the little things...

             “It is definitely that time of year” keeps slipping out of my mouth lately. Yes. We have officially reached “that time of year” when the pace in the floral industry picks up to a hundred miles an hour (or so it seems). Weddings! Graduations! Parties! Mother’s Day! Oh yes and there are all those every day events, too! It can be dizzying trying to keep up with everything. However, this is the time we especially need to keep the little things in mind and not let them slip through the cracks!

             I really appreciate this article by Sean Low--it’s such a great reminder! The creative industry is all about relationships and experiences.  He writes about the little things and how it’s our every day actions in our customer relations that often speak louder than our products themselves. In a time where internet competitors are tougher than ever--it’s important to maintain that good relationships with our customers that a computer screen can’t compete with!

fresh ideas….

new submersible acolytes

             Have you seen the new submersible floralyte from Acolyte? They have improved their round submersible to include a little button that allows you to literally switch it up. You can choose from a constant glow, a romantic candle flicker or a blinking strobe for party time! In stock we have white, but other colors are available on special order. The white are only $27.95 per pack of 10! (Only $2.45 more per box than the original!)

rave of the week…………………..……………………………

derby time

             Let yourself be inspired by the festivities this weekend at the Kentucky Derby! How about taking cues from the big floppy hats, paper fans and mint julep cups to concoct a winning southern summer window display. A touch of aqua and red would certainly be fun--even accents of tissue paper pom poms would be easy and inexpensive! Gather up any horseshoes or vintage trophy cups if you got ‘em!

JUST ARRIVED!

 

3-Function

Acolytes!

 

With the push of a button you can change your light from constant glow to candle flicker to strobe light blinks!

The derby is also called the “Run for the Roses”--imagine the possibilities for florists! (Who knows roses better than we do?) What about a special on red roses designed in mint julep cups? It might be fun to name a “design of the week” after the winning horse. (those horses have some fun names!). Post pictures on Facebook! Get your customers involved! Have fun with it!
