Passing On Beautiful Floral Traditions

As children grow, it’s so important to allow them to learn about their family and grow in their relationships with older relatives.

Port Charlotte Florist suggests spending time together, telling stories, sharing laughter, music, recipes or even flowers that are significant within your family.

Creating a Butterfly Garden of your Own

Butterflies are among the most interesting and lovely creatures in nature. Cultivating a butterfly garden with appropriate flowers and plants (as well as a few necessary accessories) will attract butterflies, and encourage them to linger. You may think of the butterfly gardens you have seen at botanical gardens and think that a backyard version is out of reach - but butterfly gardens can come in many forms - potted plants, window boxes, or even small corners of the yard can be transformed to accommodate butterflies. And Port Charlotte Florist would love to provide the flowers you'll need to catch their eye.  Read More about Creating a Butterfly Garden of your Own »

Seasonal Flowers and Summer Centerpieces

It's summer in South Florida, and although it may be a bit warm, we still love to entertain. Be it a beach picnic or a dinner party on the lanai, we are known to get our there and celebrate the beauty of where we live. Longer evenings, brilliant sunsets, and (shall we say) balmy weather beckon - and inspire us to call family and friends to get together for a meal. Your summer table is an expression of all the fun, excitement, and anticipation of the season, so we ask - what is your summer party style? We recommend flowers no matter what the occasion for a get-together, as they add vibrant color, elegance, or whimsy to any gathering. The experts at Port Charlotte Florist have assembled a gorgeous summer flower collection, and are available to give recommendations should you need them. Water for All: Just like your guests need to stay hydrated during summer months, keep your floral arrangements well watered so they don't wilt halfway through the meal. You may wish to mist them throughout your party, and if possible, keep them in shade.  Read More about Seasonal Flowers and Summer Centerpieces »
