July is a special month beyond it being the middle of summer and the home to the 4th of July. It is also a month filled with special days devoted to important family members. For example, July 24th is Cousin's Day, July 26th is Uncle and Aunt Day and Parent's Day, and July 30th is Father-in-Law Day. Each of these people play an important part in your life so they deserve to be celebrated with a gift and loving message from you. When meeting in-person may still be difficult or discouraged, a Zoom call and special gift are the second best thing. Your favorite Finger Lakes florist is here to help with numerous gift ideas along with easy ordering and a choice of curbside pickup or local no-contact delivery. Here's what we've got for you: Meaningful Flowers All flowers and colors contain special ways to express certain emotions. For example, red roses signify love while pink represent affection. You might focus on these hues when selecting flowers for family members. Or, you can put together a custom arrangement with the help of our floral designers that represents the colors and flower varieties that you know your family member loves. Plants and Green Gifts Maybe your family member loves gardening or prefers plants over flowers. It's okay because we have you covered. Our plant collection includes green plants, blooming plants, exotic plants like orchids, succulents, dish and basket gardens, and more. Just check our website to see the entire plant collection or visit one of our Finger Lakes flower shops. Curated Gifts As a small business, we feel it's important to encourage our fellow small businesses by promoting and partnering with them on items that our customers will love. That's why we have curated a special collection of both edible goods [...]
If we had to rate the creativity of our floral design team in capture this year's summer floral trends, we'd have to say that it's sizzling. There are so many new exciting floral designs that they have come up with, inspired to focus on the positive and bright outlook ahead. This year's floral trends have become even bolder, and we're so happy to show them off to you here: Botanical Flair One of the growing trends we see is a focus on botanical floral design. This means that there are more greenery accents included in the design, creating more of a balance between flowers and greenery than usual. Typically, most arrangements are heavy on flowers with just a few greenery aspects. This botanical effect, with additions of things like kale and live-air plants, creates a more lush feel. Brighter is Better Many summer arrangements often just offer a punch of color. However, this year's trend is to go bold or go home. We're seeing more all-out color throughout floral designs with just a touch of soft color here and there. This electrifying look truly lends itself to adding as much cheer as possible, which is appreciated in these uncertain times. Containers Count Just as important in the summer floral design trends is the container the flowers are presented in. Our floral design team has spent considerable time searching out more unique options that double as a secondary gift. These containers often make great decor pieces for the home. Options include unique visual displays like stained class vases, art glass, and geometric ceramic patterns. What Do YOU Like? Although it's great to know about the current floral trends and what's popular at our flower shops, it still comes down to your personal preference or those of your recipient. Flowers are meant [...]
