.single #maincontent .img-featured { object-position: top; } Want to stand out from the Secret Santa pack this year?

Secret Santa is a great way to ensure that everyone at work or in a group of friends gets a gift this year, without breaking the bank. As much a game as a nifty gift swap, it brings people together for the common purpose of opening presents, celebrating and just generally being in the spirit. Once the identity of each Santa is revealed, the gig - but not the fun - is up. Read More about Sweet Secret Santa Gifts »

Holiday Office Decor That Dazzles

We're all familiar with the standard scheme for holiday office decor. Poinsettias poised around the doorway, evergreen wreaths hanging out front. And if we're lucky, a full-on Christmas tree we decorate year after year, set up well before the holiday office party. At Mission Viejo Florist, we embrace every effort to bring some seasonal cheer to the workplace (or any place, for that matter). And there's something wonderful about the classic floral decor we return to again and again to brighten up where we work and - let's face it - spend much of our time. But we also love introducing a fresh take on decorating the office for the holidays. Read More about Holiday Office Decor That Dazzles »

Flowers to Celebrate National Sweetest Day

Just over 100 years ago in Cleveland OH, a group of candy company executives decided to start their own annual event. Dubbed "Sweetest Day", the inaugural celebration included these companies handing out candy and sweets to local orphans and shut-ins. Although their stated purpose was to let these people know that they were not forgotten members of society, critics say a more cynical motivation for the initiative - accusing the companies of trying to manufacture a new holiday that would benefit their pocketbooks. No matter what the original intent, Sweetest Day has survived down through the years as an opportunity to encourage and support those in our lives who may be struggling in one way or another. Although candy is still routinely given, any kind gesture is considered an appropriate way to celebrate the day. For floral designs and gifts sure to lift someone's spirits on October 21, stop by Mission Viejo Florist.  Read More about Flowers to Celebrate National Sweetest Day »

Sending Grandparents Day Flowers

Grandparents Day is a special holiday with a dual purpose. The day was instituted by Congress in 1978, but the original idea for the observance came from Marian McQuade, a mother and grandmother. Her vision was to set aside time for grandparents to shares stories and history with the younger generations; and for the younger folks to have the opportunity not only to learn, but to learn to appreciate the legacy of their family. At Mission Viejo Florist, we are grateful for any opportunity to promote togetherness and family!

Father’s Day Gifts & Ideas for Him

Father's Day celebrated it's 50th anniversary last year, having only been instituted in 1966 when Lyndon Johnson signed it into law. The holiday was inspired by Mother's Day, and pushed to the forefront by a woman whose father had raised 6 children on his own. To this day, we still honor the heroics and sacrifices made by our Dads. They rarely receive accolades, they rarely accept praise - but they are often the most special men in our lives. There are more than 71 million dads in the United States today, but the most amazing dad is yours - and Mission Viejo Florist would love to help you to honor your dad. Fast Fact: Fathers Day gifts generally run along the same themes - sporting goods, hardware, or clothing. This year, look for Father's Day gifts that are original and express how unique he is - after all, he probably doesn't need another necktie.  Read More about Father’s Day Gifts & Ideas for Him »
