of us!

Easter is a beautiful, fun holiday. It’s always provided lots of inspiration to work with as well as a plethora of colors and textures from which to choose. One bouquet above all others has always stood out during this time year and it’s a classic mixed bouquet, The Bunny Bouquet.  Not surprisingly, according to a National Retail Federation survey, mixed flower bouquets take the top spot in the fresh cut flowers category with consumers at Easter.

The Bunny Bouquet debuted back in 2006 when I had happened upon a pitcher with a simple rabbit depiction on it. With the addition of pastel flowers it instantly became a favorite with our customers. Its look has been updated from time to time so that it stays just as “fresh” as the flowers in the bouquet’s recipe.

Today’s design features a beautiful keepsake, hand painted pitcher filled with lots of springtime blooms. The bunny pitcher is a fine statement piece and can be enjoyed for years to come. Every time I bring my pitcher out to start the Easter celebrations I smile. It always adds brightness to my family’s day.

Please enjoy this look back to one of the very first Calyx “Bunny” designs.

Final Days for the Peony

Powder Pink Peony Bouquet

Powder Pink Peony Bouquet

The time of year has come once again. The time where we bid our beautiful friend the peony goodbye. As our shipping season ends, we look back at the flowers’ lovely blooms. We remember the light and airy fragrance that is so unique to peonies. We think about how the fresh cut flowers arrived in tight bud yet miraculously unfurled to become bigger and bigger day after day.

To the peony, we offer a fond farewell. We will see you again soon when you’re ready.

*Calyx Flowers’ last ship day of peony bouquets is this Friday, May 29th.
