Celebrate National Garden Month this April
The entire month of April is dedicated to gardens and gardening thanks to the National Gardening Association, a Vermont-based national nonprofit leader in garden-based education that created the month as a way to educate and encourage others about the value of gardening for food and to help the earth regenerate.
Tied to Earth Day, this special gardening month is about celebrating gardens of all kinds and getting more people to plant them in their backyards, patios, balconies and community plots. This is a great opportunity for you to help out around the Denver area as the city continues to focus on regeneration, the environment, and healthy living even in urban areas.
As a local florist in the Denver area, we have been supporting National Garden Month for many years, helping on the local level with community events as well as encouraging more people to buy flowers, plants, and blooming plants.
To celebrate it and help others do the same, we have some great ideas from our own in-store and online collection of plants, blooming plants, and dish and basket gardens:
- Our dish gardens include those in baskets and ceramic containers, which also feature an array of green plants and flowering plants. These are great for indoor spaces at home or the office as well as for those of you that may not have a yard to plant a garden.
- Our blooming plants selection includes begonias and hydrangea in a number of colors and sizes, which are sure to brighten any space.
- Our green plant collection includes palms, bamboo, and a number of unique and beautiful indoor green plants that also allow you to bring your garden indoors for numerous health benefits.
We also have gifts that a gardener would love. For example, KneeloTM is a comfortable, practical, and lightweight cushion that you can put down and that allows you to work in a kneeling position for a long period of time. We have them in a range of colors.
What makes all of these so great is that you do not have to be blessed with a green thumb to have a happy garden. These options are easy to care for and do not require a lot of maintenance. Plus, you get the health benefits not to mention they help beautify the neighborhood and your home.
Like all our products, these garden ready items are high-quality, fresh, and hand arranged and hand delivered for you or your recipient. Come visit during National Garden Month and see how we can help your garden to grow.
This week is Administrative Professionals Week, which runs from April 20th until April 26th. Mid-week is Administrative Professional’s Day. Whether you celebrate those talented staff that keep your office running on that day or provide them with a week full of thanks, it is a great way to focus on your organization’s employee motivation strategy so that you can get the best from them as well as retain that talent.
At Veldkamp’s Flowers, we have a number of ideas on how to gift your staff with something that shows your gratitude for everything they do for you. With an extensive collection with varying prices, you are sure to find something that fits the personality of your staff and brings them joy on this special day (and week!).
Our floral selection of bouquets and arrangements offer a wide array of flower varieties, many featuring springtime favorites like tulips, orchids, and carnations. There are many styles to choose from to reflect a feminine or masculine look to accommodate all your office staff. There are some incredible tropical flowers and contemporary floral designs that will be sure to wow your employees.
A great idea if flowers are not an option is to go with an indoor green plant. First, they are a nice addition to the office, providing a healthier environment. Second, they are good to give in case anyone has an allergy to flowers. Three, they last a long time, offering months and even years of enjoyment.
In our plant collection, we have some stunning basket arrangements that even include flowering plants. There are also other choices like bamboo, a money tree, and orchids to select from, offering something for everyone.
Although we have stunning flowers and gorgeous plants, it may be hard to get past the treats we offer because they look delicious if we do say so ourselves! We have a wide range of gift baskets, which are a great idea if you have a group of people to thank on this special occasion. These bounteous baskets are full of seasonal fruit, gourmet food, and even sweet treats.
Delivery for Administrative Professionals Week
We offer same-day delivery during Administrative Professionals Week so you can get your gift to your staff even if you have left it to the last minute. We also deliver nationwide so you can also thank those virtual office workers you may have on your staff for keeping you organized!
As one of Denver’s favorite flower shops for prom flowers, we are already taking orders for many of the students in the Denver area as they start to get ready for prom.
We’re here to help you get ready with some tips on picking the right prom flowers as well as showcasing some of our corsage and boutonniere designs to give you an idea of what is possible.
Tips for Prom Flowers
The biggest tip we can make is to go with something that represents your individual style and personality. Of course, it must go with your dress too, but that probably already illustrates you!
If you are not sure, you can peruse our online gallery or also look in current teen fashion magazines as they regularly cover prom prior to the dance.
Our Prom Flower Collection
As we show here, we can create just about anything for prom and are excited about the ongoing trend of greater creative freedom with corsages and prom flowers.
We can use just about any type of flower or combination of flowers as well as add accents like pearls, rhinestones, custom jewelry and greenery to individualize your corsage.
This includes corsage wristlets and even corsage arm bands, which make a truly unique statement.
For a custom look, you can also bring in your dress and our floral design team can create something based on that fashion design so you can really stand out in the prom crowd.
Prom Flower Delivery
From our Denver flower shop to your door, we can hand deliver your corsage and boutonniere. This is one less thing you need to do on that hectic day of getting ready for prom. After all, you are probably already shuttling the kids from the tailor with the dress to the tux shop to the hair salon.
We can deliver your prom flowers so you have more time to get ready and more time for pictures before the limo comes and whisks your kids off to the big dance!

Not only is the first day of spring coming up on March 20th, but it is also Proposal Day. Both celebrations can be enhanced through flowers, whether it is enjoying them at home or at the office, gifting them to loved ones, or using them to decorate a special event, such as a party, event, or spring wedding.
Proposal Day is one of those often not heard of special days each year. It is intended as a day to commit to making some kind of proposal, which is usually associated with a marriage proposal. However, other proposals may be used as well so it could be proposal to be boyfriend and girlfriend or proposal to do something fun. It’s up to you!
To add to the special aspects of your proposal or make it more convincing, think about adding a spring flower bouquet, spring flower arrangement, or rose petals to accompany that incredible engagement ring you just bought!
Spring is Here!
While the official start of spring is just days away, spring flowers are already here in our Denver flower shop. This includes many favorite spring flowers like tulips, lilacs, irises, orchids, sunflowers, roses and carnations just to name a few. We also have some incredible spring plants, basket gardens, and silk flower arrangements dedicated to spring.
Our wide selection of spring flowers along with many new spring flower designs provides something for everyone to enjoy whether it is a certain color combination, container type, flower design style or flower variety. We can customize our spring flowers to create something unique just for you.
We are already busy with spring wedding season with many orders already placed for spring wedding bouquets, spring wedding ceremony and reception flowers, and spring cake flowers.
With Easter just a few weeks away on April 20th, we are also getting our Easter flower, plant, and gift selection ready. Be sure to check back in-store and online for our new Easter flower and gift ideas.
We are also undertaking our own spring cleaning and renewal with a complete store renovation currently underway, including a revamped in-store cooler that offers more space for more flower arrangements as well as new product lines. Our changes will be made over the coming months, offering you more choices and more space to shop! Come see what’s changing!
Today is Plant a Flower Day. Each year, March 12th is designated for this special celebration of nature and has become increasingly important as part of the greater attention toward environmental responsibility and the need to conserve our natural resources around the world
As a flower shop that believes in the beauty and value of flowers, this special day also gives us a chance to remind everyone where flowers come from and how important it is to give back to Mother Earth. Just like other days like Plant a Tree Day, it’s a reminder that we always have to replenish what we take or it may not be there for future generations.
While we are not sure how this special day got started, it is here and should be celebrated by all of us, including in your backyard, in that community garden, and across the country and world throughout any other spots where flowers will add beauty.
Now that spring is just around the corner, we will see more stunning spring flowers, including tulips, daffodils, and roses come out and bloom. We can also think about planting summer and fall flowers to enjoy in the upcoming months.
If you don’t have time to participate in a Plant a Flower Day celebration today, you can do other things today or in the coming weeks to show your support for more flowers. Add to your garden or create a new one, giving your kids a patch to plant their own flowers so they learn about the importance of renewing nature’s wonders.
If you have a special occasion or simply want to decorate your home or office, why not order some fresh flowers from us today. We do offer same-day delivery. Or, you can order flowers for someone special so they can be reminded of the value of flowers. Either way, you are spreading the word that flowers must be treasured.
Our mission as your local Denver florist is to focus on operating as a sustainable business while delivering a wide variety of fresh, beautiful flowers. Join us today in celebrating this special day dedicated to nature!
