A helpful guide of industry-specific terminology referenced throughout the website
Artisan: Something that is high quality and made by hand.
Artisan Arrangement: This is not your typical grocery store/farmers market flower arrangement where you grab a bunch of flowers and simply pop them into a vase. This is a design-inspired work of art resembling a professionally designed aesthetic. It consists of premium luxury flower varieties that are not readily available to the general consumer.
CIY: Create it yourself. The Floral Pantry’s elevated fresh take on DIY (do it yourself).
Cut Flowers: Any flower or flower bud that is cut from the plant and is ready for decorative use in a fresh flower arrangement.
Flower Frog / Flower Pin: A device used to help arrange flowers.
Floral Pantry: Likened to an artfully rustic potting shed, the literal usage refers to a closet/cabinet/room that’s filled to the brim with all the elements of floral style to nurture your home – vessels, tools, design materials, etc.
Flower Recipe: A list of floral ingredients used to design a flower arrangement.
Pro Tools: Specific tools of the trade that our Tastemakers design with. These tools are anything from chicken wire to flower frogs, floral tape, floral putty and beyond.
Shears: Also referred to as secateurs or scissors, shears are cutting tools designed to cut through flower stems and foliage. They vary in shape, size and blade performance.
Vase Life: The length of time flowers stay fresh after reaching the customer.
Vessel: A vessel is our word for vase. I.E. not your standard, boring, tall and narrow flower holder, but rather a one-of-a-kind handcrafted form. Vessels are referred to as “artisan vessels” because The Floral Pantry collection is not mass produced. It is a collection that is curated from independent artists and makers around the world.
