Hello again! We need to take care of some business on today’s blog. (We’re a flower shop, so our business is flowery, at least. 🙂 ) We’ve been so busy crafting, and creating lately, that we’ve kind of lost track of time. Anyway, the first order of business on our agenda is that, as you probably know, Graduation is coming up. (Wasn’t that professional, sounding!?) If you need flowers for the party you’re planning, would like some delivered to the Graduate, or need a special arrangement for a grad party gift–now’s the time to order. (Check our website, or call us directly. If you’re hosting a party, and looking for something really different–check out Sweet River’s Candy Buffet option. It’s pretty cool.) Next up: weddings. If you’re planning a late summer, or Fall wedding and are looking for an amazing florist, we still have some availability during those months–but, it’s definitely time to give us a call, set up your consultation, and get a down payment in to secure your spot. (Fall seems like a long time from now, and, it is; but, it goes fast when you’re planning a wedding.) Okay, and the next item on this part of the agenda–our Summer hours are changing, as they always do around this time. We are closed on Memorial Day and then, after that, our hours go to 8-5, Monday through Friday; and 9-4 on Saturday. We are, as always, closed on Sunday.
Now, onto the rest of the agenda…a few photo updates! Since we’re like pretty much the rest of the world, and definitely like the entire state of Minnesota–we were shocked, and saddened, when Prince passed away. Several of our employees are huge Prince fans and we wanted to do something, in our own simple way, to honor the Purple One–so, we decided to add a new arrangement to our permanent collection; we’re calling it Purple Reign. It doesn’t scream Prince–the emphasis is more on the color purple, with a little funk added on the vase. It’s subtle, quiet, and a beautiful reminder of the importance of those we love. It’s perfect for any desk at work, any bedside table–or, anywhere in between. Whether you choose to send this to the Prince fan in your life–or, to someone who simply loves the color purple, this richly hued arrangement will make your recipient feel loved every time they look at it. You can order it here–or, call us if you have specific requests regarding this arrangement.
Another note on the agenda…did you ever see the cool window painting on our sister store, Sweet River Candy’s window? It was done a few months ago and it still looks amazing today! (These are the guys you wanna talk to if you’re thinking about having a catered, candy buffet, by the way.)
And, just to make sure we finish this meeting out on the correct note–bringin’ it back from all professional sounding agenda stuff, and right back to who we really are at heart–did you catch our spring sign on our window!? It’s perfect. 🙂 (Also, next time you’re in town–make sure you take a look at our ‘spring chickens’. 😉
