Celebrating Poinsettia Day in Rochester

Poinsettia Day on Wednesday, December 12th is the perfect opportunity to start decorating your home or office for a more festive look. It's also a wonderful and thoughtful early Christmas gift for friends, family, service personnel, clients, or colleagues. Our Rochester flower shop is filled to the brim with Christmas plants, including poinsettias. We offer poinsettias in red, white, and mixed, depending on availability. You can also choose from available containers to display them in. Also, we can create basket arrangements that include poinsettias along with other seasonal greenery and blooming plants for a special Christmas gift. Be sure to place your order today through our Rochester flower shop or our website. What makes poinsettias so great besides being known as a symbol of Christmas is their long-lasting display and ease of care. With just a little attention, poinsettias can last many years and continue re-blooming each holiday season. Once you get a poinsettia plant, be sure to place it in direct sunlight. This is a tropical plant that enjoys sunlight, warmth, and humidity. Also, it's important to maintain moist soil for the poinsettia plant. After the holidays, the plant can continue to live indoors until the summertime where it can be moved outdoors. Come fall, the poinsettia plant will need periods of darkness to slow its blooming cycle. Then, along with fertilizer and a return to sunlight, it will be ready to bloom again.

Holiday Planning Party Tips

Whether it is a Christmas party at home or for an office event or it's an intimate gathering for New Years, holiday party planning takes a lot of planning and attention. You want to impress your guests and create a stylish and inviting environment for your party. However, you also want to stay on budget and prepare everything in the easiest way possible. Here are some tips to get you ready for a fun holiday party: Start early with your plans. With so much else on your plate, you can create invites and send them out a month in advance. This also alerts your guests to what is upcoming as they may have other plans to work around your festive party. Create a budget and stick to it. It's easy to go overboard and overspend. You don't have to in order to create a great party. You don't want to start the year off with debt to pay off! Use online resources and marketplaces to find great deals on items for your party decor. Choose local companies to help you with fresh food and decorations that they can even deliver to your house. Use a local florist to provide great ambiance with poinsettia plants, garlands, wreaths, centerpieces and more that match your theme. This doesn't have to be expensive and can be done easily with custom flower designs or items from a holiday collection. Enlist others to help you. There is no way you can do all this yourself. Have office staff or family members chip in and help with all the planning and decorating. Plus, it's just more fun that way to do it with others.  Whatever you plan on doing, know that we are here to help. Our coordinators and floral design team can create anything you want [...]

Poinsettia Day in Rochester

Poinsettia Day is Tuesday, December 12th. It offers a day to celebrate this beautiful blooming plant. This plant also symbolizes all the special meaning of Christmas, which is why you see it so widely used in decorations in homes and offices and at events. Poinsettias are also often given as gifts to loved ones, clients and colleagues, and other special people like teachers, service personnel, and mail carriers. We have a collection of poinsettias that you are sure to enjoy for their beauty, size, freshness, and value. This includes red poinsettias and white poinsettias. We also have special garden baskets that include poinsettia plants along with other green and blooming plants, which makes a spectacular gift. Besides their beauty, one of the best things about poinsettia plants is that they are a hardy plant that can last all year long and bloom again for the next holiday if you take care of it with just a few steps. From January through the springtime, you want to keep watering it so it never completely dries out. Other than that, the plant goes dormant and prefers a cooler space. During this time, the stems should be cut back to about finger length to encourage its growth later in the year. In fact, you'll see signs of growth like new stalks and leaves. Start fertilizing it with a complete fertilizer. This is also the time to let the poinsettia plant enjoy the outside in a partially shaded area.  As fall hits, the poinsettia plant will really begin to regrow and re-bloom around October. Put your plant in complete darkness at night to control the blooming phase. Flower buds should start showing up in November to be ready to bloom in full in December and through the holidays. While it does take a bit [...]
