Come May 1st, rosé becomes a staple in nearly every home across America — and for good reason. Wine lovers like that it’s not as heavy as red wine but still packs enough punch to bring out the flavors of grilled meats. If rosé will be gracing your brunch, lunch, or dinner table this summer (and it really should) make sure it’s adding to your meal by pairing it with the right foods.
Once temperatures hit 70 degrees, you know it’s time for two things: backyard barbecues and rosé wine.
Sure its pink coloring helped it get on Millennials’ good side at first, but the truth is, rosé is beloved by people young and old, far and local. In fact, just last summer in France, rosé outsold white wine for the first time ever! With warm weather finally here, we’ve rounded up the best places to enjoy what’s been called “summer’s hottest drink.”
Our homes aren’t the only place that could use a little décor to help create a peaceful and serene environment–our place of work can benefit from the same. Aside from hanging pictures with positive sayings and decorating our desks with photos of family members, having plants throughout the office can also make us smile. Not only can they make you feel good, but studies have shown that employees are more productive when workplaces are decorated with some indoor office plants.
Could your office use a pick-me-up? If so, here are some of the best plants:
Graduation Decorations That Go for the Gold
Graduation truly is a time to sparkle and shine—and using gold in your party décor will also put you right on trend. Gold is everywhere these days and in many different ways: foil, leaf, glitter, tassel, etc. Here are a few easy ways to make your graduation the one that outshines the rest!
Duct tape, you’ve come a long way! One of the simplest ways to customize and add some pizzazz to your centerpieces is to wrap a piece of gold duct tape around the vase and write a message on the tape. This gold duct tape is actually dry-erase as well—what could be easier! Continue Reading…
Graduation ceremonies are coming up quick, and if you’re attending one to celebrate someone’s accomplishments, giving a gift to a graduate, or throwing a graduation party, one thing you must definitely know about is flowers. Just like you would carefully consider the type of flowers used in a wedding or other formal event, it’s important to take the time and really think about what kind of floral arrangement, as well as what type of flower, is most appropriate for this occasion.
With flowers being the go-to Mother’s Day gift, it’s important to remember to properly take care of your Mother’s Day flowers (just like Mom took care of you!).
Meet Daisy, a floral designer here at 1800Flowers.com. She’s here to uncover everything you need to know about keeping your flowers as fresh as possible, so that Mom can enjoy them day after day!
My daughter Casey got married this past September. I have created so many events over the course of my career with 1-800-Flowers.com and made more wedding bouquets than I can count. But the bouquets that I made for Casey and her daughter and maid of honor and my sweet granddaughter Juliette were by far the most meaningful.
A Unique Mother’s Day Activity to Wow Mom
Spring is here and Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Have you started to think about how you can show mom just how much you love her and how special she is? Hosting a Mother’s Day wine tasting is a fun way to spend time with mom for you to enjoy the holiday together!
The planning and preparation can be as much fun as the event itself! Getting together with a few of your and moms friends to plan a Mother Daughter Wine Tasting party, makes for a great girls day and for a guaranteed good time. In addition to the mother/daughter ideas, a Mother’s Day wine tasting for the whole family (21 and older of course!), can be equally as fun!
Flowers and tea sets go together like mothers and daughters: Individually they are each beautiful, but together they are even better, bringing out the best in each other! I was so excited to see that 1-800 Flowers is offering this lovely new tea set, designed by the equally stunning supermodel and mom Miranda Kerr, in their Mother’s Day Flowers Collection, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it!
Miranda created this tea set, exclusively for Royal Albert, in her bestselling “Friendship” pattern. The fact that everyone’s best friend is their mom makes this the perfect arrangement for a Mother’s Day celebration. Both the teapot and the bouquet feature lush magenta peonies and fluttering butterflies. Adding to the English garden vibe of the bouquet are roses, spray roses, and bupleurum. See what I mean about the “better together” thing? You can take the tea time theme in all different directions. Just find some great mix and match containers and see where they take you.
