Benefits of Ordering from Your Local Florist

Posted: July 9th, 2018
Fresh Floral Arrangement at Coles Flowers

Flowers bring joy and light into the world, making them the most suitable, all-purpose decoration and a gorgeous gift for any loved one.

Although you can often find flowers at numerous locations throughout your town, there are many benefits to ordering from your local florist.

Fresh Florals

Local florists focus solely on taking care of their precious flowers. Through ensuring they receive proper nutrition and changing the water, to storing the flowers at the right temperature, local florists are professionals who boast their specialized stash of fresh flowers. Places like supermarkets often receive flowers they fail to care for properly, leading to duller flowers that last for less time.

Vibrant Variety

Many local florists double as greenhouses where they grow their own flowers and plants. Local florists therefore offer large varieties of beautiful blooms, from seasonal treasures to all-time favorites. These locally grown plants look and smell fresher than ones you may find at a store, which may wilt in a few days depending on how it was stored before it found its way to your home.

Creative Combinations

Stores often sell mass-produced, premade bouquets containing a few different types of flowers bunched together the same way as the other bouquets behind it. On the other hand, local florists create stunning arrangements and combinations of flowers to suit different moods, seasons, and holidays! These artists use their expertise to mix together numerous types of flowers in varying spectacular colors, inventing awesome arrangements for every occasion.

Riveting Recommendations

We gift beautiful bouquets to our friends, coworkers, and family members to lift them up, celebrate their accomplishments, congratulate them for a new job, or to help them feel better. These important events require only the best bouquets to get your message across. Local florists work with you to provide recommendations for the best type of flowers to suit your needs, answering any questions and showing you possible floral combinations on the spot.

Trust Cole’s Flowers for local, fresh, vibrant, and creative arrangements perfect for all occasions!

How Fresh Flowers Offer Health Benefits

Posted: June 25th, 2018
Fresh Flower Bouquet

We often present fresh bouquets to the special people in our lives to celebrate holidays or to commemorate big events.

However, the decision to keep fresh flowers throughout your home comes with numerous physical and mental health benefits.

As if the joy and aroma associated with flowers was not enough, fresh flowers can also improve your air quality, help you relax, and inspire creativity and focus. Here are some reasons why fresh flowers are the perfect “just because” addition to your home.

Boost Your Mood

A vase of fresh flowers quickly transforms and boosts your mood. When you are in low spirits, seeing and smelling a fresh bouquet of your favorite flowers can instantly lift you up. Beat the morning blues by placing flowers in places where you get ready in the morning; this invigorating technique helps you start your day with a revived start, causing you to feel relaxed, less anxious, and more empathetic towards others.

Improve Air Quality

Keeping leafy green indoor flowers and plants can increase your air quality by getting rid of toxins like carbon monoxide and formaldehyde. Houseplants and flowers can eliminate the pollutants in your air that cause issues such as headaches, coughs, and colds. People with allergies can benefit from houseplants that rid of certain toxins. Flowers also come with different memorable aromas that keep your home smelling fresh and clean year-round.

Initiate Relaxation

Natural beauty often takes our breath away, making us leave behind our stress and taking us to a mental space of relaxation and inner bliss. Walking in the door of a home filled with gorgeous flowers and plants in vibrant colors helps us to slow down and focus on something positive. Taking the time to sit back and look at each unique bouquet can slow your mind and produce an instant relaxing effect.

Increase Creativity and Focus

A classic go-to for sparking creativity, flowers are naturally unique and inspiring. Keeping fresh flowers in your home enhances your thought process and encourages imagination for adults and children alike. Flowers can give you a sense of inner peace and tranquility, both of which are needed to come up with great ideas. This in turn can make you more productive, motivating you to complete tasks and imparting feelings of achievement.

The health benefits of fresh flowers go beyond making you happy. Select your next indoor masterpiece from Cole’s Flowers, delivering the highest quality floral arrangements perfect for boosting your home’s interior.
