I swear it was just a few months ago when I wrote about Valentine’s 2014 at Stem Gallery. It just seems to sneak up on you. Sneak up is the perfect word, especially when you are answering the phone on Valentine’s Day at Stem Gallery and hear the panic in some of the customers voices. LITERALLY!!!!! First thing on the agenda for Valentine’s is a MUST. You must enter into Stem Gallery’s Valentine’s drawing by Thursday February 12th to win a dinner for two at “Dish”. This is how you do it. Order your Valentine’s flowers by the 12th and your order will automatically go into the drawing. The drawing will be held on Thursday the 12th after they close for the day and the winner will be contacted. Dinner and flowers, your bases will be covered and that special someone in your life will be beaming. Have you ordered your flowers yet? Avoid that panic the day of (see above mentioned) and place your order early in the week. I was in the shop today and found all kinds of great ideas for that special one in your life.
With flowers coming from South America, Japan, Hawaii, Holland and California they have a plethora of options. One dozen red roses will be $75.00 but if you want them to be extra special they are offering to put them in a keepsake crystal vase for $125.00, half dozen red roses $49.95, Designers Choice combination of colored roses $65.00. Their roses are flown in from South America, where they grow them with sturdy stems and striking heads of color. If your special one likes all kinds of flowers let the designers mix it up for you. Tell us their favorite flowers and we will have them ” puuuuurrrrrrrin” when you walk in the door. (Need I say more)????? For my part of Valentine’s Day, I will be sending my Mom one of the many plants. Gosh, the orchids from California are INCREDIBLE but it is hard to make a choice as I fell in love with the antherium and the azalea tree today. I thought the antherium plants last year were FAB, but this year they are stellar. Either way, whatever plant I choose, I am guaranteed that my Mom will have weeks of blooms to enjoy and will continue to, as the year goes by. ( I just decided, I’m going with the orchid plant and calling my order in on Monday). Exotic blossoms from Hawaii, Birds of Paradise, King Protea, and antherium. Who said God doesn’t have a sense of humor? I wonder if he had the designers of the world in mind when he created them?
This is crazy. I left Stem Gallery at 1:30 this afternoon, I talked to Kurt at 3:30 and all the boxes of candy pictured on the left with the red ribbon sold out. Here I was, excited to tell you about them, but I guess it is a case of “you snooze you loose”. Who knew????? Conrad wanted to make sure that I mentioned the terrariums I’m glad he did, as I almost missed them. I happy that people are starting to enjoy terrariums again. I remember when I was younger, how they were the rage. I always thought they were like having a small jungle in a vase. A terrarium would be perfect for that special guys desk in the office along with the desk set pictured below.
I like boxes of all kinds and my friends know it. I’m hoping Kurtis takes the hint, One of these heart boxes would be great to add to my collection.
There’s just so much to see, you need to go in asap and order your flowers or pick up that special gift item for that special one in your life. Go pay a visit and let Stem Gallery help you make your Valentine’s Day that special day.
