  • The 5 personality traits for the perfect arrangement

    Did you ever wonder why some people love one flower arrangement, while others prefer a different one? Here are the 5 personality traits that can help you pick or design the perfect arrangement--

    Many years ago, the floral industry did research to determine the different personality traits that define consumers style purchases.  It was determined that we all fall into one of these categories-

    • Exotic
    • Dramatic
    • Natural/Outdoorsy
    • Romantic
    • Traditional

    We here at Kremp’s feel it is important to have selections to meet each of these desires.  None are exclusive of age, gender, geographic local or economic status.  In fact floral gifts can be made in each category for any price, any color and any size for any occasion.  Some examples of how these differ are the following:

    exotic personality trait Choose this arrangement for someone with exotic tastes!

    1. Exotic Most times these are bold colors, reds, yellows, oranges, purples and blues, with tropical flowers.  Anthurium, Birds of Paradise, Dendrobium orchids, Protea and “jungle like” foliage

    Dramatic arrangement of orchids for dramatic personality Arrangement of orchids for the person who loves the dramatic.

    2. Dramatic These arrangements are the ones that would conjure up feelings of a high style elegant party; bold lines, monochromatic colors such as all white, arrangements that focus your eye on individual “Dramatic” flowers such as Gardenias or Cymbidium orchids

    Sunflowers and daisies are perfect for the outdoor personality Casual and fun-- daisies and sunflowers!

     

     

     

     

    3. Natural/Outdoorsy This is somewhat self-explanatory; grasses, Sunflowers, Daisies, Snapdragons all arranged in an informal design

    romantic arrangement personality trait Nothing says romance like red roses!

     

     

    4. Romantic

    Although the most obvious choice here is Roses and there are so many great colors that can be used in addition to red, tulips convey this same feeling as will assorted flowers in soft shades of pink and lavender.

    Traditional personality Arrangement for Traditional mixed seasonal flowers in vase

     

     

     

     

     

     

    5. Traditional

    Here we have the category that covers most occasions and most people.  These are the arrangements that are designed with an assortment of seasonal flowers, usually in a round bouquet; red and white at Christmas time, yellow and orange for the fall and Thanksgiving, bright daffodils, iris and tulips in the spring and any number of varieties in the summer.

    As you scroll through our website you will see many options in each category.  Different occasions can warrant different designs.  If you are not certain as to the style preference of the recipient of your gift, feel certain that anything you select will make anyone “feel special”

  • The top 6 things to know about the Philadelphia Flower Show, before you go!

    This is Philadelphia Flower Show time!

    For most people living in the mid-Atlantic region, March is a bitter cold time of year often with snow on the ground and temperatures that make hibernation sound like a good thing.  But luckily for those within a reasonable distance of Philadelphia, there is something that takes place each and every year unlike any event anywhere else.  And that's The Philadelphia Flower Show.  There may be frozen rain and chilly temperatures outside.  But on the floor of the Pennsylvania Convention Center for nine days in March, you'll see nothing but nature's beauty, specimen plants, and flowers from all over the world.  Before you make your way to the show, remember these few important tidbits.

    1- Bring a camera!

    You will be seeing thousands of gorgeous living flowers, plants, trees, shrubs and more.  And with all of them in perfect bloom at exactly the same time, this is not something you will see in your backyard!

    2- Check the theme.

    The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society does a magnificent job of coming up with an interesting and memorable theme for each year's show.  Previous themes included Articulture, Springtime in Paris and Jazz it up!  This year's theme is Explore America which focuses on our country's National Parks.  Knowing the theme in advance is a great way to build up excitement, anticipating what you may see at the show!

    3- Wear comfortable shoes.

    There's a lot to see which means there's a lot of walking.  But don't worry, there are plenty of seating areas throughout the show where you can take a break, enjoy a beverage, and plan what to check out next!  Your most comfortable pair of sneakers or shoes will be your best friend for the day.

    4- Don't forget the Marketplace!

    As you make your way through the show, you might wonder what all the bright lights and buzz is about at the far end of the room.  That's the marketplace!  You'll find everything from flowers to plants, sheds  to hoses, pictures to potpourri!  It's a nice change of pace during your stroll through the show and often a favorite for many show-goers.

    5- Take the train.

    Why worry about driving and parking when you can take the train?  The Jefferson train stop is literally in the basement.  You won't even have to set foot outside!  Simply go up the escalators and you'll be smelling the roses before you know it.  Talk about convenient!

    6- Take a piece of the show home!

    After a day of seeing so much beauty, the last thing you want is to head home with no flowers.  I mean... it's called the Flower Show, right?  Luckily, the Flower Show is a great place to pick up the most gorgeous flowers at spectacular prices!  Every year, you are guaranteed to get a show special at one of the Kremp Florist booths.  Their roses are the favorite every year and when you see them in a rainbow of colors, you'll agree!

     

    We hope this information helps you enjoy the show to the fullest!  So with or without your green thumb, be sure to visit this year's Philadelphia Flower Show.  There's truly something for everyone!
