Flowers And Chocolates - A Great Combination

There is nothing like flowers and what they can mean to a special someone. Flowers brighten our day, bring tears to our eyes and encourages hope for tomorrow. Yet, there is a small dainty that brings much delight as well, which we all have come to know as chocolates. When the two are put together, nothing can be compared to this loving combination.

Flowers and chocolates communicate a deep level of romance and sincere love to your special someone. The choice of flowers in the bouquet should have an element of richness and depth in color, just like the chocolate being given along with them. If you are sending flowers and chocolates, a common flower theme for your floral arrangement should be solely the red rose with lush greens or a bouquet with the red rose as the main flower. The two are not usually sent to someone that is just a friend.

The gift of flowers have been given throughout history as symbols of love. Many flowers communicate feelings such passion, friendship, and comfort. They cater to having a multi-sensory experience, where we can see, touch, and smell the joy they bring us. Billions of flowers are sold each year, including 32.1 billion in 2011. With flowers doing as much as they do, chocolates just makes the gift experience better.

Chocolates are great choice to give as an additional gift, especially to a woman. Men like chocolate, but women love chocolate! Chocolate is a "feel good" food for women all around the world. Scientifically, chocolate is a neurotransmitter and lifts the level of serotonin in the body. For women that encounter the up and down levels of stress, chocolate literally makes them feel happy. Of course too much of chocolate is not healthy, but every once and a well, can be a pleasure for the one you admire.

There are a variety of chocolates to make your floral arrangement more enjoyable. One popular chocolate that compliments floral arrangements the best is the chocolate truffle. These delicious treats are typically made with ganache centered in the inside and coated with dark or milk chocolate. Truffles can also be centered with caramel, nuts, graham crackers, fudge, berries, and even marshmallows. They can be lightly touched with a sprinkle of sea salt or lined with elegant stripped chocolate designs on the outside layers to add to the delicacy.

Wedding Boutonnieres - The Perfect Flower For The Groom

Weddings are so special and we all want to look our best. This is not only for the bride and her bridesmaids, but the groom and his groomsmen. There's nothing like a boutonniere to add the right touch to the attire of the groomsmen. Holding a wedding bouquet in the hand wouldn't be fitting for a man, however, a wedding boutonniere is always perfect.

A wedding boutonniere is a flower bud designed to be worn on the left lapel of the groom and groomsmen. It has special significance, distinguishing those who are a part of the wedding party and honoring them. Just as the groom's tuxedo or suit is different from the groomsmen, so can the groom's boutonniere be. Some ideas could be to make it the same flower type and design, but larger. It can be the same design, but with a different flower bud. You can also have a different flower and design altogether.

It is placed on the outside of the buttonhole, not on the inside. There are a few choices to wear the pin of the boutonniere. It can be pinned inside, therefore, on the outside it can not be seen. However, a touch of elegance to the wedding boutonniere is to wear a decorative pin on the outside. This even adds more style to the attire. If you would like to be even more creative, the pocket boutonniere is another type worn in the jacket pocket. It is flower petals glued to cardboard and inserted inside the groomsmen's pockets. You can add rhinestones and other embellishments also.

The first and most important rule to remember is the wedding boutonniere chosen is based on the bridal bouquet. The groom will compliment the bride. Once the bridal bouquet is selected, then your decision for the boutonniere flower and design will be much easier. You can use fresh or silk flowers for it, however silk flowers do last longer.

They should be made to compliment the bride and bridesmaids' dress colors and style. The colors are very important and make sure that any embellishments to the boutonniere compliment the wedding colors as well. The great thing about boutonnieres is that they are few in number and are small. This comes in handy if you need a floral designer to dye the flower bud of the wedding boutonniere to a certain color if needed. This should be able to done fast and at low additional cost.

This wonderful little floral accent can make a world of difference for the matching of the entire wedding party, even if you desire for all the men in the wedding party families to wear a boutonniere. This is also perfect for making your wedding photos more beautiful. With family wearing various attire color schemes, it can be difficult to bring all the colors together for your wedding photography. These will be the primary memorabilia and you want them to be their best.

Stunning wedding boutonnieres and other floral arrangements for your special day do not have to be a chore when it comes to Peachtree Petals.

Different Types Of Corsages For Me

Corsages are some small accent flowers, yet can have a profound affect on any occasion. Corsages add to the appearance of the individual and the event itself. What makes them so special is that they are flowers that are worn on our actual person. They are worn on our waist, dress, jacket or gown during whatever event we are a part of. They also can by a symbol relative to individuals and the respective parties they are a part of, such as wedding corsages.

Yes, these tiny flowers should be desired and can have great impact. If you are trying to decide on a type of corsage, there are different types of corsages to choose from.

One type of corsage is the wrist or wristlet corsage. This is the most famous of corsages. It is made up of three to four flowers, artistically attached to a ribbon and worn around the wrist. Many people enjoy the freedom this corsages brings, without the risk of it falling off your dress. To be strikingly beautiful, they are created with flowers that are the same or a complimenting color of the attire. This is worn predominantly during wedding and proms. they also are worn by young girls during various dance events such as homecoming. The wristlet corsage moves with the arms of the individual, which can bring creativity and variety to photos. The big advantage of the wrist corsage is there is no concern of pin damage to your gown.


Another corsage type is the clothing-attached corsage. This type of corsage lays pinned gently on either side of your dress. If you are concerned about the pin harming your gown, this corsage can also be made using a magnet. Therefore, whatever florist creates them for you, feel free to request magnet corsages. Instead of putting a pin through your clothing to attach the corsage, there is simply a magnet to put behind inside your dress. This is the best choice for corsages being worn on delicate dress material. They will probably be more expensive, yet it may be worth it.

Finally, there are miscellaneous corsages. These are the corsages that are now being created by florists as new and trendy. Corsages are now being worn on women's purses. You can imagine having a gown, with a purse and a corsage on the side of it to match. It really brings a lot of flare and originality to your appearance. This corsage can be attached to the side or the handle of your handbag. Also, a popular type of corsage is the hand corsage. This one is smaller in size than a wedding bouquet, made with smaller flowers and is carried in the hand. These are just two unique ways to use corsages, however, you are not limited. If you have a great idea for a corsage use, consult with your florist and they can assist you in creating the type of corsage you desire.

Corsages are worn most often for weddings and proms. However, they can be used for any special moment to celebrate an individual. This does not necessarily have to be a large corsage. It can be on a smaller scale. It could be their birthday and 50th Anniversary. A corsage can be purchased and given for the honoree to wear during the event. This is particularly great for older women. It identifies them as being most important and really makes them feel special.

Whether a wristlet or clothing-attached corsage, they will need to be designed and be beautiful. Atlanta florists like Peachtree Petals is able to design the right corsage for you.

A Bar Mitzvah Theme is a great start to begin your event planning. For example, the Torah can be a theme for the event. Various laws and teachings can be posted all around the venue. All attendees can read while they sit and dine. It can also serve as a reminder to the adolescent of his responsibility in his life ahead. Food Variety is central to the occasion. Bar Mitzvah's are not just a celebration, but also social in nature. Therefore, the occasion is festive. A variety of snacks on each table such as nuts and candy, while the main courses are being prepared would be great. Gift basket centerpieces are excellent, because they provide so much snack variety, beauty and color to the event as well.

A Poem/Letter Centerpiece is a warm gesture of for the adolescent as well. The poem or letter can be about how so many people are proud of him. It can be words from the parents for all attending to read. It can also share some experiences in his life that communicate how special he is.

Flower Centerpieces and floral arrangements are excellentt for Bar Mitzvahs. Tall and beautiful centerpieces are recommended to symbolize growth and achievement. Floral decor can be creative such as flowers on chairs and tables. Matching corsages for the Mother and Grandmothers involved. Also, boutonnieres for the honoree, Father and Grandfathers as well.

Whether it is a Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah, flowers are always beautiful and bring life to any occasion. If you are looking for an Altanta Florist, Peachtree Petals is able to meet all of your floral needs. We have designers with over 25 years of experience and truly care about their craft. They also care about your moment. With this important event, you want a florist that cares and a florist you can trust. Visit our Bar Mitzvah Flowers collection.

Finding The Perfect Wedding Flower Consultant

When shopping for the best premier Atlanta wedding florist a helpful tip is to look and listen before you tell the wedding consultant or florist exactly what you want. In many cases, florists and floral consultants will have a portfolio in their shop or on their website. Invest some time looking at their past work. Ask them questions about their floral design process. What flowers do they love and what flowers do they like least. More importantly, ask them why? Ask them about where they source their flowers and more importantly what flowers will be in season and therefore likely more budget friendly at the time of the wedding. While the package pricing and the bottom line is a key factor in the final purchasing decision, understanding their design process and passions will greatly impact if they are the designer for you.

In addition to reviewing their portfolio and discussing their design process, it is helpful to have ideas which inspire you. Tear out the photos from those bridal magazines, of styles which you like and most important any trends which you really cannot stand. If you have a favorite flower and are not seeing it featured in the current trends, jump online and find photos you can take with you to the wedding floral appointment.

Be prepared to show the designer the colors you will be using, color swatches can be very helpful. Having an understanding of the reception venue and the lay out, including the number of windows and time of the recpetion are important details to provide the designer. Talk about the season and the tempature, as some flowers, no matter how beautiful, just won't stack up to a hot Atlanta summer, despite even the premier Atlanta floral designers best efforts.

As with any artistic decision, ask for refrences. A premier Atlanta floral designer will not hesitiate to offer you a refrence or two. This is a major decision and it is important to do the research and make sure other brides feel that the consultation yielded the flowers of her dream.

While it is tempting to show up at the consultation, rattle off a list of must haves and move on crossing flowers off your long bridal to do list, it really is better to ask and explore with the floral consultant and past clients, so that you get the flowers of your dreams at a value which will make the groom sigh with relief.

Wonderful Mother's Day Gift Ideas!

"No language can express the power and beauty and heroism of a mother’s love." ~ Edwin Chapin

Mothers go the extra mile to make sure everyone is happy, comfortable and safe. On this Mother's Day, you have the opportunity to show the Mother in your life just how special she is to you. If you are wondering what to give Mom for Mother's Day this year, below are a list of gift ideas that will help you show your mother your love and gratitude.

A Visit to the Spa for the Day
With all of the work a mother does everyday, give her a visit to the spa for some relaxation and rejuvenation. Mother's love to be pampered.

Write Her A Simple Letter 
There aren't many mothers out there that wouldn't completely melt while reading a hand-written letter by their favorite person, which is you. How to write the letter is completely up to you. But whatever you do, make sure you write it from the heart.

Is Mom A Techy? Buy Her A Gadget!
Some mother's are techies! They may want something more electronic. If your mother love gadgets and apps, why not give her the must-have top rated electronic gift. TechNewsDaily recently reported a PriceGrabber's survey showing that 13% of shoppers will buy their Mom a smart phone or a tablet this Mother's Day. She will probably jump for joy, give you a huge hug and then go play with her new gadget.

Take Her Somewhere Special.
Surprise her and take Mom to that special place she loves to dine at. You could also take her to a spot she would always take you when you were younger, which you've never forgotten. Experiences mean that much and more. Let her know how special she is as a mother and how much you appreciate her and add another memorable experience to her life.

Pay Mom A Visit 
Sometimes all a mother wants is you. When life has been busy and you have not been able to spend as much time with her as you would liked to, a simple visit to see her this Mother's Day would mean more than you'll ever know. No need for cards and large gifts--your presence and the sound of your voice will let her know she is truly loved. So get on the road!

Flowers
If you do pay Mom a visit or get her a techy gadget, don't forget the flowers! There is nothing that says I love you more than wonderful bouquet of fresh, premium flowers. They can always accompany any other gift you decide to shower Mom with.

You don't have to look any further for premium flowers, Peachtree Petals can meet all your floral needs for Mother's Day! It's a special holiday, and Peachtree Petals is gearing up to make hundreds of Moms happy this year. Peachtree Petals is a popular Altanta Florist known for our quality, value, and our highly advertised free delivery throughout the Metro Atlanta area.

Mother's Day Is #1 in Flower Sales!

The big day is right around the corner and florists are looking for not just their flowers to bloom, but their sales also. If we thought Valentine's Day was something, well here comes the biggest day for the florist industry of the year--Mother's Day!

According to the society of American Florists, one-fourth of the flowers sold throughout the entire year are sold during this holiday. More than a third of adults purchase Mother's Day flowers or plants. It is also the top holiday for floral sales due to the length of days it is celebrated. Raymond Brickner of the Flower Cart Florist Company in Indiana, stated in a report, "Mother's Day is easier because it is more spread out. We make deliveries the whole week before Mother's Day. On Valentine's Day, almost everyone wants the flowers to arrive that day."

It is no wonder Mommy Day is #1 when it comes to flower sales. Everyone doesn't have a significant other, however, everyone has a Mom or knows someone who is one. All the daily expressions of love we see done by our Mothers all around the world. They go to work, they feed the kids, they clean the house, they cook, they read bedtime stories, they shop, they shop again, they cheer at the baseball game every week, and all while looking good for their hubbies at the same time. What would we do without Mothers. They are recognized and honored on this special day.

If you plan on purchasing flowers for those special Moms, you don't have to look any further. Peachtree Petals is capable of meeting all your floral arrangement needs. From one-piece bouquets for your Mother at home, to bulk floral arrangements for all the company Moms, Peachtree Petals can provide quality floral arrangements at a great price. Just opening last year, the new Atlanta Florist has become popular for our simplicity, a customer- first attitude, and most notably, our free flower delivery service within the metro Atlanta area. With Mother's Day coming, Peachtree Petals is ready to help you make your Mom's day more special than ever this year!

Record Pollen Is Here!

With an early blooming season, spring pollen is here. Actually, it's everywhere! Record amounts of pollen has arrived in March and many states are getting something along with their nice sunshine.

This month, Atlanta experienced the highest pollen count the city has had in over 13 years reported CNN. The Atlanta Allergy and Asthma Clinic measured 8,164 particles of pollen per cubic meter of air. This was a record breaking particle count for the big city. Not only is there high pollen in Atlanta, but high counts of pollen have showed up in the southeast and southwest regions of the country. Knoxville, Tennessee was rated the #1 worst city for allergies in 2011, and with the early pollen releasing, the city has a high pollen rate this year as well.

Since winter was not that cold, plants and trees are releasing pollen much earlier. This has meant hay fever and varioius allergy symptoms for millions of people to contend with. "We’re seeing it in the patients who are having much more trouble this year than they’ve had in the past, because of the very high [pollen] counts and the prolonged season," said Dr Stanley Fineman at the AAAC and president of the American College of Asthma, Allergy and Immunology.

Many have the big question should I have any concerns about cut flowers causing allergies? All flowers have pollen. Most of the types of flowers within arrangements do not carry the type of pollen that causes allergies. Calla Lilies do have high pollen on their stamen, however, florists remove them because they can discolor the flower and probably due to its' pollen. If allergies are a very sensitive issue for the recipient, Orchids are the safest choice and stay away from Blossoms, Daisies, Sunflowers and Chrysanthemums. Also, stay away flowers with visible pollen and scented flowers. The less scent a flower has, the less pollen it will have.

Inspite of the pollen in Atlanta and nationwide, you can feel at peace with purchasing floral arrangements for that special someone. Atlanta florists like Peachtree Petals can provide you with a great floral arrangement and meet all of your floral needs, even weddings . The new florist creates stunning bouquets and is known for their free delivery services in the metro Atlanta area. Experts are available to answer any questions about certain flowers you may have. Even with all the pollen we are experiencing, you can still enjoy the beauty of flowers today!

Best Flowers For March Weddings

March is the month that follows the love month of February and is before April, known for the treasured Mother's Day.  Both months get so much attention, yet they happen to give March just a little bit of the spotlight.  However, March does present to us the one and only first day of what we know as Spring.  It is officially the first season of the year, symbolizing the fresh and the new.  It is truly a great, meaningful time for weddings, and there are just the right flowers to match.  If you are about to have your big day this month, there are recommended flowers for March weddings.

One of the best flowers for March weddings are the peonies really come into season during Spring and bear a different style of flower of their own. They are beautiful for a bride this time of year. They are very elegant.  With the peonies, it is important to specify to your florist whether you would like them in full-bloom, half-bloom, or both. Another flower for a March wedding is the chamelaucium, also known as the waxflower.  The flower is as significant as its' meaning, which richly says "Happiness in marriage". Its' flowers have a waxy-feel to them. They produce a fresh aroma when the petals are crushed.

Another flower that's excellent for March weddings are hyacinths. They have a lovely fragrance.  They also work well as a complimenting flower to roses.If you prefer to play it safe, a great flower choice would be the daffodils.  The daffodils are very popular during spring time.  Their meaning is "Unrequited love". They are beautiful and their array of colors, make them very versatile flower for using in weddings.  They can be made into floral arrangements, boutonnieres, corsages, and even wedding table centerpiece decor.  If you are undecided on certain aspects for your wedding flowers, you can always go with daffodils.

Tulips are recommended for March weddings as well.  They are so tender and fresh.  They come in a variety of the typical colors used during Spring, such as pink, lemon yellow, soft greens, and lavender.  Tulips are available year-round, yet are in peak season during your spring wedding.  As a result, you will find they will be reasonably priced.   Last but not least, the rose is fitting for every wedding.  Following the use of the deep rose colors such as red and hot pink during Valentine's Day, with a March wedding, it would be fitting for using more of the softer, gentler colors of the rose.

No matter which flowers you choose for your March wedding, they will only be as beautiful as the florist that is chosen that can create that desired wedding arrangement for you. Florists like Peachtree Petals is able to provide a variety of wedding bouquets and vast floral arrangements to meet your every floral need.

Making The Life Of Your Flowers Last Longer

Flower are one of the greatest lively gifts given as an expression of gratitude and care.  It would also be a gift if the floral arrangement could remain as beautiful as the day we sent or received them.  We think to ourselves, "Only if they could last!"  The expected life span of a bouquet of flowers is at least 4 to 7 days.  However, they can last much longer.  Depending on the flowers and how well you care for them, will determine if the flowers will last longer that the expected life span.

Below are some helpful tips that will extend the life of your floral arrangement.
  • Be sure to keep the floral foam or vase filled with fresh warm water.   The flower food provided by your florist should be mixed with the water.  You will want to make sure you follow the instructions on the packet.  If your water begins to look cloudy and murky, empty the water and replace it with clean water and flower food.
  • Keep your flowers away from vents, radiators, on top of televisions, directly under ceiling fans, even sunny windows.  This may be contrary to the thinking flowers must need a lot of sun.  Excessive heat and the heat from appliances will cause flower dehydration and petals to wilt much faster than normal.
  • Make sure your floral arrangement is kept in a cool spot (65 to 75 degrees).  Do not set your bouquet near the refrigerator.  Refrigerators emits a type of humidity that can harm the flowers.  Also, fruits and vegetables release enzymes that can harm them.
  • Remove dying flowers daily. Decaying flowers can cause flower-killing organisms, which can clog stem ends also.  So promptly remove dying flowers, especially those that set in the container water.
  • A good suggestion is to replace the plant material to keep the arrangement looking full and new.
  • Cut off at a slant of 1 to 1 1/2 inches of each stem.  You will need to use a sharp knife as to not damage the stems.
  • Find out any other tips for keeping fresh the specific flowers that you have in your arrangement (i.e. carnations, lilies, hydrangeas, roses).
