New Baby Flowers

Nothing is more exciting than a baby entering into the world! The new parents have spent countless hours preparing the perfect baby room and making sure that they have thousands of diapers and everything they will need. There is so much joy in this special time but there is also a new set of challenges. Being the caretakers of a newborn is a heavy responsibility. Sleep is lost and adjusting to a new routine is hard. This time of transition is a great opportunity for you to send your love and support to the new parents.

By now the new parents have plenty of diapers and baby wipes and really just need some encouragement! A fresh flower arrangement is a great way to send your love. Picture their delighted faces when they receive your unexpected gift. They will feel relieved and thankful knowing that they have your support. Every time the parents walk past the beautiful blooms they will be reminded of your kind and loving heart.  [Read more…]

FSN Baby Shower: It’s A Boy!

We had yet another baby shower at the Flower Shop Network offices this week. (Man, there must be something in the water down here.) This time we pulled out the punch for Kylie who works in our administration department. The refreshments were delicious and the gifts were plentiful, so let’s take a look at all the goodies!

cake and arrangement

Blue punch, blue cake … It’s a BOY!


Beautiful afghan handcrafted by our very own Loranne. Great job!


Knit caps and some comfy-looking onesies. Gotta keep that winter baby warm.


It’s bath time! A baby bather and wonderfully soft towels.


You can never have too many bibs, that’s for sure. Babies go through those like water through a sieve. Or is that juice?


An entire outfit, and looks like it will be big enough to start next winter off the right way.


Will this be grandma’s favorite outfit? Nana, nana, nana, nana … Batman!


It’s hard to tell, but that is a combo crib, playpen and changing table all in one. Wow!


Congratulations Kylie!

We’re not done yet, folks. We’ve got plenty more events scheduled between now and the end of the year. Check back tomorrow for our Thanksgiving feast!

An FSN Baby Shower!

FSN’s SEO Specialist and blog contributor Kelly Wheatley and her husband Bart are preparing to welcome their first child! (The doctor tells us it’s a boy.) And Flower Shop Network was excited to honor them with a baby shower. Don’t worry, we aren’t going to leave you without some excellent photos of the event. So sit back, relax and enjoy!

Kelly and Bart

And what Flower Shop Network event would be complete without the customary arrangement? But enough about the preliminaries, lets get to the good stuff!


Yay, baby clothes! They’re so adorable!


Even more onesies!


Oh yeah, baby is gonna have a blast with that! I need one of those for my own living room.


We gotta get dad in a few of these too right?


Books and toys! Does it get any better? I know my kids don’t think so.


Sippy cups! The #1 recommended way to keep your kids hydrated while eliminating potential water spills.


And last but certainly not least, a seat guardian. Keeps the baby seat from slipping. Safety first! And just look at those smiling faces.

We all had fun and enjoyed the cake and punch while Kelly and Bart got lots of lovely and very useful things. But even with all of that, there was still one thing missing … the baby! Word is it should arrive sometime in mid-August. I’m practically giddy with excitement so I can’t even imagine how the new parents-to-be must feel! All I can say is, Kelly better bring it by the office soon. I’ll try to snap a pic and update this post when that happens. Keep an eye on us!

Delivering Good Cheer Isn’t Just For The Stork

New Baby Flower Delivery

A new baby and the celebration of birth is always a delightful occasion. Friends and family come from all over just to pinch those new little cheeks. If you’re going to meet and greet a new little life, don’t show up empty handed — bring flowers! Flowers have been used in celebrations for centuries and are a great representation of growing life. They are also an especially great gift when you are too far to welcome new baby in person, you can trust a local florist to deliver them right to the new mom and dad.

Choosing The Best Flowers For New Baby


Traditionally, flower colors for baby girls are pastel pinks and for little boys, baby blue. Although these colors are still loved and accepted,  these days you can choose almost any color for new baby. Many new parents are choosing "Congratulations Son" New Baby Flowersout-of-the-box colors for baby showers and nurseries. If you know what color the nursery is, or just want to send something different, don’t hesitate!

Trendy Baby Colors Include:

  • Lime Green
  • White
  • Pastel Purple
  • Bright Purple
  • Pastel Yellow
  • Bright Yellow
  • Cream
  • Teal

Flowers for Baby

Traditionally, new baby flowers are mostly roses, daisies and carnations. Again, now you can pretty much choose any type of flower. It may be a good idea to choose flowers that don’t cause allergic reactions and don’t have a strong smell. Choose flowers with heavy, large pollens, since it’s unlikely that such big, heavy pollens will find their way into anyone’s eyes, mouth or nose, such as: hydrangeas, roses, daisies, snapdragons, sunflowers, and daffodils. Talk to your florist about any concerns you may have.

No New Baby Flowers? You’ve GOT To Be Kidding Me!

My brother’s son was born on June 22nd. It was a bit earlier than we’d expected but we were all happy to finally have him here! I left work and raced to the hospital about an hour away. I found out their room number and walked in. I was expecting “New Baby” flowers, balloons, baby gift baskets, etc. Something! Anything! What did I find?? Nothing!


I was surprised, a little embarassed because I hadn’t been able to call ahead for a gift delivery, and quite unimpressed with the calibre of friends who would just show up empty handed for no reason! My sister had already been there and brought lunch. My other brother wanted to wait til they made it home to visit. All sets of parents were acting like normal grandparents. I showed up with camera in hand and expected to have to push away gifts to get a shot of the baby. Unfortunately, no. Ugh.

There is a happy ending. I moved an hour and a half away on the baby’s one week birthday. Not wanting to leave without seeing my nephew, I visited him and his parents the day before. Come to find out, their house was filled with baby stuff and baby gifts. Much to my surprise, a bouquet of new baby flowers was on the kitchen counter. I was shocked and appalled that no one had considered baby gifts when we were at the hospital. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that someone had taken the time to have new baby flowers delivered with a stuffed animal. It was adorable!

I know for sure that the next time one of my friends or family has a baby, I will call ahead and have flowers delivered. I do NOT want to repeat that experience.

Rock A Bye Baby: Top New Baby Card Messages

My best friend recently had a baby. My brother and sister in law are about to welcome a son also. It’s hard to stop the maternal inclination that comes from being around wonderful women like this. It’s also hard to plan a baby shower without thinking about new baby gifts. Of course, it’s easy to opt for the cute gifts with the “ooo” and “awww” factor. It’s just as easy to be practical and get Mommy gifts that she’ll need when little baby arrives. However, the best new baby gift is the one that isn’t about the baby at all-it’s about mommy.

Celebrating the birth of a child, just like with every other occasion, flowers are a great gift for making the woman feel special. Friends of the daddy? Send flowers and you’ll be in momma’s good graces also! The part that most people get stuck on is the card message. It can be difficult to put sentiments into words with new baby card messages. For those of us rather handicapped in regard to this particular ability, the following list makes it easy to say congratulations. Local florists have spoken. Here’s what their top 10 new baby card messages have to say.

Lullabye & Goodnight:  Top 10 New Baby Card Messages

Celebrate New Babies With These Great Gifts!

My sister-in-law is having a baby boy this month. Another friend of mine is expecting a daughter around the same time. Not wanting to show partiality, I’ve decided to feature two flower arrangements this month.

Spring seems like baby season to me. The birth of new flowers coincides with the birth of precious little arrivals. I love children so these new baby flower arrangements stood out to me when I first came across them. After a second and third glimpse, I could no longer pass up sharing them with you.

Ok, I’ll stop stalling.

"Congratulations Daughter" New Baby Flowers

Baby Caleb is going to make me Aunt Brynn for the first time. I can hardly wait! Because I’m partial to little boys anyway, his gift has to be extra special. What I love about the “Congratulations Son” arrangement is that it’s a cool gift for both Caleb and his parents. There’s flowers for mom and a toy for baby! Plus the toy becomes a really sweet keepsake that he can keep for years. I can just hear him now. “This was the toy that I came home with from the hospital on the day I was born.” Ah, to know that I sent that gift warms my heart.

While I will not be “Aunt Brynn” to my friend’s little girl, I’ll definitely be a big part of her life. Her mother and I have been friends for years and will stay that way until we die. I can’t just let her go through child birth without a gift! I love the “Congratulations Son” arrangement so much that I was super excited to see the “Congratulations Daughter” flowers. What a treat for me because I know that both baby and momma will smile when the gift is delivered.

Ahhhh. Welcome, Spring.
