Saved by the Bud

             Those Europeans…. stylish, sophisticated, and quite the sense of humor! We recently stumbled on www.savedbythebud.com created by the Netherlands Flower Bulb Information Center. Although it’s geared toward the single straight guy, as two married women, we would argue that anyone would get a chuckle (and good information) out of the site.

             This site is something to share with your customers--especially for Valentine’s Day--but is good anytime of the year. One of the great links is called “you need professional help” (well.. don’t we all?) which defines what a florist is, and also warns about “faux florists” which are the order gatherers posing as local florists.

             We love how this site puts the fun back into flowers with articles such as “who’s the sexpot”  and “buds on a budget”. To check out the Netherlands Flower Bulb professional site check out www.bulb.com.

Lyon Ribbon

             If you haven’t tried Lyon ribbon--you need to! This wired taffeta is manufactured in Europe, so it definitely has style! We love it for it’s complex, shimmery colors that is oh-so-chic. It looks especially fun when paired with bouquet bucklezz. It is reasonably priced at 69¢ per yard for the No. 9 width so it can be used on everyday designs as well as beautiful bridal bouquets. We also offer a Lyon swatchbook  that has all the colors in it! The price is $19.95 per book, and you get a coupon for your first purchase! Order yours here.

Recreations

             The buzz is all about Valentine’s day, but to tell the truth, we’ve already begun to focus our attention to the spring season! This cold weather has made us especially interested in rich vibrant colors and textures. The recreations in “fresh basil” fits the bill perfectly! We love how these containers are made from recycled paper (something to brag about with your customers), and can biodegrade after the flowers have faded--which is good news for the landfills!

             With several different shapes and sizes, they are perfect for a variety of different designs. Our favorite size is the No. 5 urn. This petite urn is perfectly proportioned at 5” tall and 5” in diameter--and perfectly priced at $2.30 each. It’s just begging us to take him home to fill with spring bulbs! Another favorite of ours is the design bowl--a great alternative to basic design bowls--priced reasonably at $1.35!
