Daisies for Days On Earth Day

Earth Day is coming back around again (April 22), giving our global community a time to remember what we cherish about our great planet and the chance to renew our commitment to preserving it. Here in Orange County, there are many events happening that make celebrating the Earth fun and informative, including recycling drives, garden shows, festivals, hikes and more. That's just the tip of the iceberg---our community is invested in doing what we can to provide good stewardship to Mother Earth. Here at Mission Viejo Florist, we think it's just as important to enjoy our planet's bountiful natural resources and riches in the form of flowers. Read More about Daisies for Days On Earth Day »

A Stunning Refresher Piece For Your Home

Every time spring rolls around, the design team here at Mission Viejo Florist feels a sense of renewal and re- invigoration. Certainly, working with the season's blooms has something to do with that, but we also know that for many people, this is a time to clear away the old and introduce the new. We do our big spring cleans, planting, replacing old and failing items with new ones, and lightening up our decor around this time. We find the best way to do this last one is by introducing some fresh, vibrant plants and flowers. Read More about A Stunning Refresher Piece For Your Home »

Buy Yourself Some Tranquility

Here at Mission Viejo Florist, we're well versed in all of the benefits flowers offer the people who spend time with them. After all, we basically live with fresh blooms and plants, so we can fully attest to how they uplift the mood, soothe the soul and calm the mind. We also believe that it's an important act of self-care to buy yourself flowers from time to time, and if we were doctors, we'd write you a prescription for just that.

Making Meaning Through Flowers

There are plenty of occasions in which to offer flowers, and many of them are holidays. Of course we love them all, but some of the best we've seen have nothing to do with an actual event or holiday, they have to do with a personally meaningful occasion between the giver and the one who receives the gift. In fact, here at Mission Viejo Florist, these are some of our favorite flower exchanges because they are unique. We love to see what people do for these personal events.

Add A Dash Of Pantone’s Purple To Your Winter Palette

We here at Mission Viejo Florist are fully embracing Pantone's pick for Color of the Year 2018, Ultra Violet. The color experts made their announcement after the usual annual meeting with palette professionals from around the world, all of them weighing in on what color might best capture the spirit of the times. They concluded that this rich, intriguing shade was it. Which is great for us, because we've been working with purple for forever. And we like to see it in floral designs because it always adds a touch of mystery and complexity. Read More about Add A Dash Of Pantone’s Purple To Your Winter Palette »

Give Them Something Good On Galentine’s Day

Valentine's Day, roses, chocolate . . . all of that is really nice, but this year, we're looking ahead to a little something called Galentine's Day, a fictional holiday devoted to celebrating the love between female friends. And it's a long overdue one in our opinion here at Mission Viejo Florist. The idea came about from a 2010 episode of Parks and Recreation, which had main character Leslie Knope taking all her girls out for a long lunch to celebrate their love for each other and to exchange gifts. At one point Knope declares it "the best day of the year," a sentiment that captured the public's imagination and made Galentine's Day a potential reality for women.

The Prettiest Gift You Can Give All Year Long

One of the best resolutions you can make for yourself at the New Year is to practice a little more self-love for the next 365. We here at Mission Viejo Florist aren't talking about renewing your gym membership or tackling a new diet; instead, we're suggesting you treat yourself to more of whatever makes you happy - spa days, travel, time with friends. We also think you should invest in items for yourself and your home that support health and well being. One of those things, in our humble opinion, is flowers.

How Flowers Can Help Us Heal

Flowers have long been known to have healing properties. For centuries they've been used medicinally, and some consider flower essence itself to have profound effects on the mind and body. Today, science tells us that we aren't wrong. A 2008 study showed that hospitalized patients who had flowers or a potted plant in their room actually used less pain medication and had lower blood pressure than those who had rooms without any fresh blooms or plants. Research shows that those who exchange flowers tend to have better relationships with friends and family, which in turn promotes well being. At Mission Viejo Florist, we maintain a collection of flowers that we think are ideal arrangements for every get well scenario. Read More about How Flowers Can Help Us Heal »
