Wrapping up our holiday open house

Wow -- last night was ladies night and did we ever have FUN!

It was wonderful to have so many of our friends and customers in the shop helping us celebrate with wine, great food and fabulous shopping. I would love to post photos here, but we were way to busy to take any!

I do have photos of our "bouquet of the day" arrangements that we gave away all week, along with the names of the lucky winners. We will be drawing later today (Sat. Nov. 8th) for our grand prize of a year of flowers. Come on down before 4pm if you haven't signed up yet!

Tuesday's bouquet was a textural feast for the eyes!
Tana designed this bouquet of fall flowers including rover mums, oncidium orchids, wheat and dracena foliage. She also included permanent berries, grasses and leaves around a microbeaded permanent pumpkin. The recycled paper container is a great "green" option and is made right here in Oregon! Pat Yancey was the winner of this bouquet.

Wednesday's bouquet was a classic combination of red roses and cymbidium orchids designed by Michelle.
Details such as red-twig dogwood, dracaena foliage and aralia leaves provide the lines for this design. The design is based with red roses that bring out the red in the throats of the orchid blooms and pale green carnations that provide a splash of light to separate the leaves. Brock Smith, from California, was in Prineville visiting relatives and won this bouquet. Quite a gift to leave as a thank you!

Thursday's bouquet was a fun frolic in the snow designed by Carol.
Carol's fun designs featuring keepsake items are always customer favorites. This design showcases a fun jingle bell snowman ornament in "mid-jump" with his skis. Carol echoed the jewel tones of the snowman with lime green athos poms, blue belladonna delphinium and purple carnations. Glittery, frosted evergreens and berries finish this merry and bright Christmas bouquet, which was won by Diane Kenny.

Friday's bouquet was a beautiful fall arrangement in purples and greens by Lyn.
An ornamental kale is showcased in the center of this design. Lyn then repeated the various colors in the kale with the purple liatris, pink heather and chartreuse bells of ireland. The hot pink gerbera daisies provide a punch of color at the base. Proof that "fall colors" don't have to be orange and brown! Barbara Coffelt was the winner of this design.

Congratulations to all the daily bouquet winners. We'll soon be posting the winner of our year of flowers drawing as well!
