Royer’s Flowers contest asks customers to name new pumpkin arrangement

Candy corn is so popular that it seems to arrive in grocery stores earlier every year.

Royer’s Flowers & Gifts’ annual name-the-arrangement contest is getting a head start on fall, too.

The new all-around arrangement features a ceramic pumpkin, measures 12 inches high and 10 inches wide and comprises carnations and daisy poms in fall colors.

To enter the contest, visit royers.com/contest. Limit one entry daily per email address, through Aug. 12.

One winner and one runner-up will be selected from entries received by Connells Maple Lee and its sister company in Pennsylvania. Both the winner and runner-up will receive one of the arrangements (retail value $36.99) as their prize.

Allison Rivera wins Royer’s Flowers birthday card design contest

Allison Rivera, 9, enjoys playing any game with a ball, including tennis with a neighbor.

But regardless of whether the East Lampeter Township, Lancaster County, resident ever masters her forehand or backhand, she’s already a skilled freehand artist.

“She loves to draw, loves to color,” said her mother, Debbie. “She always has.”

And she’s gotten so good at it that the fourth-grader at J.E. Fritz Elementary School aced this year’s Royer’s Flowers & Gifts Kids Club birthday card design contest.

Her winning entry will adorn the electronic card that kids club members will receive on their birthdays in the coming year. Her design features white daisies set against a purple background and the message, “Have a Flowertastic Birthday!”

Allison’s prize is a free flower delivery on her next birthday.

Allison, whose family also includes her sister, Emily, 8, and father, Angel, loves to draw flowers and people, her mother said. One of her specialties is drawing a person’s face on the side of a cake when it is his or her birthday.

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

Carlisle resident wins Royer’s name-the-arrangement contest

Janet Wright said a carousel reminds her of an amusement park and happiness.

That’s the vibe she was going for with her winning entry, “Carousel of Color,” in Royer’s Flowers & Gifts’ annual name-the-arrangement contest.

Wright, of Carlisle, said she entered just once. Hers was among nearly 1,500 online submissions received between late July and Aug. 6.

Participants saw a photo of the arrangement and a list of its components: a clear dimple vase filled with sunflowers, carnations, daisy poms and charmelia, with accents of golden solidago and purple asters.

Wright said she has been a Royer’s customer for almost 20 years and many occasions.

“We just used Royer’s for my mom’s 70th birthday, and they did an amazing arrangement for her,” Wright said.

For winning the contest, she will receive a Carousel of Color arrangement as a prize.

Lancaster County’s Paige Hershey didn’t sit idle during the pandemic.

For one thing, the East Lampeter Township 12-year-old got busy entering contests. One was for photography, another for writing.

“She’s just driven,” said Paige’s mother, Heather.

That drive led to success for the seventh-grader. Paige had the winning entry in this year’s Royer’s Flowers & Gifts Kids Club birthday card design contest.

Her design will adorn the electronic card that kids club members will receive on their birthdays in the coming year. Paige’s prize is a free flower delivery on her next birthday.

Paige, one of five siblings, loves to draw (mainly horses) and read, Heather said. Paige plays field hockey and basketball and swims.

“She’s a really fun kiddo,” her mother said.

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 online at royers.com/kidsclub. Kids club benefits include a membership card, online activities, a quarterly e-mail newsletter, contests and events.

You name it, you win it: Royer’s new arrangement

Every year for various reasons, Royer’s Flowers reworks approximately half of its arrangements.

This year, one of those makeovers is the focus of Royer’s annual name-the-arrangement contest.

This design features a clear dimple vase filled with sunflowers, carnations, daisy poms and charmelia, with accents of golden solidago and purple asters. It’s only lacking a name.

To view the arrangement and enter the contest, visit royers.com/contest. Limit one entry daily per email address, through Aug. 6.

The person who submits the winning name will receive the arrangement (retail value $49.99) as a prize.

We want to tell a love story, perhaps yours

 

Let’s get to the heart of the matter: With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we want to share a family-friendly love story on our blog, perhaps yours.

We’re holding a contest to find that story. The winner, who must live within Royer’s delivery area, will have his or her story professionally written and will receive three monthly flower deliveries (valued at $29.99 per month) courtesy of Royer’s new subscription program.

To submit your story, look for our pinned Facebook post on Jan. 20 and respond in the comment section of that post by midnight Jan. 22 (UPDATE: This has been extended to Jan. 26.)

In two or three sentences (approximately 50 words), tell us what is unique and compelling about your love story. Maybe it’s how or where you met, or when you realized you were in love, or a sweet tradition you share.

The winner, who will be chosen on Jan. 25 (now Jan. 29), must be willing to participate in a phone interview that week. We’ll share the story in early February.

We hope you’ll put your heart into this. Good luck!
