The flowers and greenery listed in these groupings were chosen due to predictability and popularity.
Predictability: Not every flower that grows under the sun is good for DIY (i.e. Lily of the Valley, Astilbe, etc). Although we can get our hands on any flower, we only like to sell the flowers that are hardy, predictable, and easy to work with.
Popularity: I find too many choices to be overwhelming. Thus the reason we spend an hour scouring Netflix only to give up and watch an episode of New Girl. The specimens listed on our 'By-the-Bunch' pages are simply the ones that are in style. If there's a particular flower that you cannot find on our site, simply send us an email and we'll either do a custom quote, or tell you that the requested flower is fussy, unruly, and quite inconsiderate to work with. Either way, we're here for you!
Ok, on to the next tidbit of info. These flowers are grouped together for a reason. Putting together a floral arrangement is a bit like putting together an outfit. Think about it, we get out of the shower, we put on our underroos (I hate the word 'panties' and refuse to put it on my business site, except for here.....to tell you I hate it), then we put on our clothes to cover our body (cause my mom told me she wasn't raising a floozy), and then we bust out the accessories and bling ourselves out like a Kardashian!
Same steps for flowers:
Greenery: We begin with greenery, it the foundation of an arrangement. Do you like a more woodsy look (seeded eucalyptus), something light and airy (silver queen pitt), something light green and springy (bupleureum)??? You get the point, decide which look you're going for and start by choosing your greenery.
Volume Flowers and Roses: These are the flowers that are going to cover a lot of area and are cost-friendly. Filling a vase with a few hydrangea is a lot less pricey than filling them with anemones and ranunculus. As a florist, this is the second thing I establish when writing up a design for my client....what will be the base flowers of the design? What will cover a lot of area without blowing the budget?
Accent Flowers: These little flowers are the bling of a floral arrangement. Like jewelry, they are small and bit pricey but you don't need a lot to make a statement. If your heart desires all 'Accent Flowers', then have at it, sister! I won't stop you!
