How We Use the 2020 Pantone Color of the Year

Pantone recently announced their 2020 Color of the Year – Classic Blue! They said this about their color choice, “Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era. As technology continues to race ahead of the human ability to process it all, it is easy to understand why we gravitate to colors that are honest and offer the promise of protection. Non-aggressive and easily relatable, the trusted Classic Blue lends itself to relaxed interaction. Associated with the return of another day, this universal favorite is comfortably embraced.”

5 Reasons to Shop Local for Flowers

With Small Business Saturday on November 30, we wanted to remind you the importance of shopping local, especially when it comes to custom flower arrangements. When you shop from a small business, an actual person does  a happy dance. And those actual people are me and my sisters who have been running this business in Escondido for over 35 years.

You’ll Support the Local Economy
The production and sale of locally-grown cut flowers contribute to a community’s economy, and provide employment and valuable agriculture experience to many.

The Flowers Will Be Seasonal
Some local florists are also Greenhouses, which means they can they grow some of their products. For that reason, the flowers you buy from local florists will, more often than not, be those that can be grown in your climate zone during the season you’re purchasing them. Of course, every florist will have some always-popular florals, like roses and carnations, no matter what the season.

The Flowers Will Likely Look and Smell Better
Because the bouquets and arrangements you purchase locally are full of in-season blooms, they’ll likely look and smell much fresher than ones you could order online or pick up in

The Florist Can Make Recommendations
Not sure what flowers you want to buy? Speaking to a florist one on one is the perfect way to get great recommendations, depending on the style and budget you’re working with. Florists are a great resource for any floral-related questions.

You Can Trust Your Local Florist
That’s not the only benefit of a one-on-one connection with your local florist, either. When you buy flowers in person, it’s a lot easier to trust that he or she will take care of you from the beginning of the transaction to the end.
