The relationship between a child and a grandparent is truly unique. Kids thrive by learning from a different generation than their own and having the experience of learning about your child’s child is like none other. That’s why Grandparents Day was created in the 1970s. Marian McQuade wanted a day to spend with family, including her 43 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Marco Island Florist suggests building that special relationship between grandparent and grandchild by sending or bringing a bouquet full of flowers with significant meaning. Telling about the importance of the flowers you choose could be a new memory all its own. Read More about Maintaining Family Traditions Through Flowers »

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 »

Along with polishing the silver and stocking the pantry, we need to think about how we'll decorate our tables.

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 »
