Inspiration from a balloon February 16, 2013

Where does inspiration come from for you? Today for me it came from a balloon, a singing balloon.

Every time the catchy tribe played, I was inspired to do a little dance, felt encouraged to live up to it’s proclamation that ‘You’re unbelievable!’.

What did this inspire? The desire for everyone to feel that way when they walk into our space… And since we want an audible way to know someone has walked in when we are in the back… Why not play a short song phrase like that when the door opens?

Yes! Love it!

Now, does anyone know of a product like that, is do I have to invent it… ?

 

Cool ways Ti Leaves were used at Arts and Flowers April 29, 2012

Arts and Flowers at the Phoenix Art Museum is one of the highlights of my year! One thing that is fascinating is to see the creative uses of so many different flowers and foliages.

This year, I was struck with how many different ways the floral designers used ti leaves.

From the very classic use of them as a base and structure, as in this arrangement by Don Storrs:

To an amazingly intricate creation of a buffalo, entirely out of black to leaves, by Nicole Richardson:

The variety is endless, and they are very versatile.

I used them to represent the robes of women watching from the top of the house:

Below, the ti leaves are used to mimic fabric, on this arrangement by Deanna Beachler and Tracy Krznarich:

And in this arrangement created by Lisa Allen, the ti leaves are rolled to create a sense of movement:

Flowers Shipped in a Box. Really. January 29, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — godsgardentreasures @ 3:56 pm

Saw a link to a website where your wedding flowers get shipped in a box! Would you really want that in order to save money? What if they arrive wilted?

Here’s the link: http://www.bridesign.com/
And others have had the experience of ordering flowers online, expecting them to be hand-delivered, only to find out from the recipient that they came in a box, possibly even left on the doorstep.

I have had flowers delivered by a driver and from the mail in a box. The ones on the box have died within 2-3 days and the ones from the driver live weeks some times. I have had this with the type that are plants you can re-plant in the ground and if they are delivered in a box they die, no matter how much you love them.

Thank you for sharing your experience, Cindy! Hand-delivery is the way to go. One way to avoid receiving box-delivered gifts is to give your family our information with a request to go through us in the future. But do this away from any holiday where they might send you something, so it’s not seen as a sly request.

Here are some tips of what to watch for when shopping online:
1. if the website offers a free vase, that should raise some questions, because if there is an option without a vase, it most likely isn’t going to be hand-delivered.
2. call a local florist –  call or order from us and we’ll ensure it gets to a local florist, or use http://www.findaflorist.com – all the florists listed in their search engine are local!
3. look at the ‘about us’ page and find their local address – if you don’t see one, it’s probably not local to that area.
