A Rose is a Rose… EXCEPT…

We hold these truths to be self evident, that all roses are NOT created equally!

Butera The Florist has been committed to bringing only the finest fresh flowers and world class floral artistry to York since 1980. We are constantly seeking and testing new varieties available. That is why this Valentine’s Day we will be featuring Award Winning roses… “Red Explorer” , “Hearts” and “Playa Blanca”

Red Explorer ,

 

 

Red Hearts 

 

and White Playa Blanca .

These varieties are lush and beautiful, and we have found exceptionally long lasting! You will NOT find these varieties in many outlets, partly because they are not massed produced as many other varieties, hence they come with a premium price. We have sourced them direct from the farms, and have them available to you at our normal prices for Valentines Day. HOWEVER… the supply is not endless, so ACT NOW to secure yours!

Butera The Florist studio is open extended hours:

February 12, 13 & 14 9am to 5pm

2018 & 2019 wedding style forecast… BEAUTIFUL!

Wedding styles are constantly in transition… that is part of what makes this business SO EXCITING! Staying a few steps ahead, forecasting the next trend styles, interpreting style trends to each client and making it their own.

2018 and 2019 weddings will continue in the overall trend of beautiful and romantic. Currently, blush pinks, champagnes, and ivory dominate with soft, fluffy blooms to create a soft, romantic, feminine look. This will continue through at least the first part of the 2018 wedding season. I predict a gentle shifting further down the road of rich, jewel tones including lush, velvety burgundy with varied shades of purple. The wild “Boho” look of the past few years is quickly being replaces with more sophisticated, elegant styles… while foliage will continue to be important, it will be more controlled as an accent to floral. I see a move stylistically to gentile southern and Mediterranean-chic.

Do you want to see our interpretations of these styles and others? Join us at area wedding showcases during January. We will be at.
