And let’s not for get those poor mamas, who’s little chicks are leaving the nest for the first time. Make this time easier on everyone with flowers!

Match Your College Style

Flowers do more than just enhance our mood, their presence in a new place can really make it feel like home. Choose flowers in colors that will match your dorms furnishings. No matter what your colors or style, flowers are the perfect accent to any decor.

  • Bright and Cheery? Try a bouquet of Gerbera daisies in an array of fun summer colors.
  • Vintage Chic? Go for dusty pink roses, old-fashioned baby’s breath, and unique garden-flower accents.
  • Going Green? Choose an all-green floral design, with natural branches or willow
  • Pretty in Pink? Choose a variety of flowers all in bright shades of pink, accent with touches of tiny white flowers.

No matter what your style, your local florist will be able to create something specifically-YOU to bring your new home-away-from-home together.

Sorority FlowersShow Your Team Spirit

Often times florists near colleges carry collegiate gifts and accessories. Have your florist create something to show off your team spirit or Greek affiliations. Have the flower arrangement created in a container you can use afterwards, such as a team-spirit travel mug. You will be able to carry and use your gift throughout the school year and remember those important first days of being on your own.

Make A Lasting Friend – Choose A Houseplant

One more option to adding some ‘life’ to your dorm room, is to make friends with a houseplant. In most cases, this is the closest thing you’ll have in a dorm to a pet. A houseplant is a welcomed companion to dorm dwelling. You can find houseplants that fit with every personality, but for most college freshmen, choose one that is super-easy to care for. You can decorate your houseplants with new containers to match your dorm’s decor, and even use it as a tiny Christmas tree for the holidays. Houseplants make great college companions!

Don’t Forget Mom!

Back to school time might be even more stressful for mom than it is for students. Her baby is venturing out on her own for the first time. This is a good time for mom to take some time for herself (while keeping that cell phone handy, just in case her baby needs her!) So mom – Have a spa day! Order yourself flowers that are just right for YOU!  Add a glass of wine to this mix, and you’ll be just fine mom!
