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 »
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.

Summer in Cambridge and Boston is a special time. We have warm days, but it is still not uncomfortable. There is a host of outdoor activities, whether you want to try sailing, exploring the Freedom Trail, or taking a bicycle tour. And extended daylight hours means that we have more time to get together with family and friends - in fact, sharing a meal in the summer is practically a tradition! Whether you prefer a barbecue at the beach pavilion or a dinner party in your backyard, Central Square Florist would like to remind you to bring along flowers! We know that gorgeous summer bouquets and centerpieces turn a normal event into a special occasion - and they also make lovely hostess gifts.
This summer, don't have a gathering without the beauty that flowers bring to your table - shop our Summer Collection now! Read More about Summer Flowers for Beautiful Summer Tables »

By the numbers, there are approximately 71 million Dads in the United States. About 25 million of them have children under age 18, and just under 2 million are single dads. We've been celebrating Father's Day officially for 51 years (it was established by Lyndon Johnson in 1966), and Hallmark tells us that 74 million Father's Day cards will be purchased and exchanged.
But buried in all those numbers is one very special father - yours! When it comes to go look for gifts for Dad, we suggest stopping by Central Square florist, or browsing our online Father's Day gift collection. After all, he probably doesn't need another necktie or phone charger. Let us help you to find a gift he will really enjoy. Read More about Celebrating Father’s Day with Gifts for Dad »
