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? Mango? Coffee? You have bees to thank. Without these efficient little workers, we'd have a very sad planet indeed. The story of bees is fascinating, and it inevitably involves flowers. 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. Plants are great in the kitchen, since they help remove the air of pollutants and regulate the temperature. It pays to think about which flowers make the best companions to which rooms.

When summer hits, there's one thing we all want to do: travel.
But it doesn't always work out that way. We may have planned an amazing vacation to Bora Bora or Tuscany or the Alps, but this might also be the year where we're sticking close to home, making a few trips here and there but nothing like the milestone vacation we fantasize about during the year. 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 »
Is there a more classic American holiday than the Fourth of July? It has all of our favorite things: being outdoors with friends and family. Potlucks, grill outs, barbecues. Maybe we spend the day at the beach or on the lake, snoozing in the sun or zipping along on a boat, or maybe we stick closer to home, throwing the ball around in the backyard or settling into the kitchen to make our famous potato salad. However we while away the hours before the firework finale, many of us are hosting others in our homes. And that calls for a flower display just as showy as the fireworks themselves, if you ask us here at Central Square Florist. Read More about Get Your Fourth Of July On »

We serve fresh, colorful food with bright, tempting flavors and pass around the wine. There's a sense of looseness and ease that permeates our homes in the summer, and it's that spirit that we try to capture both in the way we entertain and in the decor---particularly flowers---we use to do so. There's no shortage of vibrant designs at Central Square Florist in the summertime, when florals are often at their peak. Read More about Entertain Your Guests With Gorgeous Flowers »
