Start Your Self Care With A Plant

When we think of self-care, it can sometimes feel overwhelming to know where to start. A balanced diet, some exercise, a daily meditation are all good starts. When it comes to our environment, we can add elements that make our surroundings more peaceful, welcoming and enjoyable. Photos of happy memories, lovely scented candles and living green plants placed strategically throughout your home or office can personalize a space. Conklyn’s Flowers has beautiful plants that are not only gorgeous to display, but also have the power to energize your environment, bringing nature to you for balanced harmony in your space.

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. While the flowers themselves can brighten your room and be a lovely addition to any decor, the thought behind the flowers is so special. It’s encouraging to know loved ones are thinking about you and wishing you well. At Conklyn’s Flowers, we know how powerful the giving of flowers can be, not just for the recipient, but often for the giver as well. It’s a wonderful way to feel helpful, at least emotionally, when someone you love is going through a difficult time. Read More about Flower Gifts That Heal »

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 »
