FATHER'S DAY is Sunday, June 21st!


What does he want?  Well, most dads are happy with a TV remote in one hand and a sandwich or a cold brew in the other. . .so why is he so hard to shop for?  Why don't we make it a little easier for you?

*Succulents are very popular, and we're seeing them everywhere from gardens to bridal bouquets and everything in between.  Best of all, succulents are low maintenance and easy care, so even if he's got the opposite of a green thumb, Dad will be thrilled to have this handsome dish garden on his desk!  

*Keep dad healthy by sending him a fruit basket.

*Or, if he's a snack-a-holic, you can't go wrong with allowing us to make a gift basket custom-created for your own Pops.  Let us know if he's got a sweet tooth, is a connoisseur of chocolate, or if he likes salty-snacky-crunchy treats.  (Prices range from $50- $200, depending upon content and size desired.  Please place all custom gift basket orders no later than Thursday, June 18th by calling us at 480-948-1130.)

*Send him flowers!  Most guys express surprise and appreciation when we deliver a beautiful bouquet.  Some suggestions?  Our Bonfire is something Dad will surely appreciate with its tropical flowers in bold orange hues.  Or send a gift inside a gift: Our date night dozen includes a dozen roses arranged in a vase AND a pair of movie passes to any Harkin's theater in the metro Phoenix area.  That way, he can go see one of summer's hot movies like Mad Max: Hot Fury, or San Andreas or even Ted 2 (if his tastes run to that sort of humor...)

So whether you send flowers, a fruit basket, a snack basket or a plant to your dad on Father's Day, he'll be pleasantly surprised.

Kati + Alex

In April we had the great honor to be a part of an amazing wedding celebration for Kati & Alex McPherson, dear friends of the Cactus Flower family.

The gorgeous bride, being an incredibly talented interior designer, had every single detail of the wedding ceremony and reception perfected. Our designers worked with Kati and family to make sure we were bringing her dream and visions to life with the floral designs. Our personal favorite was Kati’s bouquet, which included a collection of family brooches. Just one example of Kati’s attention to detail!

Below is a preview from Katrina Wallace Photographers, who captured the true essence of a day that was filled with so much happiness and love.

Congrats to Kati & Alex and thank you for allowing us to be a part of your very special day.
