Rainbow Roses Are Back!

Last Friday The Supreme Court of The United States of America ruled that all people whom wish to marry will be able to do so in all fifty states, even if the person they wish to marry shares the same gender as themselves.  This was huge news and a lot of our customers came into the store to purchase flowers and gifts for loved ones to celebrate. In fact, we had one customer come in and buy a huge bouquet to propose to her partner of the last 20 years.
(Our lovely customer getting ready to propose, BTW she said yes!) 

We are delighted to see so many people celebrating their love.  In honor of that we made a special order and got a fresh shipment of Rainbow Roses in stock today!  We will only have them in stock for a limited time so make sure to call or stop in ASAP!  These beautiful stems are 4.99 a stem, $49.99 a dozen , and $59.99 for a dozen vased.

We look forward to planning a lot more weddings this coming year. Remember Blumz is a one stop wedding shop that handles everything from tuxedo rental, invitations, tenting, lighting, officiant services, and of course the flowers!  We love everything about weddings, so the idea of more weddings is the best news we have ever heard!  Wedding season is truly here!

Order a Gift Basket and Have it Sent to Dad this Father's Day

Every year on Mother's Day woman drop hints to get their partners to send them a big bouquet of flowers.  If their partner remembers to send the flowers to them at work or before the holiday, it is even more special!  Getting a gift at work is one of the best feelings in the world, there is nothing like publicly declaring your love and admiration to make someone feel extra special.

In Bloom: Peonies

Earth laughs in flowers. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Peonies, perfect little spheres that break open and peel back to reveal layer after layer of fragrance and beauty.  They are by far one of the most beautiful flowers around, but they are not something that you will find at your average florist.

A fresh bundle of peonies will not only brighten up the day, it will also brighten up your house and make it smell quite dreamy.  Flowers are one of the cheapest ways to give your living space a face-lift.  
If your craving something beautiful, stop into Blumz by JRDesigns this week and pick up some peonies.  We have them on special, a stem is only $4.99 and 5 stems are only $19.99. We have a limited supply in stock and once they are gone, they are gone.  Blumz has two convenient Metro Detroit locations for you to visit, Ferdndale

Weekly Rose Feature: The Rainbow Rose in Stock this Week!

June is National Rose Month and each week of the month we are featuring a different rose that we wouldn't normally have in stock. This week blumz is excited to announce that we will be carrying the extremely beautiful Rainbow Rose.

The Rainbow rose is one of the most unique roses around. It is a white rose that is steam dyed to include all of the colors of the rainbow.  This means the stem of the rose is split at the bottom, put into multiple different dyes and left to sit for a few days until it absorbs the color.  The process is time consuming and difficult , which means rainbow roses tend to be pricier than most roses, which is why we do not regularly stock them.

But, we received an order of Rainbow roses today and we will have them until they sell out. We also made sure to get a deal so that we could pass on the savings and have them in stock at a reasonable price. Each rose will only be 4.99 a stem, 49.99 a dozen and 79.99 for a dozen in a vase.

Rainbow roses are prefect for the rose lover who wants to try something different. They are  great way to celebrate National Pride month this June.

We will be carrying a limited supply and once they are gone, they are gone, so make sure to stop in or place your order today!

Weekly Rose Feature: The Clown Rose

3 Clown.JPG
Today is the official kickoff of National Rose Month. In honor of the holiday Blumz by JRDesigns is giving away a dozen roses everyday in the month of June. If you would like to enter to win a dozen roses click here. We are also going to be running some specials and carrying roses in our coolers that we wouldn't usually have in stock. This weeks featured rose is the Clown Rose.

The Clown Rose is a hybrid rose. They typically bloom in the summer months and love the warm weather. They are recognizable by their beautiful spotted pattern. They start out white and get darker at the ends. They come in a variety of colors and are safe to grow in high heat and direct sunlight. These roses grow very fast during the summer season but cannot survive frost, which makes them a risky flower to grow in Michigan.

They are beautiful and hard to come by.This week will will have them in stock at both our Detroit and Ferndale locations. Please give us a call if you would like to place an order for delivery or pick up. You can also come in and design your own arrangement if you would like. Individual Clown Roses are $3.99, a dozen is $49.99 and a dozen vased is $59.99.  It might seem silly to you but you would be surprised how much a bouquet of Clown Roses will make everyone smile!
