The flowers we love for spring and summer make the perfect gift for a best friend, who you'll want to be celebrating June 8. Why? That's National Best Friend's Day, an occasion reserved to honor our most precious of friendships and the people who embody them. Frankly, we here at Neubauer's Flowers think exchanging floral gifts on this day could become a yearly tradition, along with going to brunch, lunch, dinner, cocktails . . . Whatever floats your friendship boat. Read More about A Bright Bouquet For The Bestie »
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. Read More about A Peek At Summer’s Flowers »
If you're hosting a backyard barbecue, dinner or other event that takes place in your backyard or on the patio, you're not alone.

Neubauer's Flowers knows this is often the first party or dinner of the summer taking place outside, so our recommendation? Have a little fun with it.

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. Read More about Take Stock Of The Planet’s Riches On Earth Day »
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. Read More about Are You Desktop Aware? »
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. Read More about Breathe Easier This Spring With Flowers »
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. Read More about An Easter Basket With A Twist »
