Craft A Seasonal Tablescape

Autumn is upon us and that means there are plenty of opportunities for seasonal entertaining. This year, the designers at Conklyn’s Flowers have put together some great tips and beautiful centerpieces to help your fall tablescape look its best. Create a modern cornucopia by filling a wide, wooden or metal container with hardy fall fruits and vegetables, gourds, and leafy accents. Artichokes, apples, pears, and kale are among the pieces that will give your table a rustic look. Create a unique twist on candlelight centerpieces when you carve mini-pumpkins into votives and float in a shallow container of water. Use blanched pumpkins and a clear glass container for a more elegant look. Something as simple as green apples in a wicker basket atop an all-white or cream table will stand out and symbolize the freshness of the harvest season beautifully.

Honor Your Hardworking Boss

Bosses Day is approaching this month and the creative team at Conklyn’s Flowers is eager to help you celebrate by acknowledging your boss with gifts, cards and of course, flowers! Bosses Day began in 1958 when a Cleveland employee, Patricia Bays Haroski, observed the hard work her boss put into his job daily. Her boss also happened to be her father, and she chose his birthday as the day of honor for all Bosses Days to come. When you have a boss whose encouragement, mentorship and honesty goes unnoticed most days of the year, it’s important to take time to honor them and show your gratitude for everything they do.

Flower Gifts That Heal

If you’ve even been hospitalized, you know how soul-filling it is to receive flowers from people who are thinking of you.
