A Rainbow Bouquet For Your Bestie

By Bud Dauphin on January 15, 2018 in Flower Gifts, Flowers, Valentine's Day. 0 Comments

One of the best opportunities to show your appreciation for the women in your life is coming up in February, and no, we're not talking about Valentine's Day. Instead, we mean the day before, Galentine's Day, a newish holiday devoted to celebrating the love women have for each other. This concept was first proposed in a 2010 episode of Parks and Recreation, when main character Leslie Knope took all her ladies out to lunch, gave them gifts and officially declared February 13th "Galentine's Day . . . only the best day of the year." We here at Schaff Floral are happy to participate in any occasion that gives us reason to focus on love. Read More about A Rainbow Bouquet For Your Bestie

Brightest Blooms For Get Well Gifts

By Bud Dauphin on December 27, 2017 in Flowers, Get Well Gifts. 0 Comments

When it comes to offering a get well bouquet, nothing but the brightest blooms in the bunch will do. We here at Schaff Floral are talking red, orange, yellow . . . the colors that telegraph the most optimism and vibrancy. Flowers have the ability to lift our spirits and literally breathe life into a room, both oxygenating the air and introducing some nature. At a time when your recipient may be home or hospital bound, a dash of cheerful flowers is just the thing to perk them up. Read More about Brightest Blooms For Get Well Gifts

Winter’s Best White Flowers

By Bud Dauphin on December 22, 2017 in Flowers, Holidays. 0 Comments

At Schaff Floral, we'd be hard pressed to pick our favorite season for flowers, but winter, with its glorious palette of whites, is definitely at the top of the list. We love an arrangement that mimics the snowy scene outside and yet makes us feel all of the warmth of the season inside. White arrangements, far from being austere, are comforting and elegant. We like to see them paired up with some of the more traditional designs we see for the holidays, with their rich reds and greens. Read More about Winter’s Best White Flowers

Stunning Secret Santa Gifts

By Bud Dauphin on December 1, 2017 in Christmas, Corporate Gifts. 0 Comments

The custom of Secret Santa has been around for a long time, and started, of course, with the big man himself. Whether you call him St. Nicholas, Kris Kringle or Santa Claus, this iconic holiday gift-giver set the stage for all kinds of future anonymous giving on the part of merry people inspired by his example. At Schaaf Floral, we're invested in the idea of giving and giving well. Secret Santa, a group gift swap most often played at work or with groups of friends, is no exception. While it can be a challenge to know what exactly to get your randomly-assigned recipient, we've got some fresh ideas. Read More about Stunning Secret Santa Gifts
