Giving the Most Popular Gift in the World: Flowers

v1While many gifts tend to have cultural connections and meanings, flowers transcend all of those and provide a universal gift loved by people all over the world. The reason that flowers are so popular is that they are a part of nature that everyone can relate to and appreciate in terms of their beauty and connection to the environment.v2

We have a shared connection to nature as a species and that underlies how we feel about flowers when we receive them for a birthday, anniversary, job promotion, new baby, get well or even a “just because.”

As florists, we especially appreciate knowing how much flowers can mean to the recipient so that knowledge of enjoyment goes into every flower we select and every arrangement we make for our customers.

From working with premium, high-quality flower farmers to hiring award-winning floral designers, everything we do is focused on the idea that flowers bring joy and create smiles for those that see and receive them.v3

This summer, we have been working with so many wonderful customers on creating special gifts for loved ones who have been sending our flower arrangements throughout the Denver area as well as across the country and even the world.
