Summer In A Basket. You’re Welcome.

Are you anticipating the arrival of summer as much as we are here at Crouch Florist? There are so many things to look forward to: Independence Day, grilling out in the backyard, floating in the pool, traveling to visit friends and family. Yes, it’s hot, but that’s also what makes everything so darn beautiful outside, especially our plants and flowers. The ones we bring into our spaces over the summer usually reflect the season’s spirit; they’re a little brighter, a little bolder and our designs with them pack a little more punch. One of our favorite ways to express a sense of summer is to, well, put it in a basket.

The Weekend We’ve Been Waiting For

Memorial Day is first and foremost an occasion to remember and to celebrate the legacy of those soldiers who sacrificed their lives in service to country. But it’s also a time when we get together with friends and family to take advantage of an additional “weekend” day on what is thought of as the cusp of summer. We long to be outside, so we host our parties and dinners there. We want to soak in the pool, and it’s often warm enough to do so. We want to enjoy a barbecue that goes way past sundown because, frankly, we can. No matter how you’re planning to spend Memorial Day, flowers are in order. Crouch Florist has the perfect ones.

Anything But Boring Boutonnieres

The end of the school year is just around the corner, and we here at Crouch Florist are ready for it. We love to see our high school juniors and seniors prepping for prom—arguably the biggest dance of their lives—and helping them find their wearable flowers. These days, corsages, wristlets and yes, boutonnieres have gotten an upgrade. The latter are modern, elegant and hip, as statement-ready as the corsages they complement. Any guy would love to suit up with one of these babies on his lapel.

Giving The Pothos Plant To Teachers And Nurses

May 6 through May 12 is both Nurse and Teacher Appreciation Week, a double-whammy of celebrations for those people who educate, nurture, protect and otherwise empower the rest of us. Since these are two fields primarily dominated by women, Crouch Florist likes to think of this week as the chance to honor our “super ladies,” many of whom are also moms, sisters, aunts, friends, neighbors and colleagues. They embody many roles all at once, and their resilience, intelligence and time-management skills should be honored all year long.

How To Have A Joyful Earth Day

First things first: Earth Day falls on April 22 this year, a global event designed to celebrate our beautiful planet and promote awareness about how to take care of it. Doing something to preserve our environment is a huge part of why Earth Day exists—though Crouch Florist thinks we should be doing so all year long—but it’s not the only reason we observe this day. There’s a lot to be said for drawing attention to the Earth’s natural resources and abundance, its fruits and riches; if we admire and appreciate them, we’ll feel more deeply connected to our planet. Then we’ll see how important it is to take care of it. Spend the day at a recycling drive or environmental fair or clean-up, but also remember to revel in nature, feeling grateful for what it gives us.

Giving Your Desktop A Little Awareness

We’ve made it through winter and officially into spring. We’ve shined up our homes, cleaned up our yards, and now it’s time to turn our attention to the work place. Desks need love, too, and if there’s one thing we know here at Crouch Florist, it’s how to make a work surface really shine. That’s why we’re campaigning on behalf of sad desks everywhere, bringing a little awareness to the predicament of cluttered, disorganized or totally bereft work surfaces that could use a major refresh.

A Green Refresh For Spring

There are countless reasons to celebrate the arrival of spring, and we here at Crouch Florist certainly have no shortage of reasons to do so ourselves. One of those reasons happens to be the big spring clean, which, as daunting as it sounds, is actually a welcome addition to the calendar. The sense of purity and clarity you have after revamping and refreshing your home is like no other, as if you’ve created space for an entire season to fill it.

Blooming Baskets For Easter

We love baskets here at Crouch Florist, which should come as no surprise to anyone, since we’re big fans of great containers for flowers and plants. But the messaging behind giving a basket is what makes them so special, we think. When you offer a gift in a basket, you’re also offering a sense of comfort and plenty. Whatever is in a basket automatically feels special, just by virtue of the way it’s been delivered.

Smell Good Flowers For Spring

One of the defining characteristics of roses is how they smell, and on that point, there is a lot of variation. A whopping 300 chemicals make up the scent of a rose, though only a handful are responsible for that final, takeaway aroma. The rich, heady scent of this bloom also varies from one to the next—it turns out no two are alike, fragrance-wise. Here at Crouch Florist we may have a nose for such things, but we’re continually surprised by the sheer range of scents.
