Welcome Summer with the Season’s Hottest Flower Designs

As the summer is now in full swing, there are many summer events and occasions where summer flower can enhance the overall experience, including summer weddings in the Finger Lakes as well as a return to larger parties and events. Plus, your home and office can still do with a seasonal refresh. Adding flowers and plants can help transform rooms in a beautiful and reasonable way. Our floral designers have created a wonderful summer flower and plant collection based on the seasonal trends they regularly follow. This year, summer floral trends offer some new and exciting ways to add flowers and plants to your life. Here's what we've found: White, yellow, and Earth tones are top summer flower colors to enjoy this season. We've added flower designs to our summer collection that feature these colors individually as well as combined into various bouquets and arrangement sizes. The crisp white offers a refreshing look on a hot and humid day here in the Finger Lakes while the yellow and Earth tones add some brightness to the indoors.  After a stressful year, one of the top floral trends this summer are Zen-like floral designs that feature a more minimalist look versus over-sized and busy-looking garden style. Think a focus flower with additional accents that set off the focus flower. The natural and botanical look have been a popular floral design for the last few seasons and shows no signs of slowing down this summer. With a focus on Mother Nature, sustainability, and the beauty found in all aspects of our environment, these floral designs emphasize greenery as well as highlight unique natural elements like artichokes, succulents, twigs, berries, leaves, and more. It's given our floral designers the opportunity to experiment and try new design elements to their arrangements, including those for summer [...]
