The start of a New Year is a great time to think about creating a happy, healthy new you. For this new year, the floral experts at Port Charlotte Florist suggest adding flowers to your daily life. Here’s why:
Flowers reduce stress. The color green, and leafy green plants and flowers in particular, has been shown to lower levels of stress and anxiety in people who are near them or see them on a regular basis. Place flowers with leafy greens near you while you work for a calmer environment.
Flowers boost creativity. Gazing at bright colors can often lead to more creative thought. Surround yourself with your favorite flowers in your favorite colors to expand your thinking and open your mind to new possibilities.
Flowers help you breathe easier. Plants and flowers are known to purify the air around them. Surround yourself with flowers for cleaner air and easier breathing. Read More about Happy, Healthy New You
The holidays are meant to be a time of merriment, joy and festivity, but for families of fallen veterans, this can be a very difficult time. The vacancy left from a loved one's absence is incredibly loud and obvious, especially at the holidays. One way to create a new memory in their honor is by participating in a wreath-laying ceremony like those at Arlington National Cemetery. The Wreaths Across America program promotes placing wreaths on the grave sites of fallen veterans and service men and women during the holiday season. The floral designers at Port Charlotte Florist have a gorgeous collection of beautiful wreaths you can choose for your very own wreath-laying ceremony. Read More about Holiday Floral Ceremonies

Long before random acts of kindness became in vogue, a young candy worker in Cleveland imagined a day to show strangers that people cared about them. The initiative was the brainchild of Herbert Kingston, and in 1922 the candy company that he worked for took his idea and turned it into reality. The concept was simple - on a designated day, over 20,000 boxes of candy were handed out at orphanages, nursing homes, and to the homeless. While it was originally designated as a one-time event, the media picked up the story and it became a sensation. By 1927, New York State had joined in, and the tradition began to grow regionally. It was dubbed Sweetest Day to reflect the gifts of candy.
A full century later, Sweetest Day is still celebrated in many part of the United States, although it had now grown to include not only sweets, but any act of kindness - or any sweet gesture designed to encourage or inspire someone. Port Charlotte Florist would love to help you in letting people in your community know that you love and support them. Read More about Sweetest Day Celebrates Kindness
The elements and colors used in fall floral design are distinctive and easily recognizable. Even here in South Florida, where temperatures haven't cooled and colors don't change, our home decor and floral designs celebrate the warmth of the season. Many of us have been transplanted from colder climates and remember the inviting hospitality of hot cider and roaring fires. The floral designers at Port Charlotte Florist employ inspiration from traditional fall themes to create some of the most beautiful arrangements, bouquets and centerpieces in Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte and North Port. What can we make for your home or gathering?
