As the summer begins to wind down, we once again turn our attention to back-to-school preparations - and those heading to college are the first to return. By the numbers, 20 million students are preparing to swarm college campuses over the next few weeks. Nearly 12 million of them will be attending an institution of higher learning for the first time; and of that group, approximately 4 million will be moving into dormitories. As preparations are taking place across the greater Seattle area, there are a few easy steps you can take to ensure that your student has the best possible chance at success when living away from home.
Stadium Flowers has been a part of your major life events for decades, and we look forward to helping you and your student transition into this new phase of life as well. Read More about Decorating College Dorms with Gifts & Plants »

It’s no coincidence that the people who play such similar roles in our lives are honored on the same day.

We are halfway through summer, and you may be looking for ways to add a bit of bright beauty into these long hot days. Transforming your decor for summer is as easy as choosing colorful flowers with a carefree vibe - and we can think of none better than the hydrangea. Known for lavish, generous flowers and a soft summery palette, the summer hydrangea is one of our favorites - and so this month, we thought we should shine a spotlight on this popular flower that sometimes gets overlooked.
Loved Around the World - Because the hydrangea is highly adaptable, it grows literally around the globe. Originally discovered in Japan, you can now find this prolific bloom cultivated everywhere from Asia to the Americas. Read More about Hydrangea Arrangements & Floral Designs »
Nature is pretty spectacular. Not only are the individual aspects of nature beautiful, fascinating, and amazing - but the interdependence exhibited by our ecosystem is something to behold. In the summertime especially, the connected lives of butterflies, bees, flowers - and us - are on full display. Flowers need butterflies to pollinate, bees need flowers to eat, we need bees to pollinate thus supporting our food supply. Therefore, creating gardens that are not only colorful and beautiful but that support bees and butterflies is something to be proud of. The floral experts at Stadium Flowers would like to use this opportunity to share some ways that you can cultivate a garden that is as good for the environment as it is for your well-being.
