Americans today are "downshifting"...staying home in record numbers. As a result, the home environment has become increasingly important. Use the following unique ideas from the Society of American Florists to brighten your home with flowers!

Make Your Guests Feel At Home

To add festivity to any get-together, match the mood with flowers... For a romantic dinner, choose a classic arrangement of roses, lilac, or hydrangea, accented with an elegant ribbon. An afternoon brunch can be made more cheery with a bouquet of tulips, irises and daffodils, or a brightly colored flowering plant. A centerpiece decoration using several miniature vases, each holding a few different flowers can add a special guests leave, offer to let them take one of the small vases home as an extension of a lovely day! Surprise house guests with a lovely bud vase placed at their bedside table or next to their morning coffee. Even a single stem is welcoming and heart-warming. Try floating rose petals in a special bath to spoil a friend! Whatever the occasion, we would be happy to help you make it special!

Use Favorite and Unique Containers

Bring your collectibles out of the closet! Old water pitchers, antique teapots, classic urns or even tattered clay pots make fascinating containers for a casually placed flower arrangement. Sometimes simple touches are most elegant...float two or three blooms, such as gardenias or gerbera daisies in a crystal bowl with a candle or two for a lovely glowing evening effect. For a just-picked-from-the-garden look, fill your favorite old vase with a cheerful bunch of loose stems and anchor with colored marbles. Don't feel comfortable doing it yourself? Bring that favorite container to any of our locations for a custom-designed arrangement! Seeing your personal treasure spring to life with flowers will uplift the room and your spirits.
