The color experts at Pantone® surprised the interior and fashion design world with they chose as 2018’s color of the year, but for flower businesses like our Marco Island Florist, Ultra Violet is a gorgeous flower color that we’re eager to incorporate into some of our floral designs. It’s probably not a color you’d like to see on your walls, and you may or may not feel okay about incorporating it into your day-to-day wardrobe, but you can embrace this trend in your home by adding splashes of Ultra Violet to your home décor with flower arrangements.

What do you know about Galentine's Day?
If you're like a lot of people, probably not a lot, so allow us at Marco Island Florist to explain. Galentine's Day - February 13th - is an occasion set aside to celebrate the love female friends have for each other. It's a fictional holiday inspired by a 2010 episode of NBC's Parks and Recreation, in which the main character Leslie Knope takes all of her girlfriends out for a lunch and declares it "only the best day of the year."

In study after study, the benefit of flowers on the body and the mind has been well proven. We know, for instance, that giving and receiving flowers keeps someone more in touch with their friends and family, which has obvious benefits on a person's well being. Hospitalized patients who have flowers or a potted plant in their room use less pain medication and have lower blood pressure when compared to their flower-less counterparts.
At Marco Island Florist, we believe one of the best ways to help heal the mind and body is to surround yourself with oxygenating, mood enhancing flowers. Read More about Flowers For Mind And Body Wellness
Here in Marco Island, there's really no such thing as winter. We call it that, but really our landscape looks nothing like the rest of the country's in the cold season. And frankly, we here at Marco Island Florist couldn't be happier about it. We love being surrounded by green (and blue!) year round, and that we still get to enjoy winter-inspired flowers, too. Even though there will be no snow days for us this December, we're still setting our tables with centerpieces and bouquets that conjure a colder scene.

Flowers are a big deal during the winter holidays. Surprised? Don't be. Christmas and Hanukkah flower purchases account for 30% of all holiday flower sales each year, a figure that reflects the fact that we dress our tables, mantles and doors with fresh blooms, bold poinsettias and fragrant winter greens.

Secret Santa, a gift swap that hinges on the giver concealing his identity from the recipient, has a mysterious background. As best we can tell, our modern version is an import from Scandinavia, where custom held that givers should go around knocking on doors and dropping presents at them (or in some cases, throwing them into the house!), all without being seen. Similar gift exchange traditions exist in Germany, Latin America, the Philippines, Ireland . . . You name it. It seems we can't get enough of the anonymous gift exchange, and we at Marco Island Florist are no different. Read More about Yummy Secret Santa Gifts
