It’s Recycle Time!!

Spring cleaning is great but isn’t summer when most of us really have the time to clean a little deeper? Get motivated to get organized with Dandelions’ Recycle Week July 22-27!


All week you can bring in your gently used vases in return for a gift certificate to Dandelions. We are located at 1710 Chambers St., Eugene, OR and are open 8:30-5:30 (open till 6pm on Friday). We take vases of all sizes and styles but no chips or cracks, please. If the vases have been sitting in your garage we would hugely appreciate it if you took a peek before dropping them off- one Recycle Week there was a deceased mouse in a vase. Ick!!

Other than that, bring ’em on in! In return we’ll send you home with a gift certificate for the following:

5-10 vases= $5 Gift Certificate

11-20 vases= $10 Gift Certificate

21+ vases= $15 Gift Certificate

Only 1 gift certificate can be redeemed during the week. We accept vase returns all year long (just not for the bonus of the gift certificate) so if you can’t make it in during our Recycle Week but still want to offload some vases feel free to bring them by!

Track and Field Olympic Trials

Here in Eugene we were so excited to again host the US Track and Field Olympic Trials at historic Hayward Field. Dandelions created the award bouquets for each athlete who will travel to London as an Olympian. A total of 120 athletes were awarded and we worked with the committees color scheme to create a yellow and green bouquet rich in textures. Spider mums, green trick dianthus, solid aster, green chyrsanthemums and yellow chrysanthemums were accented with bear grass and river grass. With world records and meet records set it was an exciting week of track and field to watch. Congratulations Olympians!

She had plenty of fun with her mini bouquet

We also designed centerpieces and arrangements for British Petroleum’s hospitality suite on site at Hayward Field and at their hotel. It was great that their logo colors happened to match perfectly with our own UO! We used long-lasting tropicals to combat the outdoor venue and 14 day length of the event. What a fun job we have!

The hotel entrance flowers were a mixture of oncidium orchids, pincushion protea, bromeliad blossoms and grasses

Since flowers are the top gift choice for Valentine’s Day I’ve collected some of my favorite designs that are unique and interesting. A dozen roses or a dozen carnations with babies breath is still popular but it is so refreshing … Continue reading
