There are so many possibilites that open up!

Amy designed this wedding for Alicia and it turned out gorgeous.

Thanks to the bride for bringing us some beautiful photos by Kate Dath Photography

Now that’s a LOT of colour!!

I love just looking at these bouquets. The colours scream ‘summer!!!’

Colourful wrap and broach on the handle

These cool touches, like the broach on the handle of the bouquet, are great ideas to make your wedding bouquet totally unique.

How fresh are my flowers?

People often ask us how fresh the flowers are. We’re so lucky to have customers who care about quality!

We have a rule at Pizazz: If you wouldn’t give it to your best friend, it doesn’t leave the store.

While it seems like a simple creed, it makes all the difference in the quality of our products!

The reason we know that our flowers are so fresh is we go through our product very quickly. We are a busy shop and we have a rotation system that ensures product gets used in the order it was purchased. We know what to buy, how much of it to buy, and when to buy it.

We have fresh flower trucks stop 9 times a week (yes, I’m serious!) We purchase over 300 – 500 roses a in a normal week and we go through all of them. If we don’t use them all up (which is rare), we dry them and use them to make our little thanksgiving munchkin pumpkins.

Our things are fresh because we know that you’re giving a gift and it’s got to be awesome!

Here’s what you can do to help:

  1. Keep your arrangement watered
  2. Keep it away from drafts and heat
  3. Keep it away from fruit
  4. Keep it away from cigarette smoke and car exhaust.

Say Thanks to your Admin. Assistant!

They are the people who make your office run smoothly.

Could you really do your job with out them?


It’s Administrative Professionals Week and you just know that your office support staff deserves some extra recognition for all the great work they do!

Here are some ideas for great gift ideas:

1. Flowers (obviously!!)

Flowers have been shown to increase employee productivity. We have lots of arrangements from $15-$45 made up just for this week. They are desk sized so they are perfect for your office.

2. Plants

Plants are wonderful for cleaning the air in your office and keeping your employees healthy!

3. Balloons

Balloon bouquets add some cheerful colour to your office and let your assistant know that they are appreciated in a fun way!

4. Fruit and snack basket

A great way to show your appreciation if you have a larger staff. Give them some healthy treats to munch on (as well as some indulgent chocolates!)

These are all great ideas for Administrative Professional’s Week! You can call us or order online, as always. We’re also open 8:30-7 each weekday, so you can pop in before you head to the office or on your lunch. Now get back to work.

Mallory and Wes’ January Wedding

I received some pictures from Jessica Lally Photography from a wedding that we did back in January. It was beautiful and sparkly and everything a blingy wedding should be! Mallory didn’t have an exact vision of what she wanted so she let the designer, Pat, have a creative license.

I delivered the wedding myself and when the bride opened the box, she exclaimed “Oh LOOK!”

She loved it!! They were so kind and came back and gave Pat a big ol’ hug a few weeks after the wedding.

Thanks to Mallory and Wes for letting us share in their special day. And thanks again to Jessica Lally for the beautiful pictures :o)

And here are some pictures I took of the bride receiving her flowers and my artsy close up of the bouquet :o)

We’ll be back on Monday with a contest for your mama :o) You don’t want to miss it!

How to Care for your Easter Lily

We’re open today! It’s Good Friday, I know, but we’re busy little beavers over here! At Easter, as any other holiday, things get a little crazy. Please excuse me for recycling a post from a few years ago!! This is what I wrote back then :o)


You received an Easter Lily. It’s beautiful, it’s wonderful. Now, what do you do with it?

Easter Lilies like it on the cooler side of things. Indoor temperatures of up to 70 degrees in the day and during the nighttime they prefer around 60-65 degrees. They are probably not the best idea for the little old lady who has her thermostat set at 85.

They like moderate light. Moderate light means bright but indirect sunlight.  Think sunny room, but not right in the window. If you can read the paper without turning a light on, that’s moderate light.

They should be watered nearly every day. If the plant is wrapped in decorative foil, make sure that there isn’t any standing water in the bottom. This will cause root rot. It’s the plant equivalent of having wet socks on.

The blooms will last longer if the anthers (yellow pollen-bearing pieces) are removed from the center of the flowers.

As one bloom dies, make sure to cut it off. It makes it prettier and you’re not wasting any water feeding a dying bloom.

It is almost impossible to force Easter lilies into bloom a second time indoors. An alternative is to plant them outdoors in spring, where they may bloom again in fall. The plants will need a site with bright light but some shelter from extreme heat and wind. They are not hardy enough to survive winter outside, so don’t expect to see them next summer if you leave them out in fall.

As one final note, lilies will give your cat a stomach ache. If your cat is like mine, eating every bloom in your home, put it up somewhere he can’t reach it.



(I promise I’ll have new content next week!!)
