Hispanic Heritage Through Flowers

September 15 to October 15 is officially designated as National Hispanic Heritage Month here in the U.S., a time reserved to celebrate the contributions of the Latin American world. We honor Hispanic Americans, their families and their cultures by enjoying and rediscovering the gifts that Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and the Americas have brought us. From art to food to literature to ideas, the U.S. is enriched and enlivened by the contributions Hispanic Americans have made. City Line Florist celebrates this month by highlighting one contribution in particular, the dahlia.

Dress Up Your Space With Jewel-Toned Florals

As fall approaches, we can finally inject a little drama into our decor. One of the best ways to do that is to turn to the jewel-tone palette, a seasonal favorite. We here at City Line Florist love the dimension, depth and mystery of gemstone colors, whether it's ruby red, crimson, violet, blue or emerald green. Luckily, a whole range of flowers is available in these hues, which will not only enliven your space but give it a sense of gravitas, too. If you aren't ready to invest in full-on fabric and linen decor in these colors, flowers can be a great way to get the same effect without breaking the bank.

Beautiful, Bee-Friendly Flowers

When it comes to bees, City Line Florist is a fan. A major one, in fact. How could we not be? Bees are responsible for pollinating 80% of all flowering plants. That includes the vast majority of our major food crops, the ones we consume on a daily basis. Scientists estimate that one in three bites we eat comes from plants pollinated by bees. Yes, this humble insect is one of the most important creatures on the planet. Read More about Beautiful, Bee-Friendly Flowers »

Where To Put Those Fresh New Flowers

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 »
