Many of us spend the long Memorial Day weekend getting together with friends and family. There are commemorative events to remember the fallen heroes in our lives, backyard barbecues and pool parties, parades, dinners and other celebrations. Norfolk Florist knows that many of these events require flowers that speak to the poignant occasion, while others call for something a little more summer-inspired. After all, we're on the cusp of that season, and it's hard to resist enhancing our outdoor spaces with bright flowering plants. Read More about A Bold Plant For Memorial Day »
According to the calendar, spring starts on March 20. We can’t wait to feel those warm daytime spring temperatures and sleep with the windows open until the heat and humidity set in, and we crave air conditioning, but the weather is a fickle thing, and you should never discount the possibility of a late winter or pre-spring storm. Norfolk Florist encourages people in our community to fill their homes and workplaces with the spectacular colors and fragrances of cut flowers. Read More about Spring’s Lush Hydrangea »
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 »
With its dizzying mix of colors and textures, Fall is a decorator's dream. The cooler, shorter days and cozy nights we're starting to get here in Norfolk encourage us to prepare our homes for the season. While you're adding heavier, more luxe fabrics to the couches and tabletops and lining up the scented candles, don't miss the chance to give your floral decor a Fall makeover, too. We at Norfolk Florist highly recommend decorating with dahlias and mums, the "It" flowers of Fall. Read More about Decorating with Dahlias and Mums »
