Bring the Summer Indoors!

It’s bright and gorgeous outside.  The flowers are blooming, the sky is clear, everything seems alive and brilliantly colored.  You just can’t wait to get out there and enjoy it!  But then you step outside and feel that relentless summer heat and the humidity, and you go running for the air conditioner.  That’s summer—it looks amazing, but some days, moving through that heat is a chore.  So why not bring some summer inside where you can enjoy it without melting? Using pillows, blankets, tablecloths, and rugs with bright, colorful prints is a great way of making a room look lighter and feel more summery. If you don’t like bright patterns, you can go with some summer colors.  Lighter colors like sky blue and light green can help make a room brighter and feel more like summer.  Any color you see outdoors can work well in your home, although don’t use too many dark or bold colors. Flowers, of course, are a great way of bringing the summer indoors.  Pick your favorite flowers and fill your home with them!  This not only gets you the bright colors of summer, but it also brings in the scents of summer, too! Naturally, you can cut some of the flowers growing in your flowerbed, but if you don’t have any, we can help you.  Let us deliver some gorgeous summer flowers in Roanoke, VA, right to your...

Mother’s Day Movies you can Watch with Mom

Looking for an activity you can do with your mom that doesn’t involve trying to get a reservation at a restaurant or tickets to an event?  Why not stay home and have a movie night with mom?  You can make your favorite snacks and enjoy some of these great movies!  Now, while there are plenty of tear-jerkers out there, that might not be the right tone for you and your mom.  Here are a few different movies that might be perfect for you. I Remember Mama – A classic older movie that tells the story of Katrin and her family. Psycho – We did say “different!”  Hitchcock’s tale is great for any mom who would rather watch something a little more suspenseful. Little Women – There are a lot of different versions of this classic tale out there, including a contemporary version starring Winona Ryder. Stepmom – If you’re planning a Mother’s Day event with your own stepmother, this is a touching story that you might enjoy.  It stars Julia Roberts and Susan Sarandon, two outstanding actresses. Your mom’s favorite movie – Even if it’s not something you’d think of.  If she loves science fiction, for example, maybe Alien is the way to go!  Pick whatever your mom loves and enjoy the day! Just don’t forget your Mother’s Day flowers in Roanoke, VA.  We’ve got some great...

Administrative Professionals Top Ten Qualities

Administrative Professionals Day is next Wednesday, April 24.  It’s the time of year for executives to thank their hard working assistants and other administrative professionals.  Here are the top ten qualities an amazing admin pro will demonstrate, and they’re just a few reasons why the deserve thanks next week. 1.    They keep your office organized. 2.    They’re the face of your company—many of your clients will meet your admin pro before they meet anyone else in the office, so it’s up to these professionals to create a great first impression. 3.    They keep up-to-date on new technology and products and often train others on how to use them. 4.    They greet everyone with a smile and a friendly hello, making sure all of your visitors and callers feel appreciated. 5.    They know when to keep quiet and don’t pass along office gossip, but they also know when they need to bring something to your attention. 6.    They don’t dwell on problems—they don’t have time to.  Instead, they think of solutions. 7.    They always look professional. 8.    They know you’re under a lot of pressure, especially if you’re working on a large project.  They make sure you’re not bothered by dozens of small problems a day. 9.    They have amazing spelling and grammar skills, and they’ve learned how to decipher your handwriting (which is sometimes a major accomplishment!). 10.    They follow up on tasks and make sure the entire office runs smoothly. Show your administrative professionals how much you appreciate them next week by sending them Administrative Professional Day flowers in Roanoke,...

Why We Love Flowers at Our Special Events

Think about many of the special events you’ve attended: graduations, business gatherings, weddings, funerals, baby showers….  Almost all of these events have flowers somewhere.  Flowers are used to give an event a little bit of decoration, color, and class. How many times do you see someone on an empty stage?  Very rarely.  Even if there’s a podium, there are also often large potted plants or flowers on either side of it.  This helps add some color to the stage and make it visually more interesting.  These flowers normally don’t distract from the speaker since they’re designed to complement the stage, not overpower it. Flowers are, of course, commonplace at many events like weddings and such.  These flowers add the perfect touch of elegance and beauty, especially perfectly selected flowers that match the rest of the wedding decorations. But why do we love having flowers at these events?  Is it because of the color?  Maybe it’s the scent?  Whatever it is, everyone loves flowers and having them at events. Need some beautiful flowers for your next special event?  We deliver flowers to all events in Roanoke,...
