June Blog Spotlight: Whistlestop Florist

Blog Header

This month’s blog spotlight comes to us from Whistlestop Florist in East Syracuse, NY. They are a long-established florist, and the landmark building in which they operate has been a florist shop since 1951. It was lovingly renovated in 1993, and over the years this little building has become a destination shop in the Syracuse area. So let’s check out an excerpt from their blog!

Whistlestop Florist Blog

Skaneateles Wedding of Allison and Kevan

Details, Details, Details. That is what I tell Brides. Pick a theme and stick with it. .And if you can’t stay on track, then hire someone to help you.

Allison and Kevan worked with Kate Brown of Lovewell Celebration Design and together they created a standout event.

Why It Works

There is quite a bit more to this post, and it is full of amazing photos. The post works beautifully because they introduce the event at the top, and then allow the pictures to tell the story for them. There’s no need to elaborate with words because nothing they could say would have more impact for the viewer than the gorgeous visuals. Then, at the end they list all the vendors who’s work appeared in the photos with links to their web pages. This allows their readers to not only know they are a quality florist, but also that these other companies do quality work as well.

Great job, Whistlestop Florist!

Be sure to come back next month and see who our next Blog Spotlight will feature!

May Blog Spotlight: North Raleigh Florist

For May, we are highlighting North Raleigh Florist in Raleigh, NC. From looking through the history, this florist does a great job of updating their blog regularly, and this is important because it keeps readers engaged. They do a mix of informative and promotional posts, ensuring that their reader gets value from reading.

The post we’re looking at today is talking about the different arrangement done for the Palahmuk Wedding. This particular post relies more on photos to do the talking, and it works well for a florist blog. Without further ado, North Raleigh Florist!

Palahmuk Wedding

Summer Weddings Are Filled With Bright Colors. Check Out These Beautiful Bouquets In Hot Pink From Amanda Palahmuk’s Wedding at Bedford Club House.


Groom and Groomsmen Boutonnieres

A full size rose for the groom and spray roses for the groomsmen are great choices. They are similar but they still have a different look.


Bridal Bouquet

Different Shades of Pink Accent this bouquet that have the gerbers and lilies as its focal point and roses and greens to accent.


Bridesmaid Bouquets

The Power of the Photo

The gorgeous bouquets and boutonnieres portrayed here do plenty to capture the eye and keep the reader interested. The floral industry is very much a visual industry and this blog post works well in making that evident. It also chooses to use original designs and not stock photos. Stock photos are nice, but original designs show off the florist’s talent and lets their readers know exactly what they are capable of achieving.

Come back next month and see who we spotlight next!

April Blog Spotlight: Lavender Hill Florals

This month we are showcasing a wonderful and classic take on the florist blog. The comments under the photos are mine, and I’m only going to use some of the photos here. If you’d like to see the entire post, click here!

Lavender Hill Florals

We just finished setting up Abby and Ted’s wedding at the Galt House hotel in downtown Louisville. She picked some beautiful spring colors, and she couldn’t have had better spring weather for the big day! Check out some of the photos below.

Lavender Hill9

I love how they use the camera to give a beautiful scene an artistic flair.

Lavender Hill4

Doing good work is paramount, but it is of penultimate importance to take good photos of that work. This bouquet is gorgeous and the high quality photo allows us to see that perfectly.

Lavender Hill6

This is a gorgeous centerpiece. Elegant and simple yet arresting.

Lavender Hill5

Again, they use the camera to excellent effect here. The boutonnieres are beautiful as well.

Lavender Hill8

More centerpieces, and here they are allowing the work to speak for itself. Perfect.

A Visual Emphasis

A florist creates visually stimulating pieces, and as such their work is best appreciated through a visual medium. Lavender Hill Florals uses their blog to showcase the work they’ve done for weddings and other special events through expert photography and beautiful HD photos. This works because they can update the blog each time they have a new project. It guarantees their newest work is always on display.

This also allows visitors to see examples of the florist’s actual work and not obviously canned images. This window into the florist’s talent is beneficial to the customer, allowing them to see exactly what florist and staff can accomplish. The transparency is also beneficial to the florist. Showcasing work as impressive as this is never a bad idea!
