Mother’s Day All Wrapped Up

 

Mother’s Day is Sunday, March 15th in the UK and Sunday, May 10th this year and you can never be to prepared once Valentines Day is over. How do you or your shop plan to make your Mother’s Day vases stand out? Here are some of Floral.today’s top Shrink Wrap Decorative Vase Sleeve picks for Mother’s Day from Florist Mercantile Company! Tell us what you think of our picks or what you would choose to use from the 250 Florist Mercantile Company, Shrink Wrap Decorative Vase Sleeve selection for Mother’s Day.

Our Top Mother’s Day Shrink Wrap Decorative Vase Sleeves!

 

We had fun with this collection as with a new generation of moms looking for something more fun and unique versus traditional we think floral.today picked out some great Shrink Wrap Decorative Vase Sleeves for you! From simple traditional lattice to fun cookie prints you can find almost everything you could ever want.

Top 10 Shrink Wrap Decorative Vase Sleeves

Top 10 Mother’s Day Shrink Wrap Decorative Vase Sleeves

We found you our Top 10 Shrink Wrap Decorative Vase Sleeves for mother’s day and hope you are able to find something you like. Floral.today went through all the mom’s close to us and found a vase sleeve for each individual taste and personality. One of the major points floral.today also focused on is the use after the holiday. It never hurts to have a holiday specific vase sleeve but those that can carry into the rest of the year are what we think makes the difference in the success of a sleeve.

Modern Design in Pop Art Cats Sleeve

Modern Design in Pop Art Cats FMC 3046 Product Used: Free Spirit Roses, Small Monstera Leaves, Steel Grass, Bright Green Dyed Moss, Oasis Foam

 

Pop Art Cats FMC 3046

Pop Art Cats FMC 3046

Everybody at Floral.today is absolutely in love with Pop Art Cats. As Garrett’s mom now has Toby, her ‘Pet Child’, since his siblings and him have moved out we went straight to this one. This is for the mom that is of a new generation, she is all about the fun and quirky or an animal lover. The great thing about this sleeve is it’s versatility with color, season, or design. What do you think of the Pop Art Cats Sleeve?

Fun Circles FMC 3019

Fun Circles FMC 3019

The Fun Circles sleeve made it into the top ten due to it’s versatility again. With the pastel colors but interesting design this sleeve can be used for traditional everyday, multiple holidays, and multiple personalities. Floral.today see this as a quite, traditional mom that enjoys a slightly unique design but still traditional colors so it isn’t to crazy or overwhelming.

Camo Pink FMC 3012

Camo Pink FMC 3012

To be completely honest most of us here at floral.today were like hmmmm when first had seen this vase sleeve and then with less than five seconds of discussing it we went straight to Garrett’s sister Kayla and multiple of our floral designers in the industry that love hunting and the sort. Kayla has been in the military and runs a top of the line tactical arms company and as a new mom we instantly new she would love this. The second person we thought of was one of our Floral.today aunts that will be having this pink camo placed throughout her wedding.  With the large variety of vases, the Camo Pink sleeve shows you can find about anything for your area or your type of consumers.

What is your favorite sleeve right now?

Carol - "Wood and naturals, those are the ones to me that say class and you can do a nice traditional in them with out them going out of style."

Kelly - "Right now I'm savoring the glitzy, glittery solids, you can do pretty much any design in them."

For a traditional Mother’s Day sleeve we really enjoy the cookie print Best Mom Ever sleeve. The quality of the image makes you want to touch the cookies. Floral.today likes this sleeve because you can design traditional and non-traditional Mother’s Day very easily. Being that the words are done in cookies makes this sleeve unique and different than anything available for upselling. What would you design in the Best Mom Ever vase sleeve?

What have been your favorite vase sleeve so far from the Florist Mercantile Company?  With how quickly you can apply the Shrink Wrap Decorative Vase Sleeves and the quality of the sleeves this is hands down the best new thing to hit the market for your shop to try out today.

How to Apply a Shrink Wrap Decorative Vase Sleeve

The owners of Florist Mercantile Company and minds behind the Shrink Wrap Decorative Vase Sleeve are Joe Colvin and Daniel Hastings of Houston, TX. After spending 24+ years developing products for the Floral and Home and Garden Industries, Joe and Daniel were sick of the headaches and started their quest to create their own product.

One the quest of creating their own products they focused on some keys aspects to their products and that was as American-Made as possible, something specifically for the floral industry and above all a high quality product to meet the standards of what florist want. With this criteria the Shrink Wrap Decorative Vase Sleeve has been born after many long hours and we bet many different designs.

Florist Mercantile Company

Both Joe and Daniel have put much on the line to bring you a good quality product. With their personal finances and life tied to this product they have made sure to create you, the floral designer, a product you will want and at a quality and price that you are able to appreciate and sell easily. We have only spoken with Joe multiple time but they go out of their way to make sure their customer service is perfect and you are satisfied.

When Floral.today asked John of JR's Florist and Greenhouse out of Ball, LA 
"Could give us a short comment on the company or product" 
and 
"Which sleeve was your favorite so far"

All he had to say was,
"Fantastic! Wonderful!"
"I don't have a favorite, all of the containers are wonderful and have a purpose."

Floral.today started off a little apprehensive with the Shrink Wrap Decorative Vase Sleeves when Joe first approached us with them but as this product has been created to entice many different types of personality and taste we and found numerous wraps that we instantly knew we had to have.

Floral.today's Top Valentine's Day Picks

Valentine's Day Wraps

Some of Floral.today’s favorite Valentine’s Day Vase Wraps.

Valentine's Day Vase Wrap 'LOVE' FMC 3032

One of Floral.today’s top Valentine’s Day Vase Wrap ‘LOVE’ FMC 3032. The layered hearts give us a fluffy/pillowy feel.

Valentine's Day Vase Wrap Cluster Hearts FMC 3118

One of Floral.today’s top Valentine’s Day Vase Wrap Cluster Hearts FMC 3118. Each heart gives of a nice metallic sheen on a solid white background.

Of the whole Valentine’s Day collection we only dismissed two out of them all due to simple things such as font choice or for being to busy and in our opinion taking to much away from the overall arrangement. That said you can find so many out of the collection that our personal two we didn’t prefer shouldn’t affect the over all collection or your personal choices.

As of right now the wraps can be purchased in packs but the great thing is you can order them mixed or as a pack of one type. Here is the break down of the pricing.

Trying Out November!

What fun we have had trying out some new products and techniques in November. We hope you enjoy this #FloralFriday’s post and always make sure to share with us what you’re up to! Lets dive right into what we tried and loved, and how it all worked out for us.

First up we have our hand bouquet to be held cupped in the hand with a ring for extra comfort and security. With the Emerald Lion Brand Yarn and the Silver 12 Gauge OASIS Aluminum Wire are so white that the bouquet stays strong but very light so even after the addition of the flowers the bouquet stays moderately light. We then have the cranberries threaded on black basic carpeting thread that is thin but very strong so the threads hang and twist without distorting the shape like some wires can do. The threading was finished off with Silver OASIS Beaded Wire and a simple hourglass for interest and to finish off the ends. Then to round the bouquet off we add in some dried Carthamus Safflower and a few McKenny Orange Mokara Orchids for color and interest. Combining the different shades of red and red orange along with dry and fresh creates an interesting visual and physical texture. What would you change or do to make the bouquet your own?
 
Hand Bouquet Complete 1 Hand Bouquet Complete 2 Hand Bouquet Complete 3 Hand Bouquet Complete 4 Hand Bouquet Complete 5 Hand Bouquet Complete 6 
This is followed up by our free form linear design used with our dried out and used products. The use of the Rose Gold 241 Design Master paint on the dried flax and ilex branches made for a great combination of fall color and interest. The groupings of the Eufloria Flowers “Fiesta Sunset” Garden Roses is giving little bursts of color and color blocking up through the design while the Rose Gold Flax gives you abstract lines and depth through the branches. The whole design is securely designed into a Cattail Stem Grouping bound with Natural OASIS Bind Wire to create a unique textural base that uses a product that was collecting dust. The whole design is supported by the Cattail Stem Groupings and a OASIS MEGA Wire spiral under the base. What would you do to change the look or style? 
 
Abstract Complete 1Abstract CompleteAbstract Complete 2Abstract Base
 
The day is rapped up with the simple but impactful mounted orchid plant! The live orchid plant we went with is the Odontocidium Everglades Elegance “Nancy Lee” with it’s variegated petals, multiple blooms and an abundance of new stems growing. We mounted our Midollino Spiral first but weaving the ends through our metal structure then added our orchid plant into the spiral securing both with 3 bind points, bound with Natural OASIS Bind Wire. To add a bit of color to the leaves we added dried Ilex Branches Tips dusted with Rose Gold 241 Design Master paint and then added 2 smaller branch tips to the roots to elongate the the root system. Tons of texture, interest and a unique way to present an orchid plant. We use water spray bottles to keep the orchid hydrated and the mounting helps us with our personal over watering issues. How do you like to present your orchids to an elevated level? Show us your elevated orchids and how you provide your customer unique plant options

Want, Love, Try in November

It’s all about the trying and loving in November as we try out new product combinations and inspirations that we are finding all around the industry. Here are some of the fun things we are trying out to help elevate our designs and help us stay on top of our creative game. Make sure to always keep floral.today up as we love to be inspired!

 
First up we are playing with yarn and wire to create interesting visual texture and patterns. The first time had seen someone Knit/Crochet along with floral design was at the American Institute of Floral Design 2013 Symposium Show, “HAND|craft – Design to Distinguish Yourself” presented by Jim Dempsey AIFD, CFD, when the whole show was produced in all hand crafted ways to show the increased visual value and professional skill.
We love to knit here at floral.today so why not take something we like to relax to and enhance our designs with it! You can see the beginning of our hand bouquet with emerald Lion Brand Yarn and Silver Smithers Oasis 12 gage Aluminum Wire. The wire ring form was the start and then we moved to going back and forth with the yarn to create and interesting pattern and visual texture. The yarn makes the bouquet super easy to glue into and the wire can be formed into any shape to create many different types of styles and forms. We will have the finished design in our #FloralFriday post for you to enjoy.

We are also having some fun with dried flax, cattails and branches for November. To be honest we had bought to many flax and it dried out but as we payed for it why throw it out. In the floral industry there is a great amount of waste, were not saying save all your trash but if it dries well or could be utilized in a good way in the future why not make some money from it.
We have dusted our branches with Design Master Rose Gold 241 paint and have done a full cover on our flax with the Design Master Rose Gold 241 paint. We are loving the pillar shapes we have been seeing all over the place, so we will be showing you the completed design on #FloralFriday as we try out creating a pillar design with our lost or forgotten product.

Finally we are trying out our Midollino Spiral from last weeks video to enhance a plant to be gifted. As a great way to add visual value and to enhance the plant to make it unique and one of a kind, it’s the perfect gift to come from floral.today. You can check out the video of the adventure that is Garrett trying to make the Midollino Spiral and then see the finished product of #FloralFriday!

Want, Love, Try in October

Happy Monday floral.today viewers! Today I am showing you some industry products, techniques and designs I want to try, I just want or I’m utterly in love with at the moment. At the end of the post, tell us about the industry products, techniques or designs that have you wanting, loving and trying.

Let's start it off with my Wants!

Illinois WIllow Wreath

Illinois Willows - Fresh Rose Hip Wreath

I love all of their willow varieties, so why wouldn't I want a hand crafted Fresh Rose Hip Wreath. Kent Miles of Illinois Willows runs an amazing farm and can help you with almost every kind of willow available and really unique creations such as this and much more. Make sure to contact Kent at Illinois Willow for all his pricing to get yourself one of a kind wreaths and products.
Accent Decor Wool Fabric

Photo property of Accent Decor

 
Accent Decor - Wool Fabric 15cm X 16.5ft

I want to get my hands on the teal, light blue, and grey so bad. As a product I have experienced before, I have found the texture and uniqueness of this product can create something fun and whimsical to high end, high style very easily. I do prefer the wider 15cm as I can manipulate it to my liking but the smaller sizes are also great. With a great variety of color everybody can find at least one color of the wool fabric that can make them happy. Accent Decor makes this all easy to order online or you can contact them easily by phone.
Anco Lavender Mist Orchid

Photo property of Anco-pure-Vanda


Anco-pure-Vanda - Kanchana Lavender Mist

So clean and so refreshing, I love everything about Kanchana Lavender Mist. I find the small lavender square webbing to be very interesting on the bright white. After seeing the Sunanda Magic Yellow at Baudouin Roelant's show at the 2014 AIFD Symposium, I fell in love with the wonderful variety that Anco-pure-Vanda offers from vibrant oranges to deep blues, and the Kanchana Lavender Mist is the top of the list of what I want to design with.
Second up are some things I Love!

Floral Trends Forecast - Lapis Luxury

How can you not love the power of deep blue lapis and the elegance of white all combined to create this amazing trend Lapis Luxury. What I find the most interesting and love the most about Lapis Luxury is that it's all about simple design with sophisticated details. Go check out all four of the this year's floral trends from the 2015 Floral Trends Forecast and tell us what you think of them.

Flower Trends Forecast - Modern Garden

Texture, texture, texture and just a little more on the side. The combination of the soft palette with a mixture of texture creates that feeling of soft romance on a wonderful spring evening. Though there is a wide combination of containers here, the floral designs take and hold your attention. The last thing I love is the airiness of the clematis and the leaf work taking the design from just another mass of beautiful textures and flowers to a interesting floral creation. All the 2015 Flower Trends Forecast designs where created and designed by Bill Schaffer and Kristine Kratt of SCHAFFER DESIGNS‬ of Philadelphia, PA, USA, so make sure to check out them and the rest of the floral trends.

  McQueens Florist - Youtube Videos. To be taken on a floral adventure is always the most fun to some of us and the McQueens Florist youtube channel, mcqueensflowers, does just that. The videos are usually under 3 minutes and are generally something interesting the McQueen team is up to. From Mulberry fashion show decor to student experience videos, I fall in love with the high quality work, product and teamwork that they show. Go fall in love and be inspired by McQueens Florist as I did.
To round it all out are what I want to try!


Clean Foam

Floral Soil Solutions - Floral Soil

The very first thing I'm most interested to get my hands on and try out is the new toxic free, 100% plant based Floral Soil. Floral.today is all about new and innovated floral products and Floral Soil is oozing with everything floral.today loves. Once we get our claws on this awesome product we will be doing a review video and then a blog designing with it. Keep your eyes peeled and get ready to see how the floral industry responds to this new age product. Check out Floral Soil and tell us what you think about it.


 DESIGN358 - Mechanics & Techniques with Hitomi. Gilliam: MIDOLLINO SPIRAL Coming in the following weeks I will be trying out the Midollino Spiral and taking you on the ride. When you see a Midollino Spiral no matter what designer has designed with it, your mind will always go straight to the wonderful Hitomi Gilliam AIFD. With the versatility of the Midollino Spiral it's a great way to elevate any simple design or planter to a high style and higher selling creation. Check out this how-to video and then show us how you did with your own Midollino Spiral.

What are some of your wants, loves and tries for the month of October? I have a great line up coming in the next few weeks from renowned event designers to one of the most well known designers in the world! Stay tuned and keep floral.today in the loop of all your happenings in the industry.
