To decorate Christmas trees, or not to decorate Christmas trees

We have been crazy busy trying to get Christmas stuff out early. My question to you is do you want to see Christmas this early or should we wait until after our Corn Maze (Nov 1st)? When I was at AIFD symposium they suggested getting Christmas out early so people would not feel guilty for buying for themselves and by getting the product out early, this way it helped spread out the Christmas buying time out for people. Let me know what you think?

One of the best things about the floral industry is......

Now that I have accomplished my goal to get my AIFD, I would like to continue to grow. The Minnesota State Florist Association has an accreditation called MNCFD. This is a program that encompasses the whole of running a business, design and fiances. I think I am going to apply my self to achieving this next. I love to grow and learn, next year I will go for my PFCI: which is a professional speaking accreditation. It is fun to have goals and to push ourselves, this way life is never boring. Rock on and keep learning! Lesa Killian CFD, AIFD Inductee.

Flowers, The Beauty of Flowers!

There is nothing better that waking up and opening your eyes to the beauty of flowers. Enjoying the scent and look of fresh flowers on at your bed side makes waking up on the right side of the bed possible every day. Having flowers around the house can only raise the spirits of all who see them. There have been studies done that having flowers in the work place make people more productive and happier employees. Raise the spirits of those around you, enjoy some flowers. Your worth it!

Flowers in Boston

People love to grow and learn. By attending symposium's and class' we become better business people and designers. The AIFD Symposium has been the best medium I have come across to expand my horizons. This is the chance to see so many talented designers in one place at one time, I just absorb all the creativity in the room. I have enclosed a picture of one of my test pieces. I look forward in sharing all the new tricks and tips that I learned in design with you. Lesa

Prom Flowers how important are they to you?

Are prom flowers important to you or are they something that is just expected?
We enjoy designing corsages for the individual. Each one is different and custom made to fit the personality of the person who will be waring them. This is more fun for us but it is also more difficult and time consuming. With prom just around the corner I would love to hear your thoughts. Is price the most important or the design and quality? Check out our Face Book for more pictures of our prom work.

Where oh where should you buy your Valentine flowers from?

Do you order your roses from a 1800 number or from your local florist? If you pick up the phone and call 1800..... to purchase your dozen roses for $29.99 do you realise that they are delivered by UPS or FEDEX who's vehicles are not heated, they leave them at your door whether you are home or not out in the below freezing weather. Hum mm, what do you think those flowers are going to look like after being in the cold for that long? You might as well throw your money in the toilet and flush. If you use a real florist your product comes to you fresh, designed with the utmost care and delivered in a temperature controlled vehicle, so your flowers will last. Enjoy the beauty, call your local florist to get the best product your money can buy.
