Floral Trends for Your Next Event

When it comes to your wedding reception, birthday party or next big event, there is no limit to the amount of flowers you can incorporate into your decorations. At Rosemary Duff, we are absolutely loving the trends in floral arrangements this year. Step outside the box and try one of these amazing decor ideas.

Backdrops

Photo booths are the perfect way to capture moments at your wedding or birthday party. With the right props you’ll have pictures to hold on for a lifetime. Make it even more unique with a custom floral backdrop! We love a classic backdrop that is filled with real florals, but we’re also fans of delicate flower strands. You can make it stand out even more with alternating strands of fairy lights.

 

Ring Wreaths

We love ring wreaths with floral details because they are true works of art. Affixing live flowers to a section of the wreath is such a simple design that goes a long way. The best part is that it’s a reusable art piece that can either be used at another party or hung in your home on display.

 

 

Centerpieces

An instant classic, centerpieces will never go out of style. We like to bring these into more parties than wedding receptions, though! You can play with vases and flower colors to keep the arrangements on theme. Let us know what you’re celebrating and we’ll do our best to bring your vision to life!

Garland

One of the more intricate decorations on our list is floral garland. By combining greenery and lush flowers, garland instantly adds an elegant touch wherever you need it. You can keep it simple and just include flower heads, or ask for full leaves and extra flowers for a more dramatic feel. You can even attach lettering to celebrate a birthday or gender reveal to add a personal touch.

 

If you have a vision for floral decorations, let us know when you contact us! We would love to work with you on creating custom arrangement and floral elements.

February Holidays to Buy Flowers For

February is often thought of hand-in-hand with Valentine’s Day, but there are so many other holidays to celebrate. From friends to your mail carrier, February is a month-long celebration where you can give flowers to all those you’re thankful for.

February 4 – Thank a Mail Carrier Day
It’s easy to forget how important our mail carriers are because we don’t see them every day, but we always know they’re going to deliver what’s most important. Share the love with them and surprise them with an arrangement custom made for their special day. We recommend choosing something on the smaller size so it’s easy to carry throughout their day.

February 7 – Send a Card to a Friend Day
This day is made for long distance friendships, and so are our flowers! We can help you celebrate your friends from afar. Send them their favorite flowers with a thoughtful card on this day!

February 11 – Make a Friend Day
There is no time like the present to make a new friend. Make a good impression on a neighbor or new coworker and share the gift of a custom flower arrangement. Getting closer to this person will build a strong relationship and maybe a friend for life!

February 14 – Valentine’s Day
Our favorite day of the year because it’s full of love and super busy in the shop! Flowers are a classic gift for Valentine’s Day because they instantly fill you with warmth and other good feelings. Share the love and send someone a custom Valentine arrangement. See our available arrangements here.

February 15 – Singles Awareness Day
This day started as a joke to combat Valentine’s Day, but we love the idea of celebrating your single friends, or yourself! Treat yourself to a custom arrangement, because you deserve it!

February 22 – National California Day
What better state to celebrate than our home state, California. We love our community so much because it has helped us feel so welcomed through the years. Residents can celebrate this day with friends, family and neighbors. Share locally styled arrangements with your loved ones in the Golden State.

There are so many reasons to spend time with loved ones this month. Show that love with custom flower arrangements from Rosemary Duff! We offer online ordering and delivery!

How We Use the 2019 Pantone Color of the Year

Every year we look forward to a new year because that is when Pantone announces its official color of the year. This year they chose the very bright Living Coral. This is the perfect pinky-orange color that we’ll be seeing a lot of in 2019. We’re so excited to use it in wedding bouquets, floral arrangements and décor all year long!

Pantone describes Living Coral as “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.” We couldn’t agree more. This unique shade is so fun and easy to bring into your home. Here’s how we’re using it in the shop right now.

Six Roses

A twist on the classic, this six rose arrangement incorporates different color roses. Most importantly, we incorporate coral roses to go along with the color of the year. This makes the arrangement a little more playful, perfect for friends!

Colorful!

Bright and fun, this gerbera arrangement doesn’t disappoint! We love this arrangement for many reasons, but one of the best things about this one is that it’s perfect for so many occasions. This is going to be a hit at all 2019 birthdays and parties.

Modern Six

Contemporary, stylish and coral! One of our modern arrangements incorporates all coral to perfectly encapsulate the color of the year. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, this is the perfect gift for your special someone.

Celebrate a new year, and a new color, with Rosemary Duff Florist in Escondido. We offer convenient, online ordering for all of our arrangements, plus same day local delivery. Visit us online to customize your flowers today!

January Holidays to Celebrate with Flowers

2019 is finally here! We’re so excited to start a new year, and we’re especially excited to get started on all of our resolutions. If your resolution includes spreading the love, or showing more kindness in your day to day life, we’re here to help! Start this month by sending flowers to loved ones near and far, for one of the many national holidays happening this month.

Hugging Day – January 21st

Hugging day is best celebrated in person, but that’s not always the case. For friends and family far away, send a warm, inviting arrangement to their home or office. We suggest something overflowing, like our best selling Blush Life. Whether you want to send a flower hug just for fun, or to someone who needs a little extra love, let Rosemary Duff do the talking.

Compliment Day – January 24th
Is there anything better than an unexpected compliment? At the grocery store or in the office, a small token of appreciation goes a long way. While you don’t need to wait for National Compliment Day to say something kind, let this day serve as a reason to go above and beyond what you normally do. Giving a coworker or neighbor a custom arrangement can go a long way! We love our small, but stunning Fireworks arrangement for Compliment Day.  

Spouses Day – January 26th
A special day to celebrate your soulmate, National Spouses Day is the perfect time to say thank you for all that your partner does for you. Say I love you with a custom arrangement or bouquet designed and delivered by our talented florists. You can’t go wrong with a traditional rose bouquet, or try something unique like our extravagant arrangement, appropriately titled, Hopelessly Devoted to You. Let your favorite person know just how special they are on the 26th!

All of these fun holidays are right around the corner, and they’re super easy to celebrate with our help. Simply customize your arrangement and order it online. We’ll take care of the rest. If you have any questions for our team, feel free to reach out at 760-745-1191.

Decorate Your Home with Flowers for New Years

If you’re hosting a New Year’s party, you’ll want to prepare your house for the crowd and the festivities. Decorating your home to perfection is easier than ever when you stop by Rosemary Duff. We have plenty of holiday decoration options to choose from, including a wide assortment of live florals that will impress all your guests.

Garland
There is nothing prettier and more stunning than draping flowers all over. One of the easiest ways to do that is with garland. Whether wrapped around the staircase, draped over the counter tops in the kitchen or the seating area at the party. This is a great way to get the most florals in your space that can fit anywhere you need them.

Centerpieces
One of the most popular ways to bring live flowers into your home over the holidays is a classic centerpiece. These elaborate arrangements come in all shapes, sizes and colors to accommodate your space and style. We can create custom orders, and you can also choose from our signature New Year’s arrangements.

Add one of our centerpieces to the following areas in your home:
– Dessert or appetizer table
– Entry way
– Entertainment center

Flower Petal Drop
One of the most creative ways to use flowers is by making your own ball drop. We love the idea of celebrating the stroke of midnight with a ball drop of flowers and flower petals. You can combine with balloons or confetti to make a lasting impact. Can you say “wow factor”!

Before the ball drops, make sure you come in to see us at Rosemary Duff for all of your decorating needs. 2019 has never looked better. Contact us today to order your custom arrangements.

Styled Shoot: Lake Hodges Mountaintop Elopement

We don’t always get to do styled shoots, but when we do, we would prefer our florals to have a mountaintop backdrop! This view was seriously unbeatable and the amazing fact that this location is right in our backyard had us smiling from ear to ear after seeing the photos!

We love working with local vendors and are happy our florals could dazzle this mountaintop elopment shoot. Thanks to Abby Rez Photography for all of the photos!
