fresh picks

The latest from Dutch Bloemen Winkel.

We’ve all received boxes upon boxes of Christmas cookies and chocolates one Christmas or another.  If you are a business looking for a stand out way to say thank you to clients or partners  we think long lasting, fresh smelling greens are a beautiful way to go.  Not to mention they are round longer than that box of chocolates and are easier on the waistline this time of year! Check out these wreaths, ordered by a local business, that are heading out of the shop today.  We had such a  blast designing and decorating them, and hope they are enjoyed for many weeks to come.  Start planning your 2015 gifts now!

Toad wanted to remind everyone that we will have an extended schedule for the shop this week.  We will be open every day from now until Christmas Eve!  The shop will be open 10-5, even on Sunday and Monday this week (10-2 Christmas Eve).  We have tons of beautiful holiday gifts and decorations in the shop, and of course the flower fairies have been working day and night to create beautiful potted and fresh cut holiday arrangements as well!

We will have seasonal centerpieces available for pick up and delivery right up until Weds when the shop closes at 2 (we will be closed on Christmas day).  Orders for delivery have to be in by the end of business Tuesday, and if you require any specialty flowers (and boy do we love those!!!) we need your order by Monday to get them here on time!

 

Happy Holidays!

We love winter weddings here at Dutch Bloemen Winkel.  There is something so magical and unique about each one.  No matter what the season, we strive to find you the most stand-out collection of flowers that are absolutely you for your wedding.

This is an old favorite of ours from 2011.  Amanda and Mike got married at Whitneys Inn in January and we had the best time making their vision come to life with our designs. Their ceremony site was a wonderland, with  fresh garland made with cedar, noble fir and juniper with pinecones on the arbor, and the aisle was lined with baskets of fragrant greenery, pine cones and moss .  The bride and her attendants carried hand-tied bouquets featuring some of our signature flair for design, using white anemones, dusty miller, juniper, fiddleheads and seeded eucalyptus.  The table design was simple and elegant to match the rustic barn décor, featuring spray roses in recycled glass containers and pine cones.

‘Tis the season for holiday parties!  What is better than all the fun parties we get to go to this time of year?  Knowing where to get that perfect host/hostess gift each time!  The hardest part about shopping at Dutch Bloemen Winkel will be choosing what your friend will love more.  We have whimsical and beautiful potted centerpieces that will enliven any table or mantle well past the holiday season.  Pick from a variety of styles and price points, all are created in house by our holiday-loving staff!

As if that wasn’t enough to choose from, there are many other talented artists from Jackson, NH displaying their creations in our shop right now.  Take a look at the beautiful line of hand crafted Mistletoe stockings by Leslie Fletcher, made right here in Jackson!  We are also offering hand lettered holiday wooden signs by Dee James.  They feature cheery messages and beautiful winter scenes.  We can’t help but use them in everything we’re working on around here.  You’ll see them popping up in our wreaths and arrangements!

One last thing we can’t get enough of is Minstral’s line of French Soaps.  We have yummy scented winter pine and holiday spice ready to freshen up your sink or counter for the season!

Hope to see you in the shop soon!

Always left wondering what to bring for a host/hostess gift during the holiday season?  Around here we love to start Amaryllis and Paper White bulbs in November in cute decorative pots to get ourselves ready for such a social season!  Who misses another bottle of wine or fruit cake when you can present your host/hostess with a gorgeous, fragrant live plant!

They are just the easiest to grow and add a little bit of life to a room, just as the winter is taking hold.  We sell pre-potted and loose bulbs (paper whites only come loose, but you can always put a special order in with us and we could have something ready for you within a working day).   All bulbs come with growing instructions.

The shop has three gorgeous varieties of Amaryllis bulbs to choose from this year, but hurry in, so you can get them growing in time for your favorite holiday parties!
