Who’s the Boss

So, do you want to get on your Bosses good side…..Don’t forget about National Bosses Day next Tuesday the 16th of October. Let me make it easy for you, follow the link and let Welke’s House of Roses take care of it for you. And don’t be shy, invite some co-workers in on the fun.



What a great event, Honoring those who brought Honor to this Country.

I cant wait until August 1, 2012. This truly is a once in a lifetime event. Honoring those who brought honor to this country is such a privilege. For information please follow the link below.


Sky rockets in flight…..Where do I go for fireworks?

I don’t know what its is but I can never figure out when there is going to be fireworks.  You would think you could go to your local park at dusk on the 4th and boom, but its not always that easy. I found this site that will help all those in the Milwaukee area find the big bangs. I thought I would try and make it as easy as possible.

Where are the fireworks?

Remember your Father’s past and present.

As I made a delivery today to a graveyard I couldn’t help but think about all the fathers in my life, past and present. This fathers day may we remember our heritage and the trail blazers that have come before us, as well as the fathers in our lives now. Make sure you stop by, where ever they are and pay your respects. If you want to bring something with you stop in at Welkes and bright up the day.


Its really makes you reflect on the time that you have with you loved ones.  One thing is for sure “time” is one thing you can never get back.  Live in the moment and cherish the people you love!!

“The language of Roses” part duex

To continue on with our theme this month, here is another interesting tidbit about roses.
Did you know that Pale Color roses mean friendship. They would be good to send to a tennis partner or maybe a neighbor who is house sitting for you. Gentlemen, this is a good tip for sending roses to a colleague or friend, with out coming on too strong.

Summer, Summer, Summer, Summertiiiiiime

Memorial Day weekend is upon us, and where I’m from that means Summer is here!!!! WE ARE EXCITED!!! AND WE JUST CAN’T HIDE IT!!! WE ARE ABOUT TO LOSE CONTROL AND WE THINK WE LIKE IT!!!!(Did I take that too far) Now with this time of year comes BBQ’S and graduations. I’m all about the BBQ’S but nothing is worse than trying to huddle around an umbrella waiting thru 500 names to clap for your 2nd cousin. The only thing that makes this situation bearable is when we hand over the beautiful flower arrangement from Welke’s House of Roses. Don’t forget to bring something nice for your graduate, its a really nice touch for a day that only happens once….or twice depending on college and stuff like that..OK so it could happen a couple times but its still a nice touch.
Anywho enjoy the best summer song ever!!!!

Is there really any other way to go??!!

Mother’s Day is this Sunday and here at Welke’s House of Roses we are here to help you. The main dilemma with anyone when placing your Mother’s Day flowers is were to go to order.  I found this video very helpful!

After watching this video I just don’t understand why anyone would use any of these online companies. Come on people shop local.  Don’t get me wrong Welkes would love to help you this mothers day but if you don’t choose us, choose a local flower shop.

Here is some still picks from the video.

First up was FTD.

The picture on the left is what is looked like online and picture on the right is what the customer received!  Im sure your mom will love it.  I mean it fresh flowers right.

Next up is organicbouquet.com

All right, proflowers.com its your turn.

So I think we proved our point here.  It’s as easy as going to welkes.com or calling either one of our location,  on the coner of 56th and North ave in Milwaukee, 414.442.8640  or Downtown Elm Grove at 262.786.1040

A random act of kindness!!

Kathryn Severson, we appreciate you!! This is her nomination story:
“I have known Kathryn for a very long time and she is always giving to people. The best part is she passes this sense of giving to all the kids she teaches at Premiere Ecole Preschool. I have had 2 kids graduate from PE and they both had the best experience. They learned that it is better to help someone for no reason than it is the right thing to do. It always makes you feel good. This is due to Kathryn! She has given back ten fold and the kids are now doing the same, making this world a little better off!”

On behalf of Melissa Koski and Welkes House of Roses please enjoy these flowers and know that is people like Kathryn Severson who make this world a little better for everyone else.

Administrative Professionals we salute you!!

Administrative Professionals day is right around the corner (Wednesday, April 25) and in my opinion this is just as important at Mothers day. As Mr. Welkes Admin Professional, he makes me feel so special and appreciated. With his wonderful ways of showing he cares like taking me golfing and buying me lunch, it boost the moral and creativity of my work environment. The little things really do go a long way so go to welkes.com and get your flowers early and often, because if you don’t you could find yourself missing appointments and forgetting to follow ups.
