When you think of flowers, passion and romance, Valentine's Day may be your first thought. And in the middle of summer, who is thinking about that holiday? What you may not know is that the entire month of August has been set aside as National Romance Month - which means you have 30 days to convey your feelings, to use your imagination and to really impress your special someone. To give you some inspiration, the experts at Central Square Florist have put together a list of interesting facts about love and romance that just may set the mood.
Let the Flowers Speak: The red rose is the universal flower of true love and passion. But if you're ready to try something new and different, there are many flowers that are just as romantic in meaning. For instance, red tulips provide a strong declaration of true love, while the delicate orange blossom whispers of lasting, eternal love. The daisy is a symbol of innocent, young love, likely due to its association with "she loves me, she loves me not.". Read More about Romance Month Gifts & Flowers »

Blue delphinium is the ideal option for all your July birthday celebrations - including if you are welcoming a new baby boy!

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. Read More about Flower Gardens with a Purpose »
