One of the best ways to celebrate the arrival of summer is to host a June gathering that reflects all that's best about the season---and there's a lot, if you ask us here at Zeidler's Flowers. The longer, warmer days and milder nights practically require us to plan a party that takes place outdoors, ultimately lit by candles and moonlight as it winds into the evening. Our menus might take a farm-to-table approach, showcasing the season's bounty. Imagine a platter of salmon or herb-encrusted pork next to a heaping salad topped off with garden-fresh veggies. Or a charcuterie full of meats, cheeses and seasonal fruits, a cherry pie or refreshing sorbet waiting in the wings, and plenty of chilled wine on hand. All that's missing? The flowers to go with it.

There are two reasons to be thrilled it's June: weddings and anniversaries.

Whether you're looking for a wedding florist or the perfect anniversary design to give your sweetie, we're here to help you with both. Read More about Wedded To June’s Flowers

When we talk about the flowers of early summer, it's impossible not to mention roses. After all, June is designated Rose Month, and there are so many varieties that bloom with abandon during this warmer time. The rose is the perfect emblem for a season where everything is in its fullest expression: the hottest sun, some of the most drenching rains, the richest garden, the most fragrant blooms. Zeidler's Flowers welcomes the warmer months for their sense of fruition and festivity, the kind of mood that a rose design seems absolutely made for. Read More about The Roses Of Summer
Zeidler's Flowers joins our Evansville community in reflecting on the brave efforts of the men and women who died in service to country, protecting and preserving our nation's values and making our lives better for it. Many of us have been personally impacted by the loss of a soldier, and on Memorial Day, we experience both the sadness of our loss as well as a sense of hopeful patriotism and admiration. We attend parades and ceremonies that allow us to collectively mourn and reflect, and we also gather together with friends and family in each other's homes to embrace the people in our lives now even as we remember the ones we have lost. The flowers and other decor we bring to the events we host should capture the spirit of Memorial Day. Read More about The Spirit Of Memorial Day

Zeidler's Flowers is ready to celebrate our latest crop of local high school graduates, putting flowers in the hands of our young scholars to commemorate one of the biggest achievements of their lives. The ceremonies, proms, parties and other events surrounding the end of the school year are customarily steeped in flowers---worn on the lapel to dances, given in token at prom, offered with congratulations the night of graduation. For many of our young people, these will be some of the first flowers they receive (or give), making them one of the most memorable flower exchanges of their lives.

May is for mothers, we know this, but did you also know it's for nurses and teachers, too?
National Nurses Day and National Teachers Day have been around for decades, and this year, the week of May 6 through May 12 is officially dedicated to appreciating these remarkable people. These fields are dominated by women, but not just any women---these are often unsung heroes, the ones who educate, heal, nurture, protect and otherwise empower the rest of us. Zeidler's Flowers thinks they deserve our thanks all year long, but this week, it's particularly important to put something in their hands that will express what's in your heart.

Amid all of the Evansville events designed to celebrate our glorious planet this Earth Day, we here at Zeidler's Flowers want to recommend one more. We think a fitting tribute to Earth on April 22 would be to bring a bit of it into your own home and grow it into something grand. Spend the day recycling, planting, cleaning up or learning more about how we can preserve our beautiful planet, and then bring home a little piece of it with you. Growing something in your own patch of the world promotes environmental awareness among your family, giving your kids an important lesson in how to cultivate something green and alive.
