Celebrate Thanksgiving with Gorgeous Flowers, Edible Treats, and Thoughtful Gift Baskets

Thanksgiving is a holiday that calls for celebration. It's a time where family and friends spend more time together, and it's an opportunity to reflect on what we are all grateful for. This year has not been busy, but we can all agree that, through it all, we have those special people around us that have provided kind words, something to make us laugh, or even some other type of tangible support. This year's Thanksgiving might be different for some of us, but we can still make memories with special Thanksgiving flowers or delicious treats that we can enjoy together or to send to those that can't be with us. Or, if it's us that can't join in the festivities, there are many ways we can send our thoughts and love to be there in spirit. Centerpieces Send a Thanksgiving centerpiece that matches your loved one's preferences. From tropical to traditional and modern to rustic, we have a wide range of ideas to help add to the Thanksgiving ambiance. Some have taper candles or a hurricane pillar candle while others come in rustic boxes, galvanized tins, or burlap vases or resemble a cornucopia. Your recipient will be sure to love the floral sentiment you select and make them feel your presence even if you can't be there this year. Plants and Bouquets You can also opt for a hand-tied bouquet or cube vase so your recipient can brighten another room in their house besides the Thanksgiving table. Our floral designers can create something for you as a custom Thanksgiving floral gift or as part of their designer exclusives collection. Of course, don't rule out sending a long-lasting seasonal plant that reminds your recipient of you for months to come! From green indoor plants to colorful Crotons to seasonal blooming plants [...]

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 [...]

Welcome Fall with Fresh Decorating Ideas for the Season

Fall officially arrives on the calendar next week, but we are already starting on decorating and sharing our fall decor ideas with you. Our Finger Lakes flower shop and floral design team have already released a large fall collection filled with fresh decorating ideas for your home and as gifts for those in your circle. We'd like to share some of these fall floral trends with you as you start to think about changing your home over for the new season: Beyond Traditional Fall Colors Just when you were planning on those fall colors like rust, burgundy, deep orange, and yellow, this year's fall trends throw you a curve ball by illustrating that fall doesn't have to be about the same colors every year.  This year, you can add a punch of pink, blue, or even purple to the mix while still offering a fall flavor to the overall floral arrangement or bouquet. A New Level of Artistry Our floral design team also wants to show you how they have upped their floral design game to new heights of artistry. For example, our Fall Fantasia arrangement shows you that fall flowers don't always have to be the same either. This incredible floral design is magnificent and illustrates how adding tropical flowers can really create a stunning statement for your home this fall season. Rustic Charm and Fall Motifs Of course, there is still plenty of room and love for traditional fall looks, including rustic designs that incorporate burlap, leaves, sunflowers, and tin tubs. There are also keepsake ceramic pumpkin containers that display magical centerpieces or floral displays that are perfect to welcome family and friends into your home. Hand-Tied Bouquets We've also added some fall-themed, hand-tied bouquets to our fall collection. These are perfect to hand off to a friend, family [...]
