For many high school students, this much-anticipated day is the first big social event of the school year. For college students and alumni, the big game and the many social events surrounding homecoming are an opportunity to reconnect with old friends and celebrate the big game.

Flowers have long held a place in the homecoming celebration. From the “football mums” for sprit week, lush bouquets of flowers for the queen and her court to the corsages and boutonnières for the dance, homecoming is in full autumn bloom.

Depending on where you reside in the country, your homecoming rituals may vary, but one consistent component is flowers. And really, what better way to show off school sprint than with corsages, football mums and roses?

Let’s take a closer look of some the staples when it comes to homecoming flowers.  Read More

Valentine’s Day - Photo Courtesy The Rittners School of Floral Design, BostonThe origins of Valentine’s Day can be traced back to both ancient Roman and ancient Christian traditions. The holiday is associated with the Roman Lupercalia (a fertility festival) and to Christian Saint(s) who had romantic legends associated with that name.

Valentine’s Day is most often perceived as a celebration between lovers sending each other tokens of affection. While men buy mostly for romantic reasons, women use Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to show they care to mothers, friends, children, as well as their sweethearts. Women even treat themselves on Valentine’s Day.

Flowers, hearts and cupids are traditional symbols of love and affection. While the heart is an essential part of our circulatory system, it has long been associated with our emotions and has become symbolic of love and romance. Cupid, known through mythology as the god of love and desire, has come down to us as a chubby little cherub who likes to shoot arrows that inflame desire. Your florist can incorporate hearts and cupids into your Valentine’s Day gifts.   Read More
