Mason Jar Posies

Recently, I have been fascinated with the endless possibilities of Mason jar flowers. As a florist in Singapore, I am always looking for new and interesting ways to vary from the traditional hand tied bouquet style. Although this is something I also adore, Mason jar flowers are something refreshing and an avenue of the floral industry that is currently trending.

From small Mason jars to large center piece displays, I’ve been experimenting with what works best. I’ve been trialing large flowers such as Hydrangeas and Peonies in small Mason jars and more petite flowers such as Spray Roses and Alstromerias in bigger Mason jars. The aim was to find the correct balance of Mason jar to flower ratio. Too much Mason Jar and the flowers will not be highlighted, too many flowers and the Mason jar looks crowded and too compact – the result was somewhere in the middle.

After many months, I think I’ve finally ‘got it’. Check out our Flowers and Jars’ Mason jar posies and see if you agree.


Singapore Florist - Mother's Day 2016

Mother’s Day! One of the floral industry’s busiest days of the year for a Singapore florist, and just like that it’s over at the speed of light! With all the flowers arrangements, preparation, late night planning and lots of sweeping up – it was a test of creative endurance and patience.

This was my first Mother’s Day as a professional florist. The way my hands feel, it could be my last. Jokes aside, it’s ever florist’s dream to wake up each morning with numerous emails, text messages and missed calls from customers entrusting you to design flowers from the heart, for their mother. No pressure, of course…

In the lead up to Mother’s Day, I started taking orders 3 weeks before the event and even received some last minute orders as late as 2 days before. From, blush pink Holland carnations to stunningly fresh peonies there was a wide range of orders for hand tied flower bouquets and Mason jar flowers.

I would like to express a sincere thank you to all my supportive customers, I hope your lovely mothers enjoyed their special day and the flowers you bought added that extra little charm. Till next year…
