Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Flowers and Plants That Bring Luck

St. Patrick's Day is this week on March 17th. This celebratory day originated in Ireland and was brought to America by those who settled here from that country. Since then, the holiday has gone well beyond a religious event and turned everyone Irish for at least one day out of the year. There is typically lots of good food like corned beef and cabbage, green beer, parades, and family time. It's the day to wear green and celebrate the shamrock. St. Patrick's Day now represents family, friendship, positivity, and good health and luck. At your favorite Rochester, Spencerport, and Canandaigua flower shops, we are ready to help you celebrate St. Patrick's Day in your own home as well as gifts for others in your life.

Celebrating Floral Artistry on Floral Design Day

Arranging flowers is an artistic skill that requires training, artistic flair, creativity, and a human touch. It's quite a skill to be able to put flowers together in a certain way and combination to express a feeling, create a mood, or add ambiance at a special event. But, that's exactly what floral designers do and have done for centuries. In 1995, an official special occasion day was created to draw awareness to floral design. Known as Floral Design Day, it is celebrated every February 28th. It offers a way to celebrate the natural beauty of flowers and greenery as well as recognize the talent of floral designers. We have the most experienced floral designers in the Finger Lakes area. Our floral collections highlight their talent at work and showcase their ability to create floral designs for all types of occasions (birthdays, anniversaries, graduation, funerals, and more) and across many styles, sizes, colors, and prices. This includes those floral designs in our bestsellers collection. It also includes our Bloom Gal service of beautiful and stunning floral designs that also illustrate what our floral designers can do not to mention our wedding flower designs, which have added to the good memories from many big days. Besides buying and enjoying flowers from our Rochester flower shop or other locations, you can also celebrate Floral Design Day in other ways. This includes sending a message to our floral design team or taking a flower design/arrangement class online or in-person to experience what goes into creating this artwork.  You can also add or plant flowers around your home or participate in a community garden.

Order Early for Your Special Valentine

We are officially into the month of love. That's right, February has arrived, which means that Valentine's Day is just around the corner on Sunday, February 14th. It's coming up quickly, and with it arriving on a Sunday this year, you have the opportunity to turn it into a weekend of fun or even a weeklong celebration. By ordering early for your special Valentine and having gifts delivered earlier in the week, you can give your loved one an even longer time to enjoy the celebration of your love. And, let's face it, with all the tough stuff we've had carried over from 2020, we could all use a little extra celebrating and love. For your favorite Finger Lakes florist, which has to still contend with many COVID-19 restrictions, contactless delivery continues to keep you all safe. However, it can sometimes limit how many deliveries we can do in a day. During one of the biggest holidays of the year, this can be challenging. We did find, however, during the holidays that encouraging people to schedule earlier deliveries enabled us to better meet all our delivery demands. Our Rochester and Canandaigua flower shops are ready to offer you a Valentine's Day collection of flowers, plants, gifts, and edible treats that your loved one will be sure to treasure. These are all available for order through our website, by phone, or in-person that you can also opt to pick up. We are partnering with other local Rochester small businesses to deliver delicious Valentine's Day treats like cupcakes and cakes that are baked fresh to order. We also offer artisan chocolates made locally. You can add any of these onto a Valentine's Day flower or plant order to enjoy with your loved one. Other options for Valentine's Day include many adorable stuffed [...]
