<![CDATA[Graci's Flowers & Gifts - News]]>Thu, 21 May 2020 16:00:02 -0400Weebly<![CDATA[Open Again!]]>Fri, 15 May 2020 02:48:04 GMThttp://gracisflowers.com/news/open-againAs of late last week, we are now open again to walk-in customers. However we are still providing curbside pick up, if you prefer. We ask that if you come in, you'd please wear a mask & be sure to follow social distancing guidelines.

If you'd like to pickup flowers, we recommend that you call ahead. At this time, the pandemic is still causing a lot of disruptions to our supply chain. We do not have as large a selection of flowers as we normally would, because the wholesalers have less available at the moment. As a result, we don't have as many ready-made bouquets in the cooler to "grab & go."

No Contact delivery policies are still in place, so please call to place orders, or order online from our website. Please be aware that all bouquets pictured on the website are subject to substitutions, since not all flowers are available at this time. If you have any questions, please call & we'll be glad to assist you.

We're sorry for any inconvenience, and we ask for your patience as we continue to try to work thru these less than ideal circumstances. Thank you.

<![CDATA[Plants Plants Revolution]]>Wed, 09 Jan 2019 03:22:36 GMThttp://gracisflowers.com/news/plant-plant-revolutionIt's a renaissance of plants! Maybe that's over stating it just a bit, but plants are more popular -  and selling faster - these days than they have in years. Due in part to a renewed interest in succulents and cacti, all plants seem to be in high demand. And just because it's winter, don't think you're out of luck! In fact, it may be the best time to bring home a new plant. Plants can actually help to clean the air in your home while you're cooped up in the cold weather.

We have a great selection of plants & planters in a variety of fun decorative containers, including simple wicker baskets, rustic wood or metal pots, and ceramic bowls in a host of shapes and colors. From small to large, we have an option for everyone.
Succulents are incredibly popular and very easy to care for, making them a great gift. Succulents and cacti come in all shapes and sizes, and make for fun & interesting designs with their contrasting types. The best possible advice for those looking to get started with succulents is to remember not to over water!
Blooming plants are always a great choice, with a little more color and vibrancy. European Gardens - a mixture of green plants & blooming plants planted together - are perennial best sellers, but individual plants are always a hit as well. Violets, Cyclamens, Orchids, Kalanchoes,  and even Peace Lilies are popular choices.
Not all plants are equally easy to care for, but even if you don't have a "green thumb" there's a plant out there for you! Send a plant as a gift, or take one home today to liven up your indoor space.
