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. Read More about Start Fresh! »

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. Read More about Craft The Perfect Holiday »

What does the modern Thanksgiving table look like? On this holiday above all others, we embrace tradition. We set a timeless scene with heirloom linens and heritage china. On the other hand, Thanksgiving has been getting a bit of a reboot in the last few years, with holiday hosts mixing in some modern touches. Many people celebrate Friendsgiving, for instance, or have a more casual potluck. Still others are rethinking classic dishes, or having everyone bring a meal item that reflects the traditions of their cultural or ethnic background. What stays the same? The fact that friends and family gather around the table in gratitude, and the flowers at its center. Read More about A Festive Centerpiece For Your Thanksgiving Table »
