‘Checkered Harvest’ winning entry in Royer’s name-the-arrangement contest

Lori Macchi describes herself as a “fall weather person.”

“I’ll take that season any day,” she said.

Macchi’s fondness for fall and flowers made her a prime candidate to enter Royer’s contest to name a mounded pumpkin arrangement.

Her entry, Checkered Harvest, was selected as the winner among more than 1,400 online submissions received Sept. 14-18. Macchi’s prize is one of the arrangements.

The all-around arrangement measures 11.5 inches high, 13 inches long and 12 inches wide. It features a six-inch white ceramic pumpkin, country buffalo gingham bow, roses, alstroemeria, carnations, poms and hypericum.

Reading third-grader Rodriguez wins Royer’s Kids Club birthday card contest

Angelisa Rodriguez loves to draw.

“That’s why I figured she’d be perfect for that contest,” said her mother, Tanairi.

Indeed, she was. Angelisa is the winner of this year’s Royer’s Flowers & Gifts Kids Club birthday card design contest.

Angelisa, 7, is entering third grade at Glenside Elementary School in Reading.

Her design, featuring a couple of smiling flowers and the words, “Flowers for your birthday because you’re beautiful,” will adorn the electronic card that kids club members will receive on their birthdays in the coming year.

Angelisa’s prize is a free flower delivery on his next birthday.

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.

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.
