  • Leave it to the Pros- The Purple Pansy

    Catherine4

    What most couples that are planning a wedding don’t realize is that saving money by hiring a hobby or amateur florist for your wedding can actually come with a huge cost. I’ve fixed many wedding bouquets that have had Brides in tears. Hire a professional that knows how to condition flowers properly and store them in a temperature controlled cooler. The small details make a big impact when it comes to knowing what to do.
    A new trend for Brides tends to be more foliage in a bouquet. The draping effect magnifies the size of the bouquet to appear larger. Perfect for outdoor photos and summer weddings. The Purple Pansy flower boutique in downtown Chatham

  • Wedding Show season!

    wedding show

    I recently attended the Wedlux Wedding show in Toronto and WOW am I inspired! I travelled with a few local merchants in the wedding industry and we were thrilled with the decision to attend this show. We quickly realized that as amazing as this show was- we truly do have a lot to offer our local Brides in the Chatham Kent area. The large scale of the show was a showcase but when you got up and close to the products we noticed that a lot of Chatham establishments are just as talented.
    That being said, I am super excited to be participating in the CK Wedding show January 24th at the Chatham John D Bradley Centre. I hope you are attending to see some of our amazing designs! As well stay posted to view some of our favourite designs of 2014 with Brides submitting photos to us in the near future. Please take a look at our facebook page for full albums.
    Here at The Purple Pansy we are looking forward to another amazing year of weddings in 2015. Have fun planning!

  • Why do some Roses have black edges?

    1.  Why do some Roses have black edges?
    Black edging happens for two reasons: light and temperature

    Explanation:
    UV light–
    Roses are grown in areas with lots of intense light energy. Production areas close to the equator (Colombia and Ecuador) get 12 hours light      everyday of the year and the light energy (luminosity) is strongest at the equator vs. northern latitudes.

    Pigments in red roses are particularly sensitive to “sun-burning”. This condition is genetic to red, brown and purple rose varieties

    UPSIDE: It is this strong equatorial light that also provides us intense colors

    Temperature:
    Greenhouses in Latin America are mostly not heated so when there is a big difference between daytime and night time temperatures, roses respond in a way that the pigments concentrate.  In yellow and pink varieties, concentrated pigments appear as red flames or    intense color chips, but in red varieties, pigments appear black.

    UPSIDE: The wide variance in daytime—night-time temps gives us HUGE head sizes

    2.  DO BLACK EDGES AFFECT VASE LIFE?
    No, not at all. The down side is simply the effect on aesthetic appearance

    3.  WHY DON’T GROWERS PEEL PETALS SHOWING EDGING?
    •   Peeling opens the bud structure and blooms pop fast
    •   Peeling triggers the internal production of ethylene which shortens vase life
    •   Ethylene gas is produced as a wound response
    •   Peeling distorts the bud shape. No one wants a Hershey’s kiss shape rose
    •   Peeling the guard petals leaves roses susceptible to mechanical damage inherent in  transit and handling
    •   When roses open, the dark edges re-curve down and are not visible

    4.  WHY DO WE GROW VARIETIES THAT SUFFER EDGING PROBLEMS?
    These varieties are selected because they perform well in the growing conditions of Latin America (e.g. large heads, strong, long, straight stems, good opening)

     


  • Unexpected Visitor

    On Wednesday we had an unexpected visitor; a stray cat found its way into The Purple Pansy getting out of the cold temperatures. She was cold and hungry. If this is your pet or you know who it belongs to please give us a call at 519-354-5555.


  • Black Swan Photo Shoot

    Over the summer The Purple Pansy flower boutique participated in a Black Swan photo shoot. John Lyons an amazing wedding photographer in Chatham Ontario asked us to be part of this shoot that was to be printed in the Bridal Confidential magazine (currently in stores now). What an inspirational day; the models were fantastic, the dresses beautiful, hair updo’s were current and the make-up was stunning. The Capital Theatre in Chatham Ontario was the location for the shoot and was a spectacular background to showcase these photos. This photo shoot allowed us to be very creative in the flower design style and flower selection- a somewhat gothic look but still delicate and flowing with the feathers and dendrobium orchids.
