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. Read More about Shine On With White Flowers All Year Long
Here at the end of summer, we see our gardens and yards filled with bees and other insects dancing among brightly colored summer flowers.

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. Read More about Beautiful Bees And Their Flowers
