Flower Market Collection

I designed our Flower Market Collection with simplicity in mind. The arrangements are made from bunches Spring blooms found at any flower stand this time of year. You may even have them in your own garden. We have to take advantage of designing with bulb flowers like Daffodils, Tulips, Hyacinth and Iris. Their colors are so vivid. We capture the essence of springtime and new beginnings and in the designs and because they are modern and a little less complex, we are able to price them to fit any budget. It’s nice to be able to send flowers just to give someone a lift. This collection is perfect for these moments.

I plan to have flower market options available throughout the year that capture each season in a stunning yet casual way. 

Artisan Collection

The Artisan Collection is my luxury collection inspired by some of my favorite works in The Louvre in Paris, France. Have you ever seen the massive “Coronation of Napoleon” by Jacque-Louis Davide? Even though I was studying a painting from 1807, I was mindful to chose flowers, vases and an overall design style that reflects current trends in home fashion.

Realism, inspired by a painting in Le Louvre in Paris France is $115.

Two of the arrangements, “Gracious” and “Realism” feature a marine blue vase with a kaleidoscope of colors in yellow, peach, hot pink and shades of green. To get this color palette in the design, I chose pink and white Stock, pink Garden Roses, hot pink Veronica, pale pink and white Ranunculus, yellow Calla Lilies and a few supporting Roses. A mix of my favorite greens and a few blooming branches complete the designs. 

Impessionist in a cut-glass vase for $90.

“Impressionist” and “Inspired” come in a cut glass vase and represent the glass pyramid found at the entrance to the museum. Each design includes the more unique Hellebore in plum. This flower has a waxy petal surface and a yellow center. It’s really a hearty flower, perfect for delivered arrangements. White Ranunculus and Garden Roses are surrounded by plum colored Tulips, lavender Sweet Pea and purple Hyacinth. The greeneries are some of my favorite and include the foliage from Geranium, Pennycress and Umbrella Fern. This color palette is one of my favorites for spring in lavender, purple, white and green. 

To round out the spring colors in the collection, I designed “Joyful” and “Watercolor” in shades of pink and white. These arrangements are feminine with mix of blooms perfect for the woman in your life. The designs include Garden Roses, Rice Flower, flowering branches and emerald green leaves. 

Joyful for $90.

These two designs come in a gold ornate vase reminiscent of the gilded frames that house the paintings in the Louvre’s galleries. “The Wedding Feast at Cana” by Paolo Veronese includes so many shades of muted pastels including soft pinks and mauve.

The last arrangement is “Painter” arranged in a stone vase with a lively combination of the colors in this entire collection. This design includes Snapdragons and Huckleberry get added to the flowers that we have used in other designs.

Wouldn’t you like to know the answer to that question before you click the order button Mother’s Day? Well, with a little help from our marketing team, I am prepared to share some breaking news about the types of floral designs that appeal to our local mothers.

Just some of the comments that we received on   F   a  cebook.  Like us on Facebook to get all the latest news from J. Morris Flowers.

Ok, yes, the research for this blog is very informal. Monday morning, we conducted a straw poll on Facebook, encouraging women and men to choose their favorite designs from our Mother’s Day collection. True, most of the respondents are some of our biggest fans. But, their voices must and will be heard, I say. Most of the respondents have followed our work for some time now and have established more than just a little expertise about flowers and floral design. Several attend our classes regularly and are beginning to get very comfortable with clippers, chicken wire and greens. A trustworthy group, I believe.

Before sharing the results, I’d like to muse that some of your family members may still be unsure about just what to get mom for this special day. In fact, there may be a voice inside your own head suggesting that you should be buying something useful like gardening gloves, a trowel and a new watering can. Stop, right there. Mother’s Day is intended to be a celebration, a day-long recognition and a moment for mom to pause and, yes, “smell the roses.” Ok, I think we have saved the situation and I am now ready to present our findings.

First, here are the designs that more than sixty-five, yes, sixty-five local Loudoun County residents selected from in our poll.

The question was phrased this way:

“We are ready to do a little market research... and we need your help. Calling all floral enthusiasts. Here are six designs that we are offering for Mother's Day. Would you mind casting a vote for your favorites?”

And the winners are... it's a tie. Jennifer and Daphne. To be fair, the margins for first and last place were very slim and all of the designs above received plenty of votes and some amazing comments. 

We'd still love to know which design appeals to you most. Use the comment section below to let us know. Ready to shop for Mother's Day? Use this button.
