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. Read More about How To Have A Joyful Earth Day »
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.

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.

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. Read More about Blooming Baskets For Easter »
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. Read More about Smell Good Flowers For Spring »
One of the best ways to entice spring into your home is through flowers. Here in Knoxville, there's still a chill in the air, so it can be hard to envision the glories of the next season---longer, brighter days, plentiful gardens, renewing rains. We at Crouch Florist are already working with our spring flowers, creating designs that speak to this beautiful season. Read More about Spring’s Floral Splendor »
This March 8, remember to honor the women who have been the most influential to you in your life. Think of the teachers, mentors, guides and role models who have made more than an impression, they've made a difference. International Women's Day is just the time to support and celebrate the women who fit that description for you, and besides, more than 100 countries will be celebrating the achievements of women right there with you. Crouch Florist is happy to offer a range of floral designs that would make perfect IWD gifts for those righteous women in your life.
