Discover Fall Treasures In Flowers

October: Discover Fall Treasures

This year seems to have flown by. Can you believe it will be October in just a couple of days? For October, we’ve chosen Fall Treasures to be our favorite flower arrangement of the month. It’s the perfect arrangement to discover the fantastic flowers of fall. Sunflowers, roses, carnations, and snapdragons – all in the harmonious hues of the season.

Fall Treasures can be sent to yourself or a friend as a little pick-me-up to get a jump-start on the fall season. I know what you’re thinking, “I can’t send flowers to myself..” Of course you can! Sometimes it pays to treat yourself once in a while, especially before you jump head first into the upcoming holiday season.

Of course, sending flowers to a friend or loved one is almost doubly rewarding. If you know someone who could use a fresh start this fall, why send this arrangement and let them discover Fall Treasures for themselves?

Get Your Spook On with Halloween Flowers

Halloween Flowers

Who doesn’t LOVE Halloween. It’s become one of our favorite holidays — the costumes, the candy, the fun! Florists are no exception when it comes to Halloween Fun.

The above arrangements are just a few examples of what florists have to offer at Halloween. Maybe you’re Halloween party’s color scheme is not the usual orange and black — no worries, a florist can create any style to match your Halloween decor! Oh, and if you order early, let them wilt just in time for your festivities to add to the creepiness. You can even cover them in cobwebs! Think outside the pumpkin!

Hey! What’s THAT Flower?

We’ve all gotten flowers before and tried our best to guess what kind of flowers they are. Roses, lilies, carnations… those are the easy ones. What about the more-rare flowers that florists use? Have you ever received an arrangement with a unique flower that made you call your florist just to ask “Hey! What was THAT flower?”

We polled our florists on Facebook and they told us which flowers gets the MOST curious attention from their customers..

Think Pink This OctoberThink Pink - Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the time of year the whole world turns PINK! Because breast cancer can almost always be cured with early detection, it’s very important to keep up awareness. This is why we THINK PINK in October.

How can you help promote awareness this October? The first step is easy – wear pink for awareness. Until there is a cure, breast cancer awareness and early detection is the key. With early detection, we all win!

Real life heros: If you know someone who has championed their fight with breast cancer, send them Think Pink flowers this October to let them know how happy you are to have them in your life.

Keep your vase filled with water! All flower and foliage stems should be submerged. Flowers stay fresher, longer when they can get a drink. If your flowers came in a basket or other container with foam, add fresh water every day.
