It’s that time of year again, Fall is upon us! There are so many fun ways to incorporate Fall into your flower arrangements this time of year and we would love to help you do so.
With Fall comes deeper colors for flowers and we love the selection this time of year. Orange, red, purple and maroon are just some of the rich colors we have to choose from when making your arrangements. Another great part about this time of year is the variety of flowers that begin to bloom. See our blog on this month’s flower, the Marigold, but also look out for flowers like carnations, gladiolus, iris, lavender, orchids and poppies. These are all great options to consider, whether you just want a pretty bouquet for a special someone, or are planning a big event like a dinner or wedding.
Speaking of big events, there are a lot of them during this time of year. From Halloween to Thanksgiving there are many times when a good flower arrangement is needed. Here at the shop we LOVE halloween and think it is a great way to incorporate flowers in a unique and spooky way.
Pumpkins are obviously a big part of the Halloween/Fall season and we love to incorporate them in anyway we can! From center pieces on a table, to entryway accessories the possibilities are endless. We’ve even done a few weddings with pumpkins because you truly can’t go wrong with the staple of Fall decorations.
The options are endless when it comes to decorating for Fall. Over the top or subtle, we love incorporating flowers in anyway we can and with so many options and colors to choose from this season, our jobs are easy!

It’s another month, and another flower to go with it. Marigold’s are the flower of the month for October, and after one look you’ll understand why. The marigold’s signature color is a deep orange and yellow, which makes it perfect for autumn and October birthdays. It’s believed that marigolds were used to treat minor abrasions and even chapped lips. They are known to be easy to grow, making them a popular choice for first time gardeners. Experienced gardeners love them, too, as their scent keeps pests away from vegetable gardens.
In the past, Marigolds were popular because they were used for just about anything. They were used for dying fabric, and treating different health ailments, and sometimes even seasoning food. They are also referred to as one of the hardiest fall flowers. As well as being the birthday flower for October, Marigolds are used during the Dia De Los Muertos celebration in Mexico. They’re strung into colorful garland and placed on the graves of loved ones. The smell is thought to guide the spirits to heaven, and the bright orange and yellow symbolizes the sun and light.
Start fall off right and celebrate with a custom arrangement of orange and yellow marigolds. Visit our website to order yours today!
This Valley center wedding was for the son of my friend from high school. A casual outdoor wedding at my friend’s home that is designed with a natural rustic feel.
The father of the groom built the home and landscape. On our initial walk thru, the bride wanted to use the reception area as the ceremony area but after seeing the majestic view from the pool, we suggested to have the ceremony on the rocks below the pool. So, the father of groom built the platform, that will last a lifetime, for the ceremony.
The mother of the groom works for a tree cutting company and one of the arborists custom built the benches used at the ceremony.
They had 185 guests and not one person left until the music stopped at midnight. They had a Mexican style buffet with custom tacos, quesadillas, and salsa bar. The dessert bar with a candy hutch, next to the cake/cupcake table was a hit with all the guests. A beautiful lounge area was set up to watch the dancing under the palapa.
We were hired in the full event capacity for this wedding and brought in the staff, bartenders, games, photo booth, candy bar, and helped with negotiations of the dinner. Don’t forget that we don’t just do flowers.

Everyday should be Wife Appreciation Day, but lucky for all those married women out there, there is a specific day dedicated to wives! On September 18th, it is your job, as a husband, to shower your wife with love, affection, gifts and of course FLOWERS!
Although the original origin and founder of this day is unknown, it is believed that this day was dedicated to wives that did not yet have children, because Mother’s Day is for wives with children. Today, it is encouraged that all wives are appreciated and we think that there can never be too many days dedicated to the person you love so much.
The traditional flower for this day is the rose (red meaning love and romance), but obviously whichever flower your wife likes is perfect! Here are some flower meanings if you are trying to portray a certain message.
- Pink Carnation- gratitude
- Daffodil- chivalry
- Holly- domestic happiness
- Ivy- fidelity
- Jasmine- grace and elegance
- Lilac- first love
- Pansy- loving thoughts
- Pink Rose- admiration/appreciation
- Sunflower- adoration
- Red Tulip- declaration of love
- Yellow Tulip- hopelessly in love
Head on over to our website or call us directly at (760) 745-1191 to make sure you have flowers to give your wife on Sunday, September 18! Show her how much she means to you today and everyday.
Another month and another opportunity to learn about the beautiful world around you! This month’s flower is the Aster. The small daisy-like flower gets its name from the greek work astéri, meaning star because of its star shape.
In the wild, Asters are mostly shades of purple and blue, but when cultivated they can be pink lavender and white as well. While some flowers and their colors have specific meanings, this is not so with the aster. No matter what color you choose, they will always symbolize patience and elegance.
In the US, they are the birth flower for people born in September and also symbolize the 20 year wedding anniversary. In ancient times and even today, the Aster has been thought to be a magical power that ward off evil spirits and can also signify wishing a situation had turned out differently. These flowers have also been used in some cultures for medical remedies and treatments.
Asters are a great flower for arrangements or outside gardens. They are easy to plant at any time of the year but do best in the Fall months which is why they are a perfect flower for September. (Fall begins Sept. 22nd!) Asters can also keep in a vase for up to two weeks, which make them the ideal flower for arrangements.
