Floral Designs in Fall Colors

Let's face it, in Sarasota we don't really experience fall the way the rest of the country may. Our change of colors is often from one shade of green to a different shade of green. Still, we love to celebrate the spirit and essence of autumn, with seasonal flowers in fall colors to infuse your home with cozy ambiance. If you are looking for a simple design that makes a stunning impression, look no further than the Simply Striking Sunflower Bowl. An elegant design of graceful calla lilies, bear grass and a classic sunflower makes for the perfect fall accent piece for your home - or a great gift! Read More about Floral Designs in Fall Colors »

Flowers and Plants for Housewarming Gifts

Experts tell us that nearly 50 million people move annually, and in Sarasota, we know that many of them come here! Whether you need housewarming gifts to welcome new neighbors or to congratulate friends or family on their new purchase, Beneva Flowers has great ideas perfect for welcoming them to paradise. Did You Know? In the days before electricity, housewarming parties were quite literally to keep the house warm - hence the term. When a newly married couple moved out on their own, friends and family would come over bearing gifts of firewood to get them through their first winter. Of course, in our part of the world, that particular custom may not have been so prevalent!  Read More about Flowers and Plants for Housewarming Gifts »

Formal Homecoming Flowers for the Big Dance

Homecoming weekend is a special time of remembrance and new memories, of old friends and time-honored rivalries. From the football game to the homecoming court, from the pep rallies to the last romantic dance, flowers play an important role, and the team at Beneva Flowers is ready to make your weekend one to remember! Why Homecoming? The first homecoming weekend is believed to have been at the University of Missouri in 1910. Facing their rivals in a big game, the athletic department wanted to fill the stands, and so invited alumni to "come home" for the game. Over 10,000 responded, and homecoming tradition was born.

Celebrating Grandparents Day

On September 10, the country will celebrate Grandparents Day. This is a time set aside to not only give gratitude to our elder generation, but to encourage the sharing of stories, wisdom, and family history. The brainchild of Marian McQuade, the vision behind the movement is that families would plan gatherings, hold reunions, or participate in community events together in order to foster the ideals of close family and legacy. Beneva Flowers applauds any opportunity to bring people closer together. If you wish to honor your grandparents on this special day, give us a call or shop our collection. Because flowers are always the perfect gift.  Read More about Celebrating Grandparents Day »

Make Them Smile Just Because

Sometimes our lives can be entirely too practical. We have routines and schedules, appointments and rituals. Our days are ordered and efficient - but did you ever long to just kick off your shoes and run free? August 27th gives us a great opportunity to cast off some restraint and try something "just because" - whether it is to attempt a new hobby, indulge in a guilty pleasure, or to surprise someone with a kind gesture for no reason other than to make them smile. Just Because Day gives us the perfect excuse to do whatever we like - and the team at Beneva Flowers thinks that is a great idea. Giving flowers is often tied to a specific occasion, so have a bouquet delivered "just because" is a beautiful way to not only live it up a little, but to completely make someone's day.  Read More about Make Them Smile Just Because »

Appropriate Funeral Florals

For 18 years, Beneva Florist has been Sarasota's first choice to accent all of life's occasions with beautiful flowers. While there are many happy events, sometimes we have to face the loss of a friend or family member. When the time comes, our team is here to provide you with the flowers you will need to remember them with compassion and respect. Customary Funeral Florals: These elongated, graceful stems are also called sword lilies, their name borrowed from the weapons of the Roman gladiators. This connection signifies integrity of character, remembrance, loyalty, and moral strength; and is therefore a meaningful flower for funeral services for those we love. However, they are not the only flower that is considered appropriate, as roses, lilies and carnations are also commonly used for memorial arrangements. Read More about Appropriate Funeral Florals »
