LEBANON, Pa. (Aug. 31, 2015) – It was like a Christmas present in need of a bow.

croppedRoyer's new Christmas arrangement

Royer’s Flowers & Gifts had developed a new arrangement for the holiday season. It would come in a red mason jar and include red carnations, white alstroemeria, hypericum, tips of Douglas fir and white pine, pinecones, and shiny red stick-ins.

The only ingredient missing: a name.

But that has been taken care of, too, thanks to more than 450 entries in the company’s online name-the-arrangement contest held earlier this month.

The winning entry: Homespun Holiday

Three area women, separate of one another, submitted the winning name and as their prize will receive one of the arrangements in early December when it becomes available to the public. The winners are Lori Heisey of Columbia; Katharine Hoch of Hummelstown; and Diana Myers of York.

“We received many thoughtful suggestions, but as soon as we saw ‘Homespun Holiday’ we knew it was the one,” said Greg Royer, president and CEO of family-owned Royer’s. “Thanks to our winners and to everyone else who submitted names. We can’t wait to introduce the Homespun Holiday arrangement.”

Lebanon-based Royer’s ( operates 16 stores in Berks, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon and York counties. Sister company Stephenson’s Flowers & Gifts has one Harrisburg store.
