It’s February 14th Flower Lovers! Have a wonderful day filled with love and of course, flowers.
We’re starting 2014 off with a trip to the AmericasMart in Atlanta, Georgia. Our objective is to find as many new and exciting looks for the upcoming seasons as possible. We’re on the hunt for the perfect Mother’s Day vase, the got-to-have-it cachepot for an orchid garden and much, much, more. Now if the weather would warm up just a tad we’ll really be on the move from showroom to showroom.
With much of the US seeing some of the coldest weather in years, Calyx Flowers will not be shipping any orders on Tuesday, January 7. This is a preventative measure to ensure that we only ship the highest quality flowers and plants from our growers. We try not to be in the business of delivering frozen flowers. Stay warm Flower Lovers!
Our Flowers in a Hatbox gift collection continues to be a popular favorite with our customers. We’re in love with the new Roses & Berries Hatbox Bouquet which arrives looking “holiday happy” in its silk emerald green brocade hatbox. All your special recipient needs to do is add water to the vase and give the bouquet’s stem a quick trim and voila! It’s a beautiful floral display. Check out all our Flowers in a Hatbox offerings today!
Here’s an example of how easy it is to unpack these fabulous flowers.
We’re delighted to announce that our gorgeous Year of Orchids gift program was selected to be in the latest issue of People Magazine. The 3 month gift program was selected as a one of the “gifts for the home” in People’s Holiday Gift Guide 2013. The stunning orchids were part of the collection curated by HGTV’s Hilary Farr who said, “Who wouldn’t want three months of beautiful orchids to help get through the winter?” We couldn’t agree more.

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.

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.
