Every spring and summer, cities and towns make a big deal out of whatever's growing in their backyards, from California's lavender and poppies to Texas's bluebells and New York's lilac. These local festivals and events go all out to celebrate their most beautiful assets, throwing parades, parties and other activities designed to attract visitors from near and far like, well, bees to honey. Discover a place through its flowers, and get yourself to one of these top spots next year. Read More about A Rose Festival & More Warm-Weather Flower Events »
Flowers. It's hard to think of something else that has inspired artists as much as these enchanting beauties. History is filled with examples of paintings and music that take inspiration from flowers, plants and herbs, often making use of them as symbols and metaphors. Sometimes, they are simply examined, praised or otherwise honored in a piece for their beauty, grace, strength and connection to the natural world. Many of our greatest painters have been moved to capture flowers in their work, exploring a blossom's extraordinary beauty and mystery, while songwriters and performers have taken flower names for titles and used their qualities to stand in for human ones. Neaubauer's Flowers thinks that this has never been more the case than for the rose, a flower that art and music have always been in love with. Read More about Flowers In Art And Music »

“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows/Where oxlips and the nodding violet grow/Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine/With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.”
Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream makes much of the season's flowers (see above), and it's not hard to understand why. Summer brings so many blossoms to the peak of loveliness, and it does the same for our vegetable gardens and our fruits. This makes it the perfect time to host a dinner party or any such gathering that takes its inspiration from June's easy elegance, it's sense of romance and sensuality. We here at Neubauer's Flowers aren't talking a backyard BBQ (though those are great); no, we mean a casually sophisticated event that is lit by candlelight or moonlight. Where the table is laden with platters of salmon, dishes of ceviche, cups of sorbet. Where the bright flavors of summer are captured in food and in flowers.

Every season has its particular showstopper flowers and its special designs. In summer, we build arrangements that are wild and lush, full of vivid color and flowers with tons of texture.
