A new soccer dad?

Recently one of our customers decided to leave the working world, and spend more time at home with his family. To wish him well we sent him a Teleflora Ford Pickup Truck. A nice gift for any man, or a mom with a new bouncing baby boy.

Football Mums & Weddings: do they go together?

They do, when you are huge Gator Fans and are you getting married before the Florida Gator - Miami Hurricane Football game. A few weeks ago, I got a call from Erin, who was coming to town to marry Derek, before the game. With a casual ceremony on campus, surrounded by good friend & family. Orange, blue & white are the colors of the day.
Corsages of white football mums for the moms, orange spray rose for a friend and orange rose bouts for the guys.

Erin bouquet was a hand tied of orange roses, with a smaller one for her attendant.

Being a Gator fan, myself.....I added a Gator pin to the blue ribbon holding the bouquet together. A nice surprise for the bride.

Best wishes to Erin & Derek and GOOOOO GATORS!!!!!!

Grandparents Day, Sunday September 7th

Grandparents Day is a family day. Schools, churches, and senior organizations honor grandparents with special events. Some families enjoy small, private gatherings. Others celebrate by holding a family reunion.
Everyone is a grandchild and can be involved in the observance of this day - a time to discover one's roots and learn patience, understanding and appreciation for the elderly. Grandparents Day is the perfect time to enhance communication between the generations.
Many times, only grandparents have answers to questions about family histories. When this information is passed down to the grandchildren, everyone can be assured of his heritage being preserved. .
Most important, Grandparents Day can signify a loving spirit that lives with in us throughout the year--a spirit of love and respect for our elders.
Why send flowers, or a card, or give your "Grandparent" a call.
