Resolve to Spoil Yourself with Fresh Flowers

If new year’s resolutions are about self-improvement, then our Fresh Ten program is a great solution. Not only do fresh flowers lift your spirits and improve your emotional health (it’s proven!), they are an affordable luxury to treat yourself to at just $10 a bunch.

Each month, Cactus Flower features a seasonal wrapped bouquet for $10, which is usually over a 50% savings. For example, this month we are offering 10 gerbera daisies, which would usually cost $25. That's a lot of show for a little dough!

Not sure what to do with loose flowers when you get home? Our Fresh Ten Films - created in-house with our best designers - will walk you through designing them at home using containers and other items you probably already have in your kitchen cupboard. Here 's one of our most popular Fresh Ten Films featuring how to display 10 sunflowers.

This year, try keeping fresh flowers in your home at all times - even if it's a single rose from your own garden. See what it does for your emotional well being and creativity. We bet you'll see a difference!

2014 Wedding Trends: "Radiant Orchid" Named Color of the Year

Each year, the trend-setting folks at Pantone determine what colors and palettes will be hot in fashion and design for the upcoming seasons. This year they have announced the color of the year to be Radiant Orchid, a light purple hue with pink undertones.

We've done so many purple weddings in the last year, we internally called 2013 "the year of the purple bridal bouquet". Apparently our Cactus Flower brides are just cutting-edge and way ahead of their time!

Whether it's a succulent bouquet with purple blooms or an all-purple calla lily bouquet, it is clear that purple wedding bouquets are here to stay for a while. Here are just a few purple bouquets we've done here at The Studio at Cactus Flower in the last year.
