If you haven’t celebrated Galentine’s Day (February 13th) before, now’s the time to start. This day devoted to celebrating female friendships is catching on like wildfire, with more and more women electing to honor their besties each year.
The idea sprang from a 2010 episode of NBC’s Parks and Recreation, with main character Leslie Knope taking all of her ladies out to lunch and giving them gifts. Knope dubbed it “Galentine’s Day,” and the rest is history. Here at French Florist, we love the idea of an occasion to fete your friends with flowers. In fact, we’re wondering why it took so long.
There are some resolutions we make that we just won’t keep up. We have the best of intentions, but when it comes to sticking to a goal that we set at New Years, it’s often the case that we can’t quite commit to it for a full year. But we here at French Florist believe that resolutions tied to health and well-being are important, and we’ve got just the thing to help you with that.
Flowers For A Year is a program that promises to fill 2018 with flowers, and it does just that.
There’s no doubt that flowers make us feel better, whether we are the receiver or the giver. But why?
Study after study has looked at the effects of flowers on well being, and made some surprising conclusions. For instance, hospitalized patients who have flowers or potted plants in their room use less pain medication and have lower blood pressure than their flower-less counterparts. A Rutgers researcher found that flowers didn’t just make people happy in the moment they were received, but continued to do so days after. Flowers promote a rosy outlook, oxygenate the air, bring the outdoors in . . . in other words, they are the perfect get well gift, or so we think here at French Florist.
There are almost too many occasions for which flowers are called for in winter – holidays, parties, romantic dinners by the fire. It’s no wonder that designs tend to get a little more festive and a lot more luxurious during this season; we’re in a good mood, and we want to celebrate.
One of our favorite things about winter flowers here at French Florist is the palette it introduces into our home. Cold-weather blooms can be bold – vibrant red roses and splays of evergreen – or serene, as if taking its cue from the snowy scene elsewhere in the country.
French Florist is always looking to add to our bag of floral design tricks, which is why International Floral Distributors trend report for 2018 is something we’re excited to cover. It’s both design inspo and a peek into what everyone will be talking about when it comes to flowers next year.
Of the four trends identified, we’re loving “Incarnation of Earth’s Elements,” which may be a cumbersome mouthful, but we assure you, the look itself is anything but.
