Become Self-Care Aware This September

By Bud Dauphin on September 10, 2018 in Plants. 0 Comments

The month of September is self-care month, and one of the best, but most overlooked, ways to care for yourself is by creating a healthy work environment for yourself and those around you. Make the space where you work warm and inviting by clearing away clutter, arranging furniture in an open format, and decorating with live potted plants or dish gardens. Working in a clean, plant friendly environment has been known to optimize focus, since plants actually filter impurities from the air. Schaaf Floral encourages you to select a few of our many plant designs for your office or workspace. Read More about Become Self-Care Aware This September

The Flowers That Matter More Than Most

By Bud Dauphin on August 31, 2018 in Flowers, Summer. 0 Comments

Whenever we do family flowers for a funeral, we send a small vase of roses along from Marcia Schaaf and the staff here at Schaaf Floral. We have stacks and stacks of thank you's from family members of the deceased. People truly appreciate being remembered at this sad time in their lives, and we really feel good doing it and receiving a special thank you. As we reflect on why, how and when flowers really matter, we can't help but think of the most challenging events of our lives. Flowers are wordless communicators of our sentiments. They can speak when words fail us, reflecting how we feel with quiet grace. Read More about The Flowers That Matter More Than Most

The relationship between grandparents and grandchildren is a unique one to be celebrated throughout a family. That’s why Grandparents Day is observed each September. This day is set aside for children to honor their grandparents while learning about the wisdom and guidance they can offer. It also gives grandparents the chance to show love to their children’s children. Schaaf Floral believes there is no better reason to send flowers than in celebration of such great family connections.

Beautiful Flowers Bees Love

By Bud Dauphin on August 13, 2018 in Flowers, Summer. 0 Comments

There is a growing problem these days where bees are concerned. Their population is dwindling due to habitat loss and climate change. As a result, these valuable pollinators are becoming less able to contribute to major food sources. It’s important to keep bees alive and start to see their numbers grow. Schaaf Floral suggests that by maintaining a healthy garden or yard that attracts bees, we can do our part in re-establishing their homes and numbers. Providing fresh water and a bit of shade, including bee-friendly flowers in your outdoor space, and keeping your yard and garden free of harmful pesticides are all ways we can help bees and fight their declining numbers. Bees are attracted to bright yellows and reds, as well as deep blues and purples, and they love simple, single petal flowers like daisies and sunflowers. Read More about Beautiful Flowers Bees Love

Your dining room or kitchen table is an important area of focus in your home when it comes to decorating. This is a space that’s often used for more than just eating. Long conversations over afternoon coffee, late night board games with the kids, and lingering weekend mornings with the newspaper all can happen around your table. When thinking about decorating this space, it’s important to keep in mind all the activity that occurs here. The floral experts at Schaaf Floral recommend including flowers on your kitchen or dining room table that reflect your style and send an inviting feeling to all those who surround your table.
