Hydrangea Floral Designs

By beneva on July 6, 2017 in Flowers, Summer Flowers. 0 Comments

Blooming from early spring through the fall, hydrangea are at their height during the summer months. These amazing and ethereal flowers are found literally around the world, growing everywhere from Asia to the Americas (they were originally discovered in Japan). The hydrangea plant has a delicate color palette and soft, fluffy petals that create a truly special aesthetic, which is most often utilized as a backdrop in mixed arrangements. This summer, however, Beneva Flowers would like to shine a spotlight on this special flower, and recommend that you stop in to get a vase overflowing with these true beauties. Did You Know? Hydrangea floral designs may look good enough to eat, but they are mildly toxic. Keep up and away from pets who may be tempted by the delicious colors.  Read More about Hydrangea Floral Designs

Anniversaries & Wedding Celebrations

Experts tell us that across the United States, the most popular month for weddings is June. Of course, here in South Florida, the weather is quite different than most of the country. 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.  Read More about Anniversaries & Wedding Celebrations

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
