Fun Decorating Ideas for Halloween

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. Also, think of us for Halloween gifts and goodies that [...]

Make a Difference Day On October 24th

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. Don't forget that we also offer a custom floral design service so you can make your own floral gift for that special someone! Plants and Blooming Plants Another option is a blooming plant like an orchid or azalea as well as one of our canoe boat gifts filled with plants and blooming plants. There are also many green plants in various containers to also personalize this gift option.

Think Pink Flowers and Plants During Breast Cancer Awareness Month

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 [...]
