Labor Day Weekend Arrives September 1-4th!

Labor Day has many meanings. The original intent was to celebrate the hard work and dedication of the American worker. The reward was to issue a national holiday that would mean many people get to enjoy a three-day weekend. For others, Labor Day signals the official end of summer (although fall doesn't start until mid-September). For school-age children and their parents, this three-day weekend means that school is just around the corner -- often, the day after this holiday weekend. Many people enjoy this weekend with block parties, barbecues, and pool time. All of these can be enhanced by adding some special flowers to the decor. Adding centerpieces and other flower arrangements around the home can bring warmth and make the most of the last of the summer flowers. This is also a great gift idea if you are invited to someone's Labor Day event. As the seasons change, here are some great flower arrangements to enjoy during this transitional time: FLORAL EMBRACE This garden arrangement includes sunflowers, stock, garden roses, and lilies arranged in a glass vase. PARISIAN One of our most popular flower arrangements, this beauty features garden hydrangea, lilies, roses, lisianthus, and seasonal accents in a willow [...]
