Special Delivery

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

As I always like to say, “Nothing can match the joy of receiving fresh flowers.” That’s why I love to surprise my friends and family members with a colorful creation from the Calyx Flowers’ birthday collection. It’s easy to find just what you’re looking for as we have so many different variety of flowers in wonderful color combinations.

 Today’s featured bouquet is the Happy Birthday Orchid Bouquet. Here we’ve used three different varieties of orchids that are flown in from the growers in Thailand.  It’s very striking and the cute “Happy Birthday” sentiment stick included with our as shown bouquet (left) makes a thoughtful statement.

Send your best birthday wishes today! And one more tip for today, orchids are extremely easy to arrange so do not fret as we’re sure your special recipient will find joy in arranging them as well. Have a great day!

Orchid Blaze Bouquet
Our October Cover Bouquet

For those of us who like to make a strong statement when sending flowers in a stylish fashion, fresh-cut orchids are the go-to blooms. This fall Calyx Flowers is showcasing a modern selection of orchids in a wide array of unusual varieties and autumn colors.

Orchid Blaze Bouquet  graces our October catalog cover. This beautiful bouquet is a combination of three different mokara varieties alongside striking tigertail arandas. Tropical ti leaves and curly willow provide a final touch. What’s great about our bouquets is that they are available to purchase many different ways. Customers can select the “shown” look which is the bouquet with the decorative vase that we show in our catalog or on the web site. Or you may want to just send the bouquet with a glass vase and we have that too. Have too many vases at home? Order just the bouquet. We try and accommodate everyone’s desires.

Fun Orchid Fact from one of my favorite books, “Easy Orchids” – Did you know that orchids have been known to drape themselves exotically in trees and rocks? They draw their nutrients from water that falls upon their roots and from decomposing organic matter that often builds up around the roots.
