Grandparents Day began in West Virginia in the 1970s as an opportunity for families to gather together. Its purpose was to give grandchildren a special day to honor their grandparents, to teach them the importance of learning from an older generation, and to allow grandparents a day to shower love on their children’s children. Since the beginning, this day has opened opportunities for children and grandparents to connect. Zeidler’s Flowers encourages you to continue the tradition this September, when Grandparents Day is observed on the first Sunday after Labor Day. Read More about Floral Traditions We Love To Inherit
As summer comes to a close and fall approaches, consider hanging on to some of your bright whites for a little longer. While tradition held to the notion of packing away our summer whites for the season, modern trends encourage us to keep using white in our homes and wardrobes long after the first snowfall. Try incorporating white items into your favorite room for a fresh look as we enter these cooler months. The designers at Zeidler’s Flowers have created some amazing all-white arrangements to compliment your stylish new look. Read More about A Snowy White Floral Design For Summer Too
Having a natural garden in your own backyard is all about including organic elements that help your garden’s ecosystem thrive. Excluding harmful pesticides and other chemicals and adding flowers and produce that attract helpful pollinating insects like bees is a great way to create a healthy outdoor environment for everyone to enjoy. Farm-fresh flowers and produce can be as close as your own yard when you use environmentally-responsible growing methods. For example, did you know that dill and onions are natural pest repellants? Plant a few among your garden to ward off unwanted visitors. On the other hand, bees and butterflies play an important role in pollinating many of our food sources. Zeidler’s Flowers encourages you to help bees recover their dwindling numbers by adding bee-friendly flowers to your garden-scape. Read More about A Garden In Your House And Your Backyard
