Want to know what makes us swoon? Designing a seasonal tablescape, that's what.
Here at Central Square Florist, we know that this time of year calls for a massive update of our dining table, and not just for the big day in November. We're refreshing linens, plateware and decor, as well as repairing the upholstery on chairs, polishing up some china and ensuring that we've got everything placed in the sideboard in prep for some holiday hosting. And while these tasks may seem a little mundane, one that is not is designing the overall look of the table. Or, as it's often called, the tablescape.

There's plenty of devilish decor out there this month, and no doubt you've probably planted some cobwebs and headstones in the yard yourself. Who doesn't love a good old fashioned haunted house for Halloween, complete with hanging skeletons and a witch or two? Central Square Florist would never turn down the chance to enjoy some spooktacular decor. But when it comes to decorating for the most macabre of occasions, there's a middle ground between gory and glorious. You may be all about a flurry of ghosts dangling from the mantel, but not so much a vase full of eyeballs on the dining room table. Read More about A Pumpkin Full Of 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 »
It's always a conundrum---what to get dad for Father's Day. Our stalwart dads who typically ask for nothing and give everything aren't forthcoming in telling us what they might want for themselves, so we have to guess. We can assess their hobbies, consider the newest gadgets, but at the end of the day, what can we give them that is meaningful, unique and special? Central Square Florist has a suggestion, and it's green. Very, very green. Read More about Give A Little Zen This Father’s Day »
Memorial Day offers us the chance to remember and celebrate the soldiers in our lives who served their country and sacrificed their lives in doing so. It's also a time when we tend to gather together, owing to the various parades and commemorative ceremonies that unfold over the long weekend. There's something somber, reflective, and yet hopeful and happy about May 28th; we're often with our closest people, looking ahead to summer and enjoying our time together, but we're feeling reverent, too. The designers at Central Square Florist know that there are a range of floral considerations for this weekend, in particular, everything from a nice arrangement for the outdoor table to memorial flowers for the mantel or gravesite. We've got them all. Read More about Flowers To Remember Them By »
