Getting Ready for New Growth on Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday is March 29th, and this is a special time to stop and reflect on the Easter holiday time and what it means for us. As a religious holiday that arrives exactly one week before Easter, it is a time for new growth and renewal that reflects the spring season. To prepare for this special time, flowers offer a reminder of this time of renewal and rebirth. They are a beautiful way to decorate your home as well as provide a wonderful gift for others. During this spring season and Palm Sunday, you can add special floral touches throughout your home as well as provide flowers for your local church to mark the occasion. Our Atlanta flower shops are brimming over with special spring flowers, including tulips, lilies, orchids and roses that make a wonderful way to celebrate Palm Sunday and Easter. Of course, there is also the lily plant, which is known as the Easter plant, offering the elegance and purity of white. Another way to celebrate this time of renewal is to share a special gift basket with loved ones that represents this renewal, such as a fresh fruit basket that reminds us to renew our minds [...]

Give the Gift of Tulips on Plant a Flower Day

While we love all special days of the year, our favorites are the ones that involve nature because we are in the business of flowers. At the core of what we do is a philosophy of giving back to nature what we take, which means operating a florist business that is focused on sustainable strategies to ensure that flowers and plants are here for future generations to enjoy. Sustaining Mother Nature To help that sustainable goal become a reality, we work with premier flower farmers who share our philosophy. They continually replenish nature by planting and utilizing green growing and harvesting practices to maintain a balanced ecosystem. One special day that arrives this week lets you do your part too in remembering to take care of Mother Nature. Thursday, March 12th is Plant a Flower Day. This is a great time to work in the garden and plant flowers or join in your neighborhood or city’s community garden. Send Tulips on Plant a Flower Day It’s also a great time to send flowers to someone else and remind them of just how special flowers are in providing beauty to our lives. Of course, here at Carithers Flowers we have all [...]
