Name-the-arrangement contest: Part 2

finalcroppedWhite Select 6x6

Spring forward, fall back.

To name a new arrangement, Royer’s Flowers & Gifts is going back to a method that worked well this summer: turning to the public for help.

Royer’s has developed a new European-style arrangement that will be offered year-round. It comes in a clear glass cube and features three types of greens and white flowers: one-dozen roses plus alstroemeria, hydrangea, veronica and stock.

To view the arrangement and enter the contest, visit royers.com/contest.

The deadline to enter is Oct. 20; limit one entry daily per email address.

The winner will receive one of the arrangements as his or her prize.

 

‘Homespun Holiday’ selected as winning entry in our name-the-Christmas-arrangement contest

It was like a Christmas present in need of a bow.

We had developed a new arrangement for this holiday season.

It would come in a red mason jar and include red carnations, white alstroemeria, hypericum, tips of Douglas fir and white pine, pinecones, and shiny red stick-ins.

The only ingredient missing was a name.

But that has been taken care of, too, thanks to more than 450 entries in our online name-the-arrangement contest.

The winning entry: Homespun Holiday

Three people submitted the winning name, and as their prize they will receive one of the arrangements in early December when it becomes available to the public. The winners are Lori Heisey of Columbia; Katharine Hoch of Hummelstown; and Diana Myers of York.

“We received many thoughtful suggestions, but as soon as we saw ‘Homespun Holiday’ we knew it was the one,” said Greg Royer, president and CEO of Royer’s. “Thanks to our winners and to everyone else who submitted names. We can’t wait to introduce the Homespun Holiday arrangement.”

Sixth-grader Kaitlynn Balmer-Brown wins Royer’s Kids Club birthday card design contest

Kaitlynn Balmer-Brown

Kaitlynn Balmer-Brown has been dancing since age 3, studying jazz, tap and ballet. She also expresses herself through art, drawing graffiti-like designs on paper.

“She was good in art class,” said her stepmother, Emily Brown.

And she was plenty good enough to win the Royer’s Kids Club birthday card design contest.

The Lower Paxton Township sixth-grader’s drawing of a flower and balloons graces the electronic card that Royer’s Kids Club members will receive on their birthdays in the coming year. For Kaitlynn’s effort, she will receive a 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 online at www.royers.com/kidsclub.

The daughter of John and Sandy Longenecker is pretty fond of drawing, too.

“She draws a little bit of everything,” Sandy said. “She likes to draw pictures of animals, flowers.”

In fact, one of Julia’s flower drawings has earned her another descriptor: winner of Royer’s Flowers & Gifts’ 2014 Royer’s Kids Club birthday card design contest.

Her drawing of a flower-filled vase will grace the electronic card that Royer’s Kids Club members will receive on their birthdays in the coming year. For her effort, she will receive a flower delivery on her birthday.
