Once Upon a Spring

pre-made silk floral arrangementsAt Granny Taught Us How & Heidi’s Room, spring has certainly sprung indoors and it has triggered an explosion of colour! Tart tangerine and chartreuse, rich turquoise and sunshine yellow, regal purple and of course the grassiest greens – shake off these grey days with some striking pops of colour…you can’t help but smile at the sight!

There’s no better way to bring spring home than with our ever-popular selection of silk flora. This year’s stems are more realistic-looking than ever and offer many new flower varieties to choose from, including foxtails, dogwood branches, delphiniums, and an assortment of desert blooms, pods, spikes and grasses for texture. Don’t have the creativity to pull it all together? Well we do! We have several professionally designed, pre-made silk floral arrangements in attractive containers made by our talented staff, ready to display and beautify your home.

Selective Selections


Heidi’s tastes are pretty discerning, but there are a few things with which she just couldn’t help herself on recent buying trips! So while we may have a lot of them, they’re all uniquely tasteful.

  • Take your pick of our new lanterns available in various sizes and many styles, ranging from modern contemporary to dockside casual to country garden, twig and wood. For mood lighting or as a decorative display case, indoor or outdoor, we're sure to have a lantern to suit your purpose.
  • We've also received a wide variety of clever, stylish and functional clocks, in both wall and table designs. Just in time for wedding gift season!
  • Quilt sets: from ornate stitching to traditional patchwork, start a new family heirloom with a quilt set for the blanket box - another great wedding gift idea.
