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!

November brings beautiful fall colors, a return to cooler temperatures and the one holiday set aside solely for giving thanks and expressing gratitude. And is there a better way to offer a heartfelt ‘thank you’ than with an elegant floral arrangement? We certainly don’t think so.

So get on the phone, hop on over to our website or just walk down to the shop on the corner, but however you do it, make sure you contact your local florist for amazing Thanksgiving florals!

Give Thanks with Flowers

Flowers not only make for amazing decoration, they are also a fantastic way to say thank you. And what else is Thanksgiving Day for if not the giving of thanks to those who’ve helped make our lives better throughout the year? This year, give thanks with the beauty of flowers!

A Variety of Styles

There are floral arrangement possibilities beyond the traditional bouquet, though there’s nothing wrong with an elegant collection of breathtaking flowers gathered in a vase. After all, it became a tradition for a reason. But that’s not all you’ll find when you walk into your corner flower shop. You’ll see a world of creativity and wonder that has been designed and created by your own local flower artists.

Keeping It Local

Local florists mean face-to-face interaction and the opportunity to buy exactly what you want. This personal touch gives you the freedom to personalize your arrangement, affording you the opportunity to truly be specific to the person you choose. And you’ll never find the same quality, care and attention you get at the corner flower shop anywhere else.

Another great reason to use a local florist? It keeps money in the local economy and helps to ensure they’ll be there the next time you need them!

This Thanksgiving Day, if you want to say thank you in the most beautiful way possible, say thank you with flowers.

All the Right Words for Your Thanksgiving Flowers

Thanksgiving Day, as the name suggests, is a day to give thanks for all the blessings from the past year. What better way to offer thanks to those who’ve given you help and support throughout the year than with a gorgeous floral arrangement? And with every gift of flowers there is a blank card just waiting to be filled out. Here are five suggestions to help you express your love and appreciation.

The Key To A Floral Thanksgiving


With Thanksgiving Day just around the corner, it’s time to think about how you want your home to look as your family sits down for the Thanksgiving feast.

All of this and so much more is available when you shop at your local florist!

A day to reach out to friends and family that you may not have seen in some time. Have an aunt that lives across the country or a good friend across the state?
