Healthy and Happy In The New Year

As we roll into 2019, we often begin the New Year by making small changes that will have a positive impact on our life, health and happiness. At Norton's Florist, we believe that adding flowers to your daily life will do just that. Here’s why: Flowers boost creativity. Flowers, particularly their bright colorful blooms, are known to help you open your mind to new possibilities. Place flowers wherever you work and find yourself thinking outside of the box more often. Flowers help reduce stress. Studies show that looking at the color green, especially plant life, will help lower levels of stress and anxiety. Include flowers on your office desk for a calm, soothing effect on your daily work. Flowers can help strengthen your relationships. Taking care of another living being has been shown to help you become more compassionate, empathetic and others-focused. Let these traits carry over into all of your relationships by caring for flowers on a daily basis. Read More about Healthy and Happy In The New Year »

A Holiday Gift Guide For Flower Lovers

Dear Santa, My favorite flower enthusiast has been very good this year, so I'm hoping you can bring him something from the following list! I've created a holiday gift guide to help you. A gardening tool kit. From spades and new gloves to garden decor and a gathering basket, anything that enhances his love for gardening will be treasured. Flower pots or vases. Between growing new buds to displaying full blooms, he can always use new, creative containers. An annual membership to our local botanical garden.

Holiday Wreaths for Veterans

Though the holidays are a time to be merry and bright, for the families of fallen veterans and service men and women, this season can often bring feelings of sadness or grief. When the absence of a loved one leaves an empty space in your holiday spirit, consider joining one of the hundreds of Wreath Across America campaigns. This program, begun in Arlington National Cemetery, promotes wreath-laying on the grave sites of fallen heroes across the nation and abroad. Being part of something so meaningful can bring healing and peace to hurting hearts this holiday season.

A Fun Approach To Thanksgiving

If you’re looking to try something new for Thanksgiving this year, think about trying to create a historically-accurate Thanksgiving with traditional food, clothing and decor from the original Thanksgiving. Take some time to do a little research or invite children to participate in discovering what foods, drinks and other items were served at the first Thanksgiving. Dress up as pilgrims or Native Americans and dress your table as it would have been decorated in Plymouth. The floral experts at Norton’s Florist have a beautiful collection of fall centerpieces that will go perfectly with your historic Thanksgiving this year.

Harvest Flowers At The Heart Of Your Table

Now that fall has arrived, we begin to think about decorating for holiday and seasonal gatherings. If you want a stylish, creative tablescape to enjoy all season, take a look at some of these great tips and advice from the creative experts at Norton’s Florist. Use a few key fall colors like shades of chocolate and pumpkin, a burlap table runner and clear candlesticks topped with mini pumpkins instead of candles. The simplicity of this design will give off a calm, peaceful ambiance for you and your guests. Design a tablescape with a collection of ceramic and real pumpkins in all white, blue or yellow to create an elegant seasonal table. Use candles to define space across your table and leave a visually stunning impression. Tall tapers, short round tri-wicks, tealights and mid-sized candles, all in the same shade of autumn neutrals, will create a lovely effect.
