Celebrating 28 Years of St. Edward Floral!

Twenty-eight years. Who would have thought?

Cindy originally partnered with The Flower Barrel owner, Julie Jarecki, to get on her feet for the first eight months of the store being open. The store was initially located (if you have ever been to St. Edward) in the old Big Iron or Stock Reality & Auction building (210 Beaver Street). The building was open and had quite the unique characteristics, including an open stairway and upstairs. Her only regret is moving buildings now—but financially at the time it made more sense to purchase the building we are in now (315 Beaver Street), instead of rent.

#trending Decor

Our best selling home décor items come from these two categories, Industrial and Shabby Chic! Which one is your favorite?

#Industrial

This trend is on fire. The raw wood and deep-colored metal is everywhere. You wouldn’t think there would be much texture with the two main components being wood and metal, but boy do they provide an array to choose from. I believe this trend is so popular is because you can incorporate it in just about any home already. Whether you’re modern or country it’s easy to add a little something that says, “I’m a bit edgier, I’m spicing things up a bit in here!” And spice up you will.

Market Awaits…

With January right around the corner we are looking forward to market! I am so PUMPED to say it frankly. For those of you that are not familiar with what market is let me break it down for you:

Holiday Best Sellers & Gift Ideas

Many customers ask us, “What is everyone buying this year?” So, with Christmas coming I decided to give you a little glimpse into our best seller list this year! Hopefully it will give a little nudge to finish up your holiday shopping or add the perfect touch to your seasonal décor!

Mi Casa Su Casa – Dining Room, Christmas Edition

Welcome to my house (Flo Rida voice), I’m going to show you my couch…I know, that was bad. This week’s blog will be about my living room, complete with Christmas décor.

My Wedding

I was not your traditional wedding planning bride. My husband and I wanted two things: free beer and a live band at the reception—no worries, both were provided. Neither of us had interest in having a wedding party or inviting everyone to the actual wedding ceremony. We didn’t even take engagement pictures. We wanted a party.

Simple Decorating

Often times our customers come in and want to add a little pizzazz to what they already have. Many times it’s as simple as some greenery or a few orbs to replace the candles on your sconces. The same thing goes when decorating for seasons; add some garland around your candles or orbs, a festive bow and greenery on your lantern or vase. Don’t over think it!

Be the Ultimate Gift Giver

Who doesn’t love receiving a gift? I believe the best gifts are unplanned and a surprise to whomever is that amazing in your life and deserves it. The second best time to receive a gift is for a special occasion, birthday, anniversary, promotion, etc. Third best… whatever you get the point that when you get a gift, present or something on that line you feel like the bee’s knee’s.
