How ready are you for Thanksgiving? If the answer is very, then we suspect you've got your plans in place, and that they might include dining at someone else's home. And you wouldn't be alone; last year, nearly 50 million people traveled 50 miles or more to break bread with their loved ones, meaning that many people didn't actually play host themselves.
So you may be all set, but we here at City Line Florist are here to remind you of one of the most traditional gestures you can make when showing up on your holiday hosts' doorstep, and that is offering them a host or hostess gift. Read More about Perfect Piece for Your Holiday Host »
Every November 11, City Line Florist's Trumbull family, like so many other communities across the country, spends a day honoring those who have served in the U.S. military. We have special dinners, attend parades and participate in observances throughout our area. We may take the time to reach out to a veteran who lives across the country or who we haven't seen in awhile in order to communicate our gratitude. Veterans Day can be celebrated in a variety of ways ranging from poignant ceremonies to lively gatherings with a festive air.
What to do if you're not with your vet this November 11 but still want to do something personally meaningful for him or her? How can you acknowledge their incredible efforts in a way that conveys your respect and best wishes? You can send some beautiful blooms, that's what.

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 »

City Line Florist helps you to take every opportunity to express love and friendship to those you care about - so who in your life would love some flowers on October 21?

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.
City Line Florist has the plants, flowers and gifts you'll need to recognize Trumbull's best boss on National Boss's Day. (October 16) Read More about Celebrating Trumbull’s Best Boss »

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 »
