Whether you need to impress new clients or stimulate creative thinking, flowers are your go-to addition. Whether you own or work for a small business, or you’re looking to dress up your weekly book club get-togethers, your local florist can help!Flowers For Business Meetings

Flowers To Impress

It’s important to put your best foot forward and leave nothing to chance when meeting with a big client, especially for the first time. The addition of flowers to your office, conference room or convention hall can really brighten up the space and set the tone of your company. It shows your client just how important and respected they are.

Hosting an open house or other event? Use fresh flowers to take your interior decor to the next level.

Flowers For Brand Awareness

For companies that want to extend brand awareness in a whole new way, bring flowers into your meetings in the colors of your business’ brand. Flowers come in almost any color you can think of, and most florists can use a special type of paint, if needed, to get the right color for you. Talk to your local florist about your brand and colors. Show them your logo and business style and they will be able to create something specifically tailored to your business.

Business branded flowers are also a great idea for trade shows and other conferences where you want your business to stand out! Flowers are also a great conversation starter. When the event is over, you can give out flowers as a souvenir.

Houseplants For Earth Day: Reminders To Use The 3 R’s!

Earth Day is a special holiday which we celebrate our wonderful Mother Earth. Everything we are, we owe to the earth and it’s resources. The wood that’s in our houses, the metal in our cars, the glass in our windows, even the plastic in our water bottles are made from resources we’ve mastered here on earth. This is why Earth Day is such an important celebration; to remind us to be thankful of what we have and to practice the 3 R’s (reduce, reuse, recycle!) to ensure our resources for future generations.


English Ivy HouseplantA great way to celebrate Earth Day is to bring the wonderful creations of earth indoors. A houseplant is a great way to remind yourself to practice the 3 R’s daily around the house! Getting into a habit of earth friendliness is always a good thing. In addition to their eco-goodness, houseplants are a beautiful addition to any indoor space. By the use of color and texture you can instantly change the look and mood of a room!

How To Select The Perfect Houseplant

When selecting your houseplant, consider the conditions of the room or area they will be growing. What type of lighting does it have? How is the humidity? All are factors needed for your plant to be comfortable and thrive. You should also consider how much care and time you have available to give to your houseplant. Some plants are happy as they are and require very little supervision, but some require much more care. When buying a houseplant from a quality source, such as your local florist, explain to them what you can offer your houseplant and they will suggest the perfect new plant just for you!

FSN also offers a great resource when it comes to houseplants. Our Houseplant Care & Information page has many of the common houseplants listed with their care and information explained by our experts.

Make YOUR Week At The Office Extra Special With Flowers

Unless Monday is your day off, it’s rare anyone ever looks forward to heading back to work after the weekend. Working an 8 to 5 job, it’s easy to get a case of the Mondays every once in a while. Do you know what the best cure for the Mondays is? Why, spring flowers of course!

Spring flowers lift spirits and put you in a good mood, plus their beauty is extraordinary and will enhance your desk and office like nothing else.

Having flowers delivered is always a fantastic and memorable occasion, no matter who sends them. Flowers don’t have to always be sent to us by our other halves; there are NO rules that say we can’t send flowers to ourselves. What better way to treat yourself than enjoying flowers for a week at work?

So whether you are rewarding yourself for a job-well-done or simply pampering yourself like the diva you deserve to be, flowers are the perfect start to a great week ahead!
Here are some beautiful spring choices to get you started:

What Is A Good Plant For An Office

Ask the Expert: Is potted daffodil OK in office without window?
I want to get a potted daffodil, but not sure if it will do well in an office without a window. What kind of light will it need? How much watering?
And what kind of plant would do well in such an office?
Thanks.  Joanna



Potted daffodils would not be my choice for an office plant.  Why? Because as a potted plant they are short lived.  When I send potted daffodils to someone, I assume that they will enjoy them for a short period of time and then plant them in their garden.  If you want a plant that will do well in your office try a Aglaonema (Chinese Evergreen), Anthurium (Flamingo Flower) or a Beaucarnea (Ponytail Palm). There are other houseplants that will do well in an office such as yours. However, I have personally grown the above plants in an office without a window and they do quite well. The fluorescent light seems to be enough to sustain these plants. I usually water them once a week (the ponytail can go a little longer without water). I think you will enjoy one of these plants in your office. Good luck and keep me posted.

Cubicle Dwellers Take Cheer From Flowers

I have spent many an hour in a cubicle. I’ve undergone those Dilbert™-infused moments where the world seems to be about four feet by four feet and the “earth is round” theory seems invalid at best. Fear not, brave cubicle dwellers. Take heart and take cheer from what I have found to be the freshest solution yet.

I am among those who think that pictures of friends and family help time to pass more smoothly but there is one other thing that returns the mind to fancy. Flower arrangements (my favorites always include carnations) are a breath of fresh air. I especially love receiving flowers at work for my desk. Most ladies and many men are like this. We love the attention, the design and welcome the change to our sometimes stifling containment.

Even if you sit in the corner office (kudos!), there are still times when flowers and plants liven up the place. Jamie J. Adams and I discuss often how the plants in her office are progressing, why they are helpful, and how her extensive nursery background helps her keep them more fresh and lively than any other green thumb.

The simple fact of it is that cubicles and offices need something fresh to keep the creative process rejuvenated. Whether crunching numbers or authoring a novella, every office cubicle needs something pretty to jump-start the mind into refreshing thought.

Know a coworker that needs a little pep in their step? Send some flowers! You’ll love the feeling of helping and he or she will love the reward.
