Earthen Treasures Cross

Earthen Treasures Cross

Whenever someone loses a loved one, you can usually count on their home being besieged with food from well meaning friends and neighbors. Being that we are a flower company, we also know that bouquets and special arrangements are always appreciated. For some a keepsake gift means most.  With that in mind we created a beautiful, long lasting reminder — the Earthen Treasures Cross.

Inspired by some of the most naturally beautiful, yet wonderfully uncomplicated, treasures offered up by earth’s diverse landscapes, the cross can be hung in the home or at a service. It’s a unique offering that’s ideal for for sending your sincerest sympathies.

Let the Shopping Begin for New Looks!

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

We’re starting 2014 off with a trip to the AmericasMart in Atlanta, Georgia. Our objective is to find as many new and exciting looks for the upcoming seasons as possible. We’re on the hunt for the perfect Mother’s Day vase, the got-to-have-it cachepot for an orchid garden and much, much, more. Now if the weather would warm up just a tad we’ll really be on the move from showroom to showroom.

This is a preventative measure to ensure that we only ship the highest quality flowers and plants from our growers. We try not to be in the business of delivering frozen flowers. Stay warm Flower Lovers!

Black Friday & Today’s Shopper

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

Since Calyx Flowers is a catalog mail-order company we’ve never had the experience of Black Friday shoppers lined up at our door ready to pounce the day after Thanksgiving.  It seems that many of today’s shoppers are deciding to sleep in vs. shop. According to eMarketer.com, “A larger number of them (shoppers) plan on doing most of their shopping on an online site than at a brick-and-mortar store that day. And younger shoppers are headed online in greater numbers than their older counterparts.”

Do you agree? Are your plans to stay indoors and shop on Black Friday? If so, tell us why. We would love to hear your thoughts. And remember, there’s always an open invitation to visit CalyxFlowers.com.

Thistle Flowers

The national emblem of Scotland and a symbol of nobility, thistle is indeed unique and adds quite a lot of personality and texture to bouquets. It’s interesting purple-blue color allows it to make a statement regardless of its surroundings. We’ve combined this unique, prickly plant’s branches in our new Roses & Thistle Bouquet.  It’s a brand new way to say “I love you” anytime of the year.

Flower Inspired Gifts: Egyptian Jasmine

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

Love flowers but the person you would love to send a big, gorgeous bouquet to doesn’t seem to be enthralled by fresh flowers? It’s hard for us to imagine such a scenario, but we’ve been assured it happens. Thus we’ve ventured out to find unique gifts that are flower inspired! Your recipient gets a naturally beautiful present and you’re still adding the personal touch of flowers to the special occasion.

This fall season we introduced the Egyptian Jasmine Candle & Soap Gift Set from k. hall designs at CalyxFlowers.com. We love everything that comes from Kelly Hall-Barr and John Barr. This husband and wife team produces unbelievably great bath, body and home care products from their factory in Brentwood, Missouri. We fell in love with their aromatic candles and soaps.

Love fragrance? Egyptian Jasmine has a very sensual scent  The soap and candle are made with rare, absolute jasmine oil which gives it long-lasting power. For a final touch of luxury, the gift set arrives in a fabulous keepsake satin hatbox. It makes for an interesting, long-lasting, floral-inspired delivery!

It’s National Boss Day!

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

Remember it’s National Boss Day where we take the opportunity to show your boss how much you appreciate them. So where did this holiday originate? It dates back to 1958 when a woman named Patricia Haroski who was a secretary in Deerfield, Illinois organized a special day in honor of her white-collar father, who helped all of his children with good advice throughout their careers.

A mere four years later, National Boss Day was backed by Illinois Governor Otto Kerner. He officially proclaimed the day in 1962. National Boss Day quickly gained favor across the country and is now even observed in England, Australia and South Africa.

Take the time to acknowledge your boss today. I can’t believe it but I just received a text from a former employee wishing me a “Happy Boss’s Day”. It meant alot.
