What an exciting Mother’s Day at J. Morris Flowers. It was record breaking for us and we loved spending the whole week surrounded by our favorite Spring blooms. To top it off, so many of our customers chose to send or a wrap of flowers, and I loved it.
Why? Two reasons. First, the way we package a wrap appeals to my sense of style, it feels modern and sophisticated. We use market paper, twine and ribbon with letting the tops of the spring blooms peer out from the paper. I always say, women are hard wired for flowers. And, if it feels like the flowers and greens were handpicked just for us, we feel loved and appreciated. Second, it tells me that there are more and more talented people in Loudoun County who have an interest in working with flowers themselves, creating a design that suits their personal style.
We make it easy order a wrap. Whether you order on-line, call in advance or walk-in for a wrap on the go, we will take a few important steps to make sure that your gift has the impact you were hoping for. First, we’ll select a medley of flowers that will be make for a balanced design with colors and contrast that work well together. Then, we’ll process each flower by trimming the bottoms and clearing the excess foliage that mildews in water. We peel away the guard petals so the inner flower shows. We’ll even take some time to prepare a basic weave of the flowers so they could go right into a vase if desired.
If we’re delivering a wrap for you, we can tube the stems so they have a source of water while they wait for the receiver to begin their design.
A wrap does not come in a vase. (Thought I should make sure thats clear.) That’s why it’s important that the recipient has a small collection of vases with which to work. Maybe your not sure that they do. Contact Meredith in our studio, we have quite a few outstanding items that are available for retail purchase, and yes, we will deliver that, too. It really is important to have a good collection of vases and the search for unique vases can get addicting. That may be the perfect thing to buy for that loved one who has everything. My sister picks the vase she wants to use for the weekly flowers she arranges before she picks the flowers. A different vase for each season is a nice idea, and you may want to buy a short and tall vase for varied designs. So add vases to the list of things that you can buy for that special someone in your life who has a fancy flowers. You can never have enough scarves and you can never have enough vases.
