Planning for Intimate Holiday Parties

Every year, the holidays require plenty of planning and attention to pull off a memorable and fun event for you, your family, and friends. This year's planning is a bit more challenging because of the restrictions that mean much smaller, more intimate gatherings with just close family or a few friends. However, you can still create a festive setting for Christmas and New Year's gatherings. Here are some tips for planning a small holiday get-together in-person or as part of a virtual event. If you are meeting in-person, make sure to add as much holiday decor as possible to add cheer. More people are adding lights and outside displays than ever before with so many more stuck at home to see and enjoy it. You can do the same as well as add poinsettia plants to your porch and walkways as well as garlands to your porch railings and a wreath on your door. Some people are even putting wreaths on their garage doors. Once inside, your guests can also enjoy a festive display as they go from room-to-room. It is fun to create a theme for each social space as well as add a small bouquet to any guest rooms if you have guests staying with you. Don't forget to light up some scented candles and create your Spotify holiday music playlist.  Make sure to add a large centerpiece to the dining table to enjoy during Christmas dinner as well as any New Year's festivities you plan on holding. This is a special way to decorate the table! Now, you may be planning for a completely different type of holiday celebration this year, adding a virtual get-together to your festivities. If you do use video conferencing to get-together or a meal or social activities, plan on coordinating your spaces [...]

Centerpieces for the Table A holiday centerpiece for the dining table adds to the Christmas look for dinners. You can also add a centerpiece to other tables in your home, such as a coffee table in your gathering or family room.

Use centerpieces with pillar or taper candles where you want to create ambiance with lower light. Our centerpieces offer many styles and colors. For example, we have some winter wonderland-themed, white centerpieces that work well for both Christmas and New Year's!

Bring Others Joy on Poinsettia Day

This holiday season, giving and letting others know they are loved and cared for has become more important than ever. Let's face it, 2020 has been a tough year for just about everyone. And, with continued restrictions through the end of the year, the sense of isolation and loneliness may increase as the typical activities, including parties and large gatherings are discouraged. Now is the time to focus on bringing others joy, which, in the process of doing so, can also add joy to your own life. A good place to start is this Saturday, December 12th. That's Poinsettia Day, a day that became a national event in 2002 when Congress made it official. However, poinsettia plants have been spreading joy for a lot longer. Dating back to the 1300s, the poinsettia plant has been used for various purposes, including its dye properties. In more modern times, the poinsettia plant has become a favorite symbol of Christmas with bright red blooms or crisp white blooms. There are over 100 varieties of poinsettia plants to choose from, although you typically only see just a few color choices. Our Rochester flower shop and florist locations around the Finger Lakes are your source for fresh poinsettia plants to decorate your own home and, more importantly, to gift to others. Many people may skip buying a poinsettia plant and choose to decorate other ways, which is why it makes such a great gift. You always want to get the item that your recipient would like but may not want to spend money on. It's a versatile gift, working for just about anyone, including teachers, neighbors, service personnel, friends, clients, colleagues, and more.  We offer single and double poinsettia plants in a few colors. Other options are holiday gardens in various containers, sizes, and plant [...]

Our Finger Lakes Showrooms are Brimming with Holiday Cheer!

The holiday season is here. First, Hanukkah arrives with the Festival of Lights celebration, starting on December 10th and ending on December 18th. Then, Christmas is December 25th. While some of you celebrate one or the other, some families combine both special celebrations and traditions. Whatever you plan to do, now is the time to start decorating for the holidays. While many of you may have started even earlier this year because you are working from home, others may be just beginning to decorate. To help you add Christmas cheer and Hanukkah spirit to your home, both indoors and outdoors, our Finger Lakes showrooms, including our Rochester flower shop and Canandaigua florist location, are brimming over with festive decor and gift ideas. We have wreaths, garlands, centerpieces, holiday plants like poinsettias, bouquets, stocking stuffers, and heartfelt gift options for family, friends, colleagues, client, neighbors, teachers, service personnel, and others. Let's start with our Hanukkah collection, which features centerpieces, bouquets, and floral displays that honor the symbolic hues of blue and white. There are many stunning options to choose from, whether you decorate the entire house for this holiday or dedicate one special room to this celebration. Our Christmas collection has been expanded this year to offer more ways to create a festive home this year since more of you may be choosing to stay put versus travel. Starting on the outside of your home, we offer a wide range of wreaths -- from rustic and traditional to modern and elegant -- with ribbons, pinecones, baubles, and more. You can also display fresh garlands on your porch railings as well as line your walkway with poinsettia plants. A nice touch is to add a boxwood tree decorated with lights and baubles. Upon entering your home, think about how you can add [...]
