Black Friday & Today’s Shopper

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

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!

Decorating with our new and cheerfully gorgeous Pumpkin Sunflowers

Flowers in the home always make a difference, especially during the holidays when it feels like there’s a non-stop flow of family and friends in and out the door. We’ve designed a new sunflower look that will make bold and cheerful statement when on display. Sunflowers always make the perfect complement to Thanksgiving and fall decor and our Pumpkin Sunflowers are no exception. The bouquet includes fourteen sunflowers along with a gathering of feathery yellow solidago.

Cut the stems short and style them in your favorite container or if you’re looking for the right touch of Thanksgiving for the tabletop we love them arranged in our cute pumpkin vessels. Pumpkin Sunflowers are now available at CalyxFlowers.com and can be purchased as an individual bouquet or with a set of two pumpkin vases.

It’s National Boss Day!

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.
