When you think of traditional Autumn florals, a few names probably come to mind. Sunflowers, check. Mums, got em in spades. Rich red roses, yup. Arrangements are filled with these lovely standbys and accented by curly willow, wheat stalks and cattails. But there's another flower we at City Line Florist would like to humbly submit to the list: the dahlia.
Dahlias are statement flowers, to be sure, but they also bring an intricate beauty to any design. They keep you looking at the piece, and given that they come in an incredible range of nuanced colors, they can also complement all of the usual suspects above. Why not decorate with some divine dahlias for Fall? Read More about Divine Dahlias for Fall

A workplace is made significantly more enjoyable when there is a great boss at the helm. From the employer who provides extensive benefits, to the supervisor who encourages people to excel in their job, to the department leader who has assembled a winning team - a good boss is one who creates a dynamic, positive and fun environment. Since adults spend nearly one-third of their waking hours at work, we truly appreciate someone like this in the workplace.

Housewarming parties traditionally are held when someone moves into a new home. Gifts which may be useful or decorative are given to help them to fill their home with items they need. This tradition was born from an old custom which evolved in medieval times, when new homeowners were given the gift of firewood to literally keep their house warm over the winter.
Today, housewarming parties are less common, but housewarming gifts are still popular. Flowers and plants are perfect for this occasion, as they add beauty and warmth to someone's new home. For those moving into the Trumbull area, City Line Florist is the place to visit for all things floral for the home. Read More about Floral Gifts for Housewarming Parties

"Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children." - Alex Haley
Anyone who grew up with a loving grandparent knows just what a gift that is. Even into adulthood, our grandparents remain in our hearts in a way no other person can. It was this special relationship that Marian McQuade sought to memorialize when she campaigned to establish National Grandparents Day in the 1970's. She was successful in 1978, when Congress declared it a national day of observance. Read More about Choosing Beautiful Grandparents Day Flowers
