Alicia’s bright and beautiful wedding

When a bride comes to us and wants lots of colour in her bouquets, we get excited!

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

The bride’s bouquet

Alicia carried a mix of gerbera daisies, mini carnations, green button poms and white stephanotis.

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.

If you have a wedding coming up in the next year, call us to see what ideas we have for you!

Prom!

Prom is coming up for the high school down the street.

We love this time of year. I get a little excited reminiscing about my prom. Was it really that long ago?

The girls here at Pizazz! used to force a corsage on me every year. I always hated the old elastic wristband and the wires scratched my wrist.

Now?

These kids today don’t know how good they have it. (I feel like my father when I say this!)

The bracelets are so cool and the flowers are put on with a special glue instead of with wires.

Here’s two corsages we made a few weeks ago

Red rose corsage on the ‘runway’ bracelet

Doesn’t that red rose corsage have ‘rockstar’ written all over it?

White rose corsage on ‘special day’ bracelet

This was for a lady’s 90th birthday. I’m guessing she felt pretty awesome when she received it!

Go like us on facebook because I’m going to be adding more and more pictures of our corsages as prom season goes on!

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.

Claire Burke – New Fragrance!

I’m really digging the new Claire Burke Fragrance. It’s called Sparkling Citron Verbena. It’s the first ever fan choice fragrance!

As I said in my last post, I LOVE spring. The citrus blend in this fragrance is so light and refreshing it’s got spring written all over it.

The Claire Burke website describes is it perfectly:

Awaken your senses with crisp citrus essences of Meyer Lemon, Lime and Citron mingled with French Cassis and Verbena Leaves.

The potpourri is really nice because it’s got lots of big chunky elements. The more big pieces, the nicer it arranges in a bowl.

Jar Candles

I really like the filled candles as well. We have never carried Claire Burke Candles before but they are such a great addition to our line. They burn really nicely.

 

I found a little info graphic on how to arrange a nice potpourri bowl! Hope it helps.
