With Grandparents Day on the horizon (September 9), we're thinking about those traditions we've inherited from the most cherished elders in our lives, and especially the ones that relate to flowers.

It's the end of summer, and we can finally breathe again. In fact, Labor Day, which falls every year on the first Monday in September, is a day designed for us to do just that. Not only devised to celebrate the American worker, this is a day to devoted to letting those workers rest. City Line Florist thinks it's the perfect moment to introduce some white flowers into your home as a kind of refresher and re-set before the onset of fall. And yes, you can enjoy white fashion and white flowers any time of year, we promise. Read More about Serene, White Flowers For End Of Summer »

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 »

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 »

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.
