Even though summer is coming to a close, we no longer need to feel the need to do away with white. This antiquated notion was once a very pragmatic rule. But in more recent years, it has actually become far more fashion-forward to break this rule and add white to your wardrobe or home. Try including a white wool throw blanket in your living room, or all white place settings at your next dinner party. Tobler’s Flowers invites you to choose from our white arrangements to lend a new essence of white to your favorite room, as well. Read More about Elegant All-White Flower Styles For Summer
Did you know the bee population is on the decline? Bees are dying out due to many environmental factors. Bees have played a vital role as pollinators of important crops, contributing to our world’s food sources. But now, bees are losing out and may eventually disappear. We can help on a local level simply by creating spaces in our yards that invite bees to work and live safely. Planting bright blooming flowers like sunflowers, daisies, marigolds, and hydrangea are a great way to encourage bee growth in your garden. Provide shade and some fresh water and watch bees become regular visitors. No garden to speak of? Tobler’s Flowers encourages you to use whatever outdoor space you have, like a porch, patio, or balcony, to display bee-friendly flowers for our small friends.

When it comes to the slide from spring into summer, it's a smooth one for florals. The two seasons share so many blooms in common, as if they conspired to make their half of the year the most dazzling, flower-wise. Toblers Flowers couldn't be more pleased with the fact that so many of spring's bloomers are also summer's, but we also recognize that it's easier to say goodbye to tulips when we have sunflowers waiting in the wings. We like to look ahead to see what summer designs will look like, even if the flowers feel familiar to us because we've been enjoying them since March. Read More about A Peek At Summer’s Flowers
Which one of us hasn't followed a butterfly as it flitted about a garden? There is something fascinating about this delicate creature that is seemingly arbitrary in where it lands, yet we know that it is actually on a search for the brightest flowers and sweetest nectar. Or perhaps we have stood transfixed watching the busy work of a honeybee, seemingly oblivious to us while going about its important task for the day. Both of these industrious insects are critical to our ecosystem, and our lives are more interconnected than most of us know. This summer, how about creating flower gardens to attract both bees and butterflies, and in doing so, making our world just a little better. Tobler's Flowers is here to provide the colorful flowers that bees and butterflies will love.
Won't I Get Stung? Experts tell us that honeybees hard at work almost never sting. The exception is if they are threatened, cornered, or harassed. Given their exceptionally important work - we rely on them for our world-wide food supply, after all - it is worth the effort to help them to thrive. Simply stand back and allow them to work without scaring them, and you shouldn't have any issues. Read More about Bees, Butterflies & Flower Gardens
What is your idea of the perfect summer get-together? Whether it involves a picnic at the park or a garden party in your backyard, flowers are perfect for any special occasion. They add summer color, ambiance, and style to any gathering, and no party at this time of year should be without them. To add elegance or whimsy, call Tobler's Flowers for the best collection of summer centerpieces and floral party decor for your table.
Keep Them Fresh! The summer sun can wilt flowers before your party is over - so be sure to add water, mist throughout the day, and keep in the shade whenever possible. If you aren't sure about the availability of shade cover, ask our floral experts about succulents or other hardy flowers that will withstand the heat.
