Every December, friends and family members of fallen veterans honor their memory by participating in Wreaths Across America, a wreath-laying ceremony performed in hundreds of locations across the nation. Begun at Arlington National Cemetery, this significant tribute is an opportunity to Remember, Honor and Teach. This is a meaningful and purposeful way for families who are missing their loved ones during the holiday to honor their memory and heroic acts. The floral artisans at French Florist have designed a beautiful line of holiday wreaths for you to choose for your family’s tribute this season.
Celebrating the holidays often starts with decorating for the occasion. This year, include the children in the decorating plans by having them create do-it-yourself crafts to go with your professional versions. Gorgeous paper poinsettias can accent your home beautifully and leave your family with keepsake ornaments to be enjoyed for years to come. The holiday floral collection at French Florist will make the perfect complement to your homemade craft decorations.
Send glad tidings of goodwill to everyone you know this year with a fabulous gourmet gift basket, lush poinsettia plant or beautiful keepsake ornament. The holidays are a time for giving, and when the gifts you send bring even more holiday spirit, you’ll spread joy and cheer with every delivery. The floral professionals at French Florist have created an amazing holiday best-sellers collection, featuring some of most popular holiday items to send or keep in your own home.
Decorating for the holidays is always a fun endeavor. This year, consider including your home office in your decorating plans. Add a lovely holiday wreath, dish garden or floral bouquet to the room you spend much of your time in. Invigorate and freshen any space with a bit of live foliage this season. The floral designers at French Florist have created a gorgeous collection of living plants, wreaths, and floral bouquets that will bring the spirit of the season to your home office.

While there’s certainly much to be said for following traditions, there are times when creativity can bloom and invent an entirely new way of seeing things. This Thanksgiving, step away from the norm and be inspired to try something a little different. For a great twist on a holiday meal, invite guests to join you for an international feast of thankfulness. Choose an ethnicity or enjoy a cornucopia of flavors and styles when guests bring a dish from their favorite culture. Fuse tradition and creativity when you set your table with lovely linens, china and stemware from holidays gone by. Include a beautiful centerpiece from the collection at French Florist for a lovely reminder of everything you’re thankful for this year.
Autumn, and all its joys and delights has arrived! The warmth and comfort that comes with the fall season can be yours all season long when you decorate to celebrate the season. The floral professionals at French Florist have put together some beautiful centerpieces and great advice about decorating your table for fall this year.
- Break out the formal linens and tableware that only get used for special occasions. The sight of these meaningful items will create a festive spirit throughout your home.
- Remember to create a cohesiveness across your table by keeping everything complementary of each other. Between stemware, china, linens, flatware and centerpieces, if something seems out of place, remove or replace for a continuity at your table.
- Add a few elements to your table that personalize it and give it a cozy feel. If it’s not too perfect, everyone gathered around will be put at ease and feel relaxed, too.
When you think about decorating for fall, try to incorporate more than just bold autumn hues in your decor. Add texture and natural elements as accents for maximum design, depth and substance. The design experts at French Florist have put together some great ideas about how to create a rustic autumn look this season:
- Contrast deep bold harvest hues with bright pastels or even creamy off-whites for an arresting design that pops.
- Draw attention away from eye level. The tops of bookshelves, the bottom steps of a staircase, and low windowsills all provide visually unique areas to arrange fall decor.
- Add harvest texture to your space by including bits of nature in your autumn design. Fall leaves, pine cones, branches and acorns make great accents to beautiful autumn colors while bringing some of the season indoors.
Add a touch of sophistication to your Halloween decorating this season with a beautiful bouquet of fall flowers to represent all things autumnal. The natural beauty of this time of year can be a great addition to any decor and will look fabulous when displayed for your trick-or-treaters or costume party. Make the most of your Halloween this year with excellent natural decorations included in your festivities. The floral experts at French Florist have plenty of great options for decorating your Halloween party with fall hues.
