Even though Valentine’s Day is often associated with love and romance, it’s also a wonderful time to let other special individuals in your life know how much they mean to you. For example, your team at work or your special coworkers that just brighten every single workday deserve to know that you appreciate them in your life. Likewise special family members like your mom or sister are wonderful people to bless with a gorgeous Valentine’s Day gift this year. Let these awesome individuals know how much you value them in your life by sending a beautiful floral arrangement or gift basket for everyone to enjoy. The gift designers at Kittleberger Florist are designing amazing Valentine’s Day floral arrangements and gift baskets for you to send to everyone you know at Valentine’s Day this year.
Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and that means we are starting to think about all things romance and love related. This year, think about the flowers that you’re going to send to your loved ones and sweetheart. Different flowers and their colors often convey different meanings, such as love, faithfulness, desire, enthusiasm and friendship. The best flowers you can send her are those with meaning that is straight from your heart. The floral artisans at Kittelberger Florist & Gifts have created some fabulous designs that will convey the meaning you want to say.
The newest, hottest shade of 2019 has been announced and its name is Living Coral. The new Color of the Year is an animated and life-affirming coral hue with golden undertones that enlivens and invigorates with a softer edge. We will be seeing this color all year everywhere we go, from the red carpet to weddings, from home decor to sporting events. Be ready to see Living Coral in your home, office and closet! The floral experts at Kittelberger Florist & Gifts believe the best and easiest way to incorporate Living Coral in your daily life is through a beautiful bouquet of flowers in this shade.
The New Year is an excellent time to think about small changes we can make to improve our health, sharpen our minds and strengthen relationships. The floral experts at Kittelberger Florist believe all of these things can be accomplished with flowers. Here’s why:
- Flowers help you breathe easier. Plants and flowers naturally purify the air around them, absorbing harmful toxins and impurities while emitting life-giving oxygen. Place a few near you to reduce headaches, congestion and other cold symptoms.
- Flowers boost creativity. Surrounding yourself with color has been proven to expand creative thought. Place your favorite flowers in your favorite hues near you as you work to improve creative energy.
- Caring for flowers makes you more compassionate. Taking care of plants and flowers is a sure way to strengthen your caring, compassionate side. This will, in turn, strengthen your bond with people in your life, as well.
On December 15, Wreaths Across America will hold its annual wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery in honor of those vets who lost their lives in service to country. This program counts many other locations within its fold, all of them participating in a mass ritual of remembering their loved ones at the holidays. Here at Kittelberger Florist & Gifts, we encourage you to pay similar tribute to your loved one, crafting your own meaningful ritual to do just that.
The holidays are an inherently creative time. We’re in the kitchen making all manner of goodies, whipping up everything from major meals to Chex mix to fudge. We’re dressing our tables, mantels and living spaces in garlands, wreaths and other holiday decor, hanging mistletoe and setting up the Christmas village in its usual spot. This season is a mix of our favorite customs and rituals as well as what we create anew each time. As creative types ourselves, Kittelberger Florist & Gifts loves the idea of families gathering together to home-make their holidays.
There are so many floral items to bring into your home during the holidays, we can hardly keep track (and yet, somehow we do). From wreaths to garlands to centerpiece flowers to poinsettias, Kittelberger Florist & Gifts has got them all. Along with the dreamy seasonal pieces you introduce into your own space, there are the flowers you introduce into someone else’s, whether as a hostess gift, a holiday treat or a Christmas gift in their own right. We’ve got that scenario covered, too.
Kittelberger Florist & Gifts is poised to welcome the holiday season. Like everyone else, we’re looking ahead to a busy time, full of family, friends, feasting and gifts. We join you in transforming our homes and work spaces with seasonal decor that captures this magical time of year. If you’re looking for a good place to start, we have a suggestion: with a wreath.
In honor of Thanksgiving, Kittelberger Florist & Gifts is doing some of our own. Today we’re taking a moment to honor our very own Michael Miller, a very special part of the Kittelberger team. Those of us who work with flowers and plants have a bit of a special touch when it comes to taking care of things, and Michael’s no exception.
