Going Green in 2017 with Flyboy Naturals
In our last blog we reviewed 5 wedding trends we expect to see in 2017! One of the top predictions was for GREENERY GALORE. With The Pantone Color Institute naming “Greenery 15-0343” the color of the year we expect to see greenery abound this year. What better way to kick off the New Year, than showing you how Flyboy Naturals can help you Go Green in 2017!
Fresh-Cut Green Hydrangeas
Our hydrangeas are large, showy flowers with clusters of star-shaped flowers packed together creating beautiful round heads. Hydrangeas are thought to have been originally discovered in Japan, but the Greek name comes from “hydor” meaning water and “angos” meaning jar or vessel, combined this translate to “water barrel” and describes the hydrangeas need for plenty of water.
Florists love their woody stems that are easy to work with, sturdy and great for use in wedding bouquets. These flowers are so large that just a few stems can create a stunning bouquet or centerpiece. Hydrangeas are said to symbolize gratefulness and pride and are often used in celebrating the 4th Wedding Anniversary. Our fresh cut green hydrangea flowers are seasonal and typically available from June through October. All of our flowers are fresh-cut per order and shipped directly from our farm to you.

Flyboy Naturals petals are all natural, eco-friendly, non-staining, not slippery, biodegradable and they are not harmful to the environment. You can feel good about using these petals that are grown on our family owned and operated farm in the Pacific Northwest in a climate and location that is ideal for growing and naturally produces beautiful flowers, receives plenty of rainfall and uses wind energy. Take a sneak peek behind the scenes at our farm here. We use wind energy for the processing of our freeze-dried products through our participation in Pacific Power’s Blue Sky Wind Power renewable energy program. Renewable wind energy generates zero carbon dioxide emissions! In addition, we participate in Eden’s Natural Choice - a certified green pest-control program, designed to control unwanted insects and pests while reducing the impact on the environment. We also strive to use recycled materials wherever possible in our paper and cardboard packaging.
Our petals cost less than fresh petals and you receive petals that last for many months rather than just a few hours. They can be reused, composted/recycled and repurposed into a number of memorable treasures. Check out our blogs with plenty of ideas on how to Preserve, Reuse and Repurpose your petals here and here.
