Flowers You May Not Know Are in Your Perfume

Do you know what is in the products you use? Some do. Some have no clue. Some people care more about it than others. Some don’t care at all. We can’t speak for all products, but when it comes to flowers, they are in plenty of the products you use.

What we put into and onto our body matters. It can impact your health and overall wellbeing. This is why many people look to nature to provide them with what they need. This includes methods for better mental and physical health.

People look to nature to increase positive endorphins for better mood, to provide a place for exercise to better increase their energy and to spark a feeling of an improved and rejuvenated look. The sun adds color to our skin, and the flowers provide fragrance, color and are natural stimulants.

Due to all that nature offers, people are finding new ways, every day, to bring these natural remedies into more and more products they use, so it is only appropriate that we highlight one favorite that consistently contains florals- perfume.

Top Flowers Found in Perfumes…

The Rose

There are a variety of different flowers that can be found in fragrances. The queen be-auty floral of choice is by no means a surprise. The classically beautiful and ever-so romantic rose is worn with pride in so many areas of the beauty industry, especially perfumes.

Rose spray is another popular option. What is rose spray for? Rosewater spray is used for a variety of reasons. It helps with acne, skin irritation and helps remove oil and dirt in pores. Its uses range from anti-aging to antioxidants.

The Jasmine

It’s a popular name, a Disney princess and a flower used across a wide array of products. The jasmine flower is even used in tea, as it has a nice scent and a natural calming effect. It is deemed one of the sweetest smelling florals in the world by many. Jasmines are even used in aromatherapy.

Jasmines are also commonly incorporated in perfumes and cosmetics due to their popular and enchanting smell.

The Violet

It is a cool color that works especially well when worn with balanced skin tones, but violet is more than an attractive color. It is a popular floral with a refined fragrance commonly used in perfumes. The two most popular violets that could be a primary ingredient in your favorite fragrance are Victoria violets and Parma violets. They are also ingredients in many oils and lotions found in cabinets everywhere.

The Plumeria

It is a strong presence. Popular for its role in creating leis- the plumeria dominates the field in floral fragrance. It is the basic ingredient for a variety of perfumes. Their durability, pastel shades and scent make the plumeria THE floral for Polynesian islanders. These florals can last without wilting in freshwater for several days. It’s a bloom that people rightfully choose to include in their perfumes.

The Lavender

Stimulate your senses with this well-versed flower. It is known to be especially successful in helping to extract calm feelings. It is used in many favorite spa treatments- massages, manicures, pedicures- and is a go-to for disinfecting, as it has a pleasant scent.

The lavender flower can help improve sleep. It is a natural pain reliever and can potentially promote hair growth. The positive benefits of lavender make it ideal for a variety of products you have at home, including perfume.

Why Flowers …

Flowers are nature’s representation of how no two things are exactly alike, not even identical twins. This may affect the perfumes you wear, as no two flower’s scents (even of the same species) are going to be the same. Perfumes are typically a concoction of oils, flowers and select ingredients carefully paired to make your favorite fragrance. Although the combinations used to create these fragrances may remain secret to preserve their quality, no two will be identical.

Flowers are chosen to pair with some of your favorite ingredients, so you can walk confidently in your chosen scent. Perfumes are practically a cocktail of florals, memories and emotion with a dash of spice. Fragrances evoke the senses and choosing the right one for you is all a part of the fun.

How to Know What Works for You

Determining the perfume or cologne that is right for you is based on one specific factor- your preference. A lot of trial and error is involved when it comes to determining what works best for you. Determine what scents you like in your daily life (i.e. vanilla or coffee) and work your way from there, as many perfumes and colognes will contain such ingredients.

Th best way of finding the right fragrance that matches your body chemistry is through testing a variety. Apply the scent to a warm area of your body like your wrist or your elbow. This allows the scent to heat up and reveal how it partners with your body’s natural fragrance.

Scents change over time and gradually lesson as it sits. Like any new relationship, it is important to take the time to court a new scent, as it may get better or may get worse over time. You want to make sure the chemistry is there before committing to it.

Body chemistry and a person’s natural scent varies among each individual person. This means that a perfume, cologne or body mist won’t smell the same on every person. It is just another reason why it is important to invest time instead of wasting money on a scent that isn’t going to work for you.

Our florists at Atmore Flower Shop serving locations in and around Atmore, AL,are here to help give you a better sense of what flowers work for you. Although we aren’t perfume or cosmetic chemists, we are experts in what formulas make for beautiful and lasting floral pairings and draw out the chemistry of emotion.

Top Landscaping Tips and Tricks for the Summer

Summer is all about fun in the sun and anything that involves nature’s embrace. If you are all about self-care and loving all that nature has to offer during the summer season, we have top landscaping tips and tricks to get your home prepped for the season.

There is a lot to consider when landscaping during the summertime. Often, your geographic area is going to be your greatest contributor to whether your landscape thrives or dies before you can reap the benefits.

Avoid the Inevitable- What You Don’t Do.

Rules are meant to be followed. Sorry to burst the bubbles of any skeptics out there. Rules even apply to how to landscape in the summertime. If you want your landscape to flourish and bloom, you need to understand what there is to do and not to do.

DON’T let the pests infest your summer landscaping. Chores may not be fun, but they ensure everything is kept at tip-top shape and thriving. Avoiding potential or living pests in your yard is more of a threat to your summer landscaping than you may realize. Pesty lawn critters can kill all the time you invested in and can prevent progress by causing brown spots in your yard. Talk with your local lawn experts about your options for preventing pests for your yard.

Don’t neglect to water your landscaping, especially if it is freshly planted. Just like how your body needs water to survive, your lawn needs to stay hydrated to thrive. Avoid watering at the hottest parts of the day, but also avoid waiting until nighttime. You don’t want the water to evaporate before proper hydration, but you also don’t want it to sit and make your yard soggy. It’s about balance.

Invest Your Time to Reep the Benefits- What You Should Do.

If you understand what not to do, you already have an idea of what you should do. However, we have additional tips for keeping your summer landscape at its best.

Mow correctly. This means you shouldn’t scalp your grass. You may be tempted, as the summer heat makes wanting to avoid this task all too relevant. Unfortunately, this may risk the deteriorating health of your hard.

Your summer landscape doesn’t just involve your lawn. It is important to dedicate some extra TLC (tender love and care) to your potted plants and herbs. It is important to keep your potted landscape well-watered and in the proper sun/shade ratio. Your local florist or lawn care professional will be able to help give you the pertinent information for your area.

Stay on top of weeds and other unwanted guests in your summer landscape. Weeds aren’t just an eyesore on your summer landscape; they also steal nutrients from your grass. To control weeds in the summertime, it is all about the preemergent you put down in the spring. This can be used a couple of times a year, depending on your need. It helps prevent the germination of weeds’ seeds in your landscape.

Plants That Thrive During the Summertime.

It varies depending on the area in which you are located, but there are some go-to plants to keep in mind for the summertime.

One of the plusses of the season is the ability to enjoy nature and all it offers us. It is about taking in the sun and kicking back with loved ones in nature. Outdoor activities are a must. It is ideal to have a yard you are proud of in the summertime. It should be an inviting place.

If you are a Florida native or live in another toasty, hot environment, the crape myrtle will survive and radiate in the summertime, but if you are a northern native, don’t expect it to make it through winter.

A foliage favorite by florists and customers alike, the eucalyptus is a crowd-pleaser. It continues to grow through heat and drought. It can grow as much as 6 feet a year, and it has fragrant leaves that can be trimmed and brought in to enjoy inside.

It’s a site of frost in the summer, or so it appears. Dusty miller provides a unique style that is perfect for the border of a home. As another popular foliage, the dusty miller is an attractive contrast to more colorful blooms. This frosty-looking foliage requires minimal care, accepts most soils and will complement your flowers in your summer landscape.

Summer Flowers to Keep in Mind.

Add some tropical flavor to your summer landscape with the hibiscus. It is loved for its large blooms that boast its beauty. Dictate where your hibiscus lives as the seasons change by planting it in a pot. This will help you enjoy the bold blooms all year. This character bloom requires at least six hours of sunlight a day, and it is known to bloom for years with little attention.

If you are all about the bold hues of summertime, the multicolored blooms sported by the lantana may be the flower of choice for you and your summer landscape. They love the sun, flower all season long and require little maintenance to stay vibrant. They are flashy enough to attract butterflies and hummingbirds and create a stunning display for a home’s landscape.

They live to face the sun and are proudly adopted as the favorite flower by people everywhere. The sunflower is a summer staple, and rightfully so, as they become more beautiful and more prominent in the peak of heat and sunlight. Once the blossom opens, it faces east. This is important to keep in mind when planting to get the desired aesthetic with your summer landscape.

There is a lot to learn when it comes to how to landscape for the summer, but that shouldn’t stop you. It is the season to see the fruit of our labor, the many joys of nature and to relish in the moments the season offers us.

There is so much that can be done to a home’s exterior to truly embrace all the beauty of the summer season. A fresh new paint color, a color blocking focus or an overall landscape makeover to name a few. What are you looking to do with your yard this summer? Our team at Atmore Flower Shop serving Atmore, AL,would love to help you!

Fourth of July Craft Party

The Fourth of July may be entwined with thoughts of summer, grilling and fireworks, but the celebration itself has much more meaning. This year is a chance to capture that meaning with some fun, Independence-Day inspired activities.

The Fourth of July, Independence Day and July Fourth are all names for the day we celebrate an intense moment in our nation’s history. It dates back to 1776 when the delegates from the thirteen colonies adopted the historic document, the Declaration of Independence, in a move to establish their own government separate from Great Britain.

In that summer of 1776, the colonists held mock funerals for the king, and anytime the Declaration of Independence was read publicly, it was accompanied by festivities like concerts, bonfires, parades and the firing of cannons and muskets. Sounds like a good time, right?

At least nowadays, we don’t need mock funerals of monarchies that are in control. However, the pandemic that the world recently experienced has led to changes in the way we celebrate. As a result, this Fourth of July might not involve the large crowds and gatherings that sometimes coincide with this holiday.

Change doesn’t have to be bad, though. It is important to be adaptable and make the best of things. If you change how you celebrate, you may find it is more fun to get together with a small group of close family and friends versus a crowd of strangers.

So why not gather and make something to commemorate this special day? We have some easy Fourth of July crafts and activities to make your Independence Day gathering even more fun and meaningful. You might even start a whole new tradition for this holiday.

These crafts and activities are fun for adults and children. Take a look at these activities and decide which of these crafts jive, so you can get all the necessary supplies to make the Fourth of July come alive!

Rocket Launchers

For a fun experiment that is quick and easy enough for kids, you can create rocket launchers with cups and rubber bands.

Place two rubber bands lengthwise, crossing one another across the cup opening. Place a third rubber band around the cup, to secure the two rubber bands in place. This creation is the “rocket.” Place a second cup upside down on a flat surface. Put the “rocket” over the second cup. Holding the lip of the rocket cup, pull down and release to launch your rocket.

You can make several of these and compete once you launch to see whose rocket goes the furthest. This is a safe way to launch something into the air.

Patriotic Bracelets or Necklaces

What could be better than creating a piece of patriotic, decorative jewelry for the holiday? With the simple materials of string or thin yarn, scissors, scotch tape, blue pony beads and red straws, you can make a cute necklace or bracelet.

Start by cutting the straws into one-inch pieces and set them up with some of the blue pony beads. Cut the string the appropriate length for either a necklace or a bracelet, leaving a little extra for tying the ends together.

Tie a pony bead to one end to prevent the other straws and beads from slipping off, and on the other end, wrap the scotch tape to keep the string or yarn together and make it easier to bead.

Arrange the beads and straws by simply sliding them on the string in any pattern. Tie the ends once the creation is complete. Cut off the ends with the pony bead, tape and discard. Everyone can show off their patriotic designs.

Flowers for the Fourth

There are many beautiful flower arrangements featuring red, white and blue flowers for the Fourth of July. Flower arrangements are a great way to decorate for the occasion. In keeping with the spirit of this year’s Fourth of July crafts, you can also incorporate these fresh-cut flowers into a craft for your guests.

During the party, have guests decorate mason jars with stars, sequins, glitter, paint and watered-down glue. Once the party is over, let your guests take the fresh-cut flowers from arrangements home in the mason jars they decorated. Guests are certain to remember this activity and surprise party favor fondly.

If you think you would like to add some patriotic arrangements to your Fourth of July gathering, contact our florists at Atmore Flower Shop in Atmore, AL, .

Firecracker Noisemakers

Let’s make some noise! That phrase should ignite some excitement. We can tell you how to make even more noise.

All you need is a hammer, a nail, metal cans, metal lids from glass jars or bottles, string or twine and either patriotic paper or a patriotic scene drawn or painted on some paper and tape.

With the hammer and nail, punch a hole through the top center of the metal can and metal jar lid. Thread both ends of twine or string through the hole in the can. Tie the string ends to the metal lid. This creates the ringer. Then knot the string a few inches above the lid to keep it hanging inside the can.

Tie another knot outside the can to keep the string from getting pulled all the way through. Make a third knot at the top end of the twine to create the handle for the bell. Finish your firecracker noisemaker by taping patriotic or decorated paper around the can.

Patriotic Tie-Dye Shirts

Summer is the best time for tie-dye. It can be quite messy, so it is best done outside with some garbage bags or plastic sheeting underneath where you plan to have your workspace. If you want to have your guests all participate, either have them bring a plain white shirt or order some cheap white shirts in approximated sizes for guests who want to participate.

There are tie-dye kits available, or you can make your own. Choose pre-washed, 100 percent cotton shirts, and if you soak the shirt for several minutes in soda ash (sodium carbonate) mixed with warm water, the color will absorb better.

Begin by gathering in a diagonal from the edge you want to start on. You can start at the shoulder or the bottom corner. Zip-tie the first tie about 4 inches or so from the shoulder or bottom edge then every two inches until the end.

The big section by the shoulder/collar is blue. Then alternate red and leave white for the rest of the sections. Wear gloves. Work over the plastic on a drying rack. Gently squeeze out the dye in each zip-tied section of the shirt.

Using the baking rack will keep the dye from puddling and running together underneath. Wrap your creation in a grocery bag and place it in a warm area for 6-8 hours. Next, remove the shirt from the bag and rinse out with warm water. Rinse, ring, rinse, ring, rinse and ring. Clip off the zip-ties carefully. Rinse and ring until the water runs clear. Throw the shirt in the washing machine with your preferred cleaner. Dry it in the sun or the dryer, and it is ready to wear.

For a much faster alternative, consider tie-dyeing your shirt using watered down acrylic paint. The shirt will need to dry, but once you heat-set it by tossing it into the drier, it will be ready to wear. This method is similar to the traditional tie-dying method, but it does not require hot water or as much preparation as the above, traditional method. This quick method can be accomplished in a much shorter amount of time.

Patriotic Flag Shirts

Another way to take a white shirt and make it a patriotic masterpiece is easily attained with white shirts, blue and red fabric paint, a paint sponge or brush, freezer paper, cardboard and an iron.

Cut out stripes and stars from the freezer paper. Freezer paper is plastic coated on one side, which allows it to stick to fabric if heated with an iron. Iron the freezer paper stars and stripes on the shirt. Insert cardboard inside the shirt, so the paint won’t bleed through. Use the fabric paint to color the shirt. Let it dry, and once it is dry, let your patriotic flag fly!

Patriotic Neighborhood Parade

Once you have finished your Fourth of July activities, a great way to conclude an awesome day is with a parade. Granted, we may all still need to keep some distance, but if we spread out, we can still have a parade with bicycles, wagons, golf carts and whatever else you may have to decorate.

Don’t forget that you will be decked out, too. What better way to show it off than in an impromptu parade?

Without the Declaration of Independence, our country might be completely different. It is worth celebrating our independence and the bravery that lead to it this Fourth of July. Even if celebrations are a little different, the meaning behind them is what counts!

Easy-to-Care-For Plants and Flowers

With more and more attention given to the positive effect nature can have on our physical and mental well-being, it makes sense to try to find a way to incorporate more nature into our environments both at work and at home.

If you are thinking of going green but worried you don’t have a green thumb, let us help you get started. Like learning to dance, sometimes you just need to find the right partner, or, in this case, flower, tree, grass or plant.

Whether you want happy houseplants and fabulous flowers, easy edible plants or a landscape with longevity, we have some advice that should suffice to make gardening nice.

Happy Houseplants and Fabulous Flowers

Researchers at Stanford conducted a study comparing the effects of urban versus natural settings. In the study, participants were split into two groups that each walked in the two separate natural and urban settings. Physiological effects were the same for both groups. However, researchers discovered startling differences in brain activity according to setting.

Those walking in nature had markedly reduced brain activity in the area of the brain associated with “repetitive thought focused on negative emotions.”

Lead author of the study, Gregory Bratman, a graduate student in Stanford’s Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources, the Stanford Psychophysiology Lab and the Center for Conservation Biology, said, “This finding is exciting because it demonstrates the impact of nature experience on an aspect of emotion regulation – something that may help explain how nature makes us feel better.”

The positive effect extends to freshly cut flowers and bouquets. In a 2005 study, women who received flowers enjoyed better moods that lasted several days. Similarly, elderly patients who received flowers experienced better moods and improved memory.

For some easy, indoor options, the peace lily, snake plant, African violets, jade plant and begonias are easy as can be to grow indoors.

Peace Lily

These gorgeous plants have elegant white flowers that stand out against dark green leaves. They make wonderful gifts as they are easy to grow indoors. Keep soil moist but do not overwater. Although they are a tropical plant and like warmer temperatures, keep them out of the direct afternoon sunlight. Peace lilies do like a bright, well-lit area.

With the proper care, a peace lily can bloom off and on most of the year. Peace lilies got that name because their white flowers reaching above the green leaves looked like little white flags of peace. Bring some peace into your home and cleanse the air of toxins with the peace lily plant.

Snake Plant

The snake plant is a hardy succulent that can grow in most conditions. It can handle low light but thrives in brighter light. It can survive droughts and is very resistant to pests. Let this plant dry out between watering and use free-draining soil.

Like the peace lily, these plants also cleanse the air of toxins and can thrive without much attention. These are also easily propagated, so with proper care, you can have a house full of these fresh, clean-looking plants.

African Violets

These plants, with their lovely flowers in shades of purple, white and red, are a popular choice as they bloom all year. They do not require much, but they seem to do best in a pot with a water reservoir.

African violets like bright, indirect light. When you water them, make sure to avoid getting cold water on the leaves to avoid them spotting, browning or even possibly dying. These pretty flowering-plants will be a beautiful accessory to brighten your space and your mood.

Easy Edible Plants

To take the positive effects of nature and plants even further, why not consider gardening? The act of gardening gets us more active and can help alleviate depression by releasing feel-good chemicals like serotonin and dopamine in the brain. In fact, a May 2007 study published in Science Direct, Volume 146, Issue 2, found that soil has a bacterium called mycobacterium vaccae that triggers the release of serotonin. If you want anxiety to be foiled, toil in the soil!

Another positive aspect of gardening is that you can grow your own healthy food that is free of dangerous pesticides. This can also be a great incentive for healthy eating. Some extremely easy options are zucchini, mint and chard, but the options are endless once you get the hang of gardening.

Zucchini Squash

Zucchini squash yield a lot of food in a short amount of time. They love sun and light and grow quite large. To harvest, cut the fruit when they are six to eight inches long. If allowed to grow larger than that, they become less flavorful. The flowers of this plant are also a pretty and edible addition to a salad.

Mint

When it comes to growing, mint will take off in a sprint. It grows like a weed in soil. Mint is so easy to grow, even in harsh conditions, that it will sometimes take over the garden. You can pick it bare, and it will still grow back.

To prevent spread, you can contain the plants in planters or grow it in a tower garden. However, if it does spread, this wonderful plant does repel mosquitos, spiders, fleas and ants.

Chard

Looking for gardening that isn’t too hard? Look no further than chard. Of the greens, chard is the easiest to grow. It can be grown any time of the year indoors or outside in the garden. This plant has leaves that are similar to spinach and thick stalks. It is rich in vitamins A, C and K and can be used in many dishes.

Although it may be less well-known than other greens typically grown, don’t discard the chard!

Landscape with Longevity

A study published in the American Journal of Public Health examined the impact of green settings on children diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. This study found that activities in natural settings reduced symptoms when compared to activities in more urban, indoor settings.

Indian Hawthorn

A low-growing, evergreen shrub- Indian Hawthorn doesn’t require pruning to keep its figure. It is not a fussy shrub and can tolerate most types of soil and moderate drought. It’s delicate, charming flowers are seen in spring, but the rest of the year, this shrub produces dark berries that will be enjoyed by birds and wildlife. This easy, landscaping plant will not only add beauty to your yard. It will also add interest in the form of visiting wildlife!

Coreopsis

The daisy-like flowers of the coreopsis plant are guaranteed to bring some sunshine to your outdoor space. These bright, smiling plants are low-maintenance, drought-tolerant and will attract birds, bees and beautiful butterflies! These plants are not choosy about soil-type, and the cut flowers can decorate your home.

Ribbon Grass

Do you have a spot where nothing will grow? If so, you might want to consider ribbon grass. Ribbon grass is an ornamental grass that can be used as a groundcover or to prevent erosion. It must be mentioned that this grass is so apt to grow and spread wildly that it is banned in some states. Best used only in difficult growing conditions, but its bullying nature can be made afraid when faced with shade.

These are just some of the options for an easy introduction to plants, flowers, grasses, trees and everything in between. If you would prefer to choose a plant that is already growing, we have some options and would be happy to help you select a plant or two to live with you.

Flowers are another option for enjoying increased productivity and happier moods. Our florists at Atmore Flower Shop serving Atmore, AL, are always glad to accompany someone on a journey to discover how to incorporate the beauty of nature into a home or workplace.

How to Celebrate an “Untraditional” Graduation

We are all feeling it, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. It has impacted jobs, the economy, mental health and the overall function of a person’s day-to-day life. As stressful as these times are for us adults, it is important to consider the impact it is having on our younger generations.

While recent circumstances are impacting everyone differently, it is important to consider their feelings. Many of their remaining childhood milestones are being robbed from them- one by one. These milestones include sports’ seasons, proms and the biggest one… graduation.

Although unprecedented, it is important for us to not take these canceled gatherings lightly. Our seniors deserve to be celebrated, and we are here to help, even if it is “untraditional.”

Canceled Celebrations: Your Options

It is hard to stay optimistic about graduation when the ability to have one is up in the air. Forget all the memorable moments leading up to it like prom and grad bash. Seniors everywhere are a bit disheartened and rightfully so. This is supposed to be a time for making memories and cherishing their remaining nostalgic moments before making major life decisions.

Graduation celebrations are going to look different globally. Whether your senior’s graduation celebration is standing strong, rescheduled or homemade, they are no less necessary for the senior. The last few months have been disappointing enough for all of us.

If your graduation is postponed, hold a family dinner with the senior’s favorite foods and having a small “graduation” dinner to recognize their achievements. Obviously, it is not the graduation celebration that was anticipated, but it can fill as a placeholder and may even open the door to important conversations about the future and what is going to follow school.

If your senior’s graduation is still a-go, you best go big or go home. This has not been the ideal start of a year for anyone, let alone the end of a milestone. Now is the time to utilize this extra time together to talk through those important conversations.

Delayed Graduation Ceremonies

The anticipation has been squandered for many as graduation ceremonies have been pushed back, delayed or canceled altogether. You don’t have to give up all the fun of planning, prepping and celebrating.

You can buy graduation décor, have a pop-up photoshoot near your home and celebrate in little ways as much as you can. Although nothing about this time has been ideal for our high school seniors, their senior year needs not to be wasted.

When it comes to delayed graduation ceremonies, keep your mentality steadfast. Plan and prepare the same but feel relieved to know you have some padded time to get ready. Just like how every senior is different, their celebration should be too.

Is your senior graduating high school or college? This could change things up. These are two very different transitions in life. One bridges the gap from total dependence to a taste of independence, responsibility and a long-lasting commitment to a degree that may or may not stick with your senior when it is all said and done.

What You can do to Make Senior Year Special

Your options are limited, but that shouldn’t stop you from celebrating your senior. Although they can’t participate in some of the big events of their senior year, there are still things that can be done for them to look forward to.

Surprise them sporadically with some of their favorite things. Maybe that is a day surrounded by movies and popcorn, taco night over Zoom with their best friends or having some gifts delivered that they can utilize in both quarantined life and life after they graduate. Perhaps everything they need to make their favorite cold brew will suffice.

Grad bash may not be a thing for the class of 2020, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start mapping out a trip post quarantine. Odds are their ceremony got pushed into the summertime, so although delayed, they can still enjoy a last hurrah before this next step in life.

Plan a trip ahead but buy that travel insurance; If you are concerned for health reasons or don’t want to risk canceling that too, you can always get social with virtual celebrations.

A Virtual Celebration

A fun way to celebrate our seniors when graduation parties are put on the back burner is the “Adopt a Senior” campaign. Graduation parties haven’t been much of an option for the class of 2020, but that isn’t stopping people from celebrating grads in a fun way.

The “Adopt a Senior” craze is allowing people to stay socially distant while still showing seniors they care. Schools are creating groups on Facebook that are set aside specifically for their graduating class. Parents, loved ones or the graduate themselves post a small bio along with their photo with the words “not adopted” plastered on the top of the post. Anyone who feels led to “adopt” the senior or multiple seniors to surprise them in fun ways comments on the post.

The owner of the post changes “not adopted” to “adopted” and connects with the now adopted senior to learn about some of their favorite things. Many seniors create an Amazon Wishlist that allows all those participating to purchase gifts sent directly to the graduate.

This is a fun and special way for an “untraditional” graduating class to embrace their unique situation in a fun and creative way. This is a beautiful milestone in a young person’s life, and it deserves recognition.

Our florists at ATMORE FLOWER SHOP in ATMORE, AL, are here to make every milestone special. We pride ourselves on bridging the distance by sharing the beautiful gift of flowers with our same-day flower delivery. Provoke a smile and celebrate both big and small milestones. Although this year’s graduation celebrations are “untraditional” to say the least, they are no less important.< /p>

Let us help you recognize every milestone in any season with a beautiful representation of life.

How to Choose the Right Plants for Your Home

With the many options for interior design and décor, it can be difficult to know where to begin when it comes to making your space your own. Cost is a factor, and if you rent, your options may be limited. Home is where the heart is, but how do you make your place feel more like home?

It is no surprise that houseplants are having a moment. Millennials and the other younger generations are going green and reviving the plant industry by making humble houseplants trendy. According to the National Gardening Association, the influence of Millennials and Gen Z caused sales of plants in the U.S. to increase by almost 50 percent to a staggering $1.7 billion.

Many of these houseplant enthusiasts enjoy showcasing their green thumbs on Instagram, and once you take a look, the appeal of plants is impossible to deny. Plants add beauty and interest to any space, and that is just scratching the surface.

Plants cleanse the air, produce oxygen and lift mood. If you are happy and you know it, most likely you have plants or spend time outdoors. In fact, caring for plants can be meditative and relaxing, provided you get the right plant for your home and habits.

Plant Pitfalls

Some of us have experienced the disappointment of a plant that dies on our watch. Sometimes it feels like neglect. You wonder when you watered it last or if you watered it too much. Other times, it might have had too much or too little light.

Since plants are alive, the death of a plant can be extremely disappointing. You may have even felt guilty if your plant failed to thrive. However, the problem is typically a result of the right plant in the wrong place or vice versa.

Just like their outdoor counterparts, indoor plants can be plagued by pests. Common pests include aphids, mealybugs and mites. The best prevention is to check plants before you bring them inside for webbing, tiny green bodies on the undersides of leaves and a white cottony appearance on leaves.

Does this all sound complicated- light, direction, pests and pets? Don’t worry. We will help you figure out how to pick the right plant to cherish instead of having it perish.

Questions That Need Answers

How Much Time Can You Commit?

Even though plants aren’t the same level of commitment as a pet, plants do have needs. Before you even start perusing pics of plants and imagining them brightening up your home, ask yourself an honest question. How much time are you willing and able to commit to your plant?

If your answer is not much, that’s okay! That doesn’t put you in a plant predicament; it just means you need to consider that when choosing your plant friend. Likewise, if you want to nurture your plant, you need to choose a plant that will flourish with extra attention.

How Much Light Do You Have?

The other questions pertain to your home environment. Let there be light because all plants need some light, but how much? Different plants have different light needs, and some can adapt and survive in dark places where there is only ambient or fluorescent light.

We can obviously look and see light, but how do we know how much light we have? Good news, there is a device that will take the guesswork out of determining your light situation. A light meter can be a wonderful tool for a plant enthusiast, and many inexpensive light meters are available for purchase online.

Once you measure the light with your light meter. The unit will be measured in “footcandles” or fc. Bright light is 400 to 800 fcs. Medium light is 250 to 400 fcs. Low light is 50 to 250 fcs. These light measurements will help you select the right plant for your place.

What Direction Does Your Compass Show?

Another consideration regarding light has to do with direction. If you don’t know north, south, east and west, grab a compass and prepare to learn about the windows in your home and where the light falls. Many phones have a compass built in.

Most houseplants do best when placed near eastern or western facing windows for indirect sunlight for a good portion of the day and ambient light for the remainder. Southern light is the strongest, and for sun-loving plants like aloe that’s where they want to be.

Most plants will get scorched if you place them where the sunlight hits them directly. Many plants that get scorched have leaves touching the windowpane.

Signs that your plant may be perishing due to excess sunlight are wilting, foliage curling down, yellowing, stunted growth and telltale brown, pale or translucent spots on the side of the plant the sun hits directly. If you notice any of that happening, move that plant and get it out of the way of the sun’s bright rays.

Do You Have Children and/or Pets?

The perfect plant must be safe for everyone in the home. If you have children and/or pets, you don’t want to worry about harm coming to them from ingesting part of your plant. It might sound crazy, but kids and pets are known to make poor choices when it comes to what they may decide to taste.

It is better to be safe than sorry, so always check to see if a plant is toxic to kids and animals. If it is, don’t take a chance; choose a different plant.

Survivors

Like the famous song says, “I will survive,” and these plants can almost take whatever gets dished out by you or the universe. Golden pothos is one such plant. This plant does best in indirect, medium sunlight, but it can also thrive in minimal light in unexpected places like bathrooms.

These golden pothos plants can survive in many environments and can withstand neglect. They rarely experience root rot and cleanse the air of toxins. However, they possess toxins of their own that can harm curious children and pets if ingested.

For a non-toxic plant that can also handle a variety of light, soil, moisture and other environmental conditions, the buxom spider plant looks cool and thrives without threatening kids or pets.

If you feel like you might neglect a plant, the snake plant has a reputation for being impossible to kill. It thrives in bright light but can also do well in shade. It is mildly toxic to pets but unlikely to do much more than cause gastrointestinal discomfort.

For those of us who are looking for a pet-safe, easy-care plant but are a bit forgetful, peperomia come in a variety of colors and can withstand going without water. They can also be displayed in hanging pots, which is so chic!

Sun Worshippers

Like the aforementioned aloe plant, succulents need sun. Hens-and-Chicks are succulents that are available in many varieties and colors. They love bright light. Best of all, they are easy to propagate, so you could move the chicks to new pots. You could have a house full of these pretty plants if you don’t overwater. Allow them to dry slightly between watering.

Another sun-worshipping plant to consider placing in a south-facing window with plenty of sun is the popular jade plant. The jade plant isn’t a cactus, but it is a succulent because it is drought resistant. It can live for decades if it gets four hours of sunlight a day. Buy a heavy pot, so the slow growth doesn’t make it topple.

If you are lucky enough to have six hours of direct light in your home, pretty jasmine can add layers of beauty with its delicate white flowers and intoxicating scent. However, make sure you remember to water it. The soil should be kept moist and never dry out completely. True jasmine is not toxic to pets, but make sure you check the scientific name as some varieties that are also called Jasmine are toxic.

Safety Dance Plants

For homes with children and pets, plants need to be completely safe. Plants are supposed to add beauty and not danger to your home. It is important to check on the safety of a plant because many plants are toxic if ingested.

Have no fear, we have selected some safe plants to suggest. Bird’s nest ferns are not poisonous to dogs, cats or humans and can handle low light. Even better, these plants can grow on lots of things in nature, so you can get creative with how they are displayed in your home. Make sure you water these plants weekly.

A legend among houseplants for its ability to survive the worst care, the parlor palm is also not harmful to people or pets if ingested. Another perk is that it can tolerate low light, indoor conditions including drought, and it can grow to be six feet. The best perk is that this hardy palm is also an excellent air purifier.

For an easy-to-care-for, pet-friendly plant, the money tree won’t hold it against you if you accidentally ignore it for a bit. It will bounce back and won’t take it out on you, your kids or your pets.

The greatest news of all for pet parents is that all air plants are safe for kids and pets. They also don’t need to be rooted in soil, so the sky’s the limit as far as your creativity with air plants is concerned.

These are just some of the options to help you on your quest for adding plants to your home. However, you may find that you prefer to switch things up regularly. That shouldn’t mean that you have to be without flowers or plants.

If you would like to add flowers or plants to your home but don’t know where to begin, our florists at ATMORE FLOWER SHOP in ATMORE, AL, can create arrangements or choose plants to help you add color to your life and make your home your own.

Mother’s Day for Pet Moms

A mother is not defined by the act of birth. Instead, a mother is defined by her actions. A mother gives love and provides shelter, safety and care. This is a natural instinct that brings out the best in us. For some, this relationship occurs with a child, but for others, the relationship is with a beloved animal.

There are all kinds of mothers, and Mother’s Day should not exclude any of the moms out there. Every mother deserves to be thought of and pampered on this special day.

This Mother’s Day, don’t forget there are all kinds of mothers, including those who are a mom to a pet. If you are wondering what to get her, don’t fret! We have many ideas for the mom who loves her pet.

Clothing

The world online is full of options to celebrate every type of pet imaginable. Choose socks with her pet’s face on them or a customizable t-shirt. There are also leggings with different types of pets for the pet mom who likes to be comfortable.

Jewelry

When it comes to jewelry, one of the most popular options has always been friendship jewelry, specifically matching necklaces. Now, that can also apply to certain pets. There are friendship collars that come with matching bracelets for the pet mom. Note that not all pets wear collars. When in doubt, ask someone knowledgeable about what works for the type of animal.

There are many options for jewelry with different animal charms. Online retailers can even make custom charms from a photograph in different finishes. These gifts are relatively inexpensive but will mean a lot to the pet mom.

Bags and Accessories

Some pet moms like to go out and about with their babies. If the pet mom you want to surprise likes to go for walks, consider getting her a cute bag for outings. Choose a bag that is large enough to fit her essentials yet small enough to not cause a hassle. A bag with a spot for a water bottle is nice because pet moms like being able to carry water for her pet babies.

Another idea for a pet mom bag includes those moms of larger pets. Instead of a bag for mom, why not a bag for the pet to carry? Many dogs are working dogs. They may even love a challenge. If the pet mom you want to celebrate has a high energy dog, a backpack can be a great accessory to help burn off some of that excess energy.

Artwork

Pet artwork and portraits are easy Mother’s Day gifts for the pet mom who shares photos of her little one on social media. Choose a pic you know she loves and select the type of art. From realistic portraits to more abstract or whimsical prints, a picture is worth a thousand words.

For the pet mom who likes to snuggle with her little one, consider a pet portrait pillow. There are also pet portrait blankets. Another idea that is an adorable gift is a t-shirt with the pet’s picture on it that comes with a matching shirt for the pet with the mom’s picture on it. It’s ideal for the social media-obsessed pet mom for Mother’s Day.

The great thing about artwork is it works for any animal. Know a pet mom with a small, delicate or more exotic pet? Celebrate how unique her pet is with a beautiful portrait.

Flowers

Like any other mom on Mother’s Day, pet moms appreciate being acknowledged and appreciated. Flowers have always been a tradition for moms, so it makes sense that flowers would also be an appealing Mother’s Day gift for the pet moms out there.

If you want to send the pet mom in your life some love on Mother’s Day, our florists at Atmore Flower Shop in Atmore, AL, would be glad to create an arrangement to celebrate the love she shares with her pet.

Items for her Pet

Useful items for her pet make thoughtful Mother’s Day gifts for the pet mom in your life. Depending on what kind of animal her pet is, there are all kinds of items she might enjoy. There are toys and bowls. For some pets, there are clothes, leashes, collars, nail trimmers, beds and treats. For other pets, there may be perches, special lighting, shelves, hiding logs, tubes, balls and various other furnishings.

If you want to get a little more unexpected with your gift, there are pet activity trackers that work the same way their human counterparts work. Pet mom can keep up with her pet’s activity level and make sure her baby is getting enough exercise.

If her pet lives to eat, there are special slow down bowls that make meals more of a hunt for dogs and cats.

There are GPS tracking collars that can also monitor the pet’s temperature and cameras that can let pet mom dole out treats and talk to her baby while she is away. Technology has led to the creation of toys that encourage the pet to play while she is away that connects to a smartphone.

The best gifts communicate that you really know the recipient, so choose a gift that coincides with the pet mom’s relationship with her pet. She will appreciate the thought you put into the gift, and it will make her feel good to know that you care enough to celebrate her life as a pet mom.

Pets are family, and pet mothers deserve to be celebrated for the love they share. With more and more households viewing pets as members of the family, Mother’s Day is expanding to include pet moms. Don’t let this Mother’s Day go by without brightening the day of a special pet mom in your life.

Spring’s TOP Bulb Flowers

Spring is the time for beautiful weather, colorful shades of beautiful décor, a clean atmosphere and an array of beautiful bulb flowers. As we anxiously await these seasonal buds’ arrival, it is best to know the facts backing them.

What is a Bulb Flower?

Let’s get to the root of the facts. Bulb flowers are a spring staple. One of the best ways to describe a bulb flower is as “a promise for a plant to come.” Bulbs are just a term for a plant that grows underground in a mass of storage tissue.

Scales made up of carbohydrates hold the premature plant inside, nourishing it before it becomes the budding beauty that we all know and love. Some of the most popular bulb flowers include two easily recognized spring staples, tulips and daffodils.

Why are Bulb Flowers Prominent in the Spring?

Bulb flowers are known to be prominent in the springtime, and many of the world’s most popular flowers are bulbs. Bulbs are spring staples because of when they are planted and when they blossom. Bulbs are planted in autumn, so they can bud in spring. They are stubborn flowers that refuse to bud without their winter’s sleep. Bulbs need their beauty sleep.

Scientifically, bulb flowers are prominent in spring because that is when they are well-rested and ready to make their grand entrance, so all can admire them. In a deeper sense, it only seems appropriate considering spring is the budding season for the entire year. It’s the season of new beginnings and the time we put to better our lives is ready to blossom.

Spring’s TOP Bulb Flowers

If you have ever admired a vase of tulips or took a second look at an assortment of daffodils, you understand why these flowers are among the top bulb flowers for the spring.

Additional bulb flowers that are easily recognized by many are several varieties of irises, buttercups, freesias, some lilies and hyacinth. All these brilliant florals are present in springtime. They are found in fields, in stylistic choices for the home, in clothing attire and are given as a gesture of love and friendship.

The most popular bulb, the tulip, is related to another popular spring flower, the lily. The tulip comes in almost every variety of cup-shaped petals except true blue. It can be found in a purplish-blue, though, so there is a tulip for practically everyone.

Where to Utilize Bulb Flowers in Your Life

With these florals being such iconic symbols of renewal and natural mood boosters, they are ideal to add to your home’s décor all spring long. They are a great finishing touch to spring cleaning and are equally beautiful to send as a sweet gift to the people you care about the most this spring.

In fact, the bulb flower’s meaning of renewal isn’t just symbolic. If you dig up a tulip bulb midsummer, you won’t find the bulb you planted the past year. It would be that bulb’s daughter. Even in the blossoming process, the bulb is dividing for its next generation.

With spring being the season that houses the celebration of mothers, consider sending some brilliant bulb flowers to your mother on Mother’s Day. The best bulb flowers to send for Mother’s Day are undeniably tulips.

Could it be their soft yet vibrant colors? Maybe it is their seasonal attraction. They are in peak season after all. What is it about their beauty and spring-like association that makes them so desirable? Regardless, sending mom a bouquet of fresh tulips for Mother’s Day is a sure-fire win.

Spring is the season for change. It is a promise for new life. It is the breath of fresh air that offers warmth after the chilly winter months. Bulb flowers are natural representations of that. These symbols of spring are appreciated both indoor and out and are simply beautiful.

Things You Might Not Know About Tulips

You have options when it comes to choosing your tulips this spring. They are divided into around 150 species and around 3,000 naturally and genetically cultivated varieties worldwide. However, that popular bulb flower, the tulip, carries a much deeper symbolism than many realize.

Like many flowers, their bold-colored and symmetrical stems are edible! In fact, during World War II, tulip bread was eaten by the people who couldn’t afford other options. They can replace onions in recipes and may even be used in wines.

Our florists at Atmore Flower Shop in Atmore, AL, are here to help answer any questions you may have about bulb flowers. We are also able to help you share their beauty, representation of renewal and spring symbolism with our same-day flower delivery to the people you love.

Share the beauty of flowers in this rejuvenating season, even when circumstances that surround us may not feel cooperative. Flowers are a connecting element for us all. They are a transitioning factor that connects nature with people. They not only connect us with nature. They also allow us to connect with one another.

With that in mind, let bulb flowers send words of encouragement, convey love and reflect new beginnings when it is needed most.

Keep calm and stress less with bulb flowers this spring!

Easter Baskets for Teenagers

Parents, it’s time to spring into action. We all know the Easter bunny brings treats to the kiddos around the world, but when it comes to our older children, some say they are best left out of the juvenile Easter traditions.

Yes, Easter is around the corner. Remember, it is no bunny’s business whether your family does Easter baskets for your teenagers or not, but if you do, boy do we have the teenage Easter basket inspiration for you.

It’s a one-sided conversation for many. What is it that you should buy your teenager for Easter?

What are the best gifts for teenagers for Easter? Compiling treats for Easter baskets for teens can be a fun and creative experience. With teenage years coming and going swiftly and ups and downs coming so abruptly, it is best to celebrate our teens whenever we can.

An Easter Basket that is “Funny and Useful”

If you are a little salty about giving your teenager an Easter gift basket because you think they are too grown, avoid the sweets and have fun with the schemes. You’ll find it funny. They may not, but hey, they still get an Easter basket that they so persistently requested.

Play dirty with a cleaning supply Easter basket. You’ll need a laundry basket for the base. What goes inside is completely up to you. If you feel this approach is a little too harsh, consider having a secondary Easter basket on hand as a sweet incentive.

If your teenager loves makeup, use that as a source for inspiration. You know you’ll have to buy your teen more makeup soon anyway. Collect some of the essentials and assort them into a cute makeup carrying case. Throw in a couple of new items or a gift card if you are feeling extra generous.

The same applies to the sports-loving children of the world. If your teen needs a new baseball helmet, you can knock Easter out of the park. Make the helmet the base of a basket and add in some sunflower seeds, batting gloves, gum and some other must-haves to complete this homerun Easter look.

For the teens prepping for college, their ideal Easter basket is thrown together with ease. Collect some of their favorite junk foods, a few gift cards for groceries, for lunch and some comforting keepsakes for their dorm. A warm blanket, lotion, new socks and other simple tokens are bound to win them over and start gathering college supplies in the process.
