Brighten up your office this holiday season with some magical floral decor that goes well beyond the poinsettia variety.
There's a lot of fun to be had hanging the tinsel garlands and decking out the Christmas tree with your team. Doing so builds workplace morale and gives everyone a break from seasonal stress. One way to add to the cheer is to put out some fresh blooms in holiday colors, or to gift your coworkers and colleagues with a bouquet that can grace their desks and remind them that you're grateful for their efforts.

With all that goes on at Thanksgiving - especially if you're hosting it - it can be hard to stay centered and remember what the holiday is about. Amid the hustle and bustle of grocery shopping, planning, organizing and cooking, we can forget to take a minute to appreciate what's around us. Know what helps? Flowers.
The centerpiece you put at the heart of your Thanksgiving table is often the last thing you add to it before the food and the people. It represents the beauty and bounty of the season, offering you and your guests something lovely to focus on as you eat, chat and share your blessings. Given its significance, we at Marco Island Florist think your centerpiece is something you should choose with a lot of care and attention. Read More about The Centerpiece at the Heart of the Table
Where will you be this Thanksgiving?
If you're like 50 million Americans last year, it won't be at your own table but at someone else's. And in that case, you're going to need a host or hostess gift. There's no gesture more lovely - or timeless, this is an old tradition - than sending a vase full of fresh flowers to the people who are hosting you in their home for the holiday. Whether you send the item in advance or just after Thanksgiving, as is customary, we here at Marco Island Florist know your hosts will be moved at the gesture.

Every year on or around November 11, we celebrate Veterans Day, a time to express our gratitude for our U.S. military veterans and to acknowledge their service to country. We do this through parades, parties and observances. We commemorate the occasion in our homes, spending time with our favorite vets. And yet, many of us are far away from the veterans in our family or the ones we've come to know throughout the years. And in that case, we at Marco Island Florist suggest you send a bouquet of bright blooms, straight from the Sunshine State. Read More about Bright Blooms for Bold Veterans
Let's face it, we're all thinking about what we're going to put on our dining room tables as the holidays approach.

Along with polishing the silver and stocking the pantry, we need to think about how we'll decorate our tables. We at Marco Island Florist Home & Gifts have an inkling of what you may be looking for, and it involves November's official flower: the mum. Read More about Centering on Mums

Although Sweetest Day has been a holiday since the early 1900's, until recently it was largely only recognized in the Midwest and Northeast. It's name may make you think that it is a romantic observance, but in fact the day was established for a far different purpose.
The first Sweetest Day was actually a community event organized by local candy company owners in Cleveland, OH. The executives handed out over 26,000 boxes of chocolates to shut-ins, orphans, and those down on their luck, in order to let them know that they were not forgotten members of society. The intent of the day has always been to show support and encouragement to those who may be struggling, with "sweetest" referring to candy. However, over the years, the day has evolved to include any kind gesture. Marco Island Florist Home & Gifts is proud to supply the floral designs, gifts and chocolate that will convey your love and friendship. Read More about Sweetest Day Gifts to Show Kindness
Although this area may not experience autumn like others, many of us are transplanted from more northern climes. We remember with fondness the beautiful changing leaves, the pumpkin patches and hot apple cider. And although many of the traditions of fall do not apply to us here in South Florida, many still do - the anticipation of our favorite holidays and the warmth of family and friendship are still high on our list. And many of us still change our home decor to reflect the evolving seasons, and fall designs are among the most creative and whimsical. At Marco Island Florist Home & Gifts, we still incorporate the classic traditions of fall into our seasonal bouquets and arrangements. Trust us, you'll feel all those familiar fall vibes when you decorate with these creative designs. Read More about Creative Designs & Fall Beauty in South Florida
The employer / employee relationship can be an interesting one. In fact, given that we spend approximately 35% of our waking hours in our workplace, the nature of that relationship can be the difference between loving our job and hating it. In 1958, a State Farm Insurance employee in Chicago decided that she wanted to do something to encourage positive relationships between bosses and their people. Her efforts resulted in National Boss's Day, an observance which is meant to enhance and influence our interactions in the workplace.
If you appreciate the efforts that your boss makes every day to create a dynamic and positive atmosphere, you may want to put October 16 on your calendar. National Boss's Day is a great opportunity show your appreciation, and Marco Island Florist Home & Gifts is a great place to look for gifts. Read More about Celebrating Marco Island’s Best Boss
Let's face it, here in Florida we don't really experience fall in the same way that the rest of the country does. Still, many of us grew up in places when this season meant beautiful colors, both in the changing foliage and the fall flowers. Across the country, deep reds, burnt oranges, and golden yellows are the quintessential shades of the season. Although it may feel like summer outside here in Marco Island, we can still celebrate by filling our home with the fall flowers reminiscent of the northern climates.
Flowers that bloom through the fall season include asters, sunflowers, and chrysanthemums. Potted mums are easily kept outdoors throughout the fall and winter here in South Florida, and are popular choices for outdoor home decor. If you are looking for a custom design made of fall flowers, call the experts at Marco Island Florist and let us know how we can help. Read More about Warm and Welcoming Fall Flowers
