There's no shortage of floral designs in winter. The holidays charge our decor with purpose, making use of all that the season has to offer, from blooms and greens to holly berry and pine cone. And while we here at Beneva Flowers have a lot of fun conjuring up holiday designs, we've got winter flower styles that speak to the whole season, too.
In Florida, we may not readily distinguish between winter bloomers and flowers that come to fruition during the warmer months, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't change up our flower game in December and January. Read More about A Winter Centerpiece With Class »

So although June has been deemed National Wedding Month, in Sarasota it is far from the most popular month to tie the knot. Therefore, to commemorate this occasion, we thought we would share a bit about Sarasota weddings and traditional anniversary flowers that transcend any season.

We probably don't need any reason or excuse to celebrate beautiful roses, but this month gives us that opportunity. June is National Rose Month, and is your chance to send a gorgeous bouquet of these classic beauties to those you love. Although a go-to flower for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and more, you can give roses any day of the year, all year long. At this time of year, we love the bright, vivid vibrancy of summer roses, and you can get them from Beneva Flowers.
Did You Know? Roses grow in every color except true-blue and black. They actually lack a gene necessary to create that color in their petals. Roses billed as "black roses" are actually a deep, dark red color. Read More about Beautiful Roses Showcased in June »

Although Memorial Day originated following the Civil War (when it was named Decoration Day), the sentiment of honor and respect has remained intact. This day has always been set apart as a day of remembrance, and continues to give us a chance to not only show esteem to those who paid the ultimate price for freedom, but to extend sympathy and compassion to spouses, siblings, or parents who may be mourning a loss. No matter who you wish to recognize on Memorial Day, you can count on Beneva Flowers to provide the beautiful floral arrangements you'll need to commemorate the occasion.

International Women's Day is a worldwide observance of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women everywhere. Recognized since in the early 1900's, the initiative believes that no single institution, corporation, charity, or government is solely responsible for the movement. Instead, they believe that all like-minded people should stand shoulder-to-shoulder to fight for justice and equality for women, no matter where they live. International Women's Day inspires unity, promotes reflection, supports advocacy and encourages action.
A Worldwide Social Gathering: On March 8, men and women alike will be involved events that take place both locally and globally. The organizers of the celebration urge everyone to tell the world about their support by tagging social media posts with #BeBoldforChange. Read More about Women’s Day Celebrations Around the World »
