Mixing It Up with Your Mixed Bunch

Mixed bunches are one of the most popular ways to give flowers because of their diverse array of multicolored blooms, colorful wrapping and ribbons, and their affordable price.  Matlack Florist always has a selection of assorted mixed bunches to easily pick up on a whim for that “just because” kind of gift.

Receiving a mixed bunch is always fun because you can decide how best to display it.  Here’s a few options you might not have considered before.

Mixing It Up

Of course flowers look lovely in a vase, but have you ever tried displaying them in other containers found around your home? A pitcher provides a sustainable water source for your mixed bunch while adding some flair, just like in our “Totally Tulips” arrangement available in the springtime.  Other interesting containers around your home could be a watering can, teapot, or a coffee can.  Whatever you use, it’ll be sure to become a conversation starter for visiting guests.

Spreading the Love

If you don’t own a large vase to place all the stems from your mixed bunch into, consider placing smaller vases all around your home.  This way, no matter where you’re walking around, the lovely aroma and style of flowers will bring a smile to your face.  Try dropping a few flowers from your bunch into a small vase in the bathroom, one of the most forgotten rooms in the house.  Or, take multiple containers, fill them with blooms, and connect them together with wire, grasses, or branches for a stunning table runner.

Right now, Matlack Florist is featuring July 4th mixed bunches of red, white, and blue.  Pick one up today and decide for yourself how best to display our beautiful blooms!

Graduation Day, Better with a Bouquet

By Christine W.

The beginning of June marks the extra special event of graduation in the lives of many young individuals. Whether it’s a Master’s degree or the end of a middle school era, at Matlack Florist, we love to celebrate milestones accordingly. Flowers are a great way to observe the commemorative event, and there are many different options to cheer on your graduate.

Presentation flowerpresentations are popular for graduates, and they can be done in countless different varieties.  One of our favorites ways to present graduation flowers is to arrange them in the graduate’s school colors with a matching bow, and the photos will look great with all of the coordinated colors.

Presentation bouquets come in all price ranges and have a great deal of customization options for color options. Come in and ask what we have in your graduate’s school colors.

If you’re looking for an all-in-one graduation present, consider our money corsage. They’re a fun way to incorporate a gift of money and  wear during the commencement, not to mention being the envy of all their fellow graduates.  The bills can be folded into shapes like origami and wired into the corsage so they can easilyIMG_3202 be taken out.  Additionally, the corsage can also be done in the graduate’s school colors with matching flowers.

This money corsage pictured on the left was made at Matlack Florist for a Lehigh University graduate in her school’s colors.

Decorating the graduation cap has been a long standing tradition amocapng graduates, and at Matlack Florist we have a trendy solution if you’re having trouble finding the perfect cap decoration.  Adorning the cap with a floral hair wreath is both modern and glamorous, and completely unique.  They can be attached to the cap easily and taken off, and can be made out of fresh blooms or silk flowers.

Congratulations to all of the 2016 graduates! At Matlack Florist we hope to continue celebrating with you all year long.
