Alexander’s floral department is now a member of FTD, a national floral wire service connecting our local store with mom-and-pop flower shops in every city across the nation. Now you can order and send same-day fresh flowers – or goodies and gifts – anywhere in the country by visiting us in person or viewing our special FTD link (click on the “flowers and gifts” banner on the home page). In the spotlight this week and next are Halloween-themed arrangements as well as potted mums for All Saints Day memorials.
Under the direction of floral manager Glenna Bethay, our floral department does more than customize beautiful flower arrangements. Bethay and her talented team also design container gardens, corsages and boutonnieres, holiday centerpiece arrangements, bridal bouquets, fruit baskets, wine and cheese baskets, new baby gift baskets (available with “Made in La.” jewelry!), teacher appreciation gifts, and more. They will help you select non-floral gifts too – wax warmers for dorm rooms or enclosed office spaces, scented candles from Paddywax and Woodwicks, beautiful mixed metal and wood picture frames, local gardening books and cookbooks, and many other classic as well as seasonal home decor items. Coming soon: locally made custom jewelry, Christmas stockings, and holiday wrap, to name a few.
Here, a sampling of what’s available in floral. Visit our website and floral department often to see gift options rich in local color that save you from a trip to the mall!Events | October 25th, 2013
