5 Reasons To Send November ’15

November is all about enjoying time with family, attitude of gratitude and turkey! Here are five holidays to celebrate this month with the ones you love.

1. Forget-Me-Not-Day – November 10th

Often we take for granted the people present in our lives, so this day is to make us remember family, friends and loved ones. Perhaps you want to recognize a relative you haven’t seen in years or an old high school friend? Flowers are the perfect way to let them know “you are always on my mind.”

2. Veteran’s Day – November 11th

This day is dedicated to everyone who has served in the United States military. If you know a veteran, make sure to say a big “Thank You” for their service. Thinking about doing something special? Flowers will certainly bring a smile to their face.

3. Loosen Up, Lighten Up Day (LuLu) – Novemer 14th

Today loosen up and lighten up! The daily routine can be tiring, frustrating and stressful. Let it go and help others lighten up too! Have a friend or relative that needs to lay back and relax? Nothing better than a beautiful flower arrangement to create a stress-free environment in any home or office.

4. Beautiful Day – November 20th

The origin of this day is a complete mystery, giving us the opportunity to give it our own meaning. Perhaps a beautiful day consists of a pretty flower bouquet to make this day extra special!

5. Thanksgiving – November  26th

There are times in which we forget to express gratitude. Today, make it a point to say “Thank You” for everything good in your life. Headed to a Thanksgiving dinner? Make sure to bring the host a beautiful arrangement in a basket or cornucopia to add the finishing touch to their dinner table.

Happy November! Visit your local florist for ideas on creating the perfect floral arrangement for the occasion of your choice!

Flower Spotlight: Wheat

Wheat is not only good for making bread, but can also be used for decoration. Here is a brief history and ideas for making beautiful fall arrangements using this grain!

History & Origins

Wheat is a cereal grain grown more than any other crop in the world. It is believed that wheat originated in southwest Asia, but now grows in almost every state of the U.S. Wheat is a mix between three different species of grass and is dated back to about 10,000 B.C. The grain has been a source of food since the very beginning of civilization and continues to play a big role in today’s society.

Availability

Wheat can be found anywhere, especially this fall season. Dried wheat automatically give any type of arrangement a touch of “fall glow.” We tend to only think about flowers as centerpiece arrangements, yet this little grain has continued to trend on its own in the wedding scene. Mix arrangements with lavender, fall colored flowers and herbs like chamomile for a more dashing look.

If you have an idea in mind, don’t hesitate to run it by your local florist! Even something as unthinkable as a grain can make a long lasting impression on your special day or as a unique fall arrangement!
