Lisianthus Packs a Punch!

Let’s try something new; let’s try Lisianthus! We love this flower and we want you to love it, too! Known as Lizzy for short, it is available in pink, white, purple and picotee (that’s fancy for “petal tips appear to have been dipped in color”). Limited time only, Lisianthus bouquets now available at Blooms by Vickrey.
Lizzy-what? Lisianthus, pronounced, Liz – ee – an – thus, is native to the Southern United States and commonly referred to as the Texas Blue Bell or Blue Field Daisy. If properly cared for, Lisianthus can last up to two weeks as a cut flower.
Lisianthus is versatile, lending itself to a multitude of looks. For instance, the double petal variety is similar in appearance to a peony or rose and is a great substitute for spray roses in boutonnieres and corsages; while a single petal head may resemble a poppy or tulip. Lisianthus is the perfect addition to a garden-inspired flower arrangement, wedding bouquet or floral gift.

March Artist, Chance Figueroa, Jewelry Designer

Meet our March featured artist, jewelry designer Chance Figueroa. An incredibly talented teen, Chance has been a juried artist since the age of 10. His “Tree of Life” motif is a beautiful mix of semi-precious stones and up-cycled materials. Each piece is meticulously handcrafted into a one-of-a-kind design. Blooms is honored to showcase Chance’s work and invite you to pick up a piece of wearable art today

February Featured Artist, Angela Rubinic

Blooms by Vickrey is honored to showcase the work of abstract artist, Angela Rubinic of Harrisburg.  Angela’s unique pieces are a culmination of the externalization of her personal reactions and thoughts.  Like a visual game of tug-of-war, the numerous reactions and counter reactions spark her creativity.  Employing the use of acrylic and mixed mediums, Angela creates complex, textured paintings that pull the viewer into her landscape of lines, layers and shapes.  Various themes and inspirations produce surfaces that are meant to be explored; an objective that the artist hopes will invoke the viewer’s reaction to the composition instead of to an actual object or image.

A life-long resident of Harrisburg, Angela studied art at Millersville University and currently serves as an art teacher at Cumberland Valley High School. A selection of her art is currently on sale throughout the Blooms by Vickrey showroom at 2125 Market Street, Camp Hill.  For additional information, please contact Blooms by Vickrey at 717.737.0212.

Giving Back to the Community Through Your Support

Did you know that when you purchase flowers from Blooms by Vickrey you are helping us to support local non-profit efforts throughout central Pennsylvania? As part of our commitment to giving back, Blooms by Vickrey has partnered with several local organizations that are making a difference in the local community.  One such group is Mission Central, the mission warehouse of the Susquehanna Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Mission Central began in 2002 as a three-pronged effort: Disaster Response, Mission Outreach and Mission Education with the objective to centralize and unify the mission work of the various churches within the Conference. Mission Central now has in-house Ministry Partners that include Bethesda Mission, Computer Ministry, UMCOR, New Digs and Project C.U.R.E., and partners with more than 80 other ministries throughout PA and around the world.

Mission Central hosts thousands of volunteers who are responsible for processing United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) kits of various types (School, Birthing, Health, Sewing, etc.) for use all around the world, as well as provide supplies of all types needed for local, national and international ministries and assist countless projects that are sending God’s love around the world.  Working in concert with other denominational and nondenominational programs, and as a member of the UMCOR Relief Supply Network, Mission Central has been able to provide aid for people affected by every major weather event since 2002.
