Social media is everywhere and we’re embracing all the channels at Calyx Flowers. It’s become a wonderful way to communicate with our Flower Lovers, growers and partners around the world.

Just like we love to design new floral combinations, we love to hear feedback from YOU! It helps us understand how flowers are making a statement in your life or how you’re reaching out to others by sharing the gift of flowers. We’re always open to new ideas and we do love a design challenge to keep us on our toes.

It’s hard to believe but Calyx Flowers is now in its 27th year as luxury floral retailer. It doesn’t seem possible that more than two decades have passed since we mailed our very first catalog. To stay “fresh” we’ve always kept the true Flower Lover close to heart and it’s what makes us different than your average flower company.

We invite you to follow us on our day-to-day flower adventures and to share with us your own. Calyx Flowers can now be found on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter and let’s not forget “The Flower Lover’s Blog“. Reach out to us. We’re ready to listen.

Get ready for Thanksgiving! We asked the flower lovers here at Calyx to tell us their favorite picks and we’re going to be sharing our top 10 with you right up until the turkey hits the table.

Our first inspiring design is the Orchid Blaze Bouquet. “This is a really elegant, exotic bouquet in an earthy vase with a lovely, peaceful ambiance”, Sharon O. conveys to us from the Calyx Concierge team.  The orchids capture the essence of Thanksgiving with their seasonal palette of colors. Easy to style in our vase or yours, the bouquet adds a special ambiance to the holiday table.

Essential Summer Tropicals

Summer Sands Bouquet by Calyx Flowers

Summer Sands Bouquet by Calyx Flowers

Even if you don’t live in the Caribbean or another tropical climate, chances are still good that you love the bright colors and casual elegance of what we here at Calyx Flowers call “tropical style”. Sometimes it’s hard to find a way to bring a taste of the tropics into your home environment but we’ve solved that dilemma. Imagine bold pink and purple orchids alongside of breezy palms with amazing orange parakeet heliconias poking through the gathering. These tropical delights are all found in our new Summer Sands Bouquet.

Plus if you’re really into color we’ve added a vase with lots of visual charm and a sense of modern quirkiness. The glass vase is a work of art by Fringe Studios. Its round rectangular shape is tall and thin to support the diverse collection of tropical flowers. Its sleek sides are beautified by a wavy transferware print resembling streaks of multi-colored sand.

All together — tropical perfection!


Great bouquets right out of the box

What’s an easy bouquet to arrange right out of the box?

It’s a question we’re asked sometimes when a sender feels flowers are the perfect gift yet they do suspect the floral recipient might be a tad bit, how can we say this delicately, “design challenged”. First, know there are plenty of options for those flower lovers that feel they’re not up to the task of arranging flowers themselves. We’ve created an easy-to-arrange-collection of bouquets that take only a little effort next to filling your vase with water and adding the flower food.

One of our most recent creations is the bouquet, Watercolor Iris. Ten stems of these exotic flowers arrive boxed and ready to bloom. We’ve paired the iris stems with a unique pocket vase. The vase is a work of art by Fringe Studios, its round rectangular shape tall and thin which supports the flowers perfectly. The vase makes its presence known with its sleek sides beautified by a transferware floral print.

Iris have a very special bloom shape and size. They make arranging a snap since the stems can be spaced in a free-form manner. As they open the spaces are filled with brilliant, intensely colored blossoms.

The Easiest Rose Centerpiece Ever!

DIY Rose Bowl

Twelve roses is all it takes to create a stunning rose centerpiece. That’s it…we promise. Our do-it-yourself Rose Bowl gives you time to focus on all the other aspects of your party, wedding or special get-together. What’s wonderful about this unique vessel is you choose what to display in its center. We’ve shown you how elegant a bottle of wine looks on tabletop and how you can customize your centerpiece with unique seasonal offerings like these blue robin’s eggs. The skies the limit. Fill your rose bowl’s middle with a single floating flower. How about a candle? Candies make for a functional floral arrangement.
