Encourage Change on International Women’s Day

We are excited to celebrate International Women’s Day this month on March 8! This is a day in which women worldwide celebrate the strides they have made toward gender parity and support one another in the efforts to change our world for the better. International Women's Day is not specific to any particular organization or nationality. Rather, it has become a global movement over the past 100 years to bring positive change to our lives. The floral designers at Conklyn's Florist would love to help you design a gorgeous bouquet of flowers for the foward-thinking women in your life. Encourage change on International Women's Day by supporting the women who work so hard for this year's theme: Balance for Better. Read More about Encourage Change on International Women’s Day »

Happy New You With Flowers & Plants

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 »
