Now that summer has arrived, garden tea parties seem to be of the essence. The warm weather and blooming flowers are an invitation to bring good conversation, delicate hors d’oeuvres and fragrant tea outside with friends. Any tea party table should be equipped with beautiful china, delicate flatware and lavish decor. Centerpieces are an integral part of designing any successful garden party, and the flowers you choose can set the tone for the entire event. The floral artists at Blossom Flower Shops have some amazing ideas for designing unique statement pieces for your next garden tea party.
June is a wonderful time to get married, and as it turns out, many people agree. It is by far the most popular time to get married, owing to its generally temperate climate and the invitation it offers to take some time away from work, to travel and to relax. Everything seems more festive and a bit brighter in June, and the flowers that bloom during this time of year seem to capture the month’s spirit, if you ask us here at Blossom Flower Shops. You may be one of the many married couples who has an anniversary coming up this month, or have a couple close to you whose anniversary you would like to remember. And for that, we point you to garden roses.
Father’s Day is upon us—well, almost—and this June 17, Blossom Flower Shops thinks you should forget all the usual suspects when it comes to gifts and give your special dad something meaningful and different. It can be hard to shop for fathers, since they’re the ones who typically demure when asked what they want. As the standard providers, they aren’t often open about the things they desire for themselves. We do our best, but sometimes it feels like it can be difficult to surprise dad. That’s about to change.
So you have a bestie. Did you know there’s a designated time to celebrate that person, and it’s rapidly approaching? June 8 is National Best Friend’s Day, reserved for those special people who have been with you through thick and thin, better or worse. Blossom Flower Shops has got flowers galore for all the best friends out there, something to honor every relationship, whether you want to be poignant and misty-eyed or festive as all get out. Shower your BFF in flowers—they’ll love you more than they already do.
If you’re anything like us here at Blossom Flower Shops, you appreciate a good sneak peek. Whether it’s into the next wave of movies, music, fashion, books or flowers, it’s always exciting to get the early scoop on what’s trending for the next season. A good look at what loveliness is coming around the bend serves as inspiration and gets our creative juices flowing. That’s definitely the case when it comes to looking ahead to summer’s floral designs. While many of the flowers that we love in spring are also showcased in summer, it’s how they are showcased that makes the difference.
We plan ahead for Memorial Day. It’s a three-day weekend. There are parades and commemorative celebrations. We may take the opportunity to host a special event—a backyard barbecue or a more poignant dinner at home with close friends and family. It’s one of those times that we think of as marking the beginning of summer, an occasion that we here at Blossom Flower Shops think is worth celebrating. So while we certainly remember and honor those who died in service to country, we also embrace the people we love, celebrating the long weekend together and looking ahead to a happy, sunny summer.
Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away. It is one of the most anticipated spring celebrations, especially for moms. It is the one day where every mom is a queen, and she can revel in all the pampering her family gives her. It is also a day on which it is customary to shower mothers with gifts — especially floral gifts. At Blossom Flower Shops, we believe in perpetuating the time-honored tradition of giving mothers flowers on their special day.
It’s nearly May, and we’re looking ahead to summer, which brings with it the end of the school year. A host of parties, ceremonies and—most important of all—proms will be happening in the area, with our local seniors and their friends and family celebrating the end of the high school journey and the start of a new one. Here at Blossom Flower Shops, we believe it’s never too early to begin thinking about the flowers you’ll need to properly celebrate or adorn your favorite graduates. This is a high-flower time, and we’re here for it.
Circle the week of May 6 to May 12 on your calendar, its a big deal. This week is reserved for both teacher and nurse appreciation, two fields overwhelmingly dominated by women. Who are these women? The kind who educate, nurture, protect and otherwise empower the rest of us. Blossom Flower Shops encourages you to honor these special people all year long, but this week in particular is a good reminder to make your appreciation and admiration concrete.
Get ready, it’s the Earth’s birthday on April 22.
Well, not exactly a birthday per se, but we here at Blossom Flower Shops feel like it’s in the same spirit. Earth Day is an annual global celebration of our planet, an opportunity to raise environmental awareness, a chance to educate ourselves on how to best preserve and support life on Earth, and a moment to appreciate its abundant natural resources and riches. And when we say riches, we mean flowers and plants. What better way to honor the Earth—especially after you’ve spent the day at a recycling drive, clean-up or environmental fair—than to gather with friends and family and have a gorgeous dinner? So for all intents and purposes, this feels like the biggest birthday ever, and everyone’s invited.
