On September 10, we have the opportunity to celebrate some of the most special people in our lives. It is a day set aside to both celebrate our family's history and legacy, and to recognize Grandma and Grandpa in a special way. The floral experts at Boyd's Flowers are here to help you to create arrangements for Grandparents Day that are sure to convey your love and appreciation.
Did You Know? While in some cultures multi-cultural living is the norm, in the United States the arrangement has not been as common.

September birthdays are a celebration in blue! The birth stone of the month is the brilliant sapphire - and although the gem occurs in many colors, it is the iconic blue which inspires us for birthday bouquets and gifts. True blue flowers can include delphinium, larkspur, forget-me-nots, blue iris and hydrangea - as well as blue asters, which are especially appropriate as asters are the birth flower of September. The designers at Boy's Flowers have crafted beautiful arrangements both with blue accents, as well as with asters , and whichever you choose, you'll know your September birthdays will be amazing.

It's summertime, and seasonal flowers are in full bloom everywhere you look. You can bring the beauty of the outdoors in, and display beautiful arrangements throughout your home, with the help of Boyd’s Flowers. We have some great ideas for summer decorating, so shop our collection of summer floral designs or talk to one of our design experts. One of our favorite summer flowers to design with is the hydrangea - these showy blooms are as bright and colorful as they are versatile.
Because they bloom from early spring to late autumn, hydrangea are an excellent summer flower. They are most often seen in shades of blue and pink, and interestingly enough, those shades are determined by the Ph levels of the soil, not by the variety of plant. Different hybrids and lighting variations can also result in white and green varieties, although these are not nearly as common worldwide. Read More about Beautiful Summer Hydrangea
