We're officially in summer now, with the solstice just this past week, and it's the perfect time to host a seasonal party. This is an occasion to plan a robust menu full of the fresh fruits of the season---a charcuterie teeming with meats and cheeses along with figs and olives. Citrus-flecked ceviche, platters of luscious salmon and bowls of gazpacho. And waiting in the wings? A juicy dessert, something along the lines of cherry pie or icy cold sorbet. With a menu such as this, you're going to need an equally inspired centerpiece. The flowers should be bright and festive and full of good humor, a sense of lightness and sweetness. Stadium Flowers has just the thing. Read More about Make It An Unforgettable Dinner Party »

Peonies are having a moment. They're likely to be heavily featured in the royal wedding on May 19, and since 2016, they've been steadily increasing in popularity. As summer's iconic blossom, they can seemingly do no wrong. Though there are more than 30 species, when we talk about peonies, we're usually referring to the herbaceous variety. You know the one. The darling of social media, it's that version that arrives as a tightly closed bulb, big as your fist, and then slowly unfurls, seemingly petal by petal. Here at Stadium Flowers, we can entirely understand all the peony love. Delicate, romantic and yet sturdy as all get out, peonies are like summer's earliest gift to us.

On May 28th, we honor those who lost their lives in service to country, a sacrifice that touches all of us. We come together with friends and family to remember the heroes particular to us, and also to embrace and enjoy the people in our lives now. Because of the three-day weekend (and the fact that Memorial Day is widely considered to be the beginning bookend of summer), many of us will be spending time outdoors, attending parades, hosting backyard barbecues or simply throwing the football around in the fresh air. Stadium Flowers thinks it's the perfect time to spruce up your outdoor space. Read More about A Memorial Day To Remember »

There are many unofficial observances and celebrations throughout the year, but it isn’t often that we come upon a month during which two of those occasions occur at roughly the same time. And it's more significant when the professions we honor then are service professions that require people who work in these fields, to give so much of themselves to help others. We’re talking about Nurses’ and Teachers’ Weeks. Nurses’ Week starts on Sunday, May 6, 2018, and continues until Saturday, May 12, 2018. The reason that a week-long celebration honoring nurses ends when it does is that that’s the birthdate of Florence Nightengale, the founder of modern professional nursing. National Teachers’ Week takes place takes place between May 7, 2018, and May 11, 2018. The designated National Teachers Day is May 8, 2018. We honor people in both professions for their dedication and tireless efforts to help people in ways that improve the quality of lives. Stadium Flowers encourages people in our community to recognize, honor, and celebrate nurses and teachers who made an impact in your lives, or the lives of your family members.
