If you browse the web, you’ll find many flower shop sites that carry the same arrangements for Mother’s Day. But how can you find something that is not mass-produced, something that is tasteful and beautiful?
You can start with our Martin’s Exclusives for Mother’s Day.
Months of effort have gone into choosing the right combinations of flowers and vases that make up our spring and summer collection for 2012. Since no two Moms are the same, we’ve created four themes you can choose from.
Both these arrangements have lively combinations of magenta, blue and green. They are both arranged in soft green ceramic bowls, and are all-around in style. Jive is the name of the larger one, and Jitterbug is the smaller. Here they are:
Although Jitterbug looks larger in the photo, it is actually 9″ wide and 9″ tall. Jive is quite a bit larger at 15″ wide and 11″ tall. Jive features Green Fashion roses, Carambole gerbera, blue hydrangea,hot pink/purple carnations and green hypericum. There is a collar of galax leaves around the bottom, and accents of salal leaves. Jitterbug has green Anastasia chrysanthemums instead of roses, and a touch of hot pink waxflower. The prices? Jive is $125 as shown ($160 for a larger Deluxe version) and Jitterbug is $45 as shown ($60 for the Deluxe).
These arrangements have a lovely, sophisticated look. They are both designed with blooms of Cymbidium orchid, which are known for lasting for a long time. What makes them unusual is the inclusion of faux succulent plants as decoration.
Orchid Elegance is the tallest one, measuring 25″ in height and 15″ in width. It is designed in a beautiful creamy white ceramic vase with shiny circular patterns on it. The foliages used are from tropical plants – Song of Jamaica, Liriope, Aspidistra. It is tall and quite elegant.
Orchid Beauty is the perky little sister, with lime green Cymbidium blooms. It is designed in a glossy white ceramic dish, and has a nice faux echeveria. Also a one-sided arrangement, it is sure to be an eye-catcher.
Prices for these two- Orchid Elegance is $95 (Deluxe version $175) and Orchid Beauty is $60 (Deluxe version $85).
