Floral Traditions We All Embrace

Conklyn's Florist has been a part of nearly every floral tradition on the books, and we like it that way. While it's a pleasure to be on the receiving end of a floral gift exchange, it's more rewarding to be the giver, we think. There are so many occasions for offering flowers, so many customs and rituals we've inherited by people like our grandparents, who will be celebrated on September 9.

Stylish White Flower For Labor Day & Beyond

Historically, the use of white after Labor Day in your wardrobe or decorating has been a huge faux-pas. In the late 19th century, women abided by serious fashion rules to distinguish old, respectable money from the less-desirable, nouveau-riche up-and-comers who followed the Civil War. By the 1950s, women were publically encouraged to stop wearing white, a summer favorite, when Labor Day was over. However, more modern, on trend fashion experts have found that breaking this rule in favor of winter textures and materials is a great option. Conklyn’s Florist suggests that the same is true of your decorating scheme, and we’re here to help you make it great. Read More about Stylish White Flower For Labor Day & Beyond »

Everything You Need To Know About Beautiful Bees

We’ve all heard by now that there is an issue where bees are concerned. Their population is declining fast and that could easily lead to a worldwide food shortage, since bees are responsible for pollinating such a high quantity of our world’s food sources. But do you know how easy it is to play a role in reversing this problem? Bees don’t need much to be effective. Some shade for hot days, a little water so they don’t dehydrate, and a gorgeous variety of flowers is all it takes to encourage bees to thrive. Conklyn’s Flowers encourages you to include bee-friendly flowers like peonies, milkweed and lavender in your garden or yard. Read More about Everything You Need To Know About Beautiful Bees »

Summer’s Top Floral Tunes, Handpicked

One of the best parts of summer is the excuse we finally have to spend as much time as possible outdoors, enjoying the natural world.

Paradise Found, In Flowers

You may not be traveling to paradise this summer, but there's no reason not to act like it. Let us at Conklyn's Flowers explain. When summer rolls around, we all get bitten by the travel bug. For some of us, the desire to get out and see the world is intense, for others of us, it's more of a general excitement and curiosity about the rest of the world. There are so many different reasons to explore other places: to learn and discover, to rest and recover, and on and on and on. One thing we can all agree on is that travel is inspiring and introduces us to new sights, sounds and, lets face it, delicious food. Even if you aren't going somewhere enticing this summer, you can bring florals into your home that will make it feel as though you have. Read More about Paradise Found, In Flowers »
