June Newsletter: Celebrate Proud Papas

Father's Day Flowers

Father’s Day is June 17th, time to celebrate your proud papa.

Dad has been proud of you from the moment you were a glimmer in your mother’s eye. From the day you came into this world, your father has loved you with all of his heart. He might not be the type of papa to show it, but you know it’s there. He has supported you all along the way of your life. No matter where your journey has led you, dad has kept a watchful eye.

Say “Thank You” this Father’s Day with a special gift. For the dad who has everything, flowers can be created to match any style dad: from the outdoor-lover to the all-business dad, your florist can create something truly personal. Flowers and gifts from your local flower shop are especially great for those living long-distances from their dads. You can arrange something perfectly fitting for your dad with the help of a local florist online. Use our handy local florist finder to find a shop near dad.

5 Tips For Savoring The Remaining Days of Spring

The last days of spring are upon us; summer officially begins on June 20th.

Spring Green FlowersWhile it already feels like summer in a lot of places, it’s not official yet! Why not celebrate the remaining days of spring while you can? This year is going by quick enough, it’s time to settle down and pay more attention to the changing seasons.

  • Ordering Spring Flowers – You know I have to suggest it, but it’s true! Nothing shouts SPRING more than spring flowers. Don’t think you have to send them to anyone either, order them as a treat for you and your family. However, if you have a friend who needs a boost in spirits, spring flowers are the way to go!
  • Spring Picnic – While you can enjoy these in summer, it’s often too hot. Spring is the perfect time for picnics and family get-togethers.
  • Spring Cleaning – This isn’t necessarily fun, but very spring! Cleaning helps us take the load off, both literally and mentally. Clearing clutter in our homes helps in so many aspects of our life. Plus you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy summer and not have to worry about cleaning.
  • Makeover Madness – Spring clean doesn’t have to stop at the house; treat yourself to a makeover, facial, pedicure, haircut or any other pampering. This will make you feel youthful, energized and ready for summer!
  • Cloud Parade – Take some time to get outside! While temps are still comfortable, take a blanket, towel or yoga mat outside. Lay back and watch the parade of clouds go by. Invite friends or family to join you and challenge each others’ imagination by spotting shapes in the clouds.

While these are just a few suggestions, there are hundreds of ways you can enjoy this time of year. However you do it, enjoy yourself! Take the time to stop and smell the roses. Don’t let spring pass you by without taking full advantage of it!

FSN at the Louisiana State Florist Convention

Two from our FSN team had the chance to attend the 2012 Louisiana State Florist Convention. They had a blast and met a lot of great florists from Louisiana and the surrounding areas.
Ken from FSN and Tommy from Tommy's Flowers, Lafayette LA Flower Arrangement at Louisiana State Florist Association
The above flower arrangement was designed by Tommy (also pictured above in the light blue shirt) of Tommy’s Flowers in Lafayette, LA. And what an impressive design it was. The top portion included some of the biggest lilies and hydrangeas you’ve ever seen! There was also a small arrangement built inside the vase for added interest. All-together it was a stunning piece of floral art. Thanks so much, Tommy!
