Summertime is the right time to entertain with style in your home. Whether you’re indoors or out, there’s a casual elegance to a warm-weather dinner party or other gathering that lends itself to fresh fruits and veggies, platters of salmon, bowls of ceviche or a board of charcuterie. Have a light and luscious dessert waiting in the wings, and don’t forget to chill the wine. And like a cherry on top, you’ll want to add beautiful seasonal flowers to the table courtesy of Griffin’s Floral Design.
If you got married in June, you’re not alone. More people tie the knot this month than any other on the calendar. When we here at Griffin’s Floral Designs think of June, we think of sunny rain showers—which keeps everything green and growing—blue skies, the dawn of summer and flowers that are at their peak. It’s a wonderful time to have a wedding that will showcase flowers because there are so many beautiful options. And where there are weddings, there are anniversaries, which also call for fresh blooms.
One of the best tributes you can make to your lasting commitment is to offer your sweetheart a gorgeous vase of flowers.
Let’s face it, there are two or three things you can always count on your dad to happily receive. Maybe it’s a book, his favorite snack or a new set of golf balls. These are your go-to gifts come Father’s Day—June 17 this year—and they bring a smile to his face every time. Griffin’s Floral Designs has something in mind that will make a neat surprise for him this year, but definitely doesn’t go outside the comfort zone. In fact, we have a feeling that once you give him a gift like this, he’ll start expecting it year after year.
June 8 is National Best Friend’s Day, and you’re going to want to give yours flowers. Here’s why.
Griffin’s Floral Design is awash in spring and early summer’s most beautiful blooms, which are manifold. We’ve worked them into pieces that are just perfect for the season and that feature a pastel palette, striking shapes and textures, and the sweetest, lightest fragrance. These flowers were made to communicate how dear your BFF is to you, and to look incredible while doing it.
Are you excited for the arrival of summer but sad to see spring go? Don’t be. There’s so much overlap between these two seasons (yes, one is definitely hotter and its days are longer), that the transition doesn’t have to be difficult. One way to celebrate what these warm weather months have in common is to pull the flowers they have in common together into a beautiful arrangement that speaks to the warm spirit of both. Griffin’s Floral Designs knows that summer’s blooms tend to be a bit more assertive and bolder in color, leaving behind the softer hues of spring. But we think we have the perfect piece that bridges the very small gap between both.
Memorial Day can be a solemn occasion, but it’s also the chance to come together with friends and family to remember our heroes and to celebrate the coming of summer. The three-day weekend provides us with an opportunity to see the people in our lives now and to commemorate the ones we have lost. Griffin’s Floral Designs recognizes that this is a time when people host backyard barbecues and pool parties, taking advantage of the extra time to enjoy each other’s company. And where there’s company, there’s flowers.
Mother’s Day is a big deal for the floral industry—some have even called it the “Superbowl of Flowers”—and we here at Griffin’s Floral Design understand why. Flowers have been with us since ancient times, evolving over millennia into the enticing blossoms we know and love today. Flowers have always been used for nourishment, an invaluable part of the life cycle for various animals. They have been prized for their beauty, their ability to bring nature inside, their aesthetic appeal, and countless other qualities. They are common and yet rare, groomed indoors and yet often found growing in the wild. On May 13th, we give them to our mothers because of their many virtues, not least of which is that flowers can articulate how we feel where language falls short.

Earth Day motivates us to sit back and appreciate the natural beauty found all around us. Since 1970, the holiday has reminded us each year to stop for a moment to care about the environment. The earth provides us with an incredibly complex and balanced ecosystem that forms our home. A great way to reflect on this holiday is to bring a lovely plant into your home. The talented florists at Griffin’s Floral Design have created some magnificent masterpieces that work perfectly with this holiday.
