A Sante Fe Florist With A Custom Approach

Unlike most of the Gulf Coast flower gardens that are not doing well in this summer’s heat, DW Florals and Gifts is full of blooms. The owner, Theresa Sobnosky, is exquisitely talented with using what she has in the cooler to create custom arrangements.

She shared that her knack for fashioning custom arrangements comes from her ability to read people. Sobnosky has over 30 years of experience in the floral business and stated that although she is not a visual artiste, she is able to look at her flowers in the cooler and automatically know how to set them in the vase. This energetic florist also involves her clients in the process and shares her knowledge with both existing and new customers.

Tips On Buying Mothers Day Flowers

Tips On Buying Mothers Day Flowers

Mothers Day is a special occasion that is meant to honor mothers for their sacrificial role in caring for and raising their children. There are many gifts that are suitable for this occasion, but flowers are still one of the most popular options. Nearly all mothers love flowers and there are many flower varieties and bouquet types to choose from.

First of all, one will want to find a good florist in the area. If one cannot find a florist that offers the type of arrangement he or she is looking for, then working with a florist online can be a good idea. Many florists sell their creations online; these arrangements only take a day or two to arrive at one’s doorstep and are as fresh and beautiful as the day the flowers were picked.

Choosing the right flower types and colors is also important. Roses and carnations are considered to be traditional Mothers day flowers but one does not have to feel limited to choosing between these two options alone. Bright and colorful flower arrangements using pansies, lilies and other flowers are also suitable. Ideally, one should try to choose flower in a mother’s favorite color.

Buying Mothers day flowers it not difficult, but one should put some forethought into choosing the right arrangement. A good arrangement will not only be beautiful but it will include the types and colors of flowers that the recipient likes. It is also wise to order the arrangement well in advance to make sure it arrives on time.

Forget the Flowers – Find the Special Mother of the Bride Gifts

Find the Special Mother of the Bride Gifts

Mother of the Bride Tinket Box

On a wedding day, the eyes of everyone are not only on the bride but also on the mothers of the bride and groom. For the mums, this day is every bit as special and emotional for them as it is for their offspring and they are usually given a special thank you gifts. After all, without mothers, none of the wedding party would be where they are on the big day!

And even though all eyes will be on the bride and her dress, everyone’s attention is also fixed on what the mothers of the bride and groom are wearing too because both mothers will have taken as much care with their outfit as the bride has. Both also play a pivotal role, both in the run-up to the big day – helping with organizing and planning – and on the day itself, particularly during the reception when they often play the role of hostess, chatting to guests, socializing and doing their best to put everyone at ease.

Traditionally, the happy couple say thank you to both mothers by presenting them with a bouquet of flowers, usually during the speeches. But it is now becoming more common for mothers of the bride and groom to receive something a little more personal. The wide variety of gifts available today makes it easier for the couple to be more thoughtful and adventurous in saying thank you and mother of the bride gifts are as equally suitable for mother of the groom.

Mother of the bride gifts can range from the very simple to the more adventurous.

  • Fill a box with her favorite scented soaps and bath pampering products for a gift that has the very personal touch.
  • Choose from an incredible variety of trinket or jewellery boxes, engraved perhaps with her name and your own thank you to her.
  • Splash out and send both mothers on a spa day or a weekend away where they can be pampered within an inch of their lives.
  • Delight her with a gift to treasure always such as a pearl necklace or a locket in gold or silver.
  • Choose gorgeous handkerchiefs engraved with her initials and presented in a beautiful presentation box.
  • Pick a delicious champagne or wine set with glasses or goblets engraved with the happy couple’s names and the date of the wedding. This is a mother of the bride gift that she will treasure.
  • Or why not make the present even more personal by selecting a series of photographs of the couple – either from childhood or from the wedding itself – and placing them in a solid silver or wooden frame?

In short, there’s no limit to how you can say thank you to your mother, whether you are the bride or groom. After all, your mother is likely to have spent as much time and energy as you have on organizing this day – she deserves to be spoiled, deserves to be center of attention for part of the day and deserves to take the plaudits from other guests.

Be original – forget the flowers and present well considered mother of the bride gifts.

Guest post for Personalized Wedding Gifts Shop where you will find a wide range of wedding thank you gifts.
