Now through Mother's Day we are offering 10% off all kinds of wonderful gift ideas for Mom. Some of the gifts we have are sachets, gift baskets, gift bags, soaps, candles, natural gifts such as birdseed ornaments and decorative wood slices, hand-painted mason jars, potpourri and so much more. Our products are also available at Honeycomb Creative at 415 N. Monroe Street, Monroe, Mi - in Downtown Monroe. Love this store. They also have Fusion paint! We are planning on redoing our kitchen cupboards using that paint this spring. Our products are with Vintage Market Home in Downtown Wyandotte at 110 Sycamore Street, right next to Stroh's Ice Cream. They have a lovely display there of our products and I just recently resupplied them. See picture above. There are additional products on the shelf to the left as well as the table.
Floral Design News: We are running about 4-6 weeks processing time on our floral designs. Single Bouquets I may be able to get to before that time frame. However, larger wedding parties please allow minimum 4-6 weeks, with 8 weeks being the best time frame. I can occasionally accommodate a rush order, but it really does depend how many orders I have at the time.
Our Etsy shop floral design listings have been revamped. I have combined the floral designs listing to include all the matching boutonnieres, corsages, and bouquets on ONE listing for each type of bouquet design. This way customers don't have to go searching on the shop for the coordinating boutonnieres and such. I have also included bud vase arrangements for each listing. I recently supplied these for an order and they worked out Great! They are basically a downsized version of the bouquet made to fit an approximately 9-10 inch tall bud vase with a 1-to-1-1/2 inch opening. These dimensions can be tweaked if you have a bud vase outside these parameters. Just send a note with your dimensions. A small bouquet is usually good for a pint or Quart mason jar arrangement. A medium bouquet would be equal to a larger table arrangement and the large bouquet would be equal to an ex-large table arrangement. I have updated shipping also to also better accommodate ordering multiple items.
E-commerce: Our website e-commerce should be up and running soon. I know I have been promising, but we are getting close! I just need to add our floral design. This way you can come right to the website and order direct through us. We will be keeping our Etsy shop as well that way if you enjoy shopping on Etsy you can still have that experience. The benefit to the E-commmerce web is I am able to offer discounts or sales not available with Etsy due to the fact the E-commerce does not have a transaction fees associated with it that Etsy does.
Farm News: Michigan has been playing hide and seek with spring. We've had some great 60 and 70 degree weather days, but it's been inconsistent. Hubby and I are getting ready nonetheless. We are getting ready to retill the Monarch Waystation area and reseed as soon as our frost date has passed adding in some milkweed and some new perennial wildflower, bee balm and more. We also will be tilling a new areas to grow other flowers that we use in our floral designs. Hubby has acquired the lumber to make 6 large raised beds. We plan to use some of these to grow florals and some for veggies. In lavender news, the plants are starting to green up on the underside. I am just waiting for it consistently warm up in order to do a good spring pruning. On one of the warmer days they smelled wonderful. I could already get the lovely fragrance of lavender on the warm breeze. Looking forward to this season of lavender! All images © Lavender Rose Farms LLC
