Make A Floral Statement This 4th of July

“Those who won our independence believed liberty to be the secret of happiness.”

-Louis D. Brandeis

For the men and women who have fought to win and keep our freedom, Independence Day means so much more. If you have anyone in your life who has valiantly served our country, consider sending them something to thank them for their sacrifice. The floral designers at Beneva Flowers have created some unique and inspiring options that will delight anyone who has served our country.

The Gift Of A Good Time With Dad

Don’t give him a gift this Father’s Day—give him an experience.

Let us at Beneva Flowers explain. The trend these days is to give presents that are less about something tangible and more about spending meaningful time with other people or having an experience. A trip to the Grand Canyon, a cooking class or a day at the theme park are all examples of this kind of present, where the emphasis is on personal growth, time with others and creating memories. We’ve got something just like this in mind for the dad in your life this June 17.

Window Into Summer’s Flowers

While it may feel like summer here in Sarasota two thirds of the year, it technically isn’t, a fact which we here at Beneva Flowers are happy to make clear. Why? Because every season has its individual flowers (though spring and summer have a lot in common), and we don’t want to take away from the debut of each crop as it springs to life. There’s plenty of reasons to take a peek at what’s in store for us this summer, even if many of its floral beauties are available to us year-round, given our climate. Warm-weather flowers not only thrive in certain temps, they look better in them. So while we may be able to get sunflowers in late winter, it’s fun to wait.

Honoring Our Heroes On Memorial Day

Here at Beneva Flowers, we are often called upon to provide the flowers and plants for bereavement services and ceremonies.

Recently, our floral designs were displayed at the funeral of one of the last remaining survivors of the USS Indianapolis, a military veteran deserving of every accolade. On Memorial Day, we remember those military men and women who died while in service. We attend parades, ceremonies and even gatherings in the home to mark this poignant occasion.
