And the winning arrangement name is … Cottage Garden

A quote from the French impressionist painter Claude Monet adorns SaraJane Barto’s refrigerator: “I must have flowers, always and always.”

Barto, of Carlisle, takes those words to heart, buying flowers for others and herself.

“And I love gardening,” she said. “Couldn’t do without flowers.”

That passion for flowers prompted Barto to submit the winning entry in this summer’s Royer’s name-the-arrangement contest.

Her entry Cottage Garden was selected from among nearly 900 total submissions. The online contest ran Aug. 1-15.

As shown above, Barto received a Cottage Garden arrangement as her prize.

The all-around arrangement features a square white-washed wooden box holding three sunflowers, charmelia alstroemeria, carnations, mini carnations, viking poms, purple spray asters, and raffia ribbon.

Barto said she has been a Royer’s customer for about a decade, after relocating from California.

“I love our Royer’s,” she said. “Their plants and flowers and leaves just last so long and are so pretty.”

She had won prizes before at home demonstrations or at bridal or baby showers, but nothing like Royer’s contest.

“This is much more important,” she said.

Red Lion sixth-grader wins Royer’s Kids Club birthday card design contest

Madalyn Yorgy of Red Lion, York County, is a creative 11-year-old.

“She loves crafts and theater,” said her mother, Rachel. “She loves to sing.”

Madalyn, who will be entering sixth grade, shoots movies, draws and colors adult coloring books.
“You name it,” Rachel said, “and she makes it.”

That experience no doubt contributed to her winning this year’s Royer’s Kids Club birthday card design contest.

Her colored design of flowers and the words, “Bloom: It’s your birthday!,” will be featured on the electronic card that kids club members will receive on their birthdays in the coming year. Madalyn’s prize is a free flower delivery on her next birthday.

The Royer’s Kids Club is free to ages 5 to 12. With parental permission, children may register for the kids club at any Royer’s store or at royers.com/kidsclub. Kids club benefits include a membership card, online activities, a quarterly e-mail newsletter, contests and in-store events.

We need your help naming this arrangement; enter our contest by Aug. 15

We’re giving the current name of this new arrangement a green thumbs down.

And that explains why Royer’s annual name-the-arrangement contest is appealing to the public to rename what is now known as the Garden Box design.

The person who submits the winning name will receive this arrangement (retail value $54.99) as a prize.

The all-around arrangement features a square white-washed wooden box holding three sunflowers, charmelia alstroemeria, carnations, mini carnations, viking poms, purple spray asters, and raffia ribbon.

Dawn of a new arrangement: introducing Farmhouse Sunset

Being a professional interior designer, Kristin Iwancio said entering Royer’s name-the-arrangement contest was “totally in my wheelhouse.”

Indeed, it was.

Iwancio, of Susquehanna Township, Dauphin County, submitted the winning name – Farmhouse Sunset – among 639 total contest entries.

“I love sunsets, so why not go with that? I’m never up early enough for sunrises,” she quipped.

The new arrangement includes two short-stemmed orange roses, a mini green hydrangea, a hot pink spray rose and purple statice.

It measures 13 inches high and nine inches wide.

Although Farmhouse Sunset won’t be available to the public until fall, Iwancio received one early.

It was her prize for naming the arrangement.

Entries due July 31 for this year’s name-the-arrangement contest

One of our new arrangements, debuting this fall, has all kinds of color, thanks to two short-stemmed orange roses, a mini green hydrangea, a hot pink rose spray and purple statice.

But what the arrangement doesn’t have is a name. This is where you come in.

Royer’s is holding an online name-the-arrangement contest, with the winner receiving one of the arrangements as his or her prize.

The deadline for entries is July 31. Limit one entry daily per email address.

Good luck!

Marisa Heisey still has a newspaper article on her bulletin board about winning the Royer’s Kids Club back-to-school coloring contest in 2011.

Six years later, she’s going to need another thumbtack.

Marisa, who is entering seventh grade at Gerald G. Huesken Middle School in the Conestoga Valley School District, won this year’s edition of the Royer’s Kids Club birthday card design contest.

Her design will be featured on the electronic card that Royer’s Kids Club members will receive on their birthdays in the coming year. Her prize is a free flower delivery on her birthday.

Our new arrangement gets a name: Patti’s Passion

Patti created it, and Michelle helped name it.

Patti Barclay, store manager for Royer’s in Columbia, Lancaster County, developed an arrangement that was wildly popular with her customers.

contestA

It was so popular that Royer’s decided to offer it in all of its stores and online. But the arrangement didn’t have a name.

So Royer’s asked the public for help. A recent name-the-arrangement contest garnered 550 entries, including two from Michelle Hooper of Manheim Township, Lancaster County, that inspired the arrangement’s new name:

Patti’s Passion.

The arrangement, which will be available companywide on Oct. 1, 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 dotted and orange ribbon.

Hooper will receive one of the arrangements as her prize.

Thank you to everyone who submitted names.
