Just as the aster flower conveys patience, Fleurenasci would like to convey our sincere gratitude for your patience as we celebrated May’s very special life events!! We are back in the shop today excited to get busy creating!! Can’t wait to see you soon…..
While researching new and different flowers I came across this excellent article about the Best Flowers for each month of spring. What a great find and an awesome reminder that we should take a moment to enjoy the beauty we can find each month in the flowers around us.
As we enter the month of May, pay close attention to such flowers as the Peony, Lilac and Garden Roses. In June Dahlias will also join the list. The article even suggested some beautiful pairings for a spectacular bouquet in your home. Why not try the following:
• Daffodils and Daisies, Iris in shades of yellow-white blue
• Lilac and Ranunculus in shades of lavender and blush
• Vibernum and Calla Lilly in shades of white, yellow and green
• Sweet Peas and Hyacinth and Lisianthus in shades of bright pinks
Okay pop quiz … do you know what Saturday is? No, it’s not a great ballgame or a NASCAR race, it’s Valentine’s Day. And it is a day you truly do not want to mess up. Like many, you might be buying that someone special flowers, or maybe even chocolates. We can’t help you out with preserving the candy, but we most certainly can help you with those flowers as they begin to dry and wither. After you have enjoyed the beauty of the bouquet, bring them to us and we can turn those dried flowers into beautiful pieces of jewelry, letter openers, bookmarks, etc. That’s right, there is no need to toss the flowers into the garbage. Just take a look at how beautiful this piece is made from roses! We hope you all have a wonderful day, and we look forward to turning your flowers into a treasured keepsake.

As I read the article, 4 Things Death Teaches Us About Life, my mind drifted toward gratitude. It’s been my experience that remembering to be grateful takes patience and practice. Two really cool things I’ve discovered about being grateful is that it’s never too late to begin and should you stumble … it’s okay, simply start again. And as cliché as it sounds, there honestly is always something to be grateful for in life!
In my business, quite often I find myself gently listening as the celebration of life flowers are being left to my care. Gently listening to the exposed emotions as the memories flow. Memories of happy moments spent together. As I listen, I am reminded to be grateful for each day, grateful for memories past, and grateful for memories yet to be made.
As you are making resolutions for the New Year, I hope you look toward and find peace and gratitude. It’s never too late…
That’s right … Girl Scout Cookies! Who doesn’t love them? In the midst of creating fabulous pieces for Fleurenasci, even we need a snack break. What could be better than a Tagalong and a big glass of milk? Well how about three new flavors of cookies? Yes, on Monday the Girl Scouts of America announced the addition of Toffee-Tastic, Trios and Rah Rah Raisins. These new flavors will be available when the Girl Scouts begin selling the cookies this month. Another first for the organization will be the ability of cookie lovers all over the US to order their favorite cookies online.
According to the CNN article, approximately 1.5 million Girl Scouts sell 200 million boxes of cookies each year during the selling season, which begins in January, according to Anna Maria Chavez, the CEO of Girl Scouts of the USA. This year marks the organization’s 98th year of cookie sales.
So remember to support your local Girl Scout troop and order those cookies!
Poinsettias, the flower of the beautiful season so many of us just celebrated. But in a few short weeks those beautiful, vibrant flowers will begin to fade, fold and crumble away. Stop right there. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to hold onto these Christmas memories for a lifetime? Why not bring those amazing flowers to us and let us create you a one-of-a-kind keepsake. And why not hold onto this flower and the memories of Christmas 2014, according to Teleflora the poinsettia has a very special holiday meaning.
“Also known as the Christmas Star and Christmas Flower, it’s said that this winter flower’s association with Christmas comes from a Mexican legend. The story goes that a child, with no means for a grander gift, gathered humble weeds from the side of the road to place at the church alter on Christmas Eve. As the congregation witnessed a Christmas miracle, the weeds turned into brilliant red and green flowers.”
The Aztecs thought the flower stood for purity, but today the December birth flower, symbolize good cheer and success and are said to bring wishes of mirth and celebration.
Got your interest? Don’t let those flowers dry up and wilt away, bring them to us and together let’s create something unique!
