Send a Gift During National Smile Week

It's easy to get wrapped up in the stress and worry of life, including what's been amplified this year between health concerns, online school, work stress and more. However, we also have to stop and think about everything we do have, especially those around us that continue to support us and provide positive messages. We can also do the same for those we know who might be battling their own stresses. There is no better time to reach out than this second week of August. That's because it's officially National Smile Week. There is still time to bring the smiles to those around us. You can call or message others and send along a funny or sweet message. Share pictures or make plans to get together in-person or virtually.  There are also many types of special gifts you could surprise them with, including flowers. That's because flowers have so many messages and emotions within their appearance. They are also something that people don't often buy themselves but are thrilled to receive as a gift. Plus, flowers are easy to deliver when you can't see each other in-person. We want to help! Our Finger Lakes flower shops and our website make it easy to select a special bouquet, flower arrangement, plant or garden selection that you can get through curbside pickup or deliver through our contactless process. Our customers love our collection called Dazzling Dancers that offer many hand-wrapped bouquets along with an adorable stuffed animal. Don't forget that our floral design team can also put a custom bouquet together for you! Of course, we also have other special gifts in our Finger Lakes florist locations that can add a smile, including balloons, greeting cards, and locally curated items.

Summer’s Hot Floral Designs

If we had to rate the creativity of our floral design team in capture this year's summer floral trends, we'd have to say that it's sizzling. There are so many new exciting floral designs that they have come up with, inspired to focus on the positive and bright outlook ahead. This year's floral trends have become even bolder, and we're so happy to show them off to you here: Botanical Flair One of the growing trends we see is a focus on botanical floral design. This means that there are more greenery accents included in the design, creating more of a balance between flowers and greenery than usual. Typically, most arrangements are heavy on flowers with just a few greenery aspects. This botanical effect, with additions of things like kale and live-air plants, creates a more lush feel. Brighter is Better Many summer arrangements often just offer a punch of color. However, this year's trend is to go bold or go home. We're seeing more all-out color throughout floral designs with just a touch of soft color here and there. This electrifying look truly lends itself to adding as much cheer as possible, which is appreciated in these uncertain times.  Containers Count Just as important in the summer floral design trends is the container the flowers are presented in. Our floral design team has spent considerable time searching out more unique options that double as a secondary gift. These containers often make great decor pieces for the home. Options include unique visual displays like stained class vases, art glass, and geometric ceramic patterns. What Do YOU Like? Although it's great to know about the current floral trends and what's popular at our flower shops, it still comes down to your personal preference or those of your recipient. Flowers are meant [...]
