In summer, everything grows a little faster, from grass to kids to daylight hours. We spend more time outside, soaking in the warmth of the sun and the fresh air of the season. Summer memories just might include the bright showy flowers cultivated in neighborhood gardens or found growing wild alongside dirt roads. At Rebel Hill Florist, we’re creating artistic summer arrangements that remind us of summer days amid the blooms.
On May 5, 1868, General John A. Logan, who was the leader of a northern Civil War veterans organization suggested that later that month, the nation should gather together for a national day of remembrance to honor the thousands of soldiers who lost the lives in the bloodiest battle in U.S. history. He suggested that on May 30, 1868, people all over the country should take flowers and other decorations to the cemeteries where soldiers who died in combat were buried. He chose that particular date for Decoration Day (as it was called then) because that date had no connection to any of the war’s battles.
Mother’s Day is inching up on it, and before we know it, the day will be here. In the spirit of the occasion, the Rebel Hill Florist team of experienced floral designers is hard at work, creating the most spectacular flower arrangements they can conceive of – all to provide the Nashville community with flower gifts that every mom will love. After all, we are the Experts in the Art of Expression.
We’re getting close to the end of the school year. It’s an exciting time for graduates – regardless of whether they’re graduating from grade school, middle school, high school, or college. It represents the end of one chapter of their lives and the beginning of a new chapter – whatever that may hold for each graduate. The Rebel Hill Florist team is eager to help people throughout the Nashville community make each graduation, the special event it is and should be for graduates.
During the first week of May, we honor people who make significant contributions to our lives every day. These unsung heroes are dedicated professionals who work tirelessly, and an unofficial week-long observance in their honor is the least we can do. Nurses’ Week or National Nurses’ Week starts on Sunday, May 6, 2018, and it ends on Saturday, May 12, 2018. National Nurses’ Day is observed on May 12 because that’s the birthdate of Florence Nightengale, the founder of the modern-day profession of nursing. National Teacher Day takes place on May 8, 2018, and National Teacher Appreciation Week occurs from May 7, 2018, until May 11, 2018. And Rebel Hill Florist is proud to be your go-to source for the most beautiful flower gifts you can give these distinguished professionals to show your gratitude.
Ever since 1970, when Americans celebrated Earth Day for the first time, April 22 has continued to be the designated date for Earth Day celebrations. On the most basic level, Earth Day is a day for celebrating clean air, clean land, and clean water. On a broader scale, the Farmer’s Almanac reminds us that Earth Day is all about celebrating Earth’s natural beauty. To the Rebel Hill Florist team, no celebration is worthwhile unless it includes beautiful cut flowers, and blooming and green plants.
Administrative Professionals Day is an opportunity for companies to draw attention to those who are so vital to a smooth-flowing workplace. On the last Wednesday in April, companies honor their administrative professionals. This is a great time to focus on a little “desktop awareness.” What is desktop awareness? It’s an opportunity to dress up your desktop or workspace, drawing attention to your area as you are honored for the services you provide for your company. Flowers from Rebel Hill Florist can be the perfect touch.
Spring is in the air! All around us the flowers have started to bloom and trees have begun to bud. Their sweet smells can put a smile on many people’s faces. Bringing the beautiful glow into your home or office can be a great way to celebrate the season and light up your home. Rebel Hill Florist has designed several brilliant bouquets and arrangements that look like a springtime garden for your home. They are the perfect accent to any spring decor.
Spring is finally here, although that may be a subject for debate in many parts of the country. While Mother Nature continues to tease us with tastes of warmer weather, we know that climate is a fickle thing, and you can’t count on anything when it comes to weather – except for the unpredictable. But you can count on Rebel Hill Florist to provide you with a wide range of flowers and flowering plants with which to fill your home or to give as gifts – for Easter, or any other occasion.
The arrival of Daylight’s Savings Time is supposed to be a sign that spring’s arrival is just around the corner. But what the calendar says and what Mother Nature does don’t always agree. As a result, we’re left to wait impatiently for an end to wintry weather, warmer temperatures, and the sight and smell of fresh flowers in our gardens and all around us. In the meantime, you can rely on Rebel Hill Florist to offer a wide variety of spring flower arrangements that will appeal to your senses of sight and smell.
