Norton’s Florist loves a good sense of tradition; after all, we’ve been around for nearly a century. Grandparents Day on September 9 is a wonderful reminder to embrace our personal customs, as well as the ones we participate in as a culture. The giving of flowers bridges both types of customs. We’ve seen people invent their own rituals and gestures for giving, and of course we supply flowers for all of the other occasions. Whether you’re offering carnations to herald the arrival of a new baby or offering a lucky bamboo for a housewarming party, your floral giving is steeped in tradition.
Roses are a classic flower, and each color symbolizes a different emotion. We give red roses to suggest our passion, pink to express our love, yellow to represent the warmth of friendship. Roses are reserved for big events and moments: the flowers you offer your daughter after her ballet performance, the bouquet you give on your anniversary. We think there’s no rose array more glorious than our Rose Rapture, a stunning piece that is rich with feeling. Give this design to the one you love and kick-off a lifetime of floral giving. This is an arrangement that gets talked about for decades, passed down as “the roses dad gave mom that one time” to the generations that follow.
