Each fall, a new crop of parents is coping with the reality of sending their young adult off to college for the first time. This is both an exciting and an anxious time for everyone involved, as parents let go and students look back. Bringing the perfect college dorm room decor is one way to ease the transition, setting up a place where the student feels comfortable and has a few touches from home. Whether it be their favorite pillow or a framed photo of the siblings, little things really do make a big difference. This fall, City Line Florist has a few ideas that parents can adopt that will remind students every day that although they have left your home, they haven’t left your heart.
Green plants make excellent college gift room decor for a new student, as they help to clean the air and to increase a sense of well-being and peace. You can make this appropriate gift even more amazing by choosing fun or whimsical containers. We absolutely love this ceramic elephant, sure to become your child’s dorm room mascot. The elephant is considered a symbol of good luck and good fortune.
Succulents, as displayed above, are also a great choice – they offer an interesting and unique aesthetic, while being very low maintenance. Let’s face it, your college student will have enough to worry about without trying to keep a finicky plant alive. These hardy plants should easily survive a little forgetfulness!

College dorm room decor isn’t the only concern – once your student has settled in, care packages go a long way to letting them know that they are absolutely on your mind. With plenty of delicious snacks to share with friends or get them through all-night study sessions, we know they will love you for it. Don’t Forget! Schedule a delivery of flowers or a gourmet treat to celebrate their birthday across the miles.

Please note, some gifts and items may only be available locally here in Trumbull. But whether your student has stayed in the area, or traveled out of state, City Line Florist can easily help make this transition go beautifully.
