Fall by far is my favorite time of year with the cooler temperatures, leaves changing colors, pumpkins, pumpkin spice latte and all the fun ways to celebrate the season with flowers. Here are some trendy looks for fall arrangements.

Flowers in traditional fall colors arranged with traditional fall accents like figs, corn and other vegetables make a classic floral gift.

We all know that one special day in May is reserved for Mom; it’s her day. While we fret over what to get, never underestimate the power of flowers.

Because a delivery of flowers is never expected, even for Mother’s Day, it is always exciting to be on the receiving end of such a beautiful gift. With so many floral choices, where is the best place to turn? Your local florist.

Take the time to pop into your local shop and have a look around. If you’re looking for a special flower or color palette, ask if it’s available.

Ask what original designs might be available at that shop and be open to suggestions.   Read More

Every Valentine’s Day floral arrangement is an expression of love. As a florist, it is truly a privilege and honor to see how people love and be a part of their love story. Here are a few examples of different ways flowers show affection and reveal part of your sweetheart’s personality:

Some Valentines carefully select each blossom for their beauty and meaning. The card messages that accompany these bouquets melt my heart. Each flower in this hand-tied bouquet was chosen for its meaning: alstroemeria symbolizes “devotion,” ranunculus “radiant charm,” tulip “perfect love,” and stock “lasting love”.

Some Valentines celebrate the contemporary and gravitate toward an arrangement like this one with trendy metallic accents. Elegant cymbidium orchids and spray roses are surrounded by foliage with eye-catching whispers of gold in a compact design.
