Wedding Fever

With its ideal weather and lush, natural floral landscapes, it’s no wonder that June weddings seem to be so popular. Have you ever wondered why a June wedding never goes out of style? Where did this tradition come from? Just like the saying “all roads lead to Rome” proclaims, the tradition of a June wedding can also be traced as far back as Ancient Rome. According to Ancient Roman myth, “Juno” was the goddess of weddings, and so, getting married in June was deemed lucky for the bride and groom. A June wedding also meant that if the wife conceived (immediately after the marriage), she would give birth before the next harvest, and thus, be well enough to work the fields come harvest time. With time these reasons, however fabricated they may be, fade into the background and June comes to symbolize romance and new beginnings. There are also an abundance of flowers in season for a June wedding. From alstroemerias to belles of Ireland, calla lilies, daisies, hydrangeas, roses, snapdragons, and sunflowers, you’re sure to find the perfect flowers for your special day. If you’re planning a summer or fall wedding, Carithers Flowers in Atlanta offers more than just [...]

The 411 on Tulips: Fun Facts and Care Information

Tulips are easily one of the most recognized and beloved flowers. Their unique shape and multiple meanings make this cheerful bud an excellent choice when sending flowers. Though there are nearly 110 varieties of tulips, we are accustomed to the colors and shape of the Holland tulip, most often seen during the spring months. They are grown in gardens, used as potted plants, or as fresh-cut flowers. History Tulips grow best in climates with long, cool springs and early summers, but are often grown as spring blooming annual plantings in warmer areas of the world. The tulip is most often associated in origin with the Netherlands, but it actually derived from the Arabic parts of the Mediterranean and North Africa. Meaning Much like the rose, the meaning of a tulip varies depending on the color of the bud. The general tulip is a symbol of love. Red tulips are often seen as a declaration of ones love to the receiver. During the Victorian era, when the language of flowers was at its peak in popularity, one could answer the giver by taking the tulip with his or her right or left hand – the right hand accepted the romantic gesture [...]

Forwarded from a customer thanking us for the reminder call..too funny not to post

A woman writes to the IT Technical Support Guy... Dear Tech Support, Last Year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and I noticed a distinct slowdown in the overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0. In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5 and then installed undesirable programs such as NEWS 5.0, MONEY 3.0, and Football 4.1. c Conversion 8.0 no longer runs and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system..Please note that I have tried running Nagging5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail. Whatcan I do? TECH SUPPORT REPLY: Dear Madam: First, keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is and Entertainment package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system. Please enter command: ithoughtyoulovedme.html and try to download Tears6.2 and do not to forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update.  If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should automatically run the applications Flowers 3.5 and jewelry 2.0.  However, remember overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Silence 2.5 or Beer 6.1.  Please note that Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download [...]
