January Holidays to Celebrate with Flowers

2019 is finally here! We’re so excited to start a new year, and we’re especially excited to get started on all of our resolutions. If your resolution includes spreading the love, or showing more kindness in your day to day life, we’re here to help! Start this month by sending flowers to loved ones near and far, for one of the many national holidays happening this month.

Hugging Day – January 21st

Hugging day is best celebrated in person, but that’s not always the case. For friends and family far away, send a warm, inviting arrangement to their home or office. We suggest something overflowing, like our best selling Blush Life. Whether you want to send a flower hug just for fun, or to someone who needs a little extra love, let Rosemary Duff do the talking.

Compliment Day – January 24th
Is there anything better than an unexpected compliment? At the grocery store or in the office, a small token of appreciation goes a long way. While you don’t need to wait for National Compliment Day to say something kind, let this day serve as a reason to go above and beyond what you normally do. Giving a coworker or neighbor a custom arrangement can go a long way! We love our small, but stunning Fireworks arrangement for Compliment Day.  

Spouses Day – January 26th
A special day to celebrate your soulmate, National Spouses Day is the perfect time to say thank you for all that your partner does for you. Say I love you with a custom arrangement or bouquet designed and delivered by our talented florists. You can’t go wrong with a traditional rose bouquet, or try something unique like our extravagant arrangement, appropriately titled, Hopelessly Devoted to You. Let your favorite person know just how special they are on the 26th!

All of these fun holidays are right around the corner, and they’re super easy to celebrate with our help. Simply customize your arrangement and order it online. We’ll take care of the rest. If you have any questions for our team, feel free to reach out at 760-745-1191.

Decorate Your Home with Flowers for New Years

If you’re hosting a New Year’s party, you’ll want to prepare your house for the crowd and the festivities. Decorating your home to perfection is easier than ever when you stop by Rosemary Duff. We have plenty of holiday decoration options to choose from, including a wide assortment of live florals that will impress all your guests.

Garland
There is nothing prettier and more stunning than draping flowers all over. One of the easiest ways to do that is with garland. Whether wrapped around the staircase, draped over the counter tops in the kitchen or the seating area at the party. This is a great way to get the most florals in your space that can fit anywhere you need them.

Centerpieces
One of the most popular ways to bring live flowers into your home over the holidays is a classic centerpiece. These elaborate arrangements come in all shapes, sizes and colors to accommodate your space and style. We can create custom orders, and you can also choose from our signature New Year’s arrangements.

Add one of our centerpieces to the following areas in your home:
– Dessert or appetizer table
– Entry way
– Entertainment center

Flower Petal Drop
One of the most creative ways to use flowers is by making your own ball drop. We love the idea of celebrating the stroke of midnight with a ball drop of flowers and flower petals. You can combine with balloons or confetti to make a lasting impact. Can you say “wow factor”!

Before the ball drops, make sure you come in to see us at Rosemary Duff for all of your decorating needs. 2019 has never looked better. Contact us today to order your custom arrangements.

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.
