We here at Norfolk Florist are always excited to bring you the latest in floral artistry, and with the release of International Floral Distributors annual trend report, we can give you a peek into what 2018 will look like, flower-wise.
Of the four trends identified, we're loving IFD's "Positively Posh," where a free-form composition meets just a little modern restraint. Read More about Trendspotting: 2018’s Positively Posh Florals
It's one of our favorite times of year - the unveiling of our Holiday Gift Guide!
Here at Norfolk Florist, we've been working like elves to create stunning seasonal designs that make the most out of holiday blooms and greens. We're reveling in the textures, scents and overall richness of the season, bringing that into the designs we offer you. We also know that you've got a lot of shopping to achieve, and only a few more weeks to do it. That's why our guide is such a cause for celebration; we've made it easy to find something for everyone on your list. We'll even deliver it. Read More about A Peek Into Our Holiday Gift Guide
It's that time again - time for Secret Santa. Since taking off as a fun group gift swap in the later part of the 20th century, Secret Santa has inspired all kinds of variations. You can now participate online, for instance, or take part in Conspiracy Santa or Thieving Santa. And this is to say nothing of the other gift swap games you may be implicated in this year, including Yankee Swap or White Elephant.
In short, this is the season for gift exchange games, a way of making sure everyone in a group gets a present without breaking the bank. We here at Norfolk Florist are here to make sure your gift stands apart from the rest. Read More about A Chic Secret Santa Gift
Giving Tuesday is upon us, a global initiative to promote charitable giving across the world. So how will you spend this November 28? Emphasis on the "spend": after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it's time to take a look at other ways to spend. And we here at Norfolk Florist think that should mean giving back to our Virginia Beach community, which is why we offer a program that does just that. Read More about Flowers That Give Back
It's time to deck those workplace halls again, so gather your coworkers and colleagues, resurrect those boxes of decor from the back office and start hanging the holiday cheer!
Norfolk Florist loves this season for its rich, layered colors and textures. Our arrangements and designs follow suit, lush with winter blooms and greens as well as other organic accents. The holidays are all about appealing to the senses, and it's often the workplace that can benefit from that trend the most. Along with putting up your cherished holiday decor, make sure you and your team are picking up some fresh blooms, too. Read More about Office Decor with Holiday Spirit
This year, don't be afraid to give your Thanksgiving guests something bold to look at. No, we at Norfolk Florist don't mean the food; we mean the floral focal point of your table, the centerpiece.
It may not seem like the time to take a few decor risks, given that Thanksgiving is one of our most cherished and traditional holidays, but it is. There are so many interpretations of how to do a floral centerpiece now, and one approach we love is a centerpiece series. Read More about Bold Centerpieces for Thanksgiving
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
There are so many ways to thank a veteran on November 11. In our Norfolk community, we gather to do so through parades and observances and parties. In our homes, we host brunches and dinners. We call and email those who are far from us and otherwise acknowledge those neighbors and acquaintances who served their country in the U.S. military, defending and protecting our interests.
We at Norfolk Florist are commemorating right there alongside you. In addition, we've got patriotic flowers just waiting to be delivered to that special hero in your life, or brought home to surprise the one you live with. Read More about Patriotic Flowers for Veterans Day
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
Halloween lends itself to decorating - the rich, harvest hues and rustic textures provide an instant fall update to our homes. At Norfolk Florist, we're not afraid to scare up some boo-tiful Halloween designs, either, showcasing the best florals the season has to offer with a few twists here and there. Have some fun with your flowers during this most whimsical of holidays, whether you're decorating the doorstep or the dining room table. Read More about Decorate with Boo-tiful Halloween Designs
