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.

Halloween is kind of a big deal for us. It's one of our favorite holidays, so we have so many floral designs that are perfect for a whimsical or spooky celebration. This Saturday, October 31st is Halloween. While it might be a little different this year, it's the perfect opportunity to add more decorations so you enjoy the festivities. Our Finger Lakes flower shops provide many ideas for showcasing pumpkins and fall floral decor in fun ways that you can enjoy or that you can give as a gift to others this Halloween. Besides carving pumpkins and displaying your purple and orange lights and decorations, you can feature flower arrangements throughout your home that include many symbols of Halloween. Our Halloween collection this year has been expanded with some new fun floral designs in a range of traditional and bright colors. Part of decorating for Halloween is using recognizable symbols like bats, ghosts, Jack o'lanterns, and maybe even a witch or two. We've got containers with skeletons, black cats, pumpkins, and more to further the Halloween look. The flower arrangements for Halloween are a great way to add three-dimensional decorations to your home and are perfect for everything from a foyer table to the dining table, kitchen counter, and family room coffee table. If you have something else in mind, you can also work directly with our floral design team in our Rochester flower shop or our other Finger Lakes florist locations. Just call or stop in to make an appointment so you can get some custom Halloween floral displays. Of course, don't forget that even plants are a great way to decorate, including colorful crotons and more. A kalanchoe plant coms in festive Halloween colors like orange and yellow.

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. This could be someone who helped you or your children. It could be a friend that has volunteered their time, or it could be someone who started an organization that is driving positive change. Whatever the case, this Saturday is the day to thank someone and acknowledge their efforts. At Rockcastle, your favorite Finger Lakes florist and Rochester flower shop, we have flowers, plants, and gifts to show that appreciation. Fall Flowers Since it's fall, choosing a fall floral design to show your thanks is a good place to start. From keepsake pumpkin containers to art glass vases, you can find a wide range of styles, sizes, and presentations designed to fit everyone. You can find something that you know your recipient would love, whether it's the type of flower, the color palate, or the overall look -- from modern or traditional to whimsical.

October is a month filled with special days that are good excuses to show others around you that you are thinking of them and appreciate them. This year, with all the unprecedented events, it's become more important to make these connections and spread positivity. This week is Boss's Week (October 12th to October 16th), capping off with Boss's Day on October 16th as well as the Sweetest Day on October 17th. These are both special occasions where you can let others know that they are valued for what they have done for you as well as others. And, since we may be still social distancing, this is a good way to connect and strengthen those important bonds. Your favorite Finger Lakes florist can also help, too. We have a Boss's Day collection as well as many other special gifts that are perfect for the Sweetest Day.

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 [...]

At Rockcastle Florist, we make it our mission to stay updated on the hottest floral trends that appear each season and year. This year, despite all the uncertainty, we've remained certain we are on top of these floral trends. Here's what we have found over the course of the last few months that illustrate today's hottest floral trends: Hand-wrapped Bouquets While hand-tied bouquets have been around for awhile, the ongoing trend has been baskets, vases, or some other container. However, with the desire to provide someone with a quick floral gift, hand-wrapped bouquets seem to be back in-demand. We have dazzling bouquets that are hand-wrapped with a sweet cuddly stuffed animal as well as other hand-wrapped bouquet choices that come in burlap for a rustic look. Botanic Floral Designs This hot trend incorporates more greenery into flower arrangements, including unique items like kale, artichokes, and more. It creates a stunning and lush look that is perfect for hot seasons and into the fall weather. Garden Style This floral design offers bright hues and a wide mix of flowers arranged in a more casual, just-picked display. There are so many ways to use this floral design -- from a rustic basket to a colorful glass vase. The Brighter, the Better Bold hues will continue through the summer and into fall because they provide a cheerful look that everyone can use right now. Many of our floral orders are for bold color palates that offer the most color possible. We love these! Order Today! Select from our summer collection or work with our floral design team on something custom just for you! Call us, stop by our Finger Lakes flower shop, or use our website to place your order today.
