Gone are the days of ridding ourselves of white as soon as Labor Day arrives. This antiquated rule stems back to a time when fashion rules were very pragmatic- summertime was hot and called for light-weight, light colored clothing and decor inside homes. White was also easier to keep clean, and thus to be avoided once muddy fall and winter set in. Advancements in society have led to cooler homes, cleaner clothes and furnishings, and plenty of options for including white with heavier fall or winter textures. Why not work with white this fall as you decorate your home? Griffin’s Floral Design thinks you just might discover a whole new spin on design that you love.

Creating a bee-friendly environment in your backyard or garden is a simple process that can yield huge benefits. We love bees, not just for the balance they create in the eco-system, but also for the work they do to pollinate flowers, fruits and vegetables. On a large scale, bees contribute to a large portion of the world’s food sources. Keeping them healthy and thriving in our own gardens is a way to fight their declining numbers. Griffin’s Floral Design recommends adding plants and bright blooms with sweet fragrances like roses, lavender, mint, or sage to your outdoor space for maximum benefit to bees.

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. Read More about A Taste of Summer, Via Spring
