Everyone Needs a Little Flower Therapy

c1c2We have all had those days where it didn’t go as planned, we feel discouraged, or maybe we are physically under the weather.

We also know others that have experienced the same thing.

That’s when it’s nice to take the time and treat others we care about and maybe even ourselves to a little flower therapy.

Scientific evidence has shown that flowers do improve one’s mental and even physical state, offering that kind of pick me up we all could use.c3

At Carithers Flowers, we are so happy that our flowers can have that kind of effect on others. It makes us feel as though we are really helping others.

To give you some ideas of the type of get well flowers, plants, and gifts we offer, we thought we would share a few prescriptions here with you:c4

  • Wishes and Blessings Bouquet is full of yellow and white flowers, including garden roses and hydrangea, in a European glass vase.
  • The Get Well Soon Bouquet comes with a “Get Well Soon” Mylar balloon. The flower arrangement consists of yellow lilies, roses, and alstromeria in a glass vase.c5
  • Thinking of You is a bouquet of daisies and lilies that also comes with a “Get Well Soon” Mylar balloon.

Along with flowers, we have some pretty great get well gifts that are still from Nature’s best selection:

  • The Living Plant Garden comes with a Mylar balloon and consists of many types of green and blooming plants.

  • Be sure to crack some jokes to not only make them crack a smile but also enjoy a good laugh.
  • Take the time to get together and do something fun. Quality time with loved ones always brings the smiles.

Start the School Year Off Right with Flowers & Gifts for the Teacher

a1Each school year brings a new teacher for your kids so it’s the perfect time to start off on the right foot with the teacher by welcoming them with a special gift of flowers or gift basket.a2

While you may not yet know what your child’s teacher likes in terms of flowers or colors, you can go with a flower arrangement or gift item that is from our most popular selections like these:

  • Epic Garden Joy is a stunning garden-style flower arrangement of sunflowers, lilies, and roses in a glass vase. It’s like bringing the summer indoors where a teacher can smile every time they see it perched on the end of their desk.
  • The Fanciful Garden Cube may be compact but it is overflowing with color, including pink and fuchsia gerbera daisies and garden roses.
  • Pastel Palette offers a delicate and soft display of garden hydrangea and roses in a bubble bowl. It’s another stunning flower arrangement sure to please any teacher.c5
  • The Colorburst Bouquet has Asiatic lilies, tulips, garden roses and southern hydrangea in a glass vase.
  • The Wishes and Blessings Bouquet is another compact arrangement that is bursting with color, including yellow garden roses, along with sophisticated white florals in the form of hydrangea.c6

  • While we offer many types of gift baskets, including those with gourmet goodies and fruit, it’s hard to imagine there would be any teacher who wouldn’t love coffee. The Starbucks Sampler has its Breakfast Blend, House Blend, Caffe Verona or Sumatra and biscotti in a basket.

Even better is the fact that many of these choices are now on sale while supplies last.c7

You can swing by any of our Atlanta flower shops and pick them up or you can have them delivered to the local Atlanta area school for added convenience.

We can also put together a custom flower arrangement or you can shop our plants and other special gifts at any of our Atlanta flower shops.
