Have fun, shop local!!!

So by now everyone is gearing up for Thanksgivings and if your house is anything like mine we are also gearing up for Black Friday. As I sit here and think about another year in the cold and racing to the same item as everyone else, I think I’m going to sleep in and help out my neighbor. On Saturday, November 24th is Small Business Saturday and wouldn’t it be nice if we can help those business owners who give so much time to there craft as well as there communities. I cant help but think how chaotic it can be on black Friday and how our thoughts are so much upon getting that next thing before someone else, when we can shop local and have a good feeling knowing you are helping someone else. Now I’m not trying to beat around the bush, we would love for you to come to Welke’s House of Roses but if you cant,  just shop local. It could be really fun to see all the different stores you have in your community.

If there is any week that should go on forever, we hope its this one.

So today is World Kindness Day which kicks off World Kindness Week. Welke’s House of Roses is very excited to see the spotlight on being kind. We truly believe that these kinds of actions can really change the world. We only hope that we can keep kindness in the forefront of our minds forever. Welke’s House of Roses has a long lasting vision on helping those who do random acts of kindness. We even have a program here that will give away free roses once a week to those who go out of there way to help others who are expecting nothing in return.

Its time for a Education!!

So June is National Rose month and with that Welke’s House of Roses is here to help you understand “the rose”.  Roses can be very fun but also quite high maintenance. So, this month we will be blogging about different facts and try to have some fun with it as well.
Today’s tidbit is about the “The Language of the Rose”.
Did you know, that a combination of Red and Yellow roses means “Congratulations”.  So, don’t forget when you are going to a graduation this week make sure you add your Red and Yellow roses.
Enjoy the “Rose” song of the day!

From the bottom of our hearts…THANK YOU!!!

Welke’s House of Roses loves and supports our troops. Through out the years we have had numerous members of the Armed Forces work here at Welkes. We know and appreciate all the sacrifices the men and women of the armed forces give us. This Memorial Day may we take a little time to remember the rights and freedoms we have because of these Heroic men and women. Enjoy this video of our soldiers coming home and make sure you have enough tissues with you, I was balling with in a minute.

Well we are still here so….yeah.

Well we didn’t win a dime last night, and as for that little post about us closing if we win…….We were just playing with you. We would have been here no matter what. 650 million wouldn’t have changed anything around here, just the same old people with nicer cars. Any who, we are here and we have some amazing Easter Lilies. Stop by either location and check them out!!
