Searching for a Father’s Day Gift? Ask the Professionals!

Father’s Day is coming and although he may not show it, your dad is excited to see what his children (or loving spouse) are going to do. Dad’s have feelings too and they like to be recognized for the hard work they do.

Don’t buy him another pack of socks and a tie.
This is the person who taught you how to ride a bike, who held your hand when you broke your arm, who cheered you on as you rounded the baseline and consoled you after your first break-up. After everything dad has done for you, he deserves an amazing gift!

It’s time to think outside of the box.
Yes, I’m talking about your local florist. Florists are professionals at designing customized gifts. They have years of experience at making holidays one to remember. A local florist can be trusted to put together the perfect arrangement to wow your dad.

Customize His Arrangement
Most florists can create an arrangement of flowers with your dad’s favorite team’s colors as well as use themed accessories for any of the different major sports. Want a golf theme? They can do it! Football? You bet. Baseball, basketball, tennis, and hockey? Check, check, check, and check! A quick phone call should answer any questions you have and ensure that you get exactly what you want.

Gift Baskets
What dad wouldn’t like to receive a basket full of their favorite sweets and snacks? Whether salty snacks, chocolate snacks or tasty fruit, your local florist has it! Gift baskets are a great way to compliment a gift you have already purchased, or they can stand on their own merits as a solo gift.

Air-Cleansing Plants
Does dad have a shop, a workbench in the garage, or a man cave?  Nothing helps clean the air in a musty, man-permeated space quite like a living plant.  A plant will give your paterfamilias an actual task to perform so he doesn’t have to simply putter around, and it will provide him with something to talk to when he is working alone. The wide variety of plants available will guarantee that you find something compatible with your dad and his favorite hangout spot.

You can’t get more personal than a flower arrangement designed specifically with your dad in mind. Call your local florist today to see what they can do for you and your dad. You will be pleasantly surprised!

Have A Floral Father’s Day


Father’s Day is coming, and though he may not show it, Dad is very excited to see what his loving children (or loving spouse) are going to do. He may seem uninterested. He may tell you it’s no big deal. Believe me, it’s a bluff. We may not always like to let them shine, but dads have feelings too. Dads like me are happy to be recognized for the hard work we do, and your appreciation makes all the difference in the world to us.

And what’s a beautiful way to show that appreciation? Flowers!

Floral Father’s Day Gifts

  1. Personalized Flowers – When you buy flowers from a local florist, you aren’t stuck choosing from a preselected list of options. Instead, you have the freedom to request a variety of different options and styles that will speak to your dad. Does he have a favorite sports team? Get an arrangement using their colors as a theme!
    And because you chose local, you can ask the florist to incorporate another gift you may have already purchased into the arrangement! If your dad is a NASCAR fan and you’ve bought a model car of his favorite driver, let the florist use that as the focal point of her custom piece. Golf fan? New balls or even tees look fantastic in a gorgeous, hand-designed floral arrangement.
  2. Gift Baskets – There is little better when attempting to please your dad on Father’s Day than a basket full of his favorite snacks. You can get fruit, chocolate, salty goodies, whatever strikes his fancy. And when gift-giving time comes around, you will get the smile you crave. Because what dad doesn’t love to eat?
  3. Living Plants – Does your dad have a shop? Maybe he likes to kick around the garage in the evening and tinker. Regardless of where he does it, if your dad works with greasy tools he needs a live plant to help liven up that smelly work space. It can help clean the air and provide some much needed visual improvement.
    Or maybe your dad is more the office type. Does he spend his work or downtime in front of the computer? Once again, you can’t go wrong with a living plant. It can clean the air in this space as well, and it’s almost no hassle at all to care for!

So don’t forget the first man in your life. Stop by your local florist and give dad a floral Father’s Day.

Father’s Day Game Plan

Every year, it’s easy to let Father’s Day sneak up on you. This year have a game plan! Think your mom is the only one in the house who would appreciate flowers? Guess again. While you might not think your dad would enjoy fresh-cut flowers, consider why he deserves a special gift from the heart. Flowers can express how you really feel.  We’ll help you select something that is perfect for dear old dad and show him that you don’t play favorites when it comes to your parents!

Flower Suggestions For All Types of Dads

The Sports Fan
Does a limited edition jersey constitute dressing up for your dad? Ask your flower shop to represent his favorite team colors. Or start with some bright sunflowers and have the florist work in packaged sunflower seeds for a perfect pre-game snack. Don’t be surprised if he can’t stop singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”

Great Outdoorsman
Whether it is fishing, hiking, or gardening, your father spends his time out in the elements. An arrangement that features some local flora is a great idea. Just ask your florist what is common in the area. Have earth-toned elements like tall cattails, marsh reeds, and unusual seed pods mixed in and this gift will have your dad dreaming of the sun, wind, and water he loves.

Mr. Golf
If “tee time” involves a bag of clubs for your pop, ask your florist if they have anything special for golf fanatics. Chances are they do. Golf inspired creations can be as simple as a design that works in some new tees to adding some fun color to a bucket of golf balls. This reminder at the office will immediately take dad right to that 18th hole. [Read more…]

Fisherman Flowers for Father's Day

There is something about this arrangement that reminds me of fishing. Perhaps it’s the unique leucadendron that looks like a plant you’d see swishing back and forth at the bottom of a lake. Imagine a few fishing lures dangling from the raffia, and you’ve got yourself a fisherman’s dream, if fishermen dreamed in flowers. (Who’s to say they dont?!)
