Updates from the Island…

We apologize first of all to our loyal customers for not updating our schedule on our website in July when the changes were made!  Please check the store hours, noting in particular that the Island is now closed on Mondays AND Tuesdays, and that the store opens at 11am, except on Sundays. Fall has arrived, and most tourists have left Santa Cruz, but flower sales at Island Home and Garden have been brisk, with leis, bridal arrangements, and party flowers on order every weekend.  We continue to get our flowers from Hawaii and Thailand every week, and recently have received beautiful ‘speckled’ orchid stems, and a new purple mokara orchid.  Please note too that tuberose season remains fully current and fresh bunches arrive every Friday morning – the fragrance is beautiful.

Featuring: Tropical Flowers!

At Island Home and Garden, the only flowers available are beautiful tropical specimens that we fly in from Hawaii. We don’t do ordinary roses! For Mother’s Day, choose a mixed arrangement in a vase (starting at $35) or let us wrap a beautiful selection in our colorful tropical paper. There will be many blooms to pick from: birds of paradise, heliconia, ginger, and assorted colors of orchids & anthuriums. If you are planning on a more personal floral gift for Mom, let us make a corsage or a lei, using our many different colored orchids. They are quite beautiful!   Share...

Coconut Grove 2014 Bridal Show

The tropical flowers of Island Home and Garden are once again featured at the 2014 Bridal Show held at the Coconut Grove in Santa Cruz on Sunday, February 26th. They are on display at the Annieglass Booth in two beautiful glass dishes supplied by Annie Morhauser for the occasion. Robyn chose whites and soft purples for the color scheme to complement the misty glass and was able to use a beautiful spotted aranda orchid along with white and green anthirriums, freesia, white, green and purple orchids, siberian lilies and interesting foliage. For all the brides-to-be visiting the show who have a tropical theme planned, or are thinking of a beach wedding, we encourage you to visit Island Home and Garden and see the selection of colorful blooms which arrive weekly from Hawaii and Thailand. You can also proceed to the wedding category on this website for more ideas!   Share...

Customer feedback for Wedding flowers!

We always love to hear from customers that are highly satisfied with our arrangements – especially from newlyweds! We recently received the following Email:   “I just wanted to say THANK YOU for the beautiful wedding flowers. They were even more beautiful than I imagined. I loved that you incorporated the dahlias as that is Will’s favorite flower and the colors were just perfect.  It was a gorgeous, magical day! Kristin Kelso-Blankenship”   Share...
