Timeless vs Trendy

An expression of love does not have to be a massive gesture and a Valentine’s day gift is no exception. Love is personal therefore only you can determine the ideal way of expressing it. So stop stressing about the perfect gift because a gift marking this holiday should represent yourself as much- if not more- than the person to whom you’re gifting… and if you’re worried about whether or not they’ll like it, just remember that you chose it because it reminds you of them.

When it comes to flowers, Le Bouquet has made this floral maze easier to navigate by making their Valentine’s Day collection available immediately to you (or for delivery!) online. Showing up to the store on Valentine’s Day can be quite intimidating: a line snaking out the store door, bouquets of roses lining the walls of the store, florists working meticulously to create bouquets and flowers. seemingly effortless but ultimately stunning floral boxes as well as endless boxes of incredibly delicious Belgian chocolates ready to be devoured. It’s easy to just point to the nearest arrangement and leave before feeling too overwhelmed but then what about the thought? Where was this connection between your romantic gesture and your Valentine? Don’t accept the idea that Valentine’s Day is impersonal because it’s only true if you think it is. Take it from the family who knows it… we’ve been doing it for over 40 years!

Lucky for you, we’ve put together a list of timeless and on-trend pieces to help you shed the impersonal and find the perfect!

Now ask yourself: is your Valentine timeless or trendy?

The timeless

Timeless is for the person who likes to keep things simple, who can be hopelessly romantic, who loves to be amazed, or who stays true to tradition.

  • So, forget the bears in bloom and forget the blue roses (yes, they do exist!) and opt instead for our Selection of Red Roses arranged and stored in a box for an optimal surprise or directly in a vase for a maximum impression .
  • Or perhaps our Lush Life arrangement would suit better: 12 red roses in a compact hand-tied bouquet placed in a gold and white ceramic vase accented with gold heart details.
  • And for those who stay true to tradition, all of the In the Name of Love or Sweet Like a Heart products come in a package each including roses, chocolates and a teddy bear (or, in the case of Sweet Like a Heart , an adorable beagle soft toy).

The Trend

Trend is for the person who likes to live in the moment, who knows everything and knows what’s in fashion or who can’t settle for what’s already been done.

  • In that case, forget the teddy bears and the standard rose bouquet and instead opt for one of our new products, such as Rose Gold, which includes carnations, regular and spray roses and a silver eucalyptus in a geometric vase in rose gold.
  • If you are looking for something quite unique, opt for our Blue Roses which can also be packaged in a box or arranged directly in a vase.
  • If roses aren’t for them, check out Kisses in a lip-studded ceramic vase that holds pretty spring tulips in varying shades of mauve, pink, red and white.
  • Finally, if roses are still close to your heart but arranging them in a vase is too complicated, try Amour Amour, which contains a charcoal and white patterned box filled with rose heads of various sizes and colors that we affectionately call it “shades of love”.

The Ti- Break

Flowers are so versatile that even using one type of flower, for example a rose, can become a timeless and trendy item. Take for example the eternal roses that have been popping up in our news feeds: specially preserved roses that will last a lifetime are carefully packaged in clear acrylic boxes or a single red rose perfectly packaged in a clear cylindrical case (psst…we have all this right here). So when you give this gift, you’re giving the most timeless gift of Valentine’s Day – the rose – in an everlasting and fashionable way.

Harvest the Warmth of Autumn with Radiant Bouquets and Decor

Harvest the Warmth of Autumn with Radiant Bouquets and Decor

There’s something about the way Fall ushers in that sets the tone for how we view our surroundings. That first deep breath of fresh, crisp, cool air has a way of reminding us to slow down and watch as mother nature repaints the leaves, the flowers and produce in a pallet of electric colors.

The sun may set a little earlier and the temperature may drop a little lower, but the warmth of rich Autumn colors such as vibrant oranges and yellows, velvety burgundies and even deep greens, inspire us to be creative and embrace the festive season! One way we’ve always loved to show our creativity – and our homes or loved ones – our appreciation for this magical season is by bringing the glowing warmth of Autumn colors into unique floral arrangements and interior décor.

The Fall season is often associated with plants and flowers dying off for the season, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! There’s a bounty of options to choose from as you look to create different seasonal centerpieces, bouquets, gifts and crafts. One of our favorite designs we love to share with you as your trusted local Montreal florist during the Fall season is our Harvest Pumpkin bouquet.

Arranged in a classic pumpkin jar (which doubles as a cookie jar perfect to house your pumpkin spice cookies!), the Harvest Pumpkin bouquet blends together the happiness of sunflowers and daises with the romance of sun kissed orange and yellow roses amongst other seasonal plants, such as hypericum berries and dried wheat. It’s just one beautiful example of how you can recreate Autumn’s ambiance with glowing floral combinations and decorate your home with a festive keepsake that can be used over and over again!

If you’re looking to create a more elegant, effortless arrangement, then Chrysanthemums with burgundy and yellow tones will keep your bouquet looking fresher longer. Not to mention these floral gems pair nicely with more dramatic flowers such as orange lilies and cymbidium orchids. To help make darker Autumn colored flowers and plants stand out such as red gerberas and burgundy roses, style them in a way that incorporates pale yellow and white gourds and squashes.

Embracing the variety of flowers, greenery and produce Fall has to offer can also go a long way in your Halloween decorating. Bring the kids in on your experimentation with different seasonal flowers and plants for quality time that’ll surely be a treat for all! Pick out your flowers, pumpkins and other embellishments together, such as festive ribbon and stemmed decorations like spooky ghosts and jack-o- lanterns! Half the fun of trick-or-treating is getting to experience all the amazing decorations and feeling the joy it brings.

Don’t just take our word for it, come discover your Halloween spirit at your local Montreal florist and let us inspire you and create WITH you a gorgeous Autumn bouquet arrangement.

We wish you a safe, happy and Festive Fall season and a happy Halloween!

How-to Personalize This Year’s Mother’s Day Gift!

How-to Personalize This Year’s Mother’s Day Gift!

One thing is for sure, all these April showers are bringing May flowers! Just in time for mother’s day too.

Instead of leaving it up to the internet or magazines, we’ve actually asked our mothers what they’d like this Mother’s Day and the results are in! The answer? Family-time! Taking this into account we propose a family day, starting with a homemade brunch. Seeing as May welcomes spring, flowers are an absolute must for a brunch. There are endless flower possibilities to decorate the table setting whether its tulips in a mason jar, wildflowers in a cup, roses in a gathering vase, or a mixed bouquet to decorate that forgotten antique vase. No matter which you choose to adorn your one of a kind breakfast feast, it is sure to have her smiling before her morning coffee!

Rather than grabbing the first flowers we see, we thought: What can we use to make up the perfect mother’s day arrangement? First, we listed all the attributes we love about our moms. For example, her endless patience, infinite love, strength, and her perseverance in creating for us the happiest life she could. Then we asked ourselves how we could incorporate this into a unique gift to show her our gratitude for everything she’s done for us? Lucky enough these attributes are symbolically linked to certain flowers!

Patience= Asters
Infinite love= Roses and Pink carnations
Strength= Snapdragons
Happy Life= Stock
Gratitude= Hydrangea

Already we’ve turned a seemingly ‘run-of-the-mill’ gift into one that reflects the qualities we adore and admire in our mothers.

Next, we took something simple and made it extraordinary.

And there we have it. Floral gifts may hold more meaning than you think! Make a list of all the things that mean something to you, research the flowers that reflect them, and we will be here to help you find the right combination! 🙂

Breathe Easy and Transform Your Space into a Jungle!

Breathe Easy and Transform Your Space into a Jungle!

And while you’re at it, remove some harmful gasses from your household air… it’s the easiest spring cleaning you’ll ever have to do.Ferns, succulents and air plants are the hottest thing in the plant world. People are looking for ways to live cleaner and greener and these plants are a quick solution. Lucky for you (and us!), our store is full of them. Before checking out our selection, read up on why you need these as well as the ideal places for them in your home.

Air plants:

Even bathrooms need a little bit of love, and air plants are their perfect match! Air plants are jungle plants, which means they like spaces where it’s typically humid, damp, and hot. Just think, after a shower your bathroom transforms into a mini jungle that is so needed for these plants to thrive. With their funky shapes and varying shades of greens and blues, air plants are sure to liven up the bathroom.

Succulents:

Succulents are like the plant equivalent of salt: sprinkle a little here and a dash over there, and suddenly every room is dotted with green! Their small size and flexible living conditions make them perfect for windowsills. While some of them flower, others grow in such bizarre ways it looks like a plant giving birth to another smaller plant! (Seriously, check out ‘Pleiospilos Nelii’.)

Ferns: Our homes (whether we like to think it or not) are not as clean as we think. Invisible gasses such as carbon dioxide and formaldehyde are common culprits. Formaldehyde is a substance used in various household items such as cleaning products, cosmetic sprays, detergents or housing infrastructure like manufactured woods used in cabinetry and floorinh. Once released into the air, it can cause nausea, asthma, itchy eyes etc. and seeing as houses are very well insulated these days, it doesn’t escape our living spaces as much as we would like. A potential solution? FERNS! They actually remove these gasses from our air. Don’t believe us? Quick Google search of ‘Ferns and NASA’ will confirm this. Suggestions as to where to place ferns around your home? EVERYWHERE!

Explore our plant section for our complete collection of those showcased here!

Valentine’s 2018

Valentine’s 2018

Cupid is collecting his arrows and love is in the air…

One of the surest ways to success is getting things done early-sorry to the procrastinators out there but it’s true! To do’s shouldn’t be put off until the last minute. Preparation is key: in this day and age, juggling 101 daily tasks and activities does nothing to reduce our stress, and bringing a smile to the face of a loved one shouldn’t be considered one of these stressors. Knowing and feeling exactly this same way, the Le Bouquet St-Laurent Team has made it as easy as possible to check that ‘to do’ right off your list! We’ve assembled all of our Valentine’s products into one category so that no matter if you prefer ordering by Web or by phone, we guarantee simplicity.

If that’s not enough, here are three reasons why you should beat the rush and order today:

  1. First come first serve! Every year there are a couple of products that really stand out. With no surprise, these are hot sellers are sold out long before the 14th comes around! Forecasted top picks this year are Amour Amour and Lush Life, which has just been glammed up with a new vase! Both arrangements feature classic roses in red or of shades of love.

2. Savings are better when you order early! Must I say more? Check out the coupon codes below.

********COUPONS***********

Use coupon code ‘VAL10’ for 10% off anything on our website OR ‘13FEV’ for a FREE delivery on the 13th of February when you spend 75$ or more!
Only one coupon code is redeemable per order. VAL10 applicable until January 31st only.

3. Save yourself the stress of the Valentine’s Day rush… Enjoy the feeling of driving home to your loved one while avoiding the flower shop traffic. Believe me, we live in Canada with some of the most unpredictable weather. So if I could suggest just one more hint, schedule your delivery for the 13th. Our local delivery system to the greater Montreal area is just one of the ways we’re here to help.

Phew, don’t you already feel better about this upcoming holiday? We do! More importantly, less time scrambling means more time with that special someone. After all…isn’t that what it’s all about?

Sincerely,

Cupid’s Little Helpers (Le Bouquet St-Laurent)
