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. Remember, you have a choice of curbside or in-store pickup or contactless [...]
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. Our customers love our collection called Dazzling Dancers that offer many hand-wrapped bouquets along with an adorable stuffed animal. Don't forget that our floral design team can also put a custom bouquet together for you! Of course, we also have other special gifts in our Finger Lakes florist locations that can add a smile, including balloons, greeting cards, and locally curated items.
August is nationally recognized as Romance Awareness Month. It's the time to slow down and reflect on your significant other. It's also an opportunity to find ways to add some romance back into both of your lives. Although it's been a challenging few months, it's good to focus on those things you do have that add so much value to your life. You can celebrate that romance all through the month of August with our Love and Romance Collection. Whether you stop by our flower shops or go to our website, you'll be able to see numerous ways to shower your special someone with beautiful sentiments expressed through all types of flowers. Of course, we have stunning red roses on their own or combined with other beauties like lilies. There are many other colors of roses to choose from, too. Or, you can opt for an artistic arrangement of premium flowers like hydrangea, orchids, and more. Romantic flowers don't always have to be elegant roses or luxurious hydrangea; you can show your romantic side with a bowl full of sunflowers or anything else that personalizes the gift and highlights your recipient's favorite flower. For example, one of our favorites is our Summer Solstice Wrap Bouquet. It's a bright and sweet bouquet of loose cut arrangement of fresh summer flowers in bold colors. The bouquet is wrapped in burlap. You can upgrade to include a vase with the hand bouquet. Don't forget that you can also use our custom floral design service to create an exclusive floral design just for your loved one. This also sends a romantic message that they are the only one for you. You can work with our floral design team by phone or see them in-person. Remember that you have two options for delivery: curbside pickup at our flower [...]
