City Line Florist knows that when we send you home with some beautiful flowers---or deliver them to someone else on your behalf---you're faced with a major dilemma . . . Where to put them??
Relax, we got you. It turns out that some flowers truly are better off in certain places over others. Orchids don't mind the subtropical heat of your bathroom, for instance, while a riot of roses do well in a larger space where their fragrance isn't overwhelming. Plants love a sunny spot in the kitchen, while desk gardens are, well, the perfect de-stresser on your desk. Read More about Where To Put Those Fresh New Flowers

Now, we're not suggesting you do anything that would earn you a reputation for polishing that apple a little too enthusiastically; we're simply suggesting that you pick up a vivid array of flowers or a desktop garden as a gift to both the teacher and the whole class. What better way to establish a great relationship with everyone than to offer the whole gang a gift? Read More about Flower Gifts That Pass Every Test
Have flowers, will travel should be your motto for 2018 and 2019. In the sense that if a place has flowers, you will travel to see them.
Let us at City Line Florist explain: Every spring and summer across the country, there are dozens and dozens of floral festivals and other such flower events. These destinations celebrate their most iconic flower when it's in full bloom, creating a festive event around it that typically involves parades, food, music and hundreds (if not thousands) of the bloom at the center of it. We've rounded up four of the top such festivals for your attention---and your calendar. But first, the floral attractions in our own neck of the woods you'll want to visit, including West Hartford's Rose Gardens at Elizabeth Park, Griswold's Buttonwood Farm, Lavender Pond Farm in Killingworth and White Flower Farm in Morris.

One of the most popular things to do in the summertime is to pack up the kids and take off to explore our great country. Whether you're visiting D.C., Philadelphia, New York or the Grand Canyon, these are the vacation trips that won't easily be forgotten, carrying with them the culture and character of each destination, as well as each one's rich history and varied landscape. Here at City Line Florist, we love to point out what flowers can do for the homes they find themselves in and the people who inhabit them. One of those things is that they can evoke the feeling of a place through the use of blooms specific to that region, as well as colors and textures inspired by its landscape.

Who says your 4th of July flowers have to be red, white and blue? Certainly not us here at City Line Florist.
Don't get us wrong, the classic American color scheme expresses pride, a sense of tradition and a whole lot of dignity. It references our flag, of course, and these are the colors we have long identified as reflecting our spunky, independent spirit and our rich history. But with plenty of patriotic decor options out there, we've likely got our national spirit covered. There's room for a floral design that takes a different approach.

A pitcher of sangria or bottles of rose on the buffet, and a luscious dessert waiting in the wings. If you've gone to all the trouble to create a beautiful meal, you'll want to provide the flowers to match. Read More about Entertain Some Sunflowers While You’re At It

“I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren’t trying to teach us. We are formed by the little scraps of wisdom.”
