Get Ready for Labor Day Festivities with Flowers from Rockcastle

September is just around the corner, which means it's time for Labor Day. Many see this first Monday in September holiday as the unofficial end of summer and last three-day weekend before the seasons change and most kids go back to school. Labor Day is more than that, however. This year, Labor Day is September 6th and it's a day to recognize American workers and the efforts they make to increase productivity, economic strength, and collective wealth. Our Finger Lakes flower shops look forward to this holiday each year as an opportune time to praise and thank all of those who work so hard on our behalf, helping our customers with their gifts, decor, and events. This is also an ideal time for you to show your appreciation for all the hard workers in your life, including your own staff. You may also want to show thanks to a business owner or entrepreneur who has been struggling during these difficult and uncertain times. Our Rochester flower shop has many stunning bouquets that are bright, cheerful, and celebratory, sending that very message. There is still time to take advantage of our summer flower collection to send some bold floral gifts to these special people. We also have other gifts that could accompany the flowers, including balloons and locally made delicious baked goods. Our Bloom Gal service not only offers beautiful flowers, but you can also nominate a Bloom Gal, which is someone you know who makes an incredible difference. This could be a special way to celebrate a female entrepreneur or community activist. These items, along with the floral decor, could also help boost the ambiance of any Labor Day event you are considering for this holiday. Maybe you are having an employee event or just a barbecue or picnic to [...]

Send a Gift During National Smile Week to Have Loved Ones Smiling Every Day

The second week in August is National Smile Week. It was created with the aim of spreading more positive action across the country toward kindness and concern for others. With all the stress and uncertainty of the past 15 months, it's become even more important to think about kindness towards others and how our actions can -- and should -- positively impact others. All this week, you can focus on doing things that make others smile. In return, you will most likely smile at feeling good about helping someone else. It can be as simple as holding the door, letting someone in the lane in front of you, paying it forward at the drive-through line, and just saying thank you. Of course, you can also do other things, such as participate in a volunteer program or community event, send letters to seniors or veterans, or gift loved ones with a special gift. Our Finger Lakes flower shops can help provide some gifts to colleagues, new neighbors, family members, friends, clients, and anyone else you might know who you think could use a mood lifter. Here are some ideas: Send a whimsical flower arrangement that offers smiles galore. For example, our Double Rainbow Unicorn Duo adds even more smiles with a sweet flower arrangement in a keepsake unicorn container and a cute and cuddly stuffed unicorn. It's perfect for a friend or family member. Our Designer's Choice and BloomGal products provide you with a customized floral gift option so you can personalize your gift and show your thoughtfulness to your beloved recipient. Our Dazzling Dancers are sweet wrapped bouquets that are beautiful and convenient to grab when you want to make the most of National Smile Week. If you know your recipient loves plants, then make the most of our collection [...]
