THAW. Every year we have hundreds of people come though our doors and no show is the same. Last year, we brought the event to our Holly store and did back to back events. This new back to back set up went so well that we are doing it again this year!
We are currently taking application for this years event. The Ferndale event will take place on Thursday, November 8th and the Holly show will take pace on Friday, November 9th. If you would like to apply please email firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a small free for the table rental and we do not repeat vendors so once you secure your spot we work hard to make sure that no one else sells merchandise like yours. Mark your calender's for this years event and share this story with someone that you know that might be interested in being a vendor at one or both of our annual shows!

Want to get the most out of your poinsettias this holiday season? Here are some great tips from Blumz to make sure you do!
Pick a healthy plant. The longevity of a poinsettia plant can be dependent on its purchased condition. Select a plant that has bright green leaves and colorful sturdy bracts. After returning home with the plant, remove its protective covering and place in a location that receives indirect sunlight.
Water the plant regularly. Practicing proper watering techniques is important to the survival of all plants. Poinsettias should be watered when the plant’s soil is dry. A great way to water it is to take the plant to the sink, remove the foil wrapping and add water to the soil. The foil wrapping can be replaced after the excess water has drained from the plant. The plant can also be placed in a saucer and the foil wrapping can be punctured at the bottom of the plant to allow drainage.
Avoid direct sunlight. Because poinsettias are tropical plants, they do require some sunlight. But, placing the plant in direct sunlight can cause damage to the plant’s leaves. Extreme low or high temperatures and drafts should also be avoided.
BE AWARE: The belief that poinsettias are poisonous is a common misconception, according to a company spokesperson. A number of organizations, including Ohio State University, have documented that poinsettias are non-toxic and safe to be in homes where children and pets reside. As with many plants, poinsettias are not meant for ingestion and may cause discomfort if consumed.
Come by Blumz and check out our wide selection of poinsettias including red, yellow, white and more! We have all shapes, sizes, and colors!

We did the research for you and we are happy to say that as long as you do not have a feline the lilies are fine! But, if you have a kitty you might want to rethink your choice. Lilies are safe for all animals except for cats. This is the offical statement form the Society of American Florists:
"The National Animal Poison Control Center says certain types of lilies can cause renal failure in cats that have ingested any part of the lily. SAF recommends keeping lilies out of the reach of cats. It is important to note that lilies do not pose a problem for other pets or humans".
So, if you or the person you are purchasing a lily for has a cat its time to rethink your purchase!
Give us a call at (248) 398-5130 / (313) 964-5777 or visit our website to order something special today!

International Women's Day celebrates women's accomplishments and advocates for gender equality. Honor an inspiring woman in your life by sending her hand-delivered flowers on March 8th!
THE HISTORY OF INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY:
In 1908, 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding the right to vote and better pay. Two years later, an International Conference of Working Women was held in Copenhagen, Denmark where the idea to hold a day around the world where women demand their rights was proposed. International Women’s Day was born!
HOW WE CELEBRATE:
