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.

If you're planning a sweet summer soiree this June, you've come to the right place. City Line Florist is here to remind you that this is the season in which we see so many flowers hit their peak, making for a bevy of exciting floral options for your table. And while your focus may be on the food, you'll want to give a little thought as to what you'll contribute to the table beyond your feast. Picture it: A heaping salad in a generously-sized wooden bowl. A platter of salmon or an array of Spanish-inspired tapas down the center of the table. 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.”
The wisdom our fathers impart to us throughout our lives becomes a valuable part of who we are. As such, we should celebrate the men in our lives that fill this role. This year, Father’s Day is June 17th and the artistic designers at City Line Florist are ready with a variety of gifts and greenery to celebrate dads. Whether you’re planning to send a traditional arrangement, a fun gift basket full of goodies or a custom design that’s as unique as your dad, we have everything you need and we’re ready to help you choose the perfect way to say “Happy Father’s Day.” Read More about A wise Gift For Dad

How did you get into floral work?
Throughout high school I was in a voag program at Ledyard High School. I took a 3 week course in floral design and fell in love with it. Then I went to Boston to Rittner School of Floral design and took a 6 month course in 1981. The rest is history. Read More about Meet One Of Our Moms
As summer makes its way slowly toward us, it's time to begin thinking about those end of school year celebrations, and specifically graduation. There are so many institutions of higher learning in our community, including University of Bridgeport, Fairfield University, Sacred Heart University and Housatonic Community College. That's a lot of graduates. Our local college seniors deserve our admiration and respect for their achievements, and if we've got a special grad in our life, we will want to properly celebrate them with a special dinner or even a party. City Line Florist loves so many of the spring centerpieces available right now, and luckily they also make the perfect addition to your graduation party decor.
