Bold holiday reds

Tis the season for beautiful, bold reds. With the Christmas holiday quickly approaching, gone are the fall color palettes. Lately, we’ve been working on lots of holiday centerpieces utilizing traditional holiday greens, mixed with interesting accents and big bold pops of the color red. Ilex berries, red hypericum, red Piano garden roses, Freedom roses, and red huck are used in these mixes. Show below are different size holiday arrangements. From top to bottom: long and low centerpiece,  large table centerpiece, small wood box centerpiece, and a large, tall buffet arrangement. Call or drop by either Sammy’s location and we can help you create your very own special holiday arrangement.

In memoriam: floral tributes

Floral tributes are created to honor a loved one in condolence, and for memorials and funerals. Often sympathy arrangements are arranged in soft, soothing colors, with the most chosen palette being whites and greens. In tribute, colors often connect to the season, or have meaning to the person for whom the flowers are created. The two tall memorial arrangements and coordinating standing floral spray shown above incorporate a soft pastel color palette in white, pale yellow, and light blues.
