Ready to ship: The Bunny Bouquet for Easter & springtime occasions

Hop to it! Ordering for Easter is always easiest when you do it early. And speaking of early, Easter is Sunday, March 27th this year which is only one week after the first day of Spring. It makes me giddy to think about all the blooming that’s ahead of us!

Easter is a beautiful, fun holiday. It’s always provided lots of inspiration to work with as well as a plethora of colors and textures from which to choose. One bouquet above all others has always stood out during this time year and it’s a classic mixed bouquet, The Bunny Bouquet.  Not surprisingly, according to a National Retail Federation survey, mixed flower bouquets take the top spot in the fresh cut flowers category with consumers at Easter.

The Bunny Bouquet debuted back in 2006 when I had happened upon a pitcher with a simple rabbit depiction on it. With the addition of pastel flowers it instantly became a favorite with our customers. Its look has been updated from time to time so that it stays just as “fresh” as the flowers in the bouquet’s recipe.

Today’s design features a beautiful keepsake, hand painted pitcher filled with lots of springtime blooms. The bunny pitcher is a fine statement piece and can be enjoyed for years to come. Every time I bring my pitcher out to start the Easter celebrations I smile. It always adds brightness to my family’s day.

Please enjoy this look back to one of the very first Calyx “Bunny” designs.

Spring is Almost Here! Wait, is it?

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013


The first day of Spring is Wednesday, March 20th, which is right around the corner!  However, if you live in the Northeast you’ll know that the conditions are anything but Springlike – there’s a huge snowstorm coming our way so most of us will spend the first day of Spring shoveling our driveways or snowed in.  It doesn’t seem like we’ll be celebrating Wednesday by getting out into our gardens, but that doesn’t mean we can’t bring flowers into our home.

Even if the weather is less than quintessential spring (we DO expect the snow to melt soon though Mother Nature, we’d like singing bluebirds and blooming forsythia at your earliest convenience.  Some of us have long awaited picnic plans to execute and have just about had it with heavy down jackets), we can still bring Spring inside!  Calyx has a Spring Collection that reminds us Easter is on the way, and Summer is not far behind it. All About Spring Bouquet is perfect to brighten your home and Powder Pink Peony Bouquet looks great in a window – be it snow or shine.

So, let’s encourage the weather to get warmer by bringing Spring inside our homes – hopefully the outdoors will want to catch up and bloom soon!
