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.
This is the case with our Purple Mountain Majesty, a floral tribute to the majestic mountain peaks you’ll find here in the U.S. In fact, “purple mountain majesty” originally referred to Pike’s Peak in Colorado Springs and the bluish cast some mountaintops get if you view them from a distance. This arrangement makes us think of alpine meadows in spring, as well as crystal-clear lakes and dense forests. It’s one of those pieces that brings a sense of somewhere else to your table, transporting you to a destination you’ll either recall fondly or add to your travel to-do list.
