Celebrate Random Act of Kindness Day on February 17th

This special day was created with the idea that more people may take the time to do something kind like say “hello” or “good morning” to strangers, smile, or help if they see someone in need. It’s also a great time to do something special for those in your life. Being kind just feels good for everyone involved. In a stressed out world, just a smile can help someone feel better about their day. It puts a positive vibe out there and is catching. Once one person starts it, the wheels are in motion for others to turn to the next person with a smile or kind word. Of course, a gift on Random Act of Kindness Day wouldn’t hurt either! Think about stopping into our Denver flower shop and picking up a great deal on bulk flowers so you can pass out roses to strangers or create simple bouquets to gift to a few special people in your life. These three new additions to our flower collection illustrate the type of beautiful colors and styles available in three different sizes (Deluxe, Premium, and Exquisite): Garden Park Bouquet offers burgundy mini carnations, coral gerbera daisies, pink alstromeria, pink Asiatic lilies

How to Keep Flowers Fresh Longer in a Vase

We all wish flowers would last forever, but unfortunately once we cut them and remove them from their natural environment, they begin to die. Even in nature, flowers eventually die and then are replaced with new blooms. However, if you have flowers in a vase, there are some ways that you can keep them fresh longer so you can enjoy them for the longest time possible. These ideas may seem weird but they have been proven to work alongside regularly re-trimming the stems and adding fresh water: Add ¼ cup of soda to flower water. There is sugar in the soda that helps the blooms last longer. Typically, it is best to use a clear soda. It’s just more attractive than pouring dark soda in the water as the water will then look dirty. Spray your flower arrangement with hairspray on the underside of the petals and leaves. Just like hair, it keeps everything lifted and in place for a longer time. Pour in two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and two tablespoons of sugar into the vase water to keep flowers fresh. Get those flowers a little tipsy by adding a few drops of vodka or another clear spirit

Today is Plant a Flower Day

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
