Include the Symbolic Holly in Your Winter Decor

As the holidays approach, we begin to see signs of tradition everywhere we look. Part of the magic of Christmas is the nostalgia certain songs, images and decor can bring to mind. One of the most traditional aspects associated with Christmastime is the holly plant. This evergreen’s inclusion in winter celebrations is not a new idea; in fact, it dates back to ancient times and has been revered by many cultures as sacred or magical. Today we use it in much of our holiday decorating, and the floral experts at Conklyn’s Florist are here to show you why!  Read More about Include the Symbolic Holly in Your Winter Decor »

Christmas Memorial Wreaths

Each holiday season, we begin to anticipate spending time with friends and loved ones. However, many individuals find themselves missing a fallen veteran, specifically at the holidays. In this case, we suggest participating in one of the many Wreaths Across America wreath-laying ceremonies that occur on December 15th each year. Place a beautiful holiday wreath on your loved one's grave site, or in a special spot in your home where you can memorialize your fallen hero. The holidays are a wonderful time to pay tribute to those who paid the ultimate sacrifices for our families and our nation. The floral designers at Conklyn's Florist have created a gorgeous collection of wreaths for your to choose from. Read More about Christmas Memorial Wreaths »

Stellar Secret Santa Flowers

                    Secret Santa - and its many variations - is a group gift swap practiced throughout the West. It goes by many names depending on where you are, but the premise is always the same: gifters and giftees are randomly assigned, and the person giving the gift must conceal their identity from the one who receives it. Until the big reveal, that is. At Conklyn's Flowers, we're fans of every gift-giving scenario, and we've got just the thing for this one. Read More about Stellar Secret Santa Flowers »
