Love getting ready for Valentine’s Day

Friday, February 1st, 2013

When everyone at Calyx Flowers was in planning mode for Valentine’s Day 2013, we thought this would be the year where we offer roses in all colors and sizes.  After all not every girl, woman or even guy is wanting your typical bouquet of red roses. Now don’t get us wrong. We absolutely adore red roses and have lots of options highlighting the different varieties of red that scream “I love you!” However we wanted a collection of bouquets so encompassing that our flower lovers would take notice.

“When you’re designing with roses, it doesn’t take much to create an incredibly beautiful bouquet. What does take a lot is how to give the roses a platform to be dramatic and stand out”, says Calyx designer, Brittany Streufert. In addition to creating the bouquets that grace CalyxFlowers.com and  our catalog, the flower expert searches high and low for luxurious vessels and amazing vases that work with the different floral components she selects.

“Valentine’s Day is a day when you want to make your love stand out. You want the recipient to say, ‘This is the most unbelievable bouquet I have ever received.’ With our Valentine’s Day 2013 collection of roses I think we have the right product selection to touch the hearts of many.”

We would love to hear from you and your thoughts on our Valentine’s Day bouquets.

Valentine’s Flowers

Hanukkah and Christmas are now behind us. Thanks for reading and commenting on my recent posts about holiday flowers, crafts and decorating. I hope everyone enjoyed the very best and most relaxing holiday season.

At Calyx Flowers we’ve assembled a nice collection of New Year’s flowers, plants, preserved floral arrangements and table centerpieces that make festive New Year’s party decorations.

The next really big floral occasion is Valentine’s Day. Over 180 million stems of roses will be cut and shipped for Valentine’s Day delivery. Valentine’s Day ranks as the number one holiday in the floral industry, capturing 35% of all holiday transactions. Valentine’s Day is also the number one holiday for your local florist, according to the Society of American Florists. The US market for flowers and plants was $19.5 billion in 2004, according to the US Department of Commerce.

As Valentine’s Day gift ideas, Calyx Flowers will offer designer bouquets with an emphasis on red rose bouquets, including the lavish 100 Roses Bouquet — over eight dozen red roses delivered in a magnificent Wine Chiller and accompanied by gourmet chocolate truffles!

There’s also the 50 Roses Bouquet. Or if you really want to make a powerful and lasting impression on your sweetheart, send Roses for a year — a bouquet of roses every month for a full twelve months!
