As we introduce the new Floral Trends forecasted for 2019, we are excited to share with you some of our favorites. At Norfolk Florist we are loving the daring new floral trend, Hear Me Roar. This design is full of bold color and sleek modern architecture. This look specifically features shades of red, berry, orange, burnt orange and yellow, often in layers of monochromatic design meant to be as stylish and modern as you are. Undertones of teal, grays and browns lend a warm but fashion-forward appeal to this design, and structured, sturdy sculptures allow the bright colors to dominate attention. the complexity of this look ultimately comes from hand-crafted designs that steer clear of mass-produced appearances.

While autumn is settling in all around us, we know you’re ready to start decorating and entertaining for the season. The floral professionals at Norfolk Florist have some great tips for creating a lasting and stunning tablescape the season.
Using a mix of water and flower food, soak floral foam just until saturated. Don’t over-soak or leave too long- the foam will begin to disintegrate.
Place greenery evenly in the foam, leaving plenty of space. You should still be able to see most of the foam, even after adding foliage.
After cutting flower stems short and at an angle, clean excess foliage from stems. Add flowers to floral foam by distributing evenly.
View your design from every angle to be sure it looks full and even on every side. Read More about An Autumn Centerpiece For Your Table
As you celebrate fall in all its splendor this season, take a few moments to consider the best ways to decorate your home for this cozy season. The design experts at Norfolk Florist have some great tips for bringing the essence of autumn into your home this fall.
Energize and invigorate your space by going beyond fall colors this year. Use harvest-inspired textures like dried corncobs, rustic wooden containers and tall tree branches to add depth, height and dimension to your home.
Bring a warm, positive vibe indoors with subtle hues accented by pops of bright oranges and yellows. Pumpkins, squash, oranges and lemons artfully displayed among floral arrangements with a variety of shapes will give your entire home a peaceful coziness.
The fragrance of fresh baked apples and cinnamon or crisp fall leaves will evoke memories of times gone by, adding a nostalgic touch to your decor. Read More about Vibrant, Textured Decor For Fall

Have you been invited to Thanksgiving in someone else's home? A beloved family member or friend, perhaps, who is going to pull off the biggest, feastiest dinner of the year for several lucky guests?
If so, you're not alone. Last year, 50 million Americans traveled over hill and dale to gather round someone else's table. And while you may be planning to contribute some stuffing or your signature green bean casserole to the mix, we at Norfolk Florist think you should come bearing flowers as well. And because we aren't totally biased toward flowers, we're suggesting chocolate, too. Read More about Great Gifts for Holiday Hosts

We at Norfolk Florist highly recommend decorating with dahlias and mums, the "It" flowers of Fall. Read More about Decorating with Dahlias and Mums
