As we anticipate the Fourth of July, we look forward to get-togethers with friends and neighbors. This is a great opportunity to share our American traditions and heritage. Also, we celebrate our freedom and independence with loved ones. Decorate with a beautiful bouquet of red, white and blue flowers adorning our porches, backyard barbecues and centerpieces of our festive tables. The floral designers at Neubauer’s Flowers have a beautiful line of Independence Day blooms that we’re excited to share with you. So, take a look at our patriotic display and choose something gorgeous for your Fourth of July event this year.
Summertime has arrived and this season has never looked brighter. Whether you are hosting summer barbecues and cookouts, or inviting an intimate group of close friends over for a formal dining event, make sure your table is summer ready. Create gorgeous centerpieces with some of the bright, bold summer flowers Neubauer’s Flowers has to offer. The designers at Neubauer’s Flowers are creating our summer collection to showcase our gorgeous designs specifically with summertime in mind.
Special occasions or eventful moments in our lives are often made more meaningful when we mark them as such. Retirement parties, for instance, are a great way to celebrate the years of service and hard work a person has achieved, while wishing them well on their new adventure in retirement. It also helps make the transition from one role to another a little easier. The floral experts at Neubauer’s Flowers suggest sending or bringing flowers to your next retirement party to celebrate the guest of honor, wish them well, and let them know they’ll be missed.
“The best things in life are free… but you can give them to the birds and bees…” -The Flying Lizzards
We think the best things in life- natural beauty, a fresh garden, beautiful smiles- are free and so enjoyable when you are purposeful about them. Enjoying farm-fresh flowers, fruits and vegetables in your own backyard is right near the top of the list. Bring birds, bees and other delightful creatures to your garden with brightly colored blooms, simple, single-petal flowers, fresh water and a bit of shade. Neubauer’s Flowers encourages you to add bee-friendly blooms and remove toxic pesticides as a recipe for success when creating a safe, natural environment right in your backyard.
Summer’s here, and it’s time to travel. Whether you’re going near or far on vacation this year, adventure is on the horizon. There’s just nothing like experiencing new people, new cultures and new customs. If you’ve planned a staycation instead, Neubauer’s Flowers is happy to tell you that it’s entirely possible to fake a well-traveled vibe in your home. Yes, flowers are involved, but not just any flowers. You’ll want to choose wisely to evoke the feeling you’re after. For a tropical feel, it’s orchid and Bird of Paradise all the way; for a Parisian feel, intricate bouquets full of cascading blossoms.
“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.
If you, like us here at Neubauer’s Flowers, are ready to start fantasizing about summer, read on.
We know, we know. We’re not through with spring yet—it still has plenty of work to do—but there’s every reason to start thinking about what to put in our garden beds for the warm-weather months, or to start imagining that grill-out we’ll be hosting in July. 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. The flowers that go into these pieces and the style of the design itself look right at home on our tables come July and August.
