Fathers Day June 19 Brant Florist Gift Ideas

Flowers and Gifts for Men

Father’s Day is Sunday June 19th – how will you show your appreciation for the Fathers in your life?

So many men are difficult to buy for. They either say they do not need anything, or you are trying to get a gift for a man that already has everything.

If this sounds like your dad, think outside the box this year and give him the gift of flowers. Flowers or a planter is the perfect way to let dad know you’re thinking about him on Father’s Day. The great thing about gifting Father’s Day flowers for dad is that you can get them sent right to his door. This is a great gift option especially if you won’t be able to see him on Father’s Day, but want to let him know you’re thinking of him.

A custom written card makes the gift personal and thoughtful, as you can write anything that will be meaningful to dad.

We have crafted several arrangements and planters that are perfect flowers for men, including flower arrangements that are displayed in a truck, boat or a mug.

If your dad isn’t much of a fan of flowers, you can get dad a Father’s Day gift baskets, which you can also schedule for delivery so he can enjoy on his day. If our pre-made “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” or “Chocolate Lover’s Surprise” baskets don’t fit your dad’s personality, you can customize a gift basket to include the perfect items that you know your dad will love.

However you choose to say “I love you” to your dad this year, we’ve got your gifting needs covered at Brant Florist, under our Father’s Day products page.

Wishing all the dad’s out there a very Happy Father’s Day!

Burlington Horticultural Society Flower Show

The first June meeting the Burlington Horticultural Society is having is also a Flower Show open to the public. This annual flower show invites local horticulturalists – both aspiring and seasoned – to enter their flowers into the show to be recognized for their green thumbs and beautifully grown flora. This gathering of locally grown flowers draws Burlington residents to the show to admire and enjoy. This will be a night for admiring local flowers and learning a little something as well, about flowers and gardens and how they grow in a different part of the world.

The guest speaker this year is Virginia Jameson, giving a talk on Gardens of Switzerland, which are numerous and spectacular.

As flower enthusiasts ourselves at Brant Florist, we are delighted that spring and summer flowers are so joyously and publicly celebrated locally in our town as well as around the world. Among their many benefits, flowers bring people together! We’re excited to come together around flowers in Burlington for this year’s Flower Show in June.

The Burlington Horticultural Flower Show takes place on June 8, 2016 at the Burlington Seniors’ Centre – 2285 New St. Burlington, Ontario from 7:30pm-10:00pm.

VarietyWedding Flower | Centrepiece |2016 Wedding Trends | Brant Florist Wedding Flowers

Mix it up at your wedding by making each wedding centrepiece different. Not all the tables, or your bridesmaid’s bouquets, need to look the same! This element of variety is very trendy this year. You can either stick with a similar colour and a different variety of flower type, or choose all different colours of flowers and use all of your favourite colours that you just couldn’t choose from this year.

Boutonnieres and corsages

Match your boutonnieres for your groomsmen to your bridesmaids’ flower bouquets or corsages.

If you’re going with the variSummer Wedding Trend Bridesmaids Flowers | Brant Florist Wedding Flowersety trend, make sure the flower in the groomsman’s boutonniere is the same colour flower as the bouquet of the bridesmaid’s that he is walking down the aisle! This keeps the variety as a fresh element and keeps a unified consistency to your wedding party.

 

Fresh and Local

A guaranteed trend this year is that of local and seasonal. By choosing wedding flowers that are in season where you are holding your wedding, you’re ensuring not only the freshest cut flowers, but also that they are from a local florist.

There is no better choice than supporting local businesses and displaying flower arrangements that were prepared only days before your big day.

Our website is organized and categorized by season and occasion for so many more ideas on summer wedding flower trends for 2016!

One of the best reasons to send flowers is no reason at all

It’s a wonderful feeling to give or receive flowers from Brant Florist in Burlington, but possibly never more so than when there’s no special occasion to celebrate.

Are you in the habit of sending flowers only on a birthday or Mother’s Day? Flowers are always appreciated, especially when they’re completely unexpected.

Send flowers not because of a specific date on the calendar, like Mothers Day, but simply because you can! Not only will it make your loved one’s day, but you’ll feel great doing so. There are 365 days in a year, and the recipient of your gift will love flowers on any one of those 365 days.

A home or office space is immediately brightened with a bouquet of colourful flowers, and it’s a constant reminder that someone cared enough to send them — just because.

If you want to send Mother’s day flowers that are especially long-lasting, an elegant orchid plant is a perfect choice.
