Exotic Flowers in Boston's Top Five Twitter Personalities

Posted by Rick Canale on Wed, Sep 17, 2014

Rick Canale Twitter Boston Florist

Hi, my name is Rick Canale and I tweet. I tweet a lot. Days, nights, weekends, you could say I have an addiction. I follow more than 1900 Tweeters and am followed by over 1200. If you are a glutton for information, want your news now or enjoy pop culture, then Twitter is waiting for you. As a matter of fact, you do not even have to tweet to enjoy twitter. I know many voyers on Twitter that have never even tweeted. I love Twitter so much that I even bought their stock. I have compiled a short list of my favorite five on Twitter to get you started. I have also thrown in a solid list of honorable mentions to build your profile and although I am not a huge advocate of following companies on Twitter; I have tossed in a few that seem to get it right. Here is my short five in no specific order.

  • @DaveKerpen Dave is considered one of the most influential marketers on LinkedIn. His infectious personality has transformed the social media landscape. Some may remember Dave as the Crunch n' Munch guy. I know Dave as a kind man who loves his family, is a huge baseball fan and pleasure to work with. You can learn a lot from him.
  • @chrissyteigen Some may know her as an SI Swimsuit cover girl while  others recognize her as John Legend's wife. Teigen is the blueprint for anyone looking to build their personal brand on Twitter. She also tweets lots of great photos of food, engages her fans and makes you laugh a lot. describe the image
  • @RingPRGirl Boston Public Relations pro, Kimberley Ring is a torch bearer for those who want to help others on Twitter. Sharing anecdotes, promoting charities and reaching out to others make Kim a Twitter all star. 
  • @BeschlossDC Michael Beschloss is an author, presidential historian and contributor to PBS and NBC. Follow him for a daily history lesson filled with prize winning photos.
  •  @megansarahj Megan tweets all day long. Some news, some humor and some great pop culture. 
Once you've added these five people to your profile, then you can add our list of honorable mentions. 
  • @fatbellybella - entertainer Erykah Badoula shares wisdom and responds to her fans regularly.
  • @NICKIMINAJ - Nicki Minaj is everywhere lately. This outspoken entertainer posts regularly and interacts with her fans.
  • @gabekapler - this former Red Sox World Champion shares a great baseball insight and healthy living tips. His interaction with fans keeps  us as fans.
  •  @PaulaEbbenWBZ - local news legend Paula Ebben is great for timely news and quickly responds via Twitter to her fans.
  •  @darrenrovell - one of the best there is for sports drama.
  • @ellemacpherson - always awesome when a legend replies to your tweet, she makes the list.
  • elle mcpherson
  • @Alyssa_Milano - being a passionate baseball fan puts her on the list, favoriting my tweet keeps her on the list.
  • @HallofFamePrez - Baseball Hall of Fame President Jeff Idelson is a great follow for all us baseball fans.
Companies like @LLBean@comcast@VZSmallBiz and @NotifyBoston have all shown me how quickly customer service can happen via Twitter.
Of course I would be remiss to not mention how cool it is when a celeb follows me. @FallonTonight @TRACIBINGHAM@JoeyBats19 @JosephKellyJr
@MikeBiv. Thanks to them and all my followers. It is likely that Exotic Flowers in Boston will not have a Twitter account. We want to keep our relationship personal. Thank you for trusting as your florist in Boston.
If you want to connect with me on Twitter, I am @RickCanale.

Funky Flowers For Your Halloween Centerpiece

Posted by Rick Canale on Mon, Oct 22, 2012

hocus pocus roses in boston
Inspired by a recent tweet from PR Maven, Kimberley Ring - Exotic Flowers presents some funky flowers for Halloween in Boston. As florists in Boston, we forget that clients need guidance on choosing flowers for their holiday parties. For Halloween, flowers choices range from blood red roses to creeping amaranthus. Some of our favorites can be seen in this post. Above is the Hocus Pocus Rose, natural burgundy splashed with yellow streaks, this rose is magical.
Halloween Party Flowers
Celosia is brainlike in appearance. This cut flower comes in red, yellow, orange and green. There is no better way to create brain matter with cut flowers than clustering celosia blooms in a skull like vessel.
Klingon flowers
Having a science fiction themed Halloween Party ? Klingons and Trekkies can both agree that pincushion protea would be an ideal flower for an interplanetary theme. Pincushion protea is readily available in orange, yellow and multi color fuzz as well.

If you really want to raise the bar for your Halloween party, then check out the bat flower. A little gross and kind of scary, the bat flower is sure to be the conversation piece of your event. Please know that the bat flower is quite rare, so get your order in as soon as possible for Halloween.
