Beginning late May, early June, our supplier from coastal Oregon will be able to provide a range of colors and sizes, including all shades of blue, purples, and of course whites. 30 stem box orders are available for $3.00 per stem, with the option for up to 3 different colors. Overnight shipping of a 30 stem boxe runs from $45 out West, up to $105 to the Eastern states. This is the only source we trust in the summer months due to the cool summer climate in coastal Oregon, and the ability to control the actual picking day, ensuring much fresher blooms then normally available elsewhere. FedEx has discontinued Overnight deliveries to Nantucket and a few other outlying areas, and as such we regret that we are no longer able to offer this service locally. A 3-4 week advance notice will help insure availability, with delivery 2 days prior to event date highly recommended to guarantee ontime delivery.
Standard flower sizes (Oregon flowers) range from 4-8" depending on type/season. Typically I recommend 6-8 blooms for the bridal bouquet, 4-5 blooms for the attendants.
Miniature blooms come in at 3-4" with 8-12" stems, are available for mid-June through the end of July, and come in most color shades (no greens) including pinks and reds. The stem price is the same as the Oregon flowers ($3/stem), shipping from Nantucket with a 24 stem minimum, and lasting 5-7 days in the summer heat if properly handled. Overnight shipping via USPS Express for states east of the Rockies (sorry, no West Coast shipments allowed by USDA as yet) is a flat rate of $30 for a 24 stem box, making them an economical alternative where applicable,,, 8-10 stems will make a full bridesmaid bouquet or fill in an 8" bud vase to overflow. As always, please be aware that hydrangea require special handling to prevent wilting and prolong their shelf life. Water is essential at all times, and cold storage is recommended, especially in summer. Corsage work is tricky at best, and bouquets are best tied with water picks. If shipped by overnight delivery, we will guaranty their condition upon arrival. Once in your hands they become your responsibility. All claims must be made within 12 hours of accepting delivery.
