Summer Wedding Bouquet Trend - Bright Color

Summer bridal bouquets are all about bright splashes of color. This doesn't mean that all of the flowers need to be in the warm color pallete. Such as red, orange, and hot pink. Not at all. Bright colors include lime greens, purples, and sky blues.

What we see are pairings of colors that nearly scream with delight. Hot pinks paired with burning bright orange. Or lime green next to canary yellow. Intense? Yes! Color color color.

DIY Wedding Flowers - How To Get Buckets of Bulk Wedding Flowers For The Least Amount Of Money - The Flower Shoppe

For the Do-It-Yourself bride in the Twin Cities area, we offer wholesale flowers.

Here's our all time most popular option for brides seeking to get the most flowers for the least amount of money.

This option isn't for everyone as you have to be open to a sort of "grab-bag" approach to the flowers.

How It Works: 
A bride comes to us, tells us her colors, budgets, and the day she is picking up the flowers. Then leaves the details up to us. What we do is contact our growers and get the best prices on flowers in those colors. As we don't care so much about the type of flower, but mainly the color, we are able to get buckets full of flowers for your wedding at great prices. The bride comes in on the selected pick-up day and usually brings a large vehicle to fit all the buckets into to transport to her wedding event location where she and her girlfriends will be using the flowers to decorate with.

We've been in business for over 40 years and this by far remains the…

How Much Do Orchid Stems Cost Wholesale? - The Flower Shoppe in Blaine

We were asked via email this morning how much it would cost for 50 stems of orchids. A mother wanted to make Orchid Leis for a graduation party. (Which we think is a great idea!)

The thing is with Orchids, they are expensive here in our part of the country. Not so expensive in California and Hawaii as they are so profuse there.

Regular retail of a single stem of a Dendrobium Orchid is around $7 per stem. Wholesale rates can get the rate to go down a couple dollars or so, depending on how many one orders. The more you order, the more the price per stem goes down.

It all comes down to what your budget is for the project and how many leis you'd want to make.

Wholesale is a great way to get a lot of flowers. Though it isn't for everyone. At our Flower Shoppe, we require a minimum order of $150 of wholesale merchandise to even get the wholesale rate.

Hopefully this isn't too confusing. Pricing on wholesale items fluctuates too from week to week. The reason for this is that we …

Hello Mandy,

A very rough ball-park figure would be around $700 - $1,000 from just eye balling the list of flowers. This number could be lower or higher, give or take a couple hundred dollars depending on the season. 

We aren't able to give out exact quotes that far in advance though because unlike most flower shops, we order our flowers direct from the grower. The prices fluctuate from week to week and depending on which flow…

How Ordering Wholesale Flowers Works - A Recent Email Response

Yes, you can order flowers for a pick-up date at our shop location.

We need to know your budget and an idea of the types of flowers you are thinking of getting.

For our wholesale flowers we don't have a pricing guide because we source our flowers direct from the growers and the prices fluctuate weekly and as we are a small family owned shop, we don't have the man-power to do a weekly price guide.
As your event is within 30 days we should be able to get a good idea of the cost from our growers.
Once you let me know your budget and an idea of what types of flowers you are thinking, we'll be able to eyeball it and tell you right away if your budget is on track, talk to our growers, and even make some suggestions if something is out of season and such.

Thanks,

Wedding Florist - The Flower Shoppe

We've been in business for over 40 years, during that time we've provided flowers for numerous weddings. We love it, as it's such a milestone in a person's life. We are honored to be a little part of making it special and beautiful.

Here's what we tell our brides they need in order to get the best wedding flowers:

1. Bridesmaid dresses. 
Without these chosen, it's nearly pointless to try and figure out your flowers as color becomes a central point with the flowers. So first focus on your dresses, then your flowers.

2. Shape Ideas
By this we mean to do some looking around in magazines and online. What shape/style bouquets do you like. What don't you like? Clip out cutting and print off pictures. This will give us a wonderful point of reference while working with you on your bridal bouquets and reception flowers. 

3. Budget
While it may seem smart to not disclose how much money you want to spend on flowers until after you get a quote... it isn't. Florists…

Funeral Flowers Honoring the Person's Personality

We know a funeral is such an important part of honoring one's life, we are so pleased to be allowed into this part of one's life.

We had a family come to us with a drum, asking us to work it into the casket flowers for their son's funeral. This is a photo of the result. We were happy with it and the family smiled when they saw it.

We very much enjoy doing custom flower work, especially for funerals when the work has so much meaning behind it.

"I can't thank you enough for the beautiful flower arrangements you made for my mom's funeral. Your kindness and your generosity will always be remembered. I had passed your flower shop for years without ever knowing you were there. I live off 99th and Central and will be coming to your shop for all my floral needs. I have also told all my family and friends about your beautiful flowers. Thank you again."
-Anita M.

Unique Rose Type- Abracadarbra Rose - The Flower Shoppe Blaine

There's no doubt about it, our Abracadabra Rose is a show stopper! The dark red velvet petals are striped/speckled with bright yellow streaks. It's magical. Hence the name.

The size of the rose head is smaller, coming closer to a spray rose than a tea rose.

It looks wonderful mixed in with Red and Yellow rose bouquets. 

We use this variety of rose many times in men's boutonnieres and in wedding floral bouquets. Also, it makes very cool and unusual flower arrangements.
