November brings beautiful fall colors, a return to cooler temperatures and the one holiday set aside solely for giving thanks and expressing gratitude. And is there a better way to offer a heartfelt ‘thank you’ than with an elegant floral arrangement? We certainly don’t think so.
So get on the phone, hop on over to our website or just walk down to the shop on the corner, but however you do it, make sure you contact your local florist for amazing Thanksgiving florals!
Best Reasons to Send Flowers in November
November is a great month for flowers, (so is every other month, but I digress) and we’ve got some great reasons to visit your local flower shop!
#1 Thanksgiving Day – November 27th – There are so many reasons to buy flowers on this day of thanks. Need a magnificent centerpiece for your Thanksgiving feast? Looking for the perfect gift for your host/hostess? Maybe you just want to decorate your home in the spirit of the holiday. Whatever the reason, flowers are a must.
#2. November Birthdays – Flowers make a perfect birthday gift. Who doesn’t love natural beauty? And don’t forget the wonder of a living plant. Your local florist has everything you need to make any November birthday a great one!
October Flower Spotlight: Alstroemeria
These gorgeous flowers are native to South America though some varieties have now been naturalized to the US. There are two species of Alstroemeria, one native to Chile and one to Brazil. The Chile species grows in winter while the Brazil species grows in summer. That makes it the perfect flower for our October spotlight as this month falls squarely between the two!
The Alstroemeria is often associated with friendship because of the way its leaves grow. They grow upside down, twisting and turning evoking the twists, turns and growth that friends experience over time. It can also mean prosperity and fortune. This flower is often found in everything from bridal bouquets to corsages and boutonnieres. It is also the perfect gift for a friend or someone going to a job interview or embarking on a new venture.
