Wearing or decorating with white after Labor Day used to be a huge no-no. Some say this decision can be traced back to post Civil War days, when the wives of the affluent wanted to be set apart from the nouveau riche. Creating arbitrary fashion rules allowed the “old money” women to know who to talk to and who to avoid. Today, fashion and decorating trends can be adopted or dismissed depending on your personal preference and style. The floral artisans at French Florist are eager to introduce you to our all-white arrangements that will look amazing in your home before or after Labor Day!
As you may have heard by now, the population of bees is on the decline. Each year the number of pollinating bees drops by another 30%, placing several bee species on the endangered list and creating a problem for food growers. But we can do our part by inviting bees into our own yards and gardens, where they can find a safe haven from pesticides, climate change and invasive species that threaten their lives. French Florist recommends that you include bee-friendly flowers with bright blooms and simple petals, create ground shade for hot days and some water for hydration and watch your bees get to work.
