Summer is a beautiful time of year, and that makes it the perfect time for flowers!
As the temperature heats up and Mother Nature spreads her wings, florist shops are filled to bursting with beautiful summer blooms. It’s the perfect time to stop by and pick up a creative arrangement for your significant other or even for yourself. After all, there’s nothing like fresh cut flowers adorning your breakfast table or sitting by your bedside when you wake. So head on out to your local florist shop and pick up some summer sunshine!
Best Reasons to Send Flowers in July
Summer is finally in full swing and July offers plenty of excuses to have a good time. Besides the perfect weather, cool breezes and backyard barbecues, here are five additional excuses to shower your loved ones with flowers!
#1 – Parent’s Day – July 27th – Yes, we’ve already had Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, but Parent’s Day celebrates “the role of parents in the rearing of children.” So let your parents know they reared you right with a lovely bouquet or other arrangement.
#2. July Birthdays – Do you have a friend or loved one with a birthday in July? There is no better way to say, “Happy Birthday” than with a gorgeous arrangement from your local florist. You can get most anything you like, and they can even create it based on a theme of your choosing!
#3. Summertime Fun – All Month Long – If the reasons above don’t satisfy your need for fantastic florals, don’t forget to celebrate the beauty and fun of summer. Flowers make some of the best decoration, and no backyard barbecue is complete without some fabulous floral accents.
Don’t Miss Out On Parent’s Day!
Parent’s Day is the fourth Sunday in July, and that means it’s just around the corner. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to honor the ones who raised you with a beautiful arrangement from your local florist!

Flower Spotlight: Hydrangeas
The hydrangea is a beautiful flower that can be found all over the US during the spring and summer months. It is native to eastern Asian countries such as China and Japan, but it grows well throughout the Americas. The hydrangea is normally a shrub growing about three to nine feet high with lovely blue, pink and even sometimes white flowers.
