Halloween flowers at parties and to say thank-you

 

If you’re hosting a Halloween party this year, we have a few suggestions for decorating with Halloween flowers. Fall-themed colors are orange and yellow, and you’ll find those shades in gerbera daisies, sunflowers and roses. There are no romantic connotations to yellow roses, so you can safely order a selection and use them in funky Halloween vases, thus bringing a little sweetness to the table. Or you can create a Halloween flower feature by placing a vase or two outside your front porch with a beautifully carved pumpkin.

 

Our fall collections are starting to come in now, and they make ideal Halloween flowers. Pick the country where you want them to be delivered and look through our bronzes and golds. Kids can get together to send mom some Halloween flowers or you can simply use them to brighten up the longer evenings.

 

daFlores.com guarantees week-long freshness for all our Halloween flowers

 

Regardless of the occasion, our guarantee that they’ll stay fresh a week or longer applies. While we don’t recommend filling the vase with candy, don’t forget that a little sugar or cut flower powder goes a long way towards extending the life of your Halloween flowers.

 

DaFlores delivers Halloween flowers right until October 31, but we’d suggest ordering early to avoid disappointments. If you let our florists plan ahead, they can get in supplies and make sure you get exactly what you ordered. Take care of this detail and we’re happy to say that our flowers aren’t ghosts: They’re a welcome and lovely addition to your Halloween decor.

Honeybees: Bringing you the best, most beautiful flowers

The honeybee is an incredible creature. The hive centers around a queen, who gives life to all the bees. Organized into an amazing system that feeds, nurtures and protects, this beneficial insect provides honey, beeswax and of course flowers. Was there ever such a useful little creature?

Without bees, there would be neither flowers nor fruit. The bees transfer pollen from tree to tree, flower to flower, ensuring a beautiful harmony. In return, the blossoms feed the bees and they feed the human soul, too. It’s true that bees can sting but, if you’ll pardon the pun, they won’t bug you if you don’t bug them. Humans might do well to learn a lesson or two from the way this give-and-take, sharing relationship works. Bee on Yellow Flower

Naturally, daFlores is grateful to the bees. Without them, we wouldn’t be doing what we do: Bringing you the best, most beautiful flower arrangements. Thanks to the honeybee, our florist deliver fresh to you every morning without fail. Our skilled artists create amazing arrangements that bless your loved ones with smiles.

Everything in life is part of a cycle. In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it’s sometimes hard to remember this. We suggest that the next time you spot a bee, you take a moment to sit down and watch it go about its business. Then think about the last time you sent a flower delivery. You’ll get the connection soon enough: It’s oddly soothing.

Watching bees is a little like smelling the roses, and boy do we have roses! Take a moment today to appreciate the simple things in life, whether it’s a furry bumble bee or a slender, efficient honeybee. And if there’s someone on your mind, well, just as a bee brings the beauty of flowers, you can use daFlores to deliver flowers to the doorstep. We’re really good that way.

Celebrate the Fourth of July with flowers

Beautiful Fourth of July flowers are a great way to celebrate Independence Day.

Imagine your guests’ delight when they see your elegant tables, all perfected with Fourth of July flowers.

DaFlores can help you with an Independence Day flower delivery. We have a wide selection of bouquets, from roses to daisies and more. When choosing Independence Day flowers, consider what kind of gather this is.

Will it be a family occasion, with everyone from little children to your venerable great-grandmother? Consider alternating roses and gerbera daisies to suit both ends of the age spectrum. Or will it be a formal dinner party, with professional friends and co-workers? Elegant tropical flowers are an advantage in this case, evoking the fire of summer without being too intimate.

It’s always seemed to us that the Fourth of July is the heart of summer, the celebration that everybody loves. The garden’s in full bloom, everyone’s on vacation, and it’s all about good food, good company and good decor. If you take care of the first two, daFlores can take care of the rest.

Our network of experienced florists is on hand to deliver your order, created from flowers picked fresh that very morning. Just select your flowers from our website, enter the details and we’ll take your Independence Day flower delivery from there.

Another way to incorporate Independence Day flowers is to send them to the person who’s spearheading the gather. Mom would just adore a precious bouquet on this happy July occasion.

When the Smallest Flowers Grow, Spring is On Its Way—at daFlores too!

How can you tell it’s spring? Look for the littlest flowers.

As though timidly checking to see if it’s still cold out, the earliest spring flowers are small. Crocuses and snowdrops are among the first out of the ground, sometimes pushing their way up through melting snow. These hardy little blossoms don’t need to show off by being big: They’re just happy to be out there, bringing a sense of joy to those who see them.product_big_0011

And it is a joyous thing, isn’t it? We at daFlores think so, anyway. That first flash of color as the little bulbs unveil themselves, even the first green shoots, are a sign of hope and renewal. In many cases they are a sign of Easter, itself a festival of renewal and joy. DaFlores, of course, can supply all your Easter flower needs from our extensive floral catalog.

After the littlest flowers come the daffodils, and then it’s really spring. Even if that’s not happening in your neck of the woods, know that it will come. If you’re suffering from the winter blues or know someone else who is, a beautiful flower delivery from daFlores is sure to brighten up any day.

Aphrodisiacs for Valentine’s Day

There’s something a little naughty about Valentine’s Day, the day when Eros and Cupid have their wicked way. For those who’re a bit cheeky or who want to spice things up, here are a few classic aphrodisiacs that help do just that. Named for Aphrodite, the goddess of love, these aphrodisiacs are sure to make your day.

Chocolate

There’s something magic about chocolate. There’s a secret chemical inside a good piece of chocolate that’s said to increase desire. It certainly has that feel-good effect. And at Valentine’s Day fine chocolates abound. Send a hidden message with one of daFlores’ chocolate and Valentine’s Day flower arrangements.

Oysters

These shellfish are considered to be aphrodisiacs, but they’re not for everyone. Serve up a dish of oysters, though, and the message will get across. Seal the deal with a Valentine’s Day flower delivery to make the occasion special. Dress it up with red and pink decor and all will be very well.

Asparagus

While we’re on an eating jag, asparagus has that reputation. These spears of fine vegetables were even served at wedding feasts. Lightly steamed and served with lemon juice and sesame seeds, they make a fine prelude to the main event.

Truffles

Rare and expensive, and allegedly delicious, truffles are considered aphrodisiacs. They’re very pricey and perhaps out of range, but there are other kinds of truffles. This kind of leads us back to chocolates, and a perfect thing to add to Valentine’s Day flowers. Serve some fine truffles and see where it goes. It’s not going to be boring.

Roses

Our last aphrodisiac comes from the heart, a classic bouquet of Valentine’s Day roses. Neither eaten nor applied, they fill the heart with love and a very good mood. At daFlores we can arrange whatever you need, and make your day very special.

We at daFlores.com hope you enjoyed our brief look at aphrodisiacs and wish you a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Valentine’s Day for married couples

Who says that marriage turns out the light? Only if you let it. Valentine’s Day is a perfect day to celebrate a long-lasting romance. Many mutter that you don’t need a special day to celebrate romance, and in part that’s true. But there’s something special about coasting on the wave of love for Valentine’s Day and really, what’s the harm?

None at all, say we. Set the scene with a Valentine’s Day flower delivery, either to home or work. Even the men in your life might appreciate a floral gift, and daFlores has tasteful Valentine’s Day flower arrangements that are perfect for a man.

Go out to dinner, or have dinner at home. Valentine’s Day flowers make the house smell sweet and add a truly beautiful centerpiece. There’s a lot to say for setting the scene and turning an ordinary day into something special. Start a tradition with a flower subscriptions—we’ll send you flowers for a year. (Where available.) Valentine’s Day can be a reaffirmation of love, the start or end of a lovely twelve months.

Whether you get in a delivery or cook something spectacular, a Valentine’s Day meal at home is great. Ship the kids off to a grandparent, and spend the time alone. Too often couples get wrapped up in their kids’ needs, and forget about time for themselves. Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to do that and go to town.

Another suggestion? Pick out a hotel and book the Valentine’s Day deal. Usually extras like chocolates and roses can make the event something else. Pretend you’re right back at the start, dating and freshly in love. It’s amazing what a little time spent together can do, and it sets you up for the year ahead.

Valentine’s Day Symbols

Let’s take a look at some of the classic symbols of Valentine’s Day. The shops fill full of them from New Year’s onward, but have you ever thought of the meaning behind these Valentine’s Day items?

Hearts

Everywhere you look are heart-shaped things. The boxes of chocolates and the candies themselves all bear this form. The ancients used to believe that the heart held all emotions, and even today we still ‘speak from the heart.’ DaFlores can add boxes of chocolates to your Valentine’s Day flowers, creating the perfect gift.

Cupid

Cute little Cupid shoots off his bow, a cheeky little guy whose love knows no bounds. Like all the ancient tales his story can be a little dark, because love can cause as much heartache as it soothes. But we don’t need to worry about that on Valentine’s Day, as we enjoy all the best of the season. If Cupid’s got your heart and you don’t know what to say, don’t worry: a Valentine’s Day flower delivery from daFlores can say all you need.

Chocolates

Why chocolates? Why candy? Well, it’s sweet, of course. You want to give your sweetheart something special on Valentine’s Day. Trimmed to perfection in their blood-red boxes, these sweet confections tell you that the giver thinks you’re sweet. Several of daFlores’s Valentine’s Day flower arrangements already come with chocolates, but you can add them as options to many a fine gift.

Roses

Ancient and beautiful, the rose is an eternal symbol of love. Everyone from supermarkets to street vendors carry these amazing flowers. Choose red or pink, depending on what you want to say. A single red rose or an armful are all yours for the giving at daFlores.com

Red and Pink

Red, so deep and mysterious, is the color of blood (and Valentine’s Day). Red is for passion, and love, and the heart. Pink is a gentler shade, but equally welcome. That’s why everything on Valentine’s Day are in shades of red and pink. For your Valentine’s Day flower delivery, we can arrange red roses and all sorts of pink and red delights for your beloved recipient.
