Happiness Grows Floral Arrangement

At Cole’s Flowers, we believe that flowers are the perfect gift for your loved ones. It’s a beautiful way of showing them that you care and appreciate their presence in your life.

November is National Caregiver Appreciation Month, a time when we think of the people in our lives who have given their lives to care for someone in need.

It takes a special person to be a caregiver and we can’t think of a better way to show appreciation than with a Cole’s Flowers arrangement.

Check out our recommended arrangements:

Happiness Grows

It’s in the name. Happiness grows by way of bicolored circus roses, purple monte casino asters, orange tulips, and a whole lot more color. This arrangement will dazzle any special someone, and make for a beautiful centerpiece wherever, whenever. Click here to view this arrangement.

Have a Lovely Day

Here’s another one where the name says it all. This glass vase, consisting of sunny yellow lilies and bi-colored roses, is sure to keep any person smiling long after. It gets across a simple message: you deserve to have a lovely day! Click here to see this arrangement.

Out of the Woods

We love this arrangement for two reasons. First, it’s a beautiful display of color, with red gerberas, liatris, misty blue limonium, and other dazzling flowers—sure to display affection to any caregiver in question. And second, because it’s perfect for this time of the year, with an autumnal aesthetic that everyone loves. Order your ‘Out of the Woods’ arrangement here.

There’s nothing else that says ‘I appreciate you’ more than a customized flower arrangement. At Cole’s Flowers, we create arrangements that we know our clients will appreciate, either as the recipient or the sender.

Oh, and guess what? “National Do Something Nice Day” is right around this corner — it’s actually this Friday!

At Cole’s Flowers, we suggest sending a special assortment of fresh florals to a loved one.

Awe-Inspiring Autumn

Because even if it’s “Do Something Nice Day,” it’s also still autumn. Which means that anyone would be delighted by some fall colors. That’s where our Awe-Inspiring Autumn arrangement comes in: a dazzling performance of orange Asiatic lilies, yellow roses, blue delphinium, and more take the stage for this one.

Celebrate Today!

And last but not least, the arrangement that is the most straightforward: Celebrate Today! We’ve always loved this arrangement of purple iris, orange gerberas, hot pink spray roses, and much more because it can really work in any occasion. Whether it’s a birthday, a celebration, or “Do Something Nice Day,” Celebrate Today is here for you!

More Fresh Fall Arrangements to Consider

Posted: September 25th, 2018
Fresh Fall Floral Arrangement

Cole’s Flowers is a big fan of autumn, and to show our love for the season, we’ve created a diverse seasonal list of floral arrangements. We’ve already showcased several new fall arrangements in a previous blog but we have many more to feature.

Here are some more fall arrangements to consider from Cole’s Flowers so you can showcase the fall season at home.

Awe-Inspiring Autumn

To us, autumn is awe-inspiring. And what that means for our Awe-Inspiring Autumn arrangement, at least, are orange asiatic lilies, yellow roses, mini red carnations and more. The idea is to show off what it is we love about autumn with an explosion of crisp color. The classic urn vase also brings a fashionable style to the arrangement.

Vivid Amber

Our Vivid Amber arrangement is one of our favorites because of its simplicity: a few types of flowers—including eucalyptus, orange and red roses, and yellow lilies—in a ginger jar vase easily demonstrate the colors of fall in a clear and cohesive manner.

Hot & Spicy

Our Hot & Spicy arrangement brings bold statements of red and orange that turn up the heat on fall florals. With days still being somewhat warm, this arrangement gives off the energy of summer that typically lasts through the first week or so of fall. And with that comes peach gerberas, red charlotte roses, orange carnations, and more.

Romancing the Royal

We have to say: our Romancing the Royal is a different fall arrangement than most. You don’t normally see shades of purple and pink this time of the year, but they go so lovely with yellow gladiolus and roses. Who says you can’t have a little fun with color in the fall?

Another season, another great time to show your appreciation with flowers for a loved one or for your own home. Contact Cole’s Flowers in Middlebury to find out more about our fall arrangements!

Fall Flower ArrangementsCrisp Autumn Morning Basket

 If the arrangement above is the first major fall arrangement to be featured, then this one is a close second. The Crisp Autumn Morning Basket is bursting with color, featuring yellow sunflowers, tulips, and dried mushrooms. It comes in a rectangular wicker basket, almost if it’s ready for an autumnal picnic.

Bonfire Nights Bouquet

 We love this fall floral arrangement because it’s a homage to the waning nights of summer, but also, a glimpse at the colors to come. The chrysanthemums are bronze and yellow; the spray roses are orange, and the daisy poms, butterscotch.

Fresh Floral ArrangementAutumn Adventure

 And what would this list about fall floral arrangements be without our Autumn Adventure? Orange Gerberas, Rust Leondis Roses, and bi-colored Flame Mini Callas make this tall rectangular vase piece a spectrum of autumnal palettes, one that is sure to make any gathering more memorable.

Floral Arrangement from Coles Flowers

People all around the world have celebrated Earth Day every April for decades. What started as a celebration at thousands of colleges and universities across America back in 1970 has grown to be a global celebration. The holiday has evolved quite but the mission remains the same: To protect the environment at all costs and to promote the idea that everyone should be playing a part in doing what’s best for the Earth on a daily basis.

If you’re taking part in Earth Day festivities on April 22, 2018, start by decorating your space with fresh floral arrangements from Cole’s Flowers.

Cole’s Flowers is a big believer in using the beauty of flowers to show people the importance of caring for the Earth and all that it creates. Take a look at a few of the floral arrangements that would be best to acknowledge Earth Day this year.

Bring Your Garden Views Inside

Nothing will make you appreciate the Earth quite like a trip to your garden. Between the flowers that are in full bloom and the birds that congregate inside of it, it’s impossible to spend time in a garden and not be thankful for what the Earth provides. Now, you can get that same feeling in your home with our PreviewBlissful Garden Flower BSunflower Floral Arrangement asket filled with blue hyacinth, yellow daffodils, hot pink garden roses, orange and yellow tulips, green hydrangea, and a bird’s nest to top it all off.

Consider Blooming Beams of Sunshine

While a basket filled with colorful flowers will no doubt remind you of the Earth’s beauty, there’s a much simpler arrangement that will also do the trick. Our Pot O’ Sunflowers Topiary Arrangement is designed to brighten up any room by celebrating both the sunflowers themselves and the lotus seed pods that emulate the brown spot located in the middle of the sunflowers.
