Getting Ready for the Holiday Photo Shoot!

Friday, July 26th, 2013

 

The time has come upon us!  Here at Calyx, we’re getting ready to shoot our Holiday catalog for you – in July!  While awfully confusing for those involved, the process is great fun and we can’t wait to share our new products with you.

We’re very busy bees buzzing around gathering vases, ordering flowers, and prepping the photo studio as a winter wonderland. Inside, the smell of pine and sugar cookies are in the air – outside the smell of BBQ and fresh cut grass.  We have some great products up our sleeves and we know, come holiday season,   you’ll be dashing through the snow to get your new catalog!

Stay tuned for pictures, Flower Lovers!

Beautiful Flowers!

Hi Flower Lovers! We wrapped up our Fall 2013 photo shoot and after the last shot was taken, we had some fun putting together beautiful arrangements to share with you, our blog followers.  Here at Calyx, we love flowers and any excuse to play with them is a real treat.

The bouquet shown above is simple yet ever so appealing. This beautiful bouquet is perfect for a guestroom or a bathroom.  The container is a French-style bath jar, easily found in a powder room or a home goods type retailer.  It’s always fun to find unconventional vases around the house that will make for for an eye-catching arrangement.

The bouquet shown below is a great example of how to display flowers in a charming and rustic way.  Leaving flowers out around the home in baskets is a wonderful way to embrace the summer and show off your inner country goddess.  We chose yellow roses and Telstar Iris but the sky is the limit for this fun display!  Using fresh wild flowers is another great option, this could also make a great housewarming gift for a summer move in!

 

The final bouquet shown below is a personal favorite.  The medley of bright colors paired with a simple brown wooden box is chic, fun, and charming.  This bouquet looks like it belongs on a dinner table outside in Nantucket, late Summer or early Fall.  When arranging flowers, the most important thing to remember is to have fun! There is no bad arrangement, pick your favorite flowers and find a creative and free form way to bring them together. Putting flowers together is a way for you to be the artist and display your creations to all those you love.  Take tips from us, get out in the garden, and put something beautiful and creative together for your dinner table!

Styling a Fabulous Holiday Bouquet

Styling a Fabulous Holiday Bouquet

Most people do not begin to think about Christmas until Halloween has passed us by but that’s not the case here at Calyx Flowers. We’re always thinking about gifts and we’re always thinking about flowers and now we’re thinking about Christmas and the holiday gift season too.

This past week we had our holiday photoshoot at the corporate office in Shelburne, VT. Lots of reds and whites filled the studio as did the fragrant scent of cedar. As each new bouquet was created the song lyrics – “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas” kept popping in to my head. I hope you’ll be as excited as I am about the magnificent new bouquets and evergreens in a variety of vivid colors and flowers.

Now I just need to get my holiday plan in place for all the home and office decorating! Don’t we all?
