How did you get into floral work?

You might say I experienced an 'ah-ha' moment when I designed my very first centerpiece. I had found my passion! Read More about Meet Our Floral Designer & Mom »

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.

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. Read More about A Basket Of Easter Blooms »
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. Read More about The Essence of Hyacinth »

On March 8, we here at Curran's Flowers will join thousands of women from over 100 countries across the world in celebrating International Women's Day, an occasion reserved for honoring the achievements of women. There are many ways to acknowledge the women who have been the most influential in your life---mentors, teachers, guides, role models---and many cultures have their own gifting traditions for this day. In Italy, they exchange yellow mimosa flowers, and in Russia, flower sales are bigger than on Valentine's Day. It's no stretch to say that sending the most important women in your life a bouquet on IWD is a global event. Read More about Unforgettable Flowers For Unforgettable Women »
