Styled Shoot: Lake Hodges Mountaintop Elopement

We don’t always get to do styled shoots, but when we do, we would prefer our florals to have a mountaintop backdrop! This view was seriously unbeatable and the amazing fact that this location is right in our backyard had us smiling from ear to ear after seeing the photos!

We love working with local vendors and are happy our florals could dazzle this mountaintop elopment shoot. Thanks to Abby Rez Photography for all of the photos!

5 Ways to Show Kindness

Spend today making friends and family loved! National Kindness Day is the perfect day to spread the love or make someone’s day. Read our blog to get more ideas on what activities to partake in today!

  1. Schedule a day date with a friend, coworker or family member. If there’s someone in your life that you haven’t seen in awhile this is a great opportunity to get together and catch up. Simply reaching out to a friend and let them know you were thinking about them.
  2. Get your family together and take an hour or two to clean up your neighborhood. This act of kindness positively affects your entire community. You can help protect the environment by recycling whatever you can find.
  3. Buy a pack of cards so you can hand write letters to friends and family members. These are perfect right before the holiday season and will completely brighten up someone’s life. Include information like the first time you met each other or their best qualities. This is such a touching activity, it will not go unnoticed!
  4. Spend some quality time in the kitchen if you prefer cooking or baking. Bake cookies that you can share, or plan a fancy dinner that you will enjoy at home with a significant other. Either way, they will enjoy the gesture and feel extra love from you on this day.
  5. Send a custom arrangement to someone you love, near or far. Take an arrangement to a nursing home or your office. We can create breathtaking arrangements that are customized for the recipient. We also offer online ordering that makes the entire process easy.

On this kindness day, we encourage you to feel the love surrounding you and share it outward. At Rosemary Duff, we like to think of everyday as kindness day because flowers are the perfect act of kindness. Contact us today to design your custom arrangement and send it in time for this day.

October Holidays to Buy Flowers For

October is not only a “spooky” month, but it is also FULL of perfect days and opportunities to give some florals. Most of these holidays are just passed by or not even well known enough to actually celebrate, but we are ready to change that! Here are the top five holidays you should be celebrating with florals in October.

On October 3rd, it is National Boyfriends Day. Boyfriends do not usually except flowers since it is the other way around when it comes to gifting florals. We have perfect baskets designed for moments like this that will add a simple, yet elegant look to a man’s home! Maybe attach some football game tickets with it, just a simple tip.

On October 5th, it is World Teachers Day. This is a perfect day to help your kids celebrate their teachers and all that they do for them. Pick up something bright and beautiful to add something fresh into their classroom. Many teachers do not know about this day, so it will be a pleasant surprise.

On October 16th, it is National Bosses Day. This day can be tricky because it is hard to find the most appropriate gift for your boss, depending on the industry you work in. Consider something a little more professional and zen for this day.

On October 27th, it is Make A Difference Day. This is one of our favorite holidays! You can do whatever you want for this day. Surprise a family member or someone working at the coffee shop down the street. Brighten someone’s day with something beautiful and encourage them to do the same

And on October 31st, it is Halloween! One of our favorite holidays. We must do something black, orange, and spooky! Go wild with this one and maybe get an arrangement for yourself as well.

To place an online order, visit us at www.rdflorist.com or call us at the shop at 760-745-1191. Don’t forget that we have same day, local delivery.
