Happy New You With Flowers & Plants

By conklyns on December 26, 2018 in Flowers, Holidays. 0 Comments

As the New Year approaches, we begin to think about how we can improve our lives, seeking out healthier practices to make us happier. The floral experts at Conklyn's Florist ask you to consider flowers as a healthy new addition to your new year. Here's why: Flowers reduce stress. Gazing at the color green has been a proven stress-reliever. So, placing a beautiful floral bouquet full of lush greens near you as you work could truly create a more peaceful, serene environment. Flowers freshen the air. Plants and flowers are natural air purifiers, absorbing toxins that can cause headaches, colds, and congestion. Include flowers in your environment and breathe easier than ever. Flowers bring creativity. Studies show that being near your favorite colors is a simple way to improve creative thought. Surround yourself with flowers of every hue to find yourself expanding your mind and thinking outside the box. Read More about Happy New You With Flowers & Plants

Craft A Seasonal Tablescape

By conklyns on October 28, 2018 in Fall, Flowers. 0 Comments

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.

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.
