As if all of us weren't busy already between work, home, school, and all of our other responsibilities, this year's events have thrown us off completely when it comes to being on schedule. Our normal pattern and organized schedule may not be what it once was with so many unprecedented happenings and the overall uncertainty. This means we might not be as on top of important dates and special occasions as we once were. We've all been there, suddenly remembering that a birthday, anniversary, or other big moment is the next day. Even worse, it might already be here or have passed and we forgot to plan to send flowers, a plant, or other gift item. That's where your favorite Rochester flower shop and Finger Lakes florist comes to the rescue! Not only do we have a wide range of floral, botanical, and curated gifts available that you can quickly find on our website, such as our fall collection, but we also offer you some life-saving contactless delivery options for the local area.

October 24th is Make a Difference Day, a day that calls on all of us to do something that makes a change or that praises others for their efforts.

Throughout the Finger Lakes and Rochester area, there are numerous events for October's Breast Cancer Awareness Month that help raise awareness and provide support to fight this disease. Despite COVID-19, this year is no different except some events are virtual while others have been modified. There are still plenty of ways to get involved and do your part to help friends, family members, colleagues, neighbors, and others around you with their fight against breast cancer. Your social media channels and profiles, for example, are a powerful way to get the word out about the importance of early detection, fundraisers and events where others can help, and organizations that are here to help. If you have time, you may also want to volunteer and get involved in some of these events. Or, if you know people that are fighting the disease, maybe you can help them out by driving them to chemo or filling in with family needs when they need to rest and recover. Even the smallest gestures can make a difference. And, those gestures include thoughtful ways to show your love and support for others like sending pink flowers to a breast cancer survivor or to one who is currently fighting the disease so they stay focused on the positive. For our Finger Lakes flower shops, Breast Cancer Awareness Month is very important because we have all been touched by it in some way, including some of our beloved customers. What better than a pink-themed bouquet, flower arrangement, or blooming plant for adding a smile to your recipient's face? We have all types of sizes, styles, and flower combinations, including pastel and boldly colored rose arrangements in different quantities. We even have an official breast cancer floral design. Our "Pink Grace" bouquet is a wonderful way to celebrate that [...]

It's easy to get wrapped up in the stress and worry of life, including what's been amplified this year between health concerns, online school, work stress and more. However, we also have to stop and think about everything we do have, especially those around us that continue to support us and provide positive messages. We can also do the same for those we know who might be battling their own stresses. There is no better time to reach out than this second week of August. That's because it's officially National Smile Week. There is still time to bring the smiles to those around us. You can call or message others and send along a funny or sweet message. Share pictures or make plans to get together in-person or virtually. There are also many types of special gifts you could surprise them with, including flowers. That's because flowers have so many messages and emotions within their appearance. They are also something that people don't often buy themselves but are thrilled to receive as a gift. Plus, flowers are easy to deliver when you can't see each other in-person. We want to help! Our Finger Lakes flower shops and our website make it easy to select a special bouquet, flower arrangement, plant or garden selection that you can get through curbside pickup or deliver through our contactless process.
