Recognize and Celebrate Our 2020 Graduates!

2020 has not been an easy year. It's been full of challenges for just about everyone. One of the hardest hit groups has been our high school and college graduates. This was essentially their year to celebrate the culmination of years of hard work, grit, and determination to meet challenging academic goals and start the next phase of their life. Instead, they missed out on many of the senior celebrations that are part of this capstone year, including prom, parties, and graduation ceremonies. Instead, they had to finish their school work online and find some other ways to celebrate. The best thing that might have come out of all these disappointments is human resiliency and determination to celebrate somehow, some way. For graduates, that has meant lawn signs, home decorations, car parades past the house, and online parties and ceremonies. There have been special school videos and social media spotlights as well as media coverage of those graduates that have persevered through it all. As you can see, there are many ways to celebrate your grad. Besides these celebratory events, think about a special meal delivered in from their favorite restaurant along with a cake. Don't forget some personalized presents to recognize this huge accomplishment. Finally, you can still plan on those graduation flowers that you were going to bring to the ceremony, including a fresh flower bouquet wrapped up to carry in one hand alongside their diploma. We create many bouquets tied to the school colors of local area high schools and colleges so they can enjoy some school spirit even if they can't be surrounded by their fellow graduates. Some parents are even recreating a stage with school backdrop at home to create the effect of commencement. Don't forget that we also can create balloon bouquets and offer [...]

Send a Porch Planter For Mother’s Day

Here, in Rochester, it's not been business as usual. But, what we have learned is that we can still find a way to celebrate and be grateful for what we have. Right now, that focus should be on celebrating Mom, and we're here to make that as special as possible. We encourage you to order early for Mother's Day, which falls on Sunday, May 10th. What we have had to work around is that the COVID-19 situation has somewhat disrupted our supply chain for vases and fresh flowers. But, we have put our creativity and ingenuity to work to come up with some special ideas to treat Mom. Porch Planters One of the ideas we have for this Mother's Day is porch planters. Available for local Rochester no-contact delivery, give Mom one of these colorful planters that brighten her day and add a welcoming touch for the front or back porch. We offer a mix of containers for these porch planters, with something to fit her personal style. There are rustic containers like galvanized buckets and copper pots. However, we also have wood boxes, baskets, and colorful ceramic containers. Floral and Plant Gifts That's not all! Other Mother's Day gift ideas to show your love include spring flower bouquets and baskets, succulent garden planters, and Mother's Day gift packages. Mother's Day Treats We also still offer some delightful edible treats for Mother's Day, offering a way to get her something yummy and beautiful. We've partnered with local Rochester's own Special T Cakes to bring you delightful Mother's Day cupcakes, cupcake bouquet, and even a mouthwatering cannoli cake.  Order Today!
