Oh my goodness who doesn't like a big hydrangea plant? They add colour and life to any home, balcony, terrace or garden in a flash. Hydrangeas are one of our favourite plants at Westmount Florist. This week we are hyped about hydrangeas!
When summer ends and fall begins the staff at Westmount Florist look forward to a certain flower, the sunflower! They are so versatile and look awesome in almost any autumn inspired bouquet or arrangement. This week, we are sweet on sunflowers!
At Westmount Florist we love informing our customers about popular flowers and interesting plants. Every once and a while we will have a blog dedicated to a specific flower or plant. This week we are loving the lily!
Cut the stems!...and did I mention cut the stems?!
Every time a client comes in to purchase a single stem or a bouquet of cut loose flowers our team reminds them to cut the stems before placing them in water. More times than not the client says, “oh can you cut them for me”? or “I’m going right home in 2 minutes” ! The sad part about this is that if flowers are not re-cut they will not survive more than a day, if a day at all!
When selecting your flowers, do you feel overwhelmed? Confused? Can’t seem to get the colours right? Well, we’re here to help! There’s more to making a bouquet than just throwing flowers together. Sometimes it is just that easy, but usually some sort of colour scheme is the first step to a gorgeous bouquet. Here are some examples that can help you get started.
