On a 2010 episode of Parks and Recreation, main character Leslie Knope rounded up her girls, took them out to lunch, gave them all gifts, and proclaimed it "Galentine's Day . . . only the best day of the year."
And that's how a holiday devoted entirely to celebrating the love women have for their mothers, sisters, daughters and girlfriends was born, and we here at Tobler's Flowers couldn't be happier about it. Valentine's Day absolutely has its place, but friendship and familial love deserve their day in the sun, too. Read More about Your Best Friends Deserve Flowers This Galentine’s Day
One of the best resolutions you can make at the New Year is to make someone else happy. We spend a lot of time setting intentions for ourselves, but it makes just as much sense for our overall happiness to think about how we could make someone else's life happier. We here at Tobler's Flowers have a wonderful way to do that, and it's called Flowers For A Year. Read More about Make 2018 The Year You Give Flowers All Month
During cold and flu season, it can sometimes feel like everyone around us is dropping like flies. One of the best ways to keep someone's spirits up if they have succumbed to the winter blues or worse is to send them flowers, which perk us up at the best of times, let alone the worst. For centuries, flowers have been cherished not just for their physical beauty, but for their curative powers.
Here at Tobler's Flowers, we offer a rich collection of bright, cheerful blooms that will put a smile on someone's face exactly when they need it most. Read More about Inspired Get Well Flowers
Winter is the perfect time to commit to an orchid, one of the most regal of all flowers. She may require more attention, but she's worth it, as one of the longest lasting flowers out there. She rewards those who take care of her with her unusual and distinctive beauty.
We at Toblers Flowers think the cold season is prime time to invite this loveliness into your home and feel certain that if you do, you won't regret it. Especially if you follow our advice for care. Read More about Gorgeous Blooms for Winter
We know it's a little early, but let's take a peek at 2018's flower landscape, shall we?
This is made easier by the fact that International Floral Distributors released its annual trend report recently. It identifies four major approaches to floral design that IFD sees as the future of floral work. We're focusing on one in this week's blog, something IFD calls "Incarnation of Earth's Elements." We know, it's a mouthful. But let us at Tobler's Flowers give you a lay of this land. Read More about Elemental Ideas For 2018’s Flowers

Secret Santa, the group gift swap so popular in the West, is a relatively new tradition. It began in the U.S. after a 20th century philanthropist set the standard, distributing $100 bills in the Kansas City streets. In reality, the idea has been around for a long time, imported from Scandinavia, where gift givers adopted the custom of knocking on their neighbors' doors, leaving a gift and vanishing before they could be identified.
For all of Secret Santa's fun, the randomly-assigned giftee scenario can be a challenge when picking out a gift. Fortunately, we at Toblers Flowers can help. Read More about A Delicious Secret Santa Gift
Giving Tuesday, which falls this year on November 28, is the perfect antidote to the spending we've done on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Sure, it too will have us reaching into our wallets, but to benefit the causes and programs nearest and dearest to our hearts.
This global initiative to promote charitable giving across the world is something that we at Toblers Flowers can really get behind. After all, we're in the business of helping people give, and we've got a year-round program that does just that. Read More about Joyful Giving Through Flowers

You may think that at Thanksgiving, it's the food that does the talking. There's your centerpiece dish - turkey, ham, barbecue ribs (no judgment here) - and then there are the satellite items everyone contributes: your aunt's delicious yams, your sister's perfect pecan pie. There's no question that food is a host's top consideration on Thanksgiving, but Toblers Flowers would like to issue this gentle PSA: it's all about the flowers.
Holiday centerpieces are bigger and better than ever, available in a range of seasonally-appropriate hues, full of texture but done with a modern twist. Look for interesting elements - feathers, grasses - and shapes to make a striking appearance this year. Read More about Statement Centerpieces for Thanksgiving
