Central Square Florist loves a good floral tradition, and luckily, there are plenty to choose from. This September 9 happens to be Grandparents Day, a time to honor the people who may be the most responsible for passing down a strong sense of tradition to us in our lives. It's those traditions that connect us to them---the fresh cut sunflowers our grandmother always brought in from the garden, our grandfather's wedding boutonniere preserved in a keepsake box.

Central Square Florist joins you in celebrating the American worker this coming Labor Day, which we suppose includes all of us! Historically, the first Monday in September has been intended as a kind of reward to those of us who have worked hard to accomplish our goals and provide for our families. It's meant as a day of rest and relaxation, and indeed that's how many of us celebrate. As the end of a long weekend that marks the end of summer, Labor Day is a great time to do a little self-care, starting with flowers. Read More about Yes You Can Have White Flowers After Labor Day »
Be friends with bees, we here at Central Square Florist say. Why? Well for starters, they pollinate 80% of all flowering plants, including 90 of the most-consumed food crops. Like avocados? Apples?

It's a romance, in fact. Read More about Flowers That Bees Love & You Will Too »
Central Square Florist knows the thrill of receiving flowers, the joy in bringing them home for yourself, the delight there is in sending them to someone else. Many of us have dedicated spots in our homes for where our flowers will go every time we have them: smack dab in the middle of the dining table, always on the credenza, forever posing in the entryway. But there are some considerations about where to place flowers based on what kind you have. A humidity-hardy orchid does well in a bathroom, for instance, while a super fragrant bouquet isn't the best choice for the dining room table.

When summer hits, there's one thing we all want to do: travel.
But it doesn't always work out that way.

But Central Square Florist has some good news: you don't have to go anywhere to bring a sense of place into your home. You can create a worldly, well-traveled feeling in your space without packing a single bag. How? We're so glad you asked. Read More about Evoke The English Countryside Through Flowers »
