Our shop rarely carries carnations or mums. Our year-round staples are roses (in scores of varieties), hydrangeas, lilies, tropicals and seasonal offerings that come from local growers. While we’ve taken pride in avoiding “cheap” flowers like carnations and mums (except for special orders), I’ve always gotten confused come fall. The fact is, mums are traditional […]
Are you decorating for fall? Here in Florida where our seasonal change is so mild that we sometimes wonder if it isn’t still summer (hey, it’s an outrageous 90 degrees outside even in September), we have to do SOMETHING to convince ourselves that fall has, in fact, arrived. Putting wreaths on our front doors, autumn […]

This week we’ve been redecorating our shop for the fall season. If you come by, you’ll notice the front window has an entirely new display. The display was created by stylist extraordinaire Paul Ponn. Paul’s award-winning design work was featured in the August 2012 issue of Flowers& magazine, and he’s currently competing in the Barcelona […]
