Get ready for Thanksgiving flowers

Thanksgiving is just a few short weeks away, and daFlores invites you to get ready for the holidays by ordering flowers now. The longer you wait, the higher the risk that our busy florists will need to use substitute flowers. While our substitution policy is very generous, it’s always better to get exactly the flowers you were expecting this holiday season. Continue reading

Fall color and flowers

Depending on where you are in the country, leaf peeping season is just starting, or it’s well underway. If you’re lucky, bright sunshine will heighten the vivid golds and reds that fall brings, before the leaves end up rustling underfoot. If you’re not so lucky, drenching rain makes this time of year a little unpleasant, but the sight of changing foliage is pretty, and marks the start of the holidays.

Christmas flowers: Festive holiday wreathWhen leaves stop producing green chlorophyll, they turn different colors and start to fall off. The growing season is over; everything goes dormant until the spring. The switch gives us a visual treat that’s a symbol of fall and changing seasons. If you’re a gardener, you can recycle the leaves as mulch or compost, ready for the spring.

Local news stations and different states have reports on where to see the best fall color. The higher elevations turn first, with each segment changing and ending with the valleys and flatlands. You can also look at forest and government sites for detailed descriptions of what to expect. Continue reading

September holidays: Celebrate with flowers

September will soon be upon us, the month in which it becomes fall or spring, depending on which side of the globe you call home. September has a number of fun holidays that you can mark with parties and flowers, including the solstice, grandparents’ day, and Labor Day. We covered the last one with our previous blog post, so let’s move on to some of the more unusual celebrations of September. Continue reading

Spring flowers and fall flowers for the solstice

March 20th is the first day of spring if you’re in the northern hemisphere, or the first day of fall if you’re in the southern one. Either way, this is the date of the March equinox in 2014, a day when, at the equator, the night and day are the same length. We won’t get into the astronomy of why that isn’t the case further north and south here, but we will take a look at what daFlores offers in terms of spring or fall flowers. Continue reading

Celebrate Fall with Beautiful Flowers

It’s sometimes hard to let go of the summer, with its bright colors and warm, relaxing weather. But the Fall has its charms too, in the gorgeous shades of falling leaves, the golds and oranges that usher in winter holidays. Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are just round the corner, but if you’re feeling a bit blue, why not celebrate the season with beautiful flowers?

The official start of Fall is September 21, but nature doesn’t listen to humanity’s “official” dates. Any time the weather is getting colder and your thoughts turn to warm drinks, you can consider it Fall.

There are two approaches you can take when adding fall flowers to your home: Either bring Fall in and welcome it, or stave it off a little longer with some brighter colors.

Golds, yellows, oranges and bronzes are your traditional fall colors, echoing what’s going on indoors. Set against a warming candle or next to a carved pumpkin, fall-themed flowers from daFlores add natural cheer. Just the act of receiving a delightful decoration will make your loved ones smile. Look to orange roses, sunflowers and our special Fall arrangements for this gift.

But if you want to brighten up the cold, then try something different. We still have sunflowers, lilies, fiery tropical flowers and rich red roses. Choose those warm colors to bring light to a table and your family’s faces. Send these flowers just because, or to bless a Fall birthday or other celebration. Just because winter is taking away your garden, doesn’t mean that you should live without flowers.

No matter what you choose, daFlores will look after you from beginning to end. On our website, pick your language from several choices, then select the country where you’ll be sending your beautiful Fall flowers. You can make your selections based on price or occasion. Add extras like vases or chocolates if you wish. Then fill out the details and we’ll arrange for an experienced florist to hand-craft your flowers and deliver them to the door.

No matter what the season, we at daFlores only ever use flowers that were growing fresh that morning. Send flowers for Fall and celebrate life in a beautiful way.
