As we prepare for one of our busiest days here at Best Wishes Floral (Valentine's), here's a quick document of what we were up to in the 2012 holiday season. It was an adventure setting up our newly remodeled space for Christmas and Hanukkah, playing with all the new ways we can use our ceiling, for example.
These hanging lanterns with their nice glass cylinder vases inside have all kinds of possibilities for home decor. Either hung from the ceiling or placed on a shelf or table, you'll have all kinds of fun filling them with interesting textures and shapes. Here, we've strung some Christmas lights through them and filled them with brightly colored wire balls and then adorned them with this great natural-looking snowy garland.
Mark models our fun light-up headbands and Undercover Santa glasses. These are certainly a way to brighten your holiday gathering. When you're tired of decorating the tree, decorate your head!
This was a simple artificial arrangement we put together for a customer who wanted to use some of the beautiful light-up birch branches we carry. A festive look that lights up the often very dark winter nights.
This arrangement went to one of our weekly standing orders, and this is what it looked like after a week! Evergreens paired with green hydrangea, red alstroemeria, silver seeded eucalyptus, some leucadendron, and red curly ting stuck through shiny green wire balls.
Another of our weekly standing order, this one shot on location at Doolittle's Woodfire Grill in Golden Valley. Besides the incredible food and great service, its worth the weekly trip alone to check out our flowers next to the host stand! This is giant purple kale, purple stock, yellow lily, and Peruvian star alstroemeria, accented with curly willow.
This was a trio of table arrangements for a holiday party. Each was complimentary and unique, bringing a bright festive feel with the gold Italian ruscus, and fresh white freesia, heather, and snapdragons.
For one of our lucky customers that receives a weekly flower bouquet. A bubble bowl with river rocks, hydrangea, hot pink spray roses, yellow gerbera, dark brown myrtle and those beautiful coral colored succulent flower spikes. This is simple but has lots of visual interest to enjoy.
This arrangement had almost a desert/southwest flair with the cactus-like evergreens accenting the Douglas fir, fresh hydrangea and carnations. Very unique and long lasting.
