Got the Father’s Day Blues?

Father’s Day is just around the corner; you have been diligently searching and constantly on the lookout as you quest for dear ole dad’s perfect gift. You’ve traveled all over town, explored store after store, but still can’t find anything original, something that you haven’t bought at least a hundred times before.

Is it time to just give up and buy another tie?

Of course not. This is the man who taught you how to ride a bike, bait a hook, throw a strike and score a touchdown. He paced the floor in worry when you were sick, cheered you on as you rounded the baseline, and consoled you after your first break-up. After all dad has done, and continues to do, doesn’t he deserve more than the same gift yet again?  Isn’t it time to think outside the box?

There’s still one store you have yet to visit, one place that didn’t immediately cross your mind. That’s right, I’m talking about your local florist!  I can hear you thinking, “Flowers? For MY dad?”  Sure!  Why not?  Your local florist isn’t just there for Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and first dates; they work hard all year ’round to ensure that they have just what you need and want for any occasion. Father’s Day is no exception!

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…]

FSN’s Favorite Arrangement for June

June's Father's Day Arrangement

If May is for Moms, then June is unmistakably for DAD! Not only is Father’s Day in June (16th), but so is the beginning of summer — the season where Dads shine! Cookouts, BBQs, fishing, camping, sports and all of the fun outdoor activities make summers perfect for dads everywhere. This month’s favorite arrangement is Flowers of Distinction, a perfect design for Father’s Day.

What better way to thank Dad for all the summer fun than with fresh flowers for Father’s Day?! I know what you’re thinking, “My dad doesn’t want flowers.” Your dad just might surprise you. If your dad is into fishing or other activities in nature, why not send something made of fresh wildflowers or something with branches and twigs. This could be especially good if your dad is no longer able to get out and enjoy the summers like he used to. Flowers never fail to put a smile on someone’s face, and Dad is no exception!

This June, when you’re sending flowers to your dad, remember to always, always, always send from a real local florist! (Need a card message? Visit our Father’s Day Card Messages page for ideas.)

This Father’s Day, I’m Sending Dad Flowers

Always A Daddy's GirlThe scent of roses at a fresh market or at the table of a nice restaurant sends me back to Valentine’s Day in third grade when I received my first bouquet of roses. Psychologists believe that specific words can evoke certain emotions in the reader. A simple word like “smile” can make one think of a sunny day in the park. I believe flowers can do the same. Red roses remind me of my first hand delivered bouquet of flowers.

Always Daddy’s Little Girl

The bouquet was given to me by the most important man in my life, my father. Dad was a pilot for Children’s Hospital when I was younger. His usual mornings started at 5:30am, when I was long asleep in my bed in the next room. On this particular morning I heard the blow dryer, part of my mom’s usual morning beauty routine, and the coffee maker’s sizzling drops. To my disappointment, I did not hear Dad come in and say goodbye.

Mom woke me up with her usual perky singing of the “Green Acres Theme Song.” I asked for my usual five more minutes, but that day Mom quickly flicked on the overhead light. She jumped out of the doorway to reveal my Daddy holding a bouquet of twelve beautiful roses. I can still feel my cheeks cramping from the delighted smile.

Roses for Father's Day“I will always be your Valentine…”

He knelt beside my bed and whispered in my ear, “I will always be your Valentine. No matter who walks into or out of your life; remember that.” After eleven years, Dad still sends me a bouquet of a dozen roses each year. The sight of a bouquet takes me back to that morning.

This Father’s Day, I’m sending Dad flowers.

It’s your turn to start a new tradition in your family. Deliver your next memory with the help of your local florist.

Think Flowers Aren’t For Dad? Think Again!

There seems to be a strange, unnecessary stigma floating around flowers for men. Why do you think that is? Do men not like flowers — of course they do! (No one grows more roses than my dad!) Maybe we think they’d be embarrassed receiving something so beautiful?  The trick is to find the RIGHT design to match your Pops!

Out of the Woods

This is the perfect choice for a nature-loving Dad. It uses sticks, twigs and moss to create a rustic feel any outdoorsman would appreciate. If you really want to man-it-up, as special instructions, ask your florist to use more or only green, brown and his favorite colored flowers.

Fisherman Flowers for Father's Day

Flowers of Distinction

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?!)

High Style - Father's Day Flowers

High-Style Horsetail

This geometric wonder would be ideal for the stylish dad. Just think, if you’re dad is an architect, graphic designer or just likes style, this would be a perfect choice. I could see this design sitting on the desk of a doctor, lawyer or any sleek and sophisticated business owner.

If your florist does not carry these items in the store, bring something in for them to incorporate into the elaborate, futuristic arrangement. Let your florist be as creative as they like by coming up with something new and unique that isn’t available in an “ordinary” flower arrangement or gift basket!
  • Grillin’ It Up: most dads are known as “King of the Grill.” A basket filled with grilling essentials and recipes is perfect for this guy.
  • Sports Galore: what father doesn’t have at least one sport he follows with the utmost dedication? Your florist can create a beautiful arrangement with flowers matching the team’s colors. Include some memorabilia for that team/sport or take tickets to your florist and ask her to tuck them into the arrangement.
  • Food, Food, and More Food: for the dad who loves to indulge himself! They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach; curb his appetite with a basket overflowing with gourmet foods. Your local florist may be willing to create a fruit/nut basket or even use chocolates and/or candy.
  • Popular Pasttimes: fishing, camping, golfing, running, bicycling, hiking… the list goes on! Dads find many ways to spend their spare time– what does your dad like to do? Most of these hobbies are nature related; ask the florist to create a rustic arrangement… perfect for dads that are on the go.
  • Play that Funky Music: music loving dads will go crazy for this theme! Choose a favorite artist, genre or decade to inspire the florist and let them voice their creative expression!  This fun theme could include tickets to a local concert or a CD tucked into the arrangement.
  • Cultural Buff: this guy is up to date on the latest and greatest movies, books, art and more.

Personalized Food BasketTip: What ever basket you choose, discuss the options with your local florist to create the perfect custom gift basket or arrangement.  They may have their own creative ideas to carry on the theme with the container, basket and accent pieces.
