2. I Know You Like Sweet Sayings...

3. You Can't Stand Valentine's Day...I'm Gonna Send You Something

Love Stinks [17V06] - $39.95

Is the love of your life not a big fan of Valentine's Day? Cupid make them cringe? That's reason enough to send something to help them with the cause of Anti-Valentine's Day!

Love Stinks is filled with daisies, carnations, alstroemeria and carnations with an adorable and non-scented plush skunk holding an adorable heart with "Love Stinks" embroidered on it.

4. This Will Make Your Office Mates Beary Jealous...

Crazy About You [17V02] - $62.95

This is one of those arrangments we have to be careful with because it is SO adorable that one may attempt to hug the entire bouquet before removing the plush bear!

Three lavender-kissed roses, nine Purple Moon series carnations, limonium and a huggable, lovable teddy bear dressed to the nines with a bouquet matching ribbon. I'm a sucker for plush animals and if your special person can't say "no" to them either AND loves getting flowers at the office...this one is the winning pick.

5. Going All Jane Austen for You...

Love Speak [11V01] - $82.95

Did I have you at Jane Austen? Strike a chord on the piano forte?

How else to elicite "a thousand times yes!" than with fragrant stargazer lilies, pink carnations, and the most delicate pink roses you've ever seen? Artfully arranged eucalyptus, airy larkspur and leatherfern combine for a final look fit for a romantic walk-out-of doors with your beloved. Except you don't have to take the walk if it's not on the order of the day; we can bring the view straight to you!

 6. Roses are Red, and Many Colors It's True, During       Valentine's Day They Are Precious but not as Precious as You...

Vin Rouge [13V07] - $99.95 

The rose. Timeless, elegant and representing love and romance through the ages. This still holds true today as roses are still the most popular flower to send celebrate the Valentine's Day.

 Life is grand when you have love in it. Our Enchantment bouquet is visual expression of what cannot always be articulated with words.  

The fine designers at Gillespie Florists start with a large 10” Gala vase and expertly design your bouquet with yellow lilies, bright blue delphinium, purple larkspur, vibrant orange carnations, blazing orange roses, truly yellow daisies, white monte casino, deep red mini carnations, solidago and lush greenery!

Spring is such a highly anticipated time of year that we thought it might be fun to highlight some of the fresh cut flowers that the season has to offer.  There are so many lovely blossoms to pick from in spring: daffodils, orchids, hyacinth and of course tulips to name a few. 

tulips3Tulips - Tulips are the obvious favorite for spring! They come in a myriad of colors: near black purple, blues, reds, pinks, yellows, orange and even white.
 

Orchids - Orchids are ideal cut flowers as they last for up to a week and hold their shape. Available naturally in whites, greens and purples you can also find white ones dyed in all colors such as vibrant blue.hyacinth2

Hyacinth - Hyacinths have a similar look to lilacs (bunches of tiny flowers in white or purple) but tend to last much longer when cut. These beauties are also highly fragrant.  A great in season spring flower option!

Iris - Lovely iris are wonderful cut flowers that can last several days.  They are affordable and come in many colors.

Daffodil - Warm and happy daffodils are also excellent cut spring wedding flowers and come in yellows and whites.

 

We hope that you find this information helpful as you choose flowers to accent your special day. Remember roses are always available (in pretty much all colors) and can be incorporated into your seasonal flower arrangements.
