Remember the old adage that you can’t wear white after Labor Day? That used to be applied to how you decorated your home, as well. Light and airy whites were great as curtains, throw pillows or table linens through summer. But these were expected to disappear over Labor Day weekend in favor of richer, heavier fall colors. This is no longer the norm- there are so many great ways to incorporate white into your decor well into the fall months. The designers at Marco Island Florist encourage you to play with white as you plan your living or dining room’s next look. Read More about White Floral Decor For Late Summer »
When it comes to gardens and outdoor flowers, it’s important to be purposeful in how you grow your plants, flowers, fruits and vegetables. One important element in any garden is the inclusion of bee-friendly plants. Giving bees a safe place to grow and work allows them to contribute in significant ways to a balanced eco-system as well as the world’s major food sources. By including flowers like roses, lilies, daisies and sunflowers, along with fresh water and some significant shade, bees will visit often and begin to rebuild their numbers. The floral experts at Marco Island Florist have some beautiful arrangements for porches and patios that will encourage regular visits from bees, too. Read More about All About The Bees »

You may have heard that flowers have a language all their own. For instance, red roses represent passion, love and romance, and are appropriate for your sweetheart. But in August, we are celebrating two days which are perfectly symbolized by another popular flower – the yellow rose. This cheerful bloom Is the traditional flower of friendship, and is perfect to send on National Friendship Day and National Sisters Day (both observed on August 6). Since many of us have sisters who are best friends, and best friends who are more like sisters, we love the idea of the corresponding holiday.

Won't the Bees Sting? Experts tell us that honeybees will rarely sting when they are away from the hive, and almost never when foraging for nectar. In fact, unless that are threatened, they won't pay you any mind at all. Considering how important it is to support the bee populations, creating a host garden away from your sitting area is a great way to contribute.

Even though we experience warm weather year-round, there is still something strangely magical about the summer months. Maybe it is because we remember long summer vacations from the past. Perhaps it is the emptier roads after the snowbirds and vacationers retreat to northern climes. Or perhaps it is because the daylight lingers for so many hours, that we can't help but get outside on balmy summer nights. Whether meeting by the pool, walking on the beach at sunset, or taking a leisurely bike ride, there is nothing quite like a South Florida summer. Getting together with loved ones to share a meal is also a tradition we hold dear. If your preferred style is cooking over a barbecue or enjoying gourmet dinners, summer flowers add beauty and ambiance to any table. Read More about Summer Flowers for South Florida Parties »
