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. In doing so, you are adding back to nature for everything that it gives us. It also creates beauty around your home and the community. If you are artistic in other [...]

Introducing Bloom Gal!

We are excited to introduce you to our latest endeavor: BloomGal! While we have been voted the best flower shop in Rochester, New York and serve the entire Finger Lakes area, we are always looking to make improvements and offer our customers even more when it comes to variety, value, and service. Here's how BloomGal got started. BloomGal was the idea of Wendy Jones Rockcastle, co-owner of Rockcastle Florist. With the help of her daughter, Mary Ethel Rockcastle, BloomGal was born. It was based on the idea of creating a floral subscription service that was accessible to more people. It seemed like a good idea to launch during COVID-19 with everyone stuck at home and the need to bring more natural beauty and color to all. Besides selling a floral subscription service, however, BloomGal has another higher purpose, which is to encourage others to nominate a BloomGal. In doing so, you are helping to highlight women in the community who inspire us. Each woman nominated will get highlighted in upcoming blog posts. We'd love to hear from you! Now, back to the floral subscription service. You can choose from weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, and seasonally for your bouquets. Our subscription bouquets are hand-crafted by a trained floral designer who uses the freshest seasonal flowers available. Every bouquet is different! Add-ons include a vase and shirt. Contactless delivery is free for our floral subscription service.  Currently, the service is only available within the Rochester and Canandaigua area. We are hoping to expand the service area in the near future. We also cannot accept orders for same-day delivery for the floral subscriptions.  If you chose today’s date in the date selection when placing your order, then your flowers will be delivered the next applicable day. For example, if you place an order for Monday delivery on Monday, your [...]

Best-Selling Floral Designs Reflect the Hottest Trends in Floral Design For Rochester

Our bestselling flowers reflect the favorites of our local customers here, in and around the Rochester area. These preferred floral designs also highlight some of the larger hot floral trends in design and presentation for flowers as art. Let's look at some of today's floral trends. Unique Containers The floral design is not just about the flowers, accents, and colors. The container becomes part of the overall effect. More customers enjoy the value of receiving a stunning keepsake container that they can use for more flowers or just display like art in their homes. For example, some of our best-sellers have art glass containers or those that looked like stained glass. One of our personal favorites is the Pretty Teatime Bouquet, which comes in a keepsake teacup with saucer. The teacup is filled with yellow spray roses, miniature white carnations, blue delphinium, seeded eucalyptus, and spiral eucalyptus.  Botanical Feel There is more mixing of plants and flowers together to provide a naturalistic setting. This includes adding succulents to floral displays as well as using more flowering plants to add color to arrangements. Whimsy Sweet, charming, and petite bouquets offer a sweet message to feature in your home or office as well as serve as a special gift for  loved ones. For example, the Edwardian Charm Bouquet is a small floral display with blush-colored flowers like orchids, roses, and hydrangea. The vase is wrapped with a lace accent. Similarly, our Coral Charm Bouquet shows that even small bouquets add a big feel to a room. This bold and colorful arrangement comes in a a brightly colored glass cylinder vase with cork wrap along with coral gerbera daisies, pink hydrangea, orange roses, and peach spray roses.
