Thanksgiving is almost here, and most likely you have plans by now. If they include being a guest at someone else’s home for the traditional Thanksgiving feast, you’re among the lucky ones who get to skip the meal prep and table setting. However, you’re not totally off the hook. Remember that as a guest, it’s important to bring a hostess gift when you arrive. The type of gift you bring depends on a lot of factors, like how well you know your host, what style of Thanksgiving dinner will be served, and what other guests will be there.

As August gives way to September, and communities across the country start to gear up for Fall, there's not much that makes it feel like Autumn here in Orange County. Baristas may be serving up pumpkin spice lattes and if we're lucky, we'll run into slightly less gridlock. But despite the fact that we won't be enjoying crisp fall weather and wool sweaters anytime soon, that doesn't mean we can't get excited about the idea of fall and its many festive occasions. At Mission Viejo Florist, we celebrate the season with our fall floral collection!
Blooms For Fall Occasions & Decor
Fall is a giver of gorgeous colors and textures with orange and yellow lilies, roses and gerberas and branches with colorful red and golden leaves. Its palette adds warmth and elegance to weddings and events, as well as intimate celebrations of birthdays and anniversaries. Often, the best reason to send fall flowers is no reason at all. Send someone you love a beautiful bouquet of “Just Because” fall flowers to brighten their day and warm their heart.
Adding fall plants and stems into seasonal decor is a quick way to spruce up your home, office or outdoor living spaces. Choose a lovely planter of chrysanthemums for the front porch, set a beautiful bowl of sunflowers to your desk at work, or place a bouquet of dahlias on the coffee table. Bringing in the plants and flowers of fall lends a festive atmosphere that energizes the mind and refreshes the soul. Read More about Fall-Themed Flowers For An Autumn Atmosphere »
