A Classic Choice:
 The traditional flower of friendship is the yellow rose, which also fittingly signifies loyalty. For a gift that is as cheerful as it is meaningful, have a bouquet of these bright blooms delivered to her home or office.  Of course, If she has a favorite flower that she would prefer, send them along with a few yellow roses mixed in for the perfect custom summer design.

The heat is on in Cambridge, and summer is in full swing. But just when it seems like things can’t get any hotter, along comes the July birth flower, the cool blue delphinium. This refreshingly serene flower cools down a hot Boston day and adds an air of comfortable relaxation. Blue delphinium is the ideal option for all your July birthday celebrations – including if you are welcoming a new baby boy! Central Square Florist has all the summer flowers you’ll be looking for to decorate all your special occasions this season.

Flower Gardens with a Purpose

Flower Gardens

We love living outdoors in the summertime, and flower gardens add both color and beauty to any outside space. Whether a true garden planted in the soil, potter plants or dish gardens, plants and flowers can make all the difference in your summer landscape. But planned correctly, you can also encourage some very special guests to your backyard or front porch – both bees and butterflies are attracted to bright blooms and specific plants – and Central Square Florist would love to help you to create a welcoming space for them.

Why Bees? At first thought, you may not think attracting bees is a good thing. But the bee population is in rapid decline globally, which has dire implications for our food supply. So even the smallest efforts to give the bees a place to collect nectar and pollinate is doing the world good! And don’t worry – experts say that honeybees foraging for nectar will rarely sting. In fact, unless they are harassed or stepped on, you should have no issue watching them work.  Continue reading

Patriotic Parties for the Fourth

Of all the summer celebrations, we might love the 4th of July the best. Whether attending a local parade, getting together with friends at a barbecue, or gathering under the stars for a spectacular fireworks display, the day is filled with memories from start to finish. Patriotic parties are a tradition, and the red, white and blue is everywhere you look. This year, make sure your annual event is adorned with flowers that exude the spirit of the day – after all, what party is complete without flowers?

Why Do Other Countries Celebrate July 4th? Seems a little strange that other nations, such as Denmark, England, Norway, Portugal, and Sweden have fireworks to commemorate the American holiday. The reason is that thousands of people emigrated to the U.S. in the early 1900s, and these countries hold events to attract tourists, as well as for the benefit of American troops stationed abroad.  Continue reading
