Pretty Plants For Self Care Awareness Month

That's right, self care has an entire month devoted to it, and that month is September. How fortunate that we find ourselves here, poised on the edge of fall, at a time when the powers-that-be have decided we should all just take a moment to attend to ourselves. Here at Kittelberger Florist & Gifts, we can think of no better way to prep for fall's dazzling entrance at the end of the month, with the holidays just behind, than to give ourselves a little attention. Yes to self care! Read More about Pretty Plants For Self Care Awareness Month »

Random Acts Of Flowers

Kittelberger Florist & Gifts is always looking for ways to get flowers into the hands of as many people as possible, that's why we do what we do. And usually, that's enough to satisfy our desire to see people exchanging bouquets of roses or gifting their loved ones, co-workers, friends and themselves with that gorgeous orchid or a fresh bunch of tulips. Other times, however, we just want to get out and do something about it. And last November, we did. Read More about Random Acts Of Flowers »

How Flowers Become Traditions

As a family-run business now in its third and fourth generations, Kittelberger Florist has a strong appreciation for tradition. September 9 is Grandparents Day, and one of the best ways to honor our cherished elders is to maintain the customs and rituals they passed down to us. Flower work is filled with gift exchange traditions, and flowers are great way to connect our youngest generations with our oldest ones. Read More about How Flowers Become Traditions »

Freshen Up End Of Summer With This White Bouquet

One of the best ways to celebrate Labor Day is the way in which it was intended---as a day of rest. In the late 19th century, it became clear that the American worker's efforts deserved some recognition, and ultimately, the first Monday in September was adopted nationally as the time to give it. It has since evolved into the long weekend that, along with Memorial Day, bookends the summer. As such, it's been used as an opportunity to dictate fashion choices (that "no white after Labor Day" rule is the brainchild of wealthy New York socialites), as well as an opportunity to gather with friends and family for pool parties and barbecues. It's our opinion here at Kittelberger Florist that no matter how you spend September 3, that you maintain a sense of tradition and let this be a day of rest and relaxation.

Fresh From The Field Flowers

Kittelberger Florist & Gifts can't say enough about bees. They are, in fact, the bees knees, these industrious little workers. Responsible for pollinating 1/3 of the food we eat (scientists estimate that one in every three bites comes from a bee-pollinated plant), bees are maybe the most essential creature on the planet. Without them, we wouldn't have apples and avocados, cherries and coffee, oranges, pumpkins, flax . . . the list goes on. And of course, we wouldn't have flowers.

The Right Room For Those Blooms

Kittelberger Florist & Gifts spends a lot of time thinking about flowers, naturally, and we're here to tell you, they can do a lot more for a room than just make it look good. The trick is matching a floral design to the room it's best suited for. To do that, take a step back from marveling at your gorgeous new blooms and ask some serious questions about where they should live. Such as? Well, begin by assessing the scale of the design. Tall flowers like gladiolus provide a lot of drama and color given their stack-upon- stack of blooms. Place them in a tall foyer or on an accent table in a living room. Been graced with an orchid? Let it live next to the tub in the bathroom (and near a window) where it will love the occasional subtropical temps. Read More about The Right Room For Those Blooms »

Treat Yourself To A Mini Vacay With Flowers

Going somewhere this summer? Kittelberger Florist sure hopes so. There's nothing like a fun trek across the country or a tour of our nation's most stunning natural landscapes. Maybe you're having a major adventure abroad or planning a relaxing vacay in the tropics, where the nights are balmy and the air is full of mystery. There's nothing quite like the travel bug we catch every summer, which inspires us to experience new and varied destinations and cultures. But even if you aren't going anywhere this season, you can evoke a worldly, even exotic feeling in your own home through the right flowers.

Independence Day’s Awesome Flower Show

There are few things more American than the Fourth of July, and if they are more American, we probably include them in our Independence Day celebrations. It's a day devoted to classic American pastimes like grilling out on the lake or tossing the football around in the backyard. Even our fare is deeply traditional, the menu sure to include such delights as hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad, cole slaw and cherry pie. We're with friends and family, feeling the relaxed vibes of summer, anticipating the fireworks display that will cap off the long, easy afternoon. Kittelberger Florist loves all of the tradition---and the majesty---of Independence Day. But we also think the flowers we use to decorate our homes (or to give to our hostess) can be a little more independent themselves. Read More about Independence Day’s Awesome Flower Show »
