Royer’s has a pretty elaborate process for developing new arrangements, typically involving a team of people.
But Patti Barclay, store manager for Royer’s in Columbia, Lancaster County, developed an arrangement on her own by experimenting with her customers’ preferences.
Her design features carnations, mini carnations, gerbera daisies, spray roses, alstromeria, limonium, hypericum berries, and greens (in hot pink, orange and lime-green) arranged in a large mason jar accented with hot pink polka dot and orange ribbons.
Seemingly as fast as Patti can make one of her arrangements, it’s purchased out of her store’s front cooler. Because of its popularity, Patti’s design soon will be available year-round in every Royer’s store and on royers.com.
“So we’re making it a part of our regular product line,” said Greg Royer, president and CEO of family-owned Royer’s.
But there’s only one problem: The arrangement needs a name.
This is where you come in.
We’re asking the public to offer suggestions in our name-the-arrangement contest. The winner will receive one of the arrangements as his or her prize.
