As the weather warms, many of our activities move outdoors this season, and formal dining affairs are no exception. This is the perfect time for brunches and afternoon teas on the patio or in the garden. For beautiful occasions such as these, you’ll want your floral decor to match the delicate treats and tasty drinks you’ll be serving. The floral designers at Schaaf Floral have some wonderful arrangements prepared for pairing with delightful treats at brunch or tea.
“I choose you. And I’ll choose you over and over and over. Without pause, without a doubt, in a heartbeat. I’ll keep choosing you.”
Here in the month of June we see more weddings and anniversaries occur than any other time of year. Anniversaries are such a great time to remind your spouse that you’d marry them all over again. After everything you’ve been through, all the ups and downs that make a marriage and a life, if you had to start over, you’d choose to go through all of it with them again and again. At Schaaf Floral, we want to help you say it best- with flowers!
“The older I get, the smarter my father seems to get.”
Maybe it’s our changing perspective as we grow up, or maybe our fathers really do gain more and more wisdom as they live through the experience of raising children. Either way, it’s a wonderful thing to honor a man who taught you so many life lessons and had some fun doing it along the way. For Father’s Day, on June 17th this year, let your dad know how cool you think he is with a customized gift just for him. The floral designers at Schaaf Floral have been creating some awesome pieces specifically with dads in mind.
They say, “Good friends are like stars. You don’t always see them, but you know they’re always there.” To have a few good friends is enriching to anyone, but to have a best friend is truly a treasure. On June 8th, you have the opportunity to celebrate these special people in your life on Best Friend’s Day. Tell your best friend how important she is in your life, how thankful you are for her support, or just that you’re glad to know her. The floral experts at Schaaf Floral know how lucky you feel to have your best friend by your side and we’re ready to help you shower her with loads of flowers.
Summertime can often be full of celebrations. We honor moms and dads, grads and soldiers, and often even celebrate anniversaries or birthdays during the summer months. No matter what type of occasion you’re attending, don’t forget to bring flowers to the guest of honor! The incredible artists at Schaaf Floral are excited to bring you a new summer line of gorgeous bouquets, perfect for any special occasion or party this season. Of course, if attending an event isn’t possible, remember we have excellent delivery service that’s always friendly and professional.
Memorial Day falls on May 28th of this year. It began in the years following the Civil War as an event that was called Decoration Day. It was supposed to be a day of remembrance, and one that encouraged people to scatter flowers and decorate the graves of soldiers who died in combat during the bloodiest war in U.S. history. Today, people celebrate it as the unofficial start of summer. Festivities often include backyard barbecues and trips to a lake for camping or picnics. The Schaaf Floral team encourages you to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your table or picnic blanket setting with fresh flowers.
We celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 13th. Thankfully, we’re finally enjoying the warmer weather. Mother’s Day isn’t just a celebration to honor our mothers; it’s also a celebration of spring because it’s finally here. One of the time-honored traditions we associate with Mother’s Day is gift giving. And flowers top the list of gifts that people give their mothers. The talented team of floral designers here at Schaaf Floral are working hard to ensure that our Minneapolis-area customer base has plenty of gorgeous flower arrangements from which to choose for their mothers.
The end of the school year is fast approaching, and with it comes the opportunity to celebrate those who made the year so successful. Whether you’re looking to honor a teacher for all of his or her hard work or want to shower a graduate with rewards for their efforts, flowers are a great end-of-the-year gift option. Schaaf Floral makes it easy to choose the perfect floral arrangement for grads and teachers.
The first week of May is a big one in the gift giving and unofficial observance and celebration world. National Nurses’ Week starts on Sunday, May 6 and ends on Saturday, May 12. National Nurses’ Day is observed on May 12 because that date marks the birth of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing as a profession. Although there may be no intended coincidence in the fact that National Teacher Appreciation Week takes place between May 7 and May 11, or the fact that National Teacher Day occurs on May 8, it’s convenient that these two week-long events that pay homage to professionals who don’t get the recognition that they deserve. The Schaaf Floral team is ready to be of service to anyone who wants to express their appreciation towards teachers and nurses with the gift of flowers.
On April 22, the nation observes an annual Earth Day celebration. Earth Day came into being in 1970. Since then, the observance has always revolved around helping people learn that we’re supposed to be the stewards that take care of an protect our precious planet. And the Schaaf Floral team believes that one way to observe, celebrate, and honor this non-official national observance is through flowers and green or blooming plants.
