Thanksgiving Inspiration #1

November 18th, 2014

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.

Orange Glory Bouquet

A striking monochromatic bouquet in orange. Asiatic lilies stun in full bloom. Love the bird toile pitcher which makes for two-gifts-in-one. The ceramic pitcher can be used to later serve up your favorite beverage. The Orange Glory Bouquet is ideal for Halloween, Thanksgiving or a special birthday celebration.

Essential Summer Tropicals

July 23rd, 2014
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.
