Flowers bring positive energy and good cheer to every occasion. They brighten the room and lift the spirits, and are an ideal gift for just about any occasion. Conklyn’s Florist has an extensive selection of floral gift ideas for everyone on your list.
February is creative romance month, and our professional florists at Conklyn’s Flowers have endless ideas and a show room brimming with a medley of versatile plants and blooms. If this Valentine’s Day you find yourself tired of the traditional elegant bouquet of roses, we can help you come up with a unique floral arrangement to creatively convey your romantic feelings – no matter your sweetheart’s taste, personal style, favorite colors and flowers.
We are almost to Valentine’s Day, and one of the things we look forward to the most at Conklyn’s Flowers is the chance to do some glorious design work. Our talented artists are happiest when they have a fun floral project on their hands, whether they’re creating it themselves or for you. In both cases, our designers enjoy the chance to show off their expertise and artistry through flowers.
Not all red rose bouquets are created equal, which we here at Conklyn’s Flowers are clear about. Of the many arrangements we design featuring Valentine’s Day’s signature bloom, we’re enormous fans of the ones that mix roses with other flowers, which offers you the chance to communicate more than just ardor and passion. A classic bouquet of red roses is always appropriate when you’re sending it to your sweetheart, but sometimes we want our flower gifts to feel a bit more customized.
Bet you haven’t given the color purple much thought yet this year, but if Pantone has anything to do with it, you’ll be designing your space with it in no time. The color powerhouse has announced their pick for Color of the Year, and it’s . . . drumroll please . . . Ultra Violet, an intriguing purple.
We here at Conklyn’s Florist find this color family a mysterious, evocative, rich palette, and we’ve got ideas about how to bring it into your home.
This February 13th, join us in celebrating Galentine’s Day, an occasion just ahead of V-Day dedicated to celebrating the love every gal has for her besties. The idea sprang from a 2010 episode of Parks and Recreation and struck a nerve: every year, more and more girls gather up their crew and do something fun in honor of friendship, whether that’s a long lunch or a girls night out. They give gifts, too.
Flowers are a natural fit for this event, we here at Conklyn’s Flowers believe. Since they’re beautiful, fragrant, eye-catching, mood-lifting and happy-giving, they’re the perfect choice for your friends.
If you’re looking for a way to start the New Year off with a bang, make a resolution that you can easily achieve. We’re often inclined to set intentions that involve our health or well-being, and while that’s admirable, it’s better still, or so we think here at Conklyn’s Flowers, to set an intention for how we will express our love and devotion to someone else. And that can easily be achieved through flowers.
At Conklyn’s Flowers, we’re well aware of the many benefits of flowers on the mind and body. Study after study shows that flowers have all kinds of beneficial impacts. Along with being aesthetically pleasing, they also have the power to make us feel genuinely better: According to a 2008 American Society of Horticultural Science report, patients who have flowers or potted plants in their hospital room use less pain medication and have lower blood pressure overall compared to their flower-less counterparts.
When it comes to decorating your house for the winter season with florals and greens, there are many options. You’ll see dozens of holiday arrangements – we at Conklyn’s Flowers have them in spades – as well as roses by the dozen (never out of style), blooming plants and wreaths. The palette seems to be clear: red and green. There’s an emphasis on rustic texture, and the use of other organic elements in designs (think pine cones and red berries). Flower designs also enjoy a moment of luxury; we embrace lavish displays and abundance in all forms.
There’s nothing like International Floral Distributors‘ annual trend forecast for flowers to give us just the design inspo we need. Here at Conklyn’s Flowers, we love knowing what lies ahead in 2018 when it comes to floral work. The colors, textures and shapes that everyone will be talking about next year give us plenty to think about now.
Of the four trends identified by IFD, it’s the Positively Posh style that we’re discussing in this week’s blog.
