Who’d a Thunk it?

Who’d a Thunk it?

Have you been in any retail store lately? Your neighborhood grocery store, a big box store, anything? Who’d a thunk you’d see Christmas in October? One of our local news stations asked people if they thought it’s just TOO DARN EARLY to see Christmas items in the store, and more than 78% of the people said Yes! And I’ll admit, we totally agree! But there it is, big as day, staring you in the face, asking that you BUY BUY BUY now now now before they run out (as if they’re going to run out) of inventory!

Kinda makes me wonder.  I wonder if we’re really thinking about Christmas!

Nah, can’t possibly be!

(Of course those of us who craft start making our Christmas gifts for next year January, but we’re the exception to the rule!)

Most of us are going to wait until November, or even December, before we start making our lists and checking them twice!

If we wait, then we get to enjoy Halloween and Thanksgiving! Those are 2 great holidays that seem to disappear more and more each year. Sure, you see lots of candy and the frozen turkeys are starting to appear, but are you really enjoying Halloween and are you honestly thankful on the one-day-of-the-year-set-aside-to-say-THANKS?

So, then, you’re wondering why I’m writing to ask if you’d even begin to think about Christmas! I dare say, YES!

The inventory at Roadrunner Florist and Basket Express is arriving fresh daily. We have limited supplies of delicious cookies, cakes, pies and pates. We are ordering our fresh fruit by the bushel, both organic and non. We have ordered our Christmas Greens (I can hardly wait for them to come into the shop because they smell so great!) as well as our holiday flowers! We have containers in various shapes and shades of red, green, silver, gold and white. We are setting out our candles for your centerpieces. We’re lining up our delivery drivers.

It’s quite a season for us, and a busy one, so we’re excited! But who’d a thunk you’d get excited too?

Well, I THUNK SO!! I think you can’t help get excited when you hear the music (Santa Claus is Coming to Town), when you start to think that YOU are Santa Claus and that we’re here to help you!

Our beautiful websites are ready to accept your holiday orders, for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. www.roadrunnerflorist.com  and www.giftbasketsbytina.com are loaded with ideas, and if you don’t see your favorite, then simply call us and we’ll design unique gifts for you!

I dare say it’s not too early … not too early to Thunk About It!  Happy happy happy holidays!

Spring Forward, Fall Back! CORRECTION

Fall Gift Basket

Spring Forward, Fall Back!

Correction!! Blame it on Godaddy!!  They said the site wasn’t secure! But it is!! So go ahead and click and enjoy!!

We’ve all heard it: Spring forward, fall back! Frankly, it doesn’t mean much in Phoenix, except that we get confused AGAIN about whose time zone we’re sharing! Since we don’t change from Mountain Standard Time, sometimes we share with California and sometimes we share with Colorado. No matter what, we’re confused for about 6 months, and then once we figure it out, it changes and we get confused all over again!

No, we’re not jumping the gun! I Googled it and learned Daylight Savings Time doesn’t end until November 6th. That’s really late for us to talk about autumn, because by that time we’re getting ready for Christmas!

OMG, Christmas! Yes, that’s when you start thinking about your corporate gift baskets! How many will you need this  year? Do you have your list?

And what about the people in your life? Like your dentist and doctor, accountant and lawyer. How about a gift basket for that special waitress or hostess at your favorite restaurant?

OK, I’m way ahead of myself. (but not really, because today is a great day to get your list together and get it to me so I can guarantee Christmas delivery of your custom designed gift baskets)!!

Let’s talk about Fall.

Could it be that fall is just around the corner? Even here in the desert, we can feel the change of season. Our imported trees begin to change color (or we can drive just a couple hours north and be a mile high and enjoy the true change of colors). Mornings are absolutely amazing, including the breath of cooler air. Evenings are spectacular, with the earlier sunsets of many colors.

And people seem to get back into the swing of things, including school, Boss’s Day, Thanksgiving and holidays. (oh, my, we’re back to those holidays! See, I’m right…you have to start thinking about gift-giving for the holidays, like for the teacher and the policeman and the mailman and the gardener. Don’t forget about your web designer and IT guy. Maybe I’ll make a list (and check it twice) to make sure  YOU don’t forget anyone!)!

That’s where we come in! We love designing floral arrangements and gift baskets for all! Here’s a goodie gift basket that’s perfect for your fall outing, for Boss’s Day, Thanksgiving or a football party!
