Luxurious Winter Flowers From Schneider's Florist

If you're like me, there are people in your life that seem to have everything. What do you give them for the holidays? It sounds counter intuitive, but flowers are a great way to send a really nice gift to someone you love without cluttering up their life with another thing that they have to keep forever. With that in mind, I'm sharing a few of our most interesting winter creations for your fancy friends that don't need anything. 
White roses, orchids, willow branches, with evergreens and holiday accents. Frosted brings elegance and high design into the home.
Holiday Spirit
An arrangement for winter romance. Holiday Spirit has an unexpected color palate for the season. I like the combination of seeded eucalyptus and evergreen foliage.
Whimsical Wonderland
Mixed metallic colors have been a very popular look this year. Silver, gold, and copper wire with white roses and button mums for a modern twist on the traditional Christmas tree shape. Order Whimsical Wonderland for delivery in Springfield.

I'm excited to be posting on the first of the month this time because there's so much more to see before Christmas gets here. Follow us on Twitter for updates and fun photos I don't post anywhere else.

Thanksgiving Centerpieces from Schneider's Florist

Thank you, Springfield! A look at our new chalkboard wall. We change the artwork regularly to reflect the season. Another reason to visit our location just north of downtown on Limestone Street.

It's been a fun November here in Springfield, Ohio. I've talked about Fall SpecialsLuxury Flowers, and ideas for Friendsgiving. Today I want to talk about Thanksgiving. 

Thanksgiving can be a lot of work. If you're the host, you're cooking, cleaning, and getting ready for a house full of people. On top of that, it seems like the whole world just wants to pile more work on your plate by showing you a million DIY decorating projects. 

You make a delicious homemade meal for an army of people, and now some 20 year old hipster on Pintrest is trying to make you feel bad because you don't want to spend a week making all your decorations by hand? Who has time for that? Wouldn't it be nice to take something OFF of your to-do list for a change?

Let us handle your Thanksgiving centerpiece. We will save you time and worry by creating a design that will wow your family and friends and deliver it to you in time for your celebration.

If you're a guest in someone's home, there's nothing more thoughtful than a one of our beautiful, custom designed arrangements. Easy to pick up if you're coming into town for the holiday. Easy to send to loved ones far away. Here are three fresh ideas for this year's Thanksgiving table. Click the photo captions to order now:
The Abundant Basket Centerpiece
The Harvest Centerpiece

I hope you have a great Thanksgiving, I know I will. Check back next week for our Winter Specials Preview! Until next time.

Ideas for Friendsgiving from Schnieder's Florist

Friendsgiving is a fun celebration. Sometimes it's an alternative to the family Thanksgiving, and sometimes it's in addition. I celebrate Friendsgiving at my house by having a small group over to sip fall cocktails and come up with clever ways to reinvent our collective leftovers. Casual elegance is the theme, and flowers are always on the table. Here are just a few arrangements that I think would be great for your Friendsgiving this year.

First up is Fencepost: "Bright yellow roses and sunflowers accented with bright green mums are sure to bring smiles and brighten spirits." This low, compact arrangement would be perfect for a table of four, or you could get several and place them at intervals on a long table for a nice effect. Fencepost is available for same day delivery.

Friendsgiving is usually a simpler, less formal event than family Thanksgiving. A little touch of luxury goes a long way. Woodsy Burlap is a fun arrangement that mixes modern fall colors with a rustic burlap container. Visit our location just north of downtown Springfield and pick one up for your Friendsgiving host or hostess.

Ready for something a little more impressive? I love The Autumn Breeze Bouquet. This is a premium arrangement with hydrangea, sunflowers, lilies. goldenrod, hypericum berries, and seeded eucalyptus. It would look great on your buffet or dining room table. This is a beautiful design to show your friends you are truly grateful for them.

Sometimes when I hear about a new holiday it seems cheesy or overly consumerist. I love Friendsgiving because it comes from a sincere desire to connect with the people that we choose to have in our lives.

Are you planning to celebrate Friendsgiving this year? Tell me about it in the comments or share your story with me on Facebook. I look forward to hearing from you.
