Floral Bouquets for Grandparents Day

"Truth be told, being a grandma is as close as we ever get to perfection. Clouds nine, ten, and eleven." – Bryna Nelson Paston A recent study revealed that 75% of grandparents thought of that role as the single most fulfilling experience of their lives - and over 90% of grandparents spoke of their grandchildren every single day. There is no doubt that grandparents adore their grandchildren, and the feeling is mutual. In fact, we know that children who grow up with involved grandparents have a greater sense of self, feel more secure, and have more confidence than those who do not. This is attributed to the legacy and history that the older generation represents - and it is that dynamic which we celebrate with National Grandparents Day. If you are looking to thank your grandparents for all that they add to your life, the floral designs from Crouch FLorist are a beautiful start.  Read More about Floral Bouquets for Grandparents Day »

Back to College Dorm Room Ideas

This fall, approximately 20 million students will enter college. Of these, over 12 million will be full time, and 20% of them will live in college dormitories. If your student is one of those students excitedly - and anxiously - awaiting the college dorm room experience, you can help ease their minds a bit by setting up their space with touches from home. Whether her favorite stuffed animal from childhood, his favorite sports posters, or a framed photo of best friends from high school - surrounding themselves with familiar things can go a long way to helping them through the transition. Make it Homey: Transforming a college dorm room from a sterile space to one of comfort may take a little work, but will be worth it. Green plants may not be your first thought when it comes to dorm room decor, but should be considered - they provide many benefits aside from their beauty.

Beautiful Hydrangea Summer Designs

This season, fill your home with fresh summer flowers from Crouch Florist - we have all the beautiful blooms that will bring style, color, and a refreshing ambiance to your decor. Hydrangeas exhibit large, generous blossoms and a soft, beautiful palette - and are one of our favorite summer flowers. Although often used as a floral backdrop in mixed bouquets, we recommend trying something different and showcasing this beauty all by itself. The lush flower is worthy of the July spotlight! Did You Know? Hydrangea are primarily found in shades of pink and blue. Although there are approximately 75 varieties of hydrangea, the color is not determined by the variety but by the acidity or alkalinity of the soil. A hydrangea bush will have blue flowers if the soil is acidic and pink flowers if the soil is alkaline. Green hydrangea are often more mature flowers that were once blue or pink but change as the "age".  Read More about Beautiful Hydrangea Summer Designs »
