Unique vases and containers for cut fresh flowers

Flowers are beautiful in any form, whether arranged in a fabulous cut crystal vase, loosely placed in a mason jar, or even growing through a crack in the sidewalk. Get creative with your floral arrangements and use things like coffee mugs, pitchers, bowls, and baskets for a little extra fun and flair.

Planning flowers for your event

Fresh flowers add a wonderful touch to any event, whether a backyard party, a corporate celebration, or a nonprofit fundraiser. They bring a fresh, organic beauty to the event and help it feel warm and inviting. They show your attendees that you went the extra mile and really paid attention to detail.

Here are a few things Lilygrass suggests you keep in mind when deciding on flowers for your next event.

Flower Spotlight: Zinnia

Zinnias are a fascinating sunflower variety within the daisy family. Native to scrubby grasslands in Mexico, South America, and the southwestern United States, zinnias get their name from Johann Gottfried Zinn, who was a German Master Botanist.

These annual blooms are grown in either mounding shrub or upright stem form. The plants range in height from 4" to 40" tall, and the leaves are usually linear or ovate in shape. They can feature a single row of petals or a dome shape and come in white, yellow, red, orange, and purple.

Celebrate the new school year with gifts for all

Back to school means change for parents and children alike. Whether it’s their first day of kindergarten or first day of their senior year, these times of change can be challenging and maybe even a little scary. Sometimes a thoughtful gift can help ease the tension and offer encouragement for a great year ahead.
