At Conklyn's Flowers, we're well aware of the many benefits of flowers on the mind and body. Study after study shows that flowers have all kinds of beneficial impacts. Along with being aesthetically pleasing, they also have the power to make us feel genuinely better: According to a 2008 American Society of Horticultural Science report, patients who have flowers or potted plants in their hospital room use less pain medication and have lower blood pressure overall compared to their flower-less counterparts.

When it comes to decorating your house for the winter season with florals and greens, there are many options. You'll see dozens of holiday arrangements - we at Conklyn's Flowers have them in spades - as well as roses by the dozen (never out of style), blooming plants and wreaths. The palette seems to be clear: red and green. There's an emphasis on rustic texture, and the use of other organic elements in designs (think pine cones and red berries). Flower designs also enjoy a moment of luxury; we embrace lavish displays and abundance in all forms. Read More about The Season’s Prettiest Blooms

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
