Royer’s collecting holiday cards and coloring pages for service members and veterans in November

Royer’s Flowers & Gifts is collecting holiday cards and coloring pages for service members and veterans throughout November in each of its stores.

Royer’s will present the collected items to the American Red Cross “Holidays for Heroes” program.

Cards and coloring pages may be dropped off at any Royer’s store during normal business hours. Free coloring pages can be downloaded at royers.com/heroes

The Red Cross offers these guidelines for preparing cards:

  • Use generic salutations: “Dear Service Member” or “Dear Veteran”
  • Be thoughtful with messages, expressing reasons why you are thankful for the service members/veterans; if you have a personal connection, such as a family member who served, consider adding that
  • Try not to be overtly religious, but messages such as “Merry Christmas” or “God Bless You” are acceptable
  • Do not include inserts such as glitter, photos, business cards
  • Do not include personal information such as telephone number, address or email
  • Sign your name

Sizing up six new arrangements for fall

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Several sure signs of the season: cooler temperatures, candy corn on grocery store shelves and the arrival of our fall menu.

Emily Mallis, Royer’s marketing manager, shared her insight on six arrangements making their debuts.

2820/Foliage Terrarium:

A tilted pedestal container gives a unique, updated look to our everyday dish garden while retaining its vintage feel.

2838/Rectangle Succulent:

Succulents are in, and we are keeping them trendy with this stylized design. This two-plant dish garden gives an earthy feeling, with the stone container and moss as finishing touches.

3768/Darling with Spray Roses, Extra Large:

Charmelia adds height and removing the lilies and gerbera daisy makes for a fuller look in shades of purple and pastel pinks. Ginger spray roses add a finishing touch.

3780/Triple Rose Bud Vase:

This new style of triple rose vase, with its wider lip, enhances a shift to more of an all-around look that’s a great size for an office desk or end table in the home.

3788/Baby Girl Steps: 

The new L- shaped, three-quarter round design replaces the all-around look from last year. The increased height and width give it a more impressive look, with pink or blue carnations instead of an overall garden color.

3795/English Garden Vase:

We wanted to increase the number of $125 vase selections. This English garden vase was redesigned to be fuller. It no longer includes curly willow and uses stock, roses and other value flowers in place of lilies and gerbera daisies.

If you haven’t received a copy of the fall menu in the mail, you can pick one up at any Royer’s store.

Royer’s Flowers & Gifts’ annual food drive collected 1,381 pounds of nonperishable items for the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank and Helping Harvest, formerly Greater Berks Food Bank.

The Royer’s Stems Hunger event, which took place June 22-July 6, has collected more than eight tons of food since it began in 2011.

Royer’s East York store collected the most pounds of food among our 16 locations.

Donors received a free carnation for each food item they contributed, up to six per visit. Besides Royer’s stores, eight Drayer Physical Therapy Institute locations in the area served as drop-off locations.

We are grateful to everyone who contributed to the success of this year’s food drive.

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.
