When don’t flowers matter? The truth is, they always do. Whether expected or unexpected, delivered ahead of an occasion, on the day of or just after, a flower gift becomes its own event. But there are some occasions in which it really means something to offer a gift of fresh blooms—to your daughter upon college graduation, for instance. To your wife after the birth of your first child. And it’s equally meaningful to receive them on some occasions more than others. Think of the corsage you wore at prom, the flowers you watched your father give your mom on Valentine’s Day, the first bouquet you accepted from the love of your life. Bice’s Florist knows that some flowers simply matter more than others.
It’s Creative Romance Month, and that can only mean one thing: you, trying hard to be creative in how you express your romantic feelings.
If we’re right, not to worry, Bice’s Florist has just the flowers for you to give to be fully within the spirit of the month. You don’t have to work too hard to be innovative and unexpected in how you communicate your feelings; all you need to do is think a little outside of the box.
If you leave it up to us here at Bice’s Florist, we’ll work up a dazzling floral arrangement for you that features the very best of what our designers can do. We know our flowers, but we also have the expertise and the artistry to create bouquets that meaningfully express your feelings and thoughts toward someone. Customization is a wonderful way to show your loved ones how much you care, and our talented designers love having a specific project to work on.
If you’re reading this, don’t worry; you still have plenty of time to secure your Valentine’s Day roses. The classic look is just a sea of red long-stemmers, maybe set in a glass vase and delivered with aplomb. But we at Bice’s Florist have a dynamic variety of roses available, whether they appear in mixed bouquets or on their own, stacked alongside each other in a statement bouquet.
We here at Bice’s Florist are excited to work with Pantone’s 2018 Color Of The Year, Ultra Violet, an intriguing choice. If you didn’t already know, color company Pantone convenes every year at a new international location, bringing the best minds on color together to select one emblematic shade. The idea is that the color chosen really captures the spirit of the times and possibly makes a projection about the year ahead. Ultra Violet, a majestic, cosmic shade, is meant to say a lot about who we are now and where we’re going.
Did you ever wish there was a holiday that was entirely devoted to celebrating the friendships among women? Well, we here at Bice’s Florist are here to tell you that there is, and it’s been around in some form or another since 2010, when it made its first appearance in the NBC comedy Parks and Recreation. Galentine’s Day falls on February 13th, the day before the holiday we traditionally associate with romance. These days, women are celebrating by going out to lunch or having a fun night out and exchanging gifts.
While we want to offer you a Happy New Year from Bice’s Florist, we also want to help you keep that most important of resolutions. No, we’re not talking about your diet or working out. We’re talking about making sure you always have fresh flowers in the house. Even better, we’ve made it so you don’t even have to remember to get them.
What’s the quickest way to help someone heal? If you ask us here at Bice’s Flowers, we say a pretty arrangement of fresh blooms. And research supports our thinking: a 2008 study conducted by the American Society for Horticultural Science showed that hospital patients that had flowers or potted plants in their rooms used less pain medication and had lower blood pressure. A researcher at Rutgers found that when someone receives flowers, their happiness over it lasts several days, and contact with friends and family is increased in the exchange of flowers.
Bice’s Florist is feeling inspired by the season – especially its imagery of bare branches laden with snow. While we don’t really get to enjoy the prettiest of precipitations here in Fort Worth, we can bring its palette into our home in the form of flowers.
We’re loving the cream-colored, dreamy designs on offer when it comes to winter blooms. We see them packed with greens and other organic seasonal items like berries and pine cones. The contrast is beautiful and full of dimension. Add a hint of lavender or blue here and there, and you’ve got a floral arrangement that could stop traffic.
Want to update your floral scheme for the new year rolls? Us too.
Here at Bice’s Florist, we look to International Floral Distributors’ annual trend report, which seeks to capture the floral designs that will be popular in the coming year. The styles IFD identified for 2018 are all intriguing, from posh, romantic looks to a floral aesthetic inspired by the Mediterranean. In today’s blog, we want to focus on the one that we see as the most fun: Folk Art Reinvented.
