Valentine’s Day is almost here and that means we begin to think about ways we can share our heart with our special someone. This year let your partner or loved one know how much they mean to you by expressing yourself with flowers. Each flower and the colors in which they arrive can speak a different message to your loved one. For example, white can represent purity, yellow can represent friendship, pink is often sent for gentleness and of course, red is the color of passion and desire. Check out the floral designs that the artisans at Port Charlotte Florist are creating just for you this Valentine’s Day. Read More about Be Inspired To Share Your Heart

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
