Dos Gringos

The Dirt - August 2010

The 2010 Dos Gringos Autumn Collection of handcrafted Bouquets were created for the celebration of the fall season. The colors are warm and rich and each bouquet has a texture and story all its own.

No matter what part of the country you are in, seasonal changes are exciting. Change is good! Beyond fall leaves, beyond pumpkins and crisp air, it reminds most of us of time together inside warm and cozy surroundings, gathered around a fireplace, good food, good wine (or even better, tequila) and great friends.

Enjoy and Hasta Luego,

Hot Apple Cider Bouquet
Mention hot apple cider and people smile! Add to that a bouquet by that name and you will double the pleasure. The uniquely Dos Gringos two-tone orange Sunsplash Sunflower is hot enough by itself but we’ve added rust Poms, Eucalyptus, field grasses and some rust foliage to round it out.

Moroccan Spice Bouquet
Moroccan Spice highlights the exotic colors of far away places. This bouquet ties in nicely with global elements in current home design trends. Deep black/purple ornamental grasses and greens are mixed with matching centered Sunflowers. Different indeed!

Wildflower Honey Bouquet
Sunsplash is one of the latest novelty cut sunflower varieties on the market in California and its’ golden honey color is the basis for this ensemble of California Wild Flowers, just picked from the fields. The French Marigolds further enhance this multi-branched bouquet.

Country Casual Bouquet
Country casual doesn’t just apply to jeans anymore! Flowers now too come in the incredibly popular style of relaxed, natural and color correct design. This rich collection features deep orange red novelty Asiatic Lilies, Rust Mums, Strawflowers and just the right mix of other country flowers to make you want to take it home!

Dusk Bouquet

Intense is what most people call this bouquet. Only Dos Gringos offers this variety of Sunflower, which at the time of printing was not named yet. Let’s just say it has a deep reddish purple center which we carried as a theme with the rest of the materials like purple baby blue Eucalyptus, purple Ruscus and some yellow Straw Flowers to lighten it up a bit.

Spicy Hot Bouquet
The elements in this outstanding combination of super long lasting floral materials are the ever-trendy Ornamental Peppers, red Ruscus, red Solidaster, and other spicy hot orange red flowers. Did I mention the orange red Sunflower? It is truly spicy hot, and good enough to serve with any Mexican dish…just don’t eat the peppers!

Gabriela Mercado, a Dos Gringos Team Member, and Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Sarah Radel, help unload about 5,000 Sunflowers off a truck a couple weeks back on July 21st at the Naval Hospital on Camp Pendleton. We donated the flowers to the hospital to give to patients, staff and visitors as a thank-you for their service.
