Picnic Time: Take Time to Smell the Roses

As we grow older, our summers are no longer long days in the sun, and we tend to hope that time will slow down. Now that our youthful days of running around, picking flowers and rope swings by the lake aren’t what they used to be, it’s time to relive these memories by arranging a picnic.

Plan a Pop-up Picnic!

Work and school is stressful, but if there is still some sun left in the day, why not enjoy it?

Enthusiasm BlossomsPlan a surprise date under a shady tree. Picnics combine our favorite things all in one: food, beautiful weather and conversation. You could even surprise your friends with a pop-up picnic! Who doesn’t love a surprise? This is especially good for a quick, yet romantic date. There are several ways to plan a picnic, but for those who are picnic planning-impaired I have a checklist prepared for you.

  • Bring a blanket. Make sure the blanket isn’t very important to you; grass stains can ruin grandmother’s quilt. Make sure the blanket does not have a fluffy texture. Grass, mud, bugs and other, outside items stick to the texture. It is unreasonably hard to wash. The best bet is to go with an old quit.
  • Plan favorite foods. This date is a great way to show how well you pay attention to details. Bring fresh fruit, sandwiches and drinks. P.S. Don’t forget napkins and utensils.
  • A quiet, shady place. The less noisy the environment is, the more conversation. This is the perfect time to let your personality shine through.
  • Picnic flowers. Flowers will make a beautiful centerpiece, this extra touch will lead to even more brownie points.

Kickstart Your Picnic With Flowers!

For an extra special touch, surprise your significant other with flowers at work with an invitation to a surprise dinner after work. She will be so surprised by the romantic gesture, the picnic will be easy to keep hidden.

Don’t let this summer fly by without creating memories that will last a lifetime. Make a spur of the moment trip to your favorite shady tree with your favorite person and a bouquet of flowers.

Add A Taste of the Tropics To Your Summer Luau With Tropical Flowers

Summer is finally here! Time for block parties, grilling, BBQs, pool parties and summer luaus. Who doesn’t love to get together with friends and eat food?! Summer luaus are always a huge hit! Don your grass skirt, break out those coconuts, crank up the Hawaiian music and you’ve got yourself a good time!

If you want your summer luau to be talked about for years to come, step up the decor and add some fresh tropical flowers!

Tropical flowers are always so unique compared to the flowers we are used to from our gardens. Tropical Flower CenterpieceTheir intensely-colored blooms are sure to set off any summer luau centerpiece. Plus, cut tropical flowers generally last much longer than traditional flower arrangements.

Keep in mind, not all florists carry tropical flowers in their every day supplies (although a lot do!). Don’t fret, they can special order them just for your luau. Contact your florist at least 2 weeks ahead of your party, and they will be able to help you pick out the best tropicals to make your party a huge success.

Go beyond centerpieces and order fresh-flower leis. If you’ve never worn a fresh-flower lei, you don’t know what you’re missing! The heavenly smell of flowers never leaves your nose, and the colors rival anything plastic you can buy. You may think leis are only made in Hawaii, but your local florist might just surprise you with incredible lei-making skills of their own — just ask!
