So sit back, and enjoy them from comfortable distance and they won't bother you at all. They are actually quite fascinating! Read More about Flower Gardens for Butterflies and Bees
We've been discussing summer gatherings for the last couple of weeks - after all, this time of year we love to be outside enjoying family, friends, and sunshine! There may be no more iconic summertime celebration than the 4th of July party. This year, whether you are hosting the party or heading to meet people at someone else's home - don't forget to call Schaaf Floral! Patriotic flowers are a bright and festive way to add that spirit of the day to your table, and even if you aren't doing the decorating, your hostess will love your thoughtfulness if you bring her one of these arrangements inspired by Independence Day.
Did You Know? The majority of the founding fathers favored choosing July 4th to commemorate our freedom, but how they arrived at that day is a bit unclear. Only two of them actually signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, with the rest adding their signatures on August 2, 1776. John Adams had his own idea, proclaiming that July 2 was the day to be celebrated " from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.” Read More about Patriotic Flowers & Arrangements
