Some flowers make it easy to transition from spring to summer—we’re looking at you, peony—while others belong decidedly to one camp or the other. Curran’s Flowers is always thrilled when we see (and receive) the new crop from each season; these fresh arrivals always invigorate our designs and offer plenty of inspiration for the season ahead. Summer is no exception, and may give us the most dazzling blooms we see all year. Warm-weather bloomers are real showstoppers; sure, they may be frost-sensitive, but when they come to bloom they revel in their colorful glory, impossible not to fall in love with.
Memorial Day can be a solemn occasion as we remember those soldiers who sacrificed their lives in service to country. The parades and commemorative events that honor them do so with a great deal of reverence and respect, but they also bring us together and remind us that we are, in essence, celebrating the great heroes of our country. We’re on the cusp of summer and it’s a long weekend. Inevitably, we find ourselves hosting or attending dinners, barbecues or outdoor parties. Curran’s Flowers thinks there’s a way to capture the full spirit of Memorial Day in flowers, speaking to both its poignancy and sense of festivity.
In honor of Mother’s Day, Curran’s Flowers is spotlighting one of our own marvelous moms, who offers her insight on the flowers you should give the mamas in your life this May 13.

How did you get into floral work?
I was a stay-at-home mom when my boys were very young, and thought it would be fun to take some floral design courses at the local community college. You might say I experienced an ‘ah-ha’ moment when I designed my very first centerpiece. I had found my passion!

Since 1970, the United States has set aside a day to remember the value and beauty that our world offers us. From the flowers to the trees, the plants all around us create a stunning natural world that we all need to care for. Curran’s Flowers has set out to create some plant arrangements that make it easy to welcome this holiday into you home.
Administrative Professionals Week is the last full week in the month of April. Administrative Professionals Day is Wednesday of that week. It is a time for appreciating the office staff that are the backbone of so many companies. It is also the ideal time to cultivate Desktop Awareness, and Curran’s Flowers can help.
Straight from our greenhouses here at Curran’s Flowers comes a whole host of spring plants and flowers, more vivid and robust than we could ever have expected. Maybe it’s the fact that it isn’t quite spring for us yet here in the Danvers area that makes these beauties appear so vivid, so vibrant. The pinks, blues, yellows and greens we see blossoming in our greenhouses will look even more enchanting when they’re enjoyed in the context of a home.
Curran’s Flowers is pleased to welcome spring, and in particular, Easter. We’ve got plenty of baskets—even the gift kind—but we’re enchanted by the floral designs that our team has blossoming from them. As much as we love the ones filled with Peeps and chocolate bunnies, there’s nothing quite like a veritable garden blooming from a basket.
When you get right down to it, it’s not just that flowers look beautiful. It’s not the dizzying array of colors, the delicate, almost pointillist layers of petals. It’s not just that they unfurl over time or look amazing next to each other, no. Here at Curran’s Flowers, we believe that flowers enchant us because they make a strong appeal to all of the senses, including the olfactory one. When you bring them into your home or work space, flowers act as a living reminder of what awaits outside. They can smell simply fresh or perfume the air with a particular scent. They feel good to the touch—soft but substantial. Flowers are a whole experience.
