What makes Fall special to you?

Monday, October 15th, 2012

Whether it’s the crunch of newly fallen leaves beneath your feet or the smell of apple cider in the air, autumn’s unique qualities tend to elicit all sorts of sentiments from us.  It’s the seasons changing, another year passed, and more things to be thankful for.  Fall certainly is beautiful in more way than one, but the aesthetic glow around September and October is something really extraordinary.  At Calyx, it’s important for us to create bouquets that mimic and emphasize the natural beauty that’s happening all around us.

So, we’d like to ask our customers, what makes fall special to you?  Is it the smell in the air or the color in the trees?  Is it the excitement of the year to come or pride in what last year accomplished?  Let us know so we can encompass all that makes Fall so amazing into our bouquets and arrangements.  Giving a floral reminder of why you love Fall to someone you love is a very special gift, indeed.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

If you have ever had a friend or even friends diagnosed with breast cancer like I have in the recent years, you know how devastating and tough this disease really is. So to honor the many individuals affected by breast cancer Calyx Flowers in 2007 started our “Bouquets for Breast Cancer” program. Each year we donate 10% of the revenue raised by the sale of these flowers to fund breast cancer research. It’s all about making a difference.

Our featured bouquet for 2010 is the Pink Ribbon Roses Bouquet. It’s a bouquet of vibrant beauty that will have your recipient saying, “Oooo la la roses!” when it arrives in splendid fashion. I just love the way the pink roses combine with the intriguing light green roses which are a variety called “Super Green.”

If you’ve thought about sending flowers, Pink Ribbon Roses Bouquet is a great choice to give this October. I’ve sent it to my survivor friends and here’s a quick shout out to my dear friend Tracy – May you continue to heal and continue to fight. You have more strength and courage than I could ever imagine having. You are in my thoughts and prayers daily. Love you!
