A 2008 study by American Society for Horticultural Science found that hospitalized patients who had flowers or potted plants in their rooms used less pain medication and had lower blood pressure overall than their flower-less counterparts. We here at Stadium Flowers aren't surprised; the healing properties of flowers have long been celebrated, from using them medicinally to extracting their essences for therapeutic purposes.
Get well flowers are a great way to make someone feel cared for as they endure cold and flu season, and it turns out, they just might help heal them, too. Read More about Happy Flowers For Better Health
No one would dispute the uplifting effect flowers have on us. Studies confirm that they can enhance a person's mental clarity and promote a positive outlook. They clean the air, literally breathing life into a space. In fact, we can't think of a single bad thing about flowers, except for the fact that they don't last forever. Then again, that just makes us appreciate them more.
Stadium Flowers believes that there's no better time to bring as many flowers as possible into your living space than winter. Read More about Flowers Made For Winter
When International Floral Distributors released their annual floral design trend report, we here at Stadium Flowers took note of one style in particular. Of the four identified, we're singling out "Positively Posh" in this week's blog. Why? It's so beautiful, for one.
The real reason to look ahead to 2018's most coveted styles is to feel inspired and renewed by the idea that floral design evolves. There's always room for creativity and invention, both on the part of designers and flower customers themselves. That said, the "Positively Posh" trend wouldn't be difficult for anyone to get behind.

It's officially the holidays, and we at Stadium Flowers are here for it. We've got the goods, including poinsettia centerpieces and Christmas-inspired wreaths. We're stocked with holiday bouquets and even a succulent tree. In fact, there are so many gift-worthy florals and plants on our shelves we can't represent them all here - you'll have to go and see for yourself.
What we do want to highlight are those floral designs that have a bit of fun, making them the perfect choice for a gift. You can give these to anybody on your "nice" list - friends, coworkers, neighbors, teachers - and it's sure to bring them some good old fashioned holiday cheer.

So you're participating in Secret Santa this year. There are only two questions: Can you keep your identity a secret in the weeks leading up to the big exchange? And what on earth will you give?
At Stadium Flowers, we know that anonymous gift swaps can sometimes be tricky situations in that you may not know the particular tastes and preferences of the person you've been randomly assigned. Of course, this is partly what makes Secret Santa so fun - seeing what people give and what they get. That said, we're here to help you make a great gift choice.

It's the time of year when we're exchanging gifts and gathering together, delighting in the chance to be in each other's company and to bring a smile to our loved ones' faces. In our view here at Stadium Flowers, there's no better gift to give than flowers, which instantly lift the spirit - or in the case of the holidays - set it.
We also think it's important to give back to our community. There's no greater gift to give than our time, energy and resources to deserving institutions, the ones who lift us up and endeavor to serve and protect those most vulnerable. And that's why we're donating to Providence Health & Services' Festival of Trees Gala Dinner and Live Auction, as we've done for over 20 years, since the event's inception.

We at Stadium Flowers believe that "decking the halls" doesn't just mean the one from your home's foyer to the family room. No, we'd like to see all the halls decked, including the ones at your office, which could probably use a good dose of holiday cheer. Winter greens by nature are hardy, enduring, fragrant plants that do well indoors or out and lend a lot of atmosphere to a space. This makes them the perfect pick for the workplace.

Think you know everything there is to know about holiday centerpieces? Think again.
The typical Thanksgiving centerpiece is a flat splay of harvest blooms tied off with a plaid taffeta bow and topped with a taper candle, right? It's a classic seasonal choice and looks great on any table. But we here at Stadium Flowers have upped our centerpiece game just in time for Thanksgiving, and we're loving designs that incorporate just a bit more than your average holiday arrangement.

If you're going to someone else's house for Thanksgiving this year, come bearing more than your signature stuffing: bring a host gift. And make it flowers.
The tradition of offering a host gift is old and abiding and practiced all over the world. But while some cultures have real rules in place as to what to bring and when, we here in the U.S. have become a little more flexible in how we gift our hosts. Naturally, at Stadium Flowers, we think a bouquet is never out of style. Read More about Give Your Host Flowers
As our Everett community looks forward to Veterans Day this November 11, we anticipate the parades, ceremonies and other observances held throughout the greater Seattle area in honor of our U.S. military heroes. Our community is rich with veterans young and old who we come together to acknowledge. But we here at Stadium Flowers also believe in the power of the personal gesture. Given the fact that so many of our favorite patriots live across the country or may not be able to attend one of the events intended to celebrate them, we say a Veterans Day flower gift is just the thing.
