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.

 

 

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

Tuesday, December 26th, 2006

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!
