Our Luxury Flower Collection

While you want to get the most for your money, there are certain celebrations where money is no object and you want to deliver an over-the-top experience for your loved one or some spectacular event.

That includes flowers and it’s why we listened to many our Long Beach customers who were asking for a flower arrangement collection that featured more premium blooms than our standard flower arrangements. 

It led us to create our luxury flower collection with unique designs, special containers and vases, and dozens of premium flowers.

Here are some of the stunning floral designs now available:

RUSTIC LAVENDER

This luxurious flower arrangement features purple tulips, luscious purple, and green hydrangea, and a succulent.

FOUNTAINBLEAU

This incredible garden flower arrangement comes in three large sizes that overflow with variety and color. Shades of purple, pink, and green are on display among the roses, orchids, calla lilies, hydrangea and other garden flowers that are featured.

DAZZLING ORCHIDS

The centerpiece of this flower arrangement are cymbidium orchids. These are highlighted by pink roses, full-bloom hydrangea, and exotic leaves.

FLORAL FANTASIA

This is an incredible flower arrangement that showcases two colors of roses as well as orchids, tulips, and hydrangea in shades of pink, lavender, and chartreuse. It’s a great example of the creativity our floral design team has in delivering some of the most memorable floral gifts imaginable. 

On Sale!

Just because these are luxury flower arrangements doesn’t mean we can’t put them on sale. That’s right, many of the products from this collection are currently on sale while supplies last.

Flowers Add Ambiance to Any Occasion

HYACINTH AND ROSESfallbeach3When it comes to decorating for an event or wedding, adding something new to your home or office, or gifting a loved one with something unique that adds dimension to their life, flowers are a great choice. In fact, when it comes to setting an ambiance, or mood, flowers have been the go-to choice for centuries across all cultures for lifting spirits and creating a positive impact.

Here’s why flowers are such a great choice no matter what it is you are planning on doing.

Messages from Nature

Nature has art and it’s flowers. These decorate fields and hills with color and create an aesthetic that is enjoyed walking through a garden or park. The same messages are available when flowers are taken from nature and placed elsewhere like in a container or as a bouquet.Mom-Whisper

The messages from nature offer relief, peace, joy and cheer to those who see them or receive them. That’s why they are so often used when someone checks into a hospital or when there is a funeral. The beauty of the flowers helps those who are grieving or physically ill to heal emotionally and physically, including reducing stress levels. That level of comfort and reassurance is hard to find elsewhere because flowers are one of the few things that actually help a person believe that things will turn out.

Flowers are even seen as a way to boost morale and spirits in general, helping to enhance an already joyous occasion like a birthday, anniversary, new baby or promotion. At parties and weddings, they are viewed as adding to the festivities with their color and design. It’s been discovered that people actually smile when they see flowers. It’s a natural reaction and illustrates the deep connection we have with our natural surroundings.

Then there is the fact that flowers send a message of love. They are most often seen on special occasions like Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day. Certain flowers have even been associated with love and are used to represent that emotion. Of course, when it comes to showing love with flowers, there are also those “just because” moments.dec1lb2

Long-Lasting Impressions

Even better is that flowers, even after they have faded after a few weeks, have still made an impression that last. People remember that you gave them flowers or had wonderful floral centerpieces at your wedding. This is because flowers are such a visual item that they are more easily embedded in our minds and memories. That’s because they are a symbol of a loved one’s thoughtfulness that can last a lifetime.

Flowers Are The Perfect Gift At Christmas Or Any Occasion

It’s true! Birthdays, anniversaries, going away’s, get well soon’s, weddings, holidays and even farewells in the office place can all be celebrated with flowers. This is because everyone loves flowers. They come in all kinds of dazzling colors, are pleasing to every eye and fill any room with most pleasant smells and aromas.

Love is in the Air: Time for Crescent Roses

It may not be Valentine’s Day and we may be months away from it, but love is in the air. The summer months are the most popular months for anniversaries and just relationships in general. For the younger generation, school is out and college is out of session and while adults still work, there is just something about the summer months that makes them special.

The longer days, the warm sun, and cool nights allow for more comfortable outings and may stir love and romance all the more.

Roses and Romance

When you stop to think of love, romance, and butterflies in your stomach, what else comes to mind? You probably think about chocolate, kisses, and roses. These are some of the many ways people symbolize the feelings they have for each other.

For a long time — very long time; pre-1800s long — the red rose has been associated with love. Even in its earliest recordings, the color red was associated with a deep emotional feeling, so it’s not just you or us or the rest of the world because roses are and have been the symbol for love

What better way is there, then, to show your love and affection for someone else? Whether for a date, an anniversary of a relationship, or marriage and maybe even just a way of showing someone just how much they mean to you, a gift of red roses shows just how much you care.

Unlike a card or money, flowers are more than a gift; they’re an expression. Do you want to give that special someone something more than just a gift and express your true feelings you have for them? Then Allen’s Flower Market has the perfect solution for you.

Crescent Roses

One of the most popular ways to share roses with your loved one has been to give them a dozen roses either in a bouquet or displayed in a beautiful vase. At Allen’s Flower Market, we are offering something different, a breath a fresh air really known as Crescent Roses.

They are a beautiful arrangement of the freshest and brightest red roses available, but instead of the standard bouquet, they come in a crescent half moon style arrangement that will put a glowing smile on anyone’s face that receives them as a gift of love and affection.

Shine above the rest by giving them the best roses available today in a way that they are sure to remember.

The Bells of Ireland: The Luck of a Not-so Irish Flower

An Amusing History Lesson

The luck of the Irish — something that is commonly said and often just blurted out by an individual that may not even be Irish but is insisting on telling the world around him how lucky he is for holding the winning ticket or something of the sort.

Not only is he probably not even Irish, he also very clearly failed history in high school as the Irish historically have not been a very lucky group of people. The amount of things associated with Ireland and good luck is as common as a fast food restaurant here in America and, as irony would have it, there is little to know luck to be found in Ireland.

The same misconceptions go for a flower named after this same country. Guess we should be pretty thankful that the ‘Bells of Ireland’ (Molucella, for those technical folks out there) actually came from Syria. They are referred to as the ‘Bells of Ireland’ in England and a few other countries and as ‘Canterbury Bells’ in New Zealand and Australia.

It is thanks to England that these uniquely beautiful flowers get their meaning of ‘good luck,’ which is even more ironic when you consider the history between England and Ireland. Yet, while looking at the flower, it is easy to see why the flower is so aptly named. Ireland is a very green and very beautiful country just like this flower

Caring for your ‘Bells of Ireland’

The Molucella flower does better in a cool climate when caring for it at home, in the garden, or the shop waiting to sell it. Make sure the flower gets plenty of water. It is also important to keep the flower out of direct sunlight and away from direct heat sources like an oven in the kitchen as it cannot handle the heat.

When growing the plant outside, many find that the ‘Bells of Ireland’ grow best in light sandy soil and in an open space without too much sun or heat but with plenty of water. Take care of the plant and you will see its beautiful bloom in the spring, summer, and fall seasons. When tended to properly, the stem can very well reach up to two feet in height. Its lengthy blooming seasons, stand-out height, and sheer beauty make the ‘Bells of Ireland’ the perfect gift for any flower connoisseur.

At Allen’s Flower Market, we offer the very best and freshest floral arrangements straight from the growers to give you the best selection possible. Looking for ‘Bells of Ireland’ or some other flower or arrangement? We have the freshest selection in the Long Beach area.
