As Labor Day approaches, we need to ask an all-important question: When it comes to the white-after-Labor-Day rule, are you a traditionalist or a trendsetter? For our traditionalists, we offer one last all-white arrangement to display in your favorite space before we enter our no-white, fall and winter months. If you tend to be a more modern trendsetter, consider including an all-white floral display in a fresh, unique spin on decorating. Blossom Flower Shops encourages you to peruse some of our best white arrangements for your home or office.
Here at the end of summer, we see our gardens and yards filled with bees and other insects dancing among brightly colored summer flowers. Not only are these blooms gorgeous, they’re also incredibly functional and purposeful. Many insects, bees specifically, are attracted to bright reds and yellows, as well as deep blues and purples. Having bees in your yard or garden means you’re contributing to the world-wide bee population, encouraging pollination and a healthy environment. Blossom Flower Shops has plenty of bee-friendly bouquets and options for your outdoor space.
Your kitchen just might the warmest, most inviting room in your home. Kitchens are where conversations happen, stories are told, and memories are made. Invest in this special space with flowers that show off your personality and bring comfort to your guests. The floral experts at Blossom Flower Shops are glad to help you find the perfect arrangement and give you advice on how to make your guests feel more at home.
Have you ever thought about how much work goes into preparing a school for the new year? Administration, office and cafeteria staff, custodians and teachers work through the summer and return early to make sure everything will run smoothly when students return. This year, consider sending these important individuals a beautiful arrangement before the year begins to thank them for everything they’ve already done- as well as everything they will do all year- to ensure a successful school year. Blossom Flower Shops has a large collection of gorgeous plants and blooms and we’re here to help you celebrate this new school year.
If you’ve never been to a floral festival or event, plan your adventure for spring and summer 2019. During the warmer months, bloom-centric festivities pop up across the country, with towns, cities, regions and sometimes whole states (we’re looking at you and your lavender, California) join in to celebrate one particularly representative flower. Blossom Flower Shops has rounded up a good crop of these events, and the best part is, none of them are too far afield.

If you’re not taking a major vacation this summer, try this hack: get some flowers.
Blossom Flower Shops is well aware of the power of a well-arranged floral to establish a mood and create a feeling. But you may not have realized that certain designs, depending on the blooms and greens they use, also have the ability to transport us to different places. By making use of specific flowers and playing with texture, color and shape, we can bring a worldly sensibility into our homes and add character to our space, just as if we had taken a trip somewhere and come back with some mementos that speak to the experience we had.
On an occasion like Independence Day, it’s important to remember the reason we celebrate. We honor the men and women who have served our nation and dedicated their lives to defend the freedom we hold so dearly. What a great day to acknowledge their unending sacrifice by thanking them for everything they’ve done. At Blossom Flower Shops, we love to send messages of thanks through flowers, and we have plenty of amazing bouquets to choose from.
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.
