Take Stock Of The Planet’s Riches On Earth Day

This Earth Day (April 22), remember to stop and smell the flowers. We here at Neubauer’s Flowers know it’s usually a cliche, but in this case, it’s more important than ever to appreciate the natural resources and riches our planet offers us, especially in the form of flowers and plants. There are many ways to honor the Earth, including everything from recycling drives, clean-ups, environmental fairs and other events. But we also think it’s a time to embrace nature and to grow something green. Earth Day reminds us to nurture and preserve our environment. Flowers and plants give us the chance to do that in our own small patch of the world.

Are You Desktop Aware?

Here at Neubauer’s Flowers we’re participating in an initiative to improve the lives of office desks everywhere, and it’s called “Desktop Awareness.” The message is simple: take a hard look at those work surfaces which, after a long winter, are likely cluttered, disorganized or just totally bereft. We’re calling upon you to do something about this sad predicament just ahead of Administrative Professionals Day on April 25. It’s time to refresh and revive those desks to the benefit of everyone in the workplace. It’s time to top those surfaces with plants and flowers.

Breathe Easier This Spring With Flowers

The orchid. Is there any other flower—especially when it presents itself in white—that is more serene, more pure-seeming, more starkly beautiful?

We here at Neubauer’s Flowers don’t think so, and we also believe that white orchids are the hands-down favorite add to your home for spring. If you do a deep clean every season, as many people do, gracing your home with white orchids is the perfect final touch.

An Easter Basket With A Twist

We know, we know, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” But we here at Neubauer’s Flowers also love to reinvent what is traditional or customary. Take, for example, the Easter basket. You may be thinking of the one filled with chocolate bunnies and Peeps, but we mean the one brimming with blossoms the color of dyed Easter eggs. Baskets signify comfort and plenty. They’re emblematic of this particular holiday, and we love to exchange them. But we also think it’s about time they got a modern update.

The Fragrance of Flowers

At Neubauer’s Flowers, we’ve always got the scent of flowers perfuming our work space, so we can personally attest to how uplifting it can be. And since our sense of smell is so powerful (ask the scientists) and helps us make strong emotional associations, it’s important not to overlook this glorious feature of flowers. Not all blooms are created equal when it comes to fragrance of course, but rest assured, all of them do have their own distinct aroma.

A Sweet Flower Gift You Give Yourself

We here at Neubauer’s Flowers want to make a radical suggestion: buy your own self flowers.

We know, we know. Typically we think of buying for others, or buying for occasions, or buying to commemorate events. We’re not necessarily in the habit of giving ourselves a flower gift, and yet, we should be. Flowers are proven mood-boosters and health preservers. It’s an important act of self-care, buying yourself flowers.

When Your Flowers Help Create The Occasion

For many of us, it’s the flowers we give or receive that are not attached to a major holiday or event that matter most. The meaningful exchanges we make that are personal to us, or the milestone gestures that we never forget—a first corsage, the bouquet we send to our very first crush—are the ones we really don’t forget. Neubauer’s Flowers is there for every flower exchange, but we really enjoy seeing how you create the ones that are most dear to you.
