When Marian McQuade first developed the idea of Grandparents Day, it was with the idea that families would have an opportunity to set aside time for one another. With 15 children, 43 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren, it’s reasonable to think she was excited about seeing several generations in one place. Today, we celebrate this special day on the second Sunday of September. Curran’s Flowers recommends bringing your special grandparent their favorite flowers to commence Grandparents Day. Have children ask grandparents about their own childhood. With so many memories to tap into, certainly a few stories are sure to arise. Read More about Great Floral Traditions To Carry On »
How you choose to decorate your home says a lot about you. For instance, if you choose to use white when decorating after Labor Day, maybe you’re an independent thinker who feels comfortable breaking tradition. After all, many of the “no white after Labor Day” rules had a lot to do with simply staying cool in warmer months. However, using fall or winter textures in shades of white or ivory can have a dramatic impact with a unique flair. The floral artisans at Currans Flowers have some amazing white designs to share with you as you make your own rules about styling your home. Read More about White Floral Styles That Work All Year »
We don't know about you, but here at Curran's Flowers, we love a good summertime soiree.
There's something about this season that invites us to relax, unwind and indulge. There's the sense that we can move from indoors to out and back again, transitioning between a quiet table on the patio to the formal one inside. We entertain with the idea of putting our guests at ease and celebrating the long, temperate days that stretch into the night. Our soirees are soundtracked to cicada and serve up the garden's goodies---heaping salads accented by colorful vegetables. On our dinner menus, delights such as ceviche and sangria appear, as though we can finally get away with serving spicy, citrusy, brightly-flavored food. The flowers we use to accent our menus and our gatherings in general should be just as bright. Read More about A Feast Of Food And Flowers »
In honor of National Best Friend's Day on June 8, there's peonies.
We here at Curran's Flowers aren't saying that peonies exist exclusively as a gift to give your besties, but we are saying that they are the perfect friendship flower. Think about it. Manifold layers as delicate as tissue paper, a soft, sweet fragrance, a pastel palette . . . There's simply nothing more special than a peony, a flower as dramatic as roses but without the passion and ardor built in. Instead, a peony is a bright, uplifting bloom to offer. It's romantic, modern and special-seeming. Read More about Peony Perfection For Your Besties »
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.
